Plan a trip to Northern California and discover San Francisco's iconic Golden Gate Bridge and tour the State Capitol Building in Sacramento. Or, travel down to Southern California to mingle with celebrities in Los Angeles, laze on the beach in San Diego, and hike through a desert wilderness at Joshua Tree National Park. Whatever you're looking for, you'll find it with a camper rental in California.

The best time to book an RV rental in California depends on where you're going. Southern California is best in the spring when it's still cool enough to explore the great outdoors, and there are fewer tourists.

The weather stays comfortably in the mid-70s, and it's harvesting season in Napa Valley. Treat you and your crew to an exciting trip across one of the sunniest states in the country with a California motorhome rental.
