While free camping is only allowed in designated areas throughout the USA, there are plenty of locations in which you can do this.

Most rental companies in the USA offer roadside assistance that is available 24/7 by ringing a local or free number. Mechanical breakdowns are covered by the rental company (for example, engine and electrical faults).
With many suppliers, repairs under $50 (US dollars) do not require authorisation and will be reimbursed upon return of the rental (with a receipt). However, it’s still recommended to ring roadside assistance for any troubles.
A wide variety of motorhomes are available in the USA, from smaller station wagons up to large motorhomes. Some of the common types include:
Class A motorhomes are often built on a commercial truck or bus chassis and run on either diesel or gas, depending on the type of engine.
Usually, Class A vehicles are fully loaded with all amenities and have a large living space.
Some Class B vehicles include a toilet or freshwater tank, but not all do. Class B vehicles usually have basic cooking equipment, folding beds and limited storage space.
Class B vehicles are a good option for short-term getaways.
Class C vehicles are a smaller version of the Class A motorhome. They are built on a truck or van cutaway chassis and usually have a gas-powered engine.
Class C motorhomes generally have sleeping quarters above the cab and more sleeping space in the back. Some Class Cs also have a slide-out option that increases the living space when the motorhome is parked.
Class C vehicles come equipped with a good number of facilities, including a self-contained toilet, refrigerator, heating or AC, and cooking facilities.
Class C vehicles are very versatile and are great for both short- and long-term getaways.
