RVshare, the online RV rental platform, said its latest data revealed Northern California as a top RV travel hub in the U.S.
Booking insights revealed San Francisco-based owners rented their RVs out for nearly 10,000 nights. Travelers have spent nearly 250,000 nights under the California stars, RVshare said.
With neighboring hotspots near San Francisco such as Yosemite National Park and Big Sur, these attractions have RV renters flocking to Northern California for their next bucket list camping trip.
RVshare Travel Expert Maddi Bourgerie said, “On average, an RV rental in the San Francisco area costs about $2,000 for a five-night trip, which includes transportation and accommodations. This makes RV travel a cost-effective option in an increasingly popular and expensive market. San Francisco and its neighboring cities make for a hot destination and easy starting point for travelers, and RV travel is an easy and affordable way to see the area on your own terms.”
With nearly 7,000 rentals available in California, RV travelers have numerous choices to match their preferences and needs. Of those units that are available for rent through RVshare, nearly 4,000 offer delivery as an amenity to their renters. This increasingly popular add-on, especially for those who are new to the RV travel experience, enables renters to have the rental delivered to their destination so they can avoid driving and setting up the RV themselves. RV owners in the Bay area have also found RVshare to provide them with a profitable business.
From the Golden Gate Bridge to Sonoma Raceway, Big Sur, Yosemite National Park and Sequoia National Park, RV travelers find an abundance of RV options in the San Francisco area, RVshare said.
