Is free camping allowed in the US?

While free camping is only allowed in designated areas throughout the USA, there are plenty of locations where 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 parkp for a night, many of which have facilities included.

Can a child seat or booster seat be fitted in an RV?

Most RV rental companies in the US have vehicle options that allow child safety 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.

Can I travel from the US to Mexico in my rental RV?

Generally, no. Most RV suppliers restrict travel into Mexico for RVs rented in the US. El Monte is the only exception to this, however, additional insurance is required.

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 paved 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 travel is generally allowed. However, it 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.
