Once you've decided to take an RV trip in Idaho, it's time to decide which class of RV you'd like to rent. Do you want a towable rig that requires a truck or similar tow vehicle, or would an all-in-one motorcoach work better for your needs?
The largest towable rig available is Class A, which is about the size of a bus and loaded with amenities. Class C RVs are about the size of a moving truck but still comfortable. The smallest motorcoach type is the Class B campervan.
The largest towable RV is the fifth wheel. These units tend to be luxurious and require a vehicle with a specialized in-bed tow plate. Bumper-pull travel trailers are smaller towable rigs that you pull with a heavy-duty truck or SUV. Another bumper-pull type is the toy hauler, which is a travel trailer with space for ATVs, bikes and other fun travel toys. Finally, the smallest towable is the pop-up or fold-up trailer. These units are small and lightweight with canvas sides that you unfold when you get to camp.
