Best RV Rentals for Road Tripping in Colorado in 2022

Americans have gone a little RV crazy over the last year. People in the United States are buying, driving, and camping in RVs now more than ever. If you’re keen to jump on the bandwagon but not ready to buy your own, renting an RV can be a great first step. With the Rocky Mountains, the Mile High City, and some of the country’s best outdoor adventures, there’s no better place for test driving an RV than a road trip through the Centennial State. Here are the best RV rental options in Colorado.

RVShare RV Rental

RVShare RV Rental Colorado

Think of RVShare as the “Airbnb of RVs.” This peer-to-peer service connects RV owners directly with RV renters. There are nearly a thousand listings throughout the state for those looking to explore Colorado and the Rockies. Renters can find everything here, from adventure vans and rugged teardrop trailers to couples-friendly towables and full-sized models with room for the whole family. Plus, it’s easy to zero in on the exact RV length, size, and amenities — kitchen, outdoor shower, satellite TV, etc. — that you need.

It’s a great option for RV’ing newbies looking to try their hand at driving and parking an RV for the first time. The company boasts 130 rental locations throughout the United States and Canada.

Outdoorsy RV Rental

Outdoorsy RV Rental in Colorado

Like RVShare, Outdoorsy is another peer-to-peer RV rental service. The site has more than a thousand listings in Colorado alone, so users certainly aren’t starved for choice. In addition to the latest models, it’s a great place to find niche, vintage RVs, including Volkswagen Westfalia Vanagons and old-school Airstreams, too. Many owners also offer deep discounts on extended periods, so it pays to search out monthly (or longer) RV rentals.

A-Lodge Adventure Van Rental

A-Lodge Adventure Van Rental in Colorado

Colorado’s A-Lodge is part adventure hotel, part adventure van rental company. Guests at either the Boulder or Lyon locations can book a luxury adventure van to take biking, climbing, skiing, or hiking. The fully self-contained vehicles feature everything an avid outdoorsman needs for a weekend or a week in the mountains. Outdoor showers, oversized sinks, mini-fridges, queen-sized beds, and solar power are all standard. Plus, a dedicated “gear closet” in every van promises plenty of room for luggage and gear.

RV Repositioning Deals in Colorado

Keystone Carbon Fifth-Wheel RV Travel Trailer

The recent boom in RV rentals has included many one-way rentals. That means that at any given time, there are rental RVs scattered around the country in places they’re not supposed to be. Some of the larger rental networks like Cruise America offer deep discounts for anyone willing to drive these “lost” RVs back home. Sites like Immova routinely list rental deals as low as $1 per day and even include a fuel stipend. If you’re budget-conscious and deal savvy, it pays to shop or call around and ask about one-way or “repositioning” deals. These are often announced suddenly and don’t last long. If you find one and it fits your travel plans, don’t sleep on it. Book immediately.

Ah, Colorado. With such a large portion of the Southern Rockies in this state, it's hardly surprising that so many of the best ski resorts in the US are found here. Although many of these feature among the most advanced and gnarly terrain available to anyone hitting the slopes, there are plenty of Colorado ski resorts that are not just suitable for beginners, but perfect for them.

There's nothing straightforward about finding yourself a ski resort, unfortunately. Even what seasoned skiers consider to be the best ski resorts in the world don't work for everyone. Just as each ski resort is different, each skier and snowboarder has unique needs. Would you prefer a quiet mountain to learn on, with only a few other riders? What about a buzzing apres-ski scene so you can hit the bar after your lessons? Or perhaps you're heading out with a whole crew who all ride at different levels. Whatever you're looking for, if you want somewhere to learn in Colorado, we've got a resort for you.
