Summary: Renting an RV for a camping trip could be a little pricy but there are various reasons why it might be worth your money.
If you are planning for an upcoming camping trip and are trying to make reservations, you should consider renting an RV. Driving an RV would be more expensive than using your own car but there are some advantages to renting an RV that make it worth the investment.
The Price of Comfort
Going on a camping trip is a bit different from going on a standard trip out of town. When you are staying at a hotel in a neighboring town or city you do not have to worry about your sleeping situation, where you will bathe, and where you can hang out and unwind. If you were to drive up to the mountains with your own car and just a standard tent, you would have to figure a lot of these things out.
Rather than sleeping outside in a cold tent, you could sleep indoors on a comfortable mattress. Even though it could get cold inside of the RV without any heaters, the cold winds will be one less thing for you to worry about.
Everything in One Spot
Another big advantage to using an RV is being able to have almost everything you could need during your trip in one spot. Depending on the RV you choose to rent, you could have a refrigerator, functioning sink, shower, and table all inside. If you do not want to worry about buying furniture for the various situations you might find yourself in, you can rent an RV that already has all of these basic pieces.
