Orlando is a wonderful place to explore by RV. The area’s mild weather means you can visit year-round and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, or just relax while appreciating the Florida beauty. RVshare makes an RV rental in Orlando easy and helps you find the perfect one for your needs.
As you begin your search for the perfect Orlando RV rental, you’ll first want to decide what class of motorhome you need. A Class A motorhome is the largest and has the most amenities for campers. They also tend to be the most expensive. You can expect to pay about $280 a night for an Orlando motorhome rental, although they range in price from under $100 to $680 per night. You can also save on your nightly rental price when you rent for longer - you’ll pay $252 a night if you rent for a week, and $209 per night when you rent for a month.
Class B campervans are smaller, easier to drive and set up, and can fit just about any campsite. They’re a great option if you’re traveling solo or with just one other person. You can rent a Class B van near Orlando for $159 a night, although there are some that are lower in price and several that are higher. If you rent for a week, you’ll pay $143 a night, and if you rent for a month, you’ll pay $135 a night.
Class C campers are a good compromise between the other two classes. Class C campers have more room like a Class A, but are smaller like a Class B because they’re built on a truck chassis. You can rent a Class C motorhome in Orlando for about $195 a night. If you rent for a week, you’d pay $181 a night, and when you rent for a month you’ll pay $167 a night.
Orlando has so much to offer! You could spend your entire trip enjoying Disney World and other nearby amusement parks like Universal Studios. You can explore the city’s art and culture. Or you can be at the ocean in just about an hour, and enjoy a day on the sand.
