Most rental companies 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 authorization and will be reimbursed upon return of the rental (with a receipt), however, it’s still recommended to ring roadside assistance for any troubles.
As in the rest of the US, free camping is only allowed in designated areas, which can include national parks, state parks, truck stops, or rest stops as well as certain parking lots with permission from the store manager.
California is home to numerous RV parks and campgrounds, which cost around $35–$60 (USD) per night. These are suitable for all vehicle types, from travel trailers to larger recreational vehicles.
