Boasting high deserts, shrublands, mixed forests, numerous bodies of water, and volcanoes, Oregon is one of the most geographically diverse states in the United States. With that in mind, it’s a perfect choice for RV travel, especially if you have a couple of weeks at your disposal.
Where To Rent An RV In Oregon?
Will your route lie along the seaside areas of Oregon? If so, then you have plenty of options for RV rental, whether if renting from a local dealer or online platforms like Outdoorsy or RVshare. You will have especially many locations and dealers to choose from in Salem, the state’s capital, and the state’s largest city Portland.
You have a few rental locations in the southern seaside areas of Oregon as well.
However, if coming from the east, know that you won’t have as many options as in the western, beachfront territories of Oregon. This shouldn’t be a problem though since you will probably come to Oregon for its beaches anyway.
