Maine is one of the jewels of the US East Coast. Here, you can find beautiful views, plenty of water activities, as well as a number of local iconic foods to try. In one good sweep, you can enjoy this all in an RV journey through the state!
Where To Rent An RV In Maine?
There are a few dozen RV dealers in Maine, and they are all situated close to the state’s shoreline. Not that the lack of rental locations to the north is a problem – you probably will be staying in southern Maine closer to the shoreline anyway.
You, of course, have the option of online rental, but you don’t really need online platforms since local dealers are positioned conveniently enough. On the other hand, you would want to search listings on platforms like RVshare or Outdoorsy if you had very specific needs that an RV dealer cannot satisfy.
Expect to pay around $75-$150 for towable RVs and $150-$300 for motorhomes when searching through online platforms. Local dealers may offer cheaper rental, but owners on RVshare or Outdoorsy often include free miles and generator hours in their rental.
