Rent an RV for fall or holiday travel, as extra housing for family and guests, or as a spare office for working from home. An RV can also add a second kitchenette when you’re preparing holiday meals.
In Georgia, fall is the perfect time to go camping. Campgrounds are less crowded, the humidity has dropped, and the mountains will soon be sporting fall color. It’s the perfect time to gather around a campfire with family or friends.
Even if you aren’t the outdoorsy type, you may be in need of the extra space or distance that a rental RV can provide – when you’re traveling to visit family, when you need another guest room for family who come to visit you, or as a dedicated office space when you’re working from home.

RV rentals through RVshare
The popularity of RVs has skyrocketed in 2020, driving up prices and shrinking the supply of RVs to purhase. Fortunately, online services like RVshare make it easy to find a camper or RV to rent.
RVshare is like AirBnB of recreational vehicles! The service allows you to search for available vehicles and rent directly from the owner.
RVshare has been around since 2013. It was the first and is currently the largest peer-to-peer RV rental marketplace.
The company has more than 100,000 vehicles available – everything from affordable travel trailers to luxury motorhomes that can accommodate any adventure, whether it’s a weekend of camping close to home or a cross-country drive to see someplace new.
You could even consider a rental RV the next time you need temporary lodgings for family coming into town, or for short-term business stays.
How You Can Use Your Rental From RVshare:
Vacations and off-season camping — These days, people want an alternative to a traditional vacation that involves airports and hotels (or squeezing the extended family into a small house for the holidays). An RV lets you take the family on a cross-country trip and bring your ‘hotel’ with you.
Guest housing — More and more people are opting to use their RVs as temporary housing for guests. (Hey, the cousins from Holiday Vacation were on to something!) It allows family members to be close – but not too close. Park an RV at your home and gain an extra kitchen (or a kitchenette) for your holiday cooking. Park it at a nearby RV park and gain lots of extra space for visiting relatives.
Transportation and lodging — For travel, the benefits of an RV are obvious: rather than flying to your destination and spending hours in a mask, you hit the open road with everything you need, including the kitchen sink. No more lost luggage! Both your transportation and housing are taken care of for the duration of your trip.
Office space or conference housing — An RV can even provide temporary office space for those who need a quiet place to work. No more interruptions during conference calls! And if you must travel for work, you can take your office with you.
What Kind of RV Can You Rent?
RVshare has rentals available in every state of the U.S., including Georgia. The inventory includes pop-ups, camper vans, travel trailers, motorhomes, and more.
RVshare.com lets you search by location, dates, and number of people you need to accommodate. Then you can filter the results on a variety of options and features, and sort by relevance, distance, or price. The advanced search functions lets you get quite specific about what you’re looking for – whether you need an option that’s pet-friendly, budget-friendly, or anything else.
