Whether it is taking in the natural wonders of Tahquamenon Falls State Park in the Eastern Upper Peninsula or visiting Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Maritime Museum on the shores of Lake Michigan, a recreational vehicle makes travel easy, fun, and affordable. There are more than 1,000 campgrounds in the Great Lakes State. The land is home to five national parks and over 100 state parks. Overall, Michigan is a great place to enjoy an RV rental. To help you find the best camper rental, we’ve selected what we consider the best RV rental agencies in Michigan. Here are our picks.


Outdoorsy is a peer-to-peer marketplace that invites RV owners to advertise and hire out their vehicles to people needing an RV rental. Vehicles come in multiple sizes and styles, from 2-person trailers to much more spacious vehicles that can sleep larger groups. One big advantage of booking an RV through a company like Outdoorsy is the cheaper deals over normal rental agencies. When we searched for RVs in Michigan, we found many options available for pick-up across the state.

Among them was a brand new and pet friendly 2021 Wildwood 29VBUD camper trailer. This tow-behind camper has a gross weight 7,728 lbs. The unit sleeps 10 and rents for $684 plus fees and insurance per week. For a small RV rental in a micro fashion the 2013 American Teardrop Travel Trailer is perfect for parties of one who only need a little storage and a place to sleep. We found a perfectly pink model renting for only $300 plus fees and insurance.

Another RV sharing rental service is RVshare where owners can list their RVs and renters can search from locations throughout the US. The website offers a variety of tips, destination guides, and helpful articles dedicated to enjoying travel by recreation vehicle. When we searched for RVs in Michigan, the results turned up many options.

For those who want to go big and travel in extreme style the Entegra Coach Anthem 44SL is a great choice. This 2015, 45 ft. Class A luxurious motor coach features four slide-outs for added space and comfort, a fully stocked kitchen, and a full complement of electronics. This electric run camper (amenities) costs $3,594 plus fees and insurance per week. For the family travelling with pets, the convenience of a Class C motorhome may be the perfect fit. We found a 31 ft. Jayco Greyhawk equipped with a master bedroom and twin bunks. This model, which costs $1,470 plus fees and insurance per week, comes with 150 free miles per day. Those looking for a small RV rental will enjoy a pop-up trailer like the 1998 Viking for $600 plus fees and insurance per week.
