In most cases, miles (kilometres) are capped at a daily rate, and additional fees will be incurred if you exceed the limit.

Can I pick up my motorhome rental at Los Angeles Airport?

While rentals are limited directly at the Los Angeles Airport terminal, most rental companies are just a short distance away.

Many campervan rental companies offer a complimentary shuttle along with your rental.

It is worth noting that if you are arriving from an international/long haul flight, you will not be able to pick up your rental vehicle until the next day.

Where can I camp in Los Angeles?

As in the rest of America, free camping is only allowed in designated areas, which can include national parks, truck stops or rest stops as well as certain parking lots with permission from the store manager.

Southern California is home to many campgrounds and RV parks, which usually cost around $35–60 (USD) per night. These are suitable for all types of vehicles, from truck campers to trailer-style campers such as toy haulers.

Some popular choices in the Los Angeles area include the Hollywood RV Park, Dockweiler RV Park and Walnut RV Park.

Are one-way rentals available in Los Angeles?

Yes, many rental companies in Los Angeles offer one-way rentals, making it a great location to start your road trip.

As the largest city on the West Coast, Los Angeles is a great gateway to many other destinations in California, including San Diego in the south and San Francisco in the north.

Are there any restrictions on where I can take my RV in the US?

Most rental companies only allow their vehicles to be driven on sealed/bitumen roads.

In addition, note the following restrictions regarding specific areas:

  • Mexico - With the exception of El Monte, travel to Mexico is prohibited in rental vehicles.
  • Death Valley - Restrictions can vary between suppliers but is generally allowed. However, travel may be restricted during certain times of the year. Check with your rental supplier for full details.
  • New York City/Downtown Manhattan - RVs are generally not allowed due to vehicle height restrictions around the city.
  • Canada - RVs are generally allowed; however, travel to certain locations may be restricted during colder seasons.

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.
