Discover California

The glitz and glamor of Hollywood, mile after mile of stunning wine country, and some of the best national parks in the US are just a few reasons 50 million people visit California each year.

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.
