Renting a campervan can be a more exciting option than buying it in some cases. For example, before diving headfirst to buy your first van, the ideal would be to make at least a couple of trips in a rental. Not only to see if this way of traveling is for you or not, but also what characteristics we will look for when buying our vehicle.
Everything You Need To Know Before Renting A Camper Van
- Not all vans are the same (nor are they equally equipped).
Even if you are the queen of improvisation, you will have to plan a little to rent your camper. Think about where you want to go, what activities you want to do, how much time you will spend inside the van, how many people you will be, what you have to take, and choose the most suitable vehicle.
If you are going to spend a lot of time inside the van, you will want to stand up inside so you do not get overwhelmed. If you are only going to use it to sleep, take into account your size and needs. Remember that even if a van or motorhome says it has space for six people, it does not mean that it is comfortable. Likewise, depending on the nature of the trip, you will need the van to have a bathroom, static heating, hot water, a refrigerator of a specific size, etc.
Finally, don’t forget to ask if the camper comes equipped with bedding, kitchen utensils, camping chairs, and tables or if you have to bring it yourself.
- Choosing your adventure companions well is even more critical.
A good partner in crime is essential to the success of any trip. But when we talk about spending several days living together in a minimal space and with little or no privacy.
Speak clearly about your needs, preferences, and expectations. Ensure that everyone wants the same thing and that you are aware of the possible limitations and inconveniences of a trip of this type. You don’t want to end up spending your vacation in a van with someone who wakes up at the slightest noise and is irritable when they haven’t slept well. Or with someone unable to maintain a minimum of order when storage space is minimal and expected. Depending on the plan, maybe your friend who can’t go a day without a shower is the best partner either. Therefore, define the type of trip well and filter better.
