Canada’s RV rental options

Canada’s rental options cover anything from fold-out camping trailers to monster RV trucks. Choose the one which is right for you, and be aware of things like the size of beds- anything smaller than 6 feet long is not likely to be comfortable for a full-grown adult. Price will of course play a factor, as bigger is generally more expensive, although not always. The age of the vehicle and amenities available play a part in the rental price, and also determine which RV is the best for your needs.

2 Berth

2 berth vehicles are more likely to be called campervans, and are common in the southern hemisphere and amongst the more adventurous road trippers. Essentially just converted vans, these have very limited facilities, often only a bed and a simple gas stove. They are great for those on a budget, and intrepid travellers who want to get to meet new friends by using the shared facilities at campgrounds.

2 Berth - Shower and Toilet

These are a step up from the 2 berth sleepervan and are often luxurious. Still built on a van base, they contain sleeping space for two, kitchen facilities and a shower and toilet for improved ablution abilities. The self-contained nature of these allows for free camping where it is legal. 2 Berth STs can be found in petrol or diesel configurations, and with automatic or manual gearboxes. Their small size makes them easy to manoeuvre and allows them to navigate.

3 Berth

A 3-berth motorhome is usually a campervan-style vehicle, so is lightweight and easy to handle. They are great for a family of 2 adults and one child, with one double bed and one single bed. Cooking, bathroom and other facilities range from vehicle to vehicle- some will have shower and toilet facilities, some won’t- so check this before hiring.

4 Berth

These larger motorhomes are generally built on a truck chassis. They have much roomier living quarters than the van-based campervans, and often are configured with a double bed above the cab and a dining area which converts into another. Equipped with kitchen and bathroom facilities, these are great for families of up to 4, especially with small children.

5 Berth

These are built on a truck chassis and can reach up to 7.2 metres in length. They can have a wide range of layouts but generally have three double beds, of which one is smaller and suited to two children or one adult. These large vehicles are a great for families, groups of friends or even a couple who prefer a bit of space to move around. Diesel or petrol, manual or automatic, these can have a range of different features. They are equipped with kitchen and bathroom facilities, and often have such luxuries as televisions, full air conditioning and heating, freezers and DVD players.

7 Berth

For those with big families or a couple who wants plenty of space, a 7-berth motorhome is the way to go! They are RV-style vehicles usually built on a long wheel base. These are generally full of home comforts including cooking facilities, hot and cold water, shower, toilet and more. Excellent for a large family, and they are self-contained so allow you to drop off the grid for a day or two.

8 Berth

An 8 berth motorhome is fantastic for families with kids although they can also cater to up to 8 adults. 8-berthers are usually Class A or Class C RVs and have all the bells and whistles, often including slide-outs for extra living space. Beds can come in many configurations, often with a mix of double and single beds including one large bed above the cab.

9 Berth

A 9-berth motorhome is a rare find! These are usually Class A, built on a bus chassis and have slide outs to introduce more space when parked. They are perfect for a large family as the bedding is often configured with bunks in place of standard singles. All bells and whistles are included!

Truck Camper

Common in North America, truck campers are simply RVs which are built over pick-up trucks, and can also be called slide-ins or cab-overs. These are very versatile and hardy-they can go anywhere a pickup could go. In fact, occasionally the camper section can be removed from the truck if need be. Truck campers can commonly sleep from 2 up to 4 people, with a double bed over the cab and seating areas elsewhere which can convert into beds. They are great for an adventurous couple or a family of 3.
