Deciding what type of vehicle to rent or buy can be a tough decision and will depend on a couple factors such as length of trip, activities you’re interested in, and desired comfort level. We broke it down for you into a basic guideline of how to choose the right vehicle for you!
RV’s give you that convenience and flexibility all in one! This type of vehicle is for those drawn to adventure but not willing to totally rough it. It allows you to travel in comfort and often can feel like a home on wheels. Plus you will never have to worry about finding a hotel or Airbnb.
Pros: Tons of space, includes heat and AC, full kitchen and can sleep couples and families with ease.
Cons: Can be difficult to drive, hard to park and can be expensive.
These have just enough to make living on the road or long adventures possible! Smaller in size compared to an RV, sprinter vans allow you to adventure into the backcountry or fit into those more remote campsites. They come in various sizes, makes, models, and a range of amenities. For example, some include a hot shower and a bathroom, others have just a bed and a kitchenette.
Pros: Easier to drive than an RV, can have amenities, super versatile and flexible, especially if your trip isn’t entirely planned out.
Cons: Can be hard to drive, hard to park. If you have more than 2 people it’s not a lot of space.
With an off-roading vehicle and an adventurous attitude, you will be able to go anywhere! Drive into the mountains, camp out on deserted fire roads, or find some mountain biking trails deep in the backcountry with an off-roading 4×4 wheel drive vehicle. Level up your adventure with a rooftop tent attached to your vehicle, allowing you to camp on a rugged terrain so that a campsite isn’t needed.

*Pro Tip: If you’re interested in this type of adventure, considering researching the Overland Expo or Overland Vehicle Rentals to test one out on a trip!
Pros: Can get to any remote location, easy to avoid crowds and heavy weather (rain, snow, etc) is typically not an issue.
Cons: The vehicles don’t have a lot of room and not as many amenity options compared to an RV or Sprinter.
