A limited number of campervan hire companies offer vehicles in Houston. You may wish to check availability in other US destinations.
While free camping is only allowed in designated areas throughout the USA, there are plenty of locations in which you can do this.
Both the US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management care for millions of acres of land where free camping is allowed.
Many retailers and casinos may also allow you to camp for a night in their parking lot with permission from the owner.
There are also truck stops and rest stops where you can pull up for a night, many of which have facilities included.
Most campervan rental companies in the US have vehicle options that allow child seats and booster seats.
Not all vehicles may be compatible with a child seat, and not all companies have seats available to rent.
In most cases, it is the responsibility of the renter to install the child restraint.
Generally, no. Most campervan rental suppliers restrict travel into Mexico for campervans rented in the US. El Monte is the only exception; however, additional insurance is required.
Most rental companies only allow their vehicles to be driven on sealed/bitumen roads.
In addition, note the following restrictions regarding specific areas:
If you take your vehicle where it is not permitted, you will be liable for all damages incurred and an additional fine may be imposed.
Check your rental agreement for any further restrictions regarding your RV rental.
Note: policies vary from supplier to supplier. Always check the T&Cs for your rental.
