Why Rent a Campervan for a Fall Foliage Road Trip
- Peak summer season rates have gone down, meaning you get to rent a campervan for cheap.
- Fall foliage is hard to predict with 100% certainty! Renting a campervan gives you more flexibility to chase the best fall colors (and the best weather) compared to having to be stuck with a hotel booking.
- We offer bedding kits and electric kits with space heaters for rent so you can stay warm at night! If it looks like it’s going to be extra chilly, you can book a campsite with a hookup to use the electric kit with the space heater.
