How Conversion Van Rentals are Changing Road Trips Forever

Enjoy the Freedom and Flexibility of Creating Your Own Itinerary

With a campervan RV rental, you’re not confined to bus schedules or tour routes; you can create your own itinerary based on what you want to see and do the most. If you need road trip ideas, there are plenty of itineraries to choose from. You could hop on California’s iconic Highway 1, and take in the gorgeous views and sites as you venture from San Francisco to Los Angeles, or soak up the sun on a quick trip from Los Angeles to Palm Springs.

Being mobile also allows you to change your travel plans at any moment. If you run into poor weather, you can scoot ahead to your next destination without having to worry about rearranging itineraries and wasting money on unused hotel reservations. If you fall in love with one place, you can stay another day, or another week, without derailing your whole trip.

Pro tip: There are campervan rental companies with unlimited free miles.

Simplify Travel and Save Money on Hotels and Food

A conversion van doubles as both transport and accommodations. You’ll be able to simplify travel plans and save money on hotels and dining out. With a conversion van rental, you don’t have to make multiple hotel reservations, and you’re not tied down to check-in and check-out times. The price of campgrounds in the United States is reasonable, and there are plenty of spots in the American West to camp for free.

With a kitchen on board, you’ll also save money on food, and nothing beats cooking a camp meal surrounded by Joshua Trees or crashing surf. Many campervan rentals come with a fridge, gas stove, sink, and even a microwave so you can make anything from a quick bowl of ramen to a full gourmet meal.

Wake Up To Incredible Scenic Views

Perhaps the best part of traveling by conversion van is the views. With a conversion van rental, you can wake up every single morning in nature—whether it be on a deserted dirt road near Zion National Park, or under the redwoods along the California coast. All you need to do is open the back door of your van and let the first rays of the sunrise in.

 

Enjoy the Convenience of Having Your Own Space

With a campervan rental, there is no need to lug your bags from one hotel to the next or deal with sharing fridge space with hostel mates. This also means all your gear and food are close by, so if you need to pop in for a jacket or enjoy a cup of coffee before your next hike – you don’t have to go very far. Plus, having a bed on board lets you nap or have some quiet time whenever you want. The choices are endless!
