Recreational vehicle - (RV) motorhome and campervan hire
RV or motorhome hire in the USA is the perfect way to pack in as much as you want during your vacation. The USA is a vast country with a variety of climates, geography, time zones and sights. The Altantic is to the East, Pacific to the west, Canada to the north and Mexico to the south. Even if you go to just one State you will probably not have time to enjoy everything. However if you hire a motorhome in the USA you can see many things and set your own itinerary. With your own beds and a kitchen you can just take off and find one of America's great campsites.
Fall (Autumn) in New England, the Grand Canyon, LA, San Fransisco, Florida and Las Vegas are just a few of the favourite places to visit in the USA.

The motorhomes that are on hire will be recent models, maintained, clean and ready to go.

In the USA, each of the 50 states has its own set of traffic laws and regulations, albeit most of them are similar. The motorhome rental company should be able to help with any irregularities, especially if you are visiting more than one state.
Generally the speed limit is 65 miles per hour except where signs indicate slower speeds. Speed limits are strictly enforced by radar in many states (especially the eastern highly populated areas.) The speed limit in front of every school is 15 mph when the warning lights are flashing. You are required to stop in both directions for any school bus with flashing lights. These rules are strictly enforced in every state and have severe penalties for disobedience
The minimum age for driving is 16 in most states but some motorhome rental agencies will have a restriction of 25 years of age.
Nearly every state in the USA require the driver and front passengers to wear seat belts and many states require children to wear seat belts in the back seats.

When you rent a RV in the USA you will find an extensive system of interstate highways and state maintained main roads. Some of the larger highways are toll roads often called turnpikes, but mostly they are free. All major interstate highways running north to south have odd numbers and on the Pacific coast are ordered from I-5 and along the Atlantic coast to I-95. All interstates running east to west are evenly numbered beginning with I-8 and I-10 near the Mexican border to I-94 near Canada.
