Exploring the Best Destinations with Friends in a Motorhome
July 8, 2023 10:00 AM
The California RV road trip is as iconic of a vacation as there is, and at Expedition Motorhomes, we challenge you to find a more fun way to explore the Golden State with friends than behind the wheel of a California RV rental. The world is your oyster with a California motor home rental, and our state boasts destinations for every type of traveler. From quaint beach towns to mountainous escapes, glamorous campgrounds to enjoy in your California RV rental to backcountry sites, and music festivals to remote locations, there truly is something for everyone.
Making Memories with a California Road Trip
Hitting the road with friends is one of the most memorable things you can do. There is just something special about the quality time you get to spend traveling together from Point A to Point B – taking in the sights, sharing playlists, listening to podcasts, and relaxing in the back. The journey can be truly greater than the destination – and the destinations are some of the best in the world. Exploring and adventuring all day before returning to camp to cook delicious food, relax around a campfire, or play games just further builds your sense of community. No minute is wasted when traveling in a California RV rental, and we guarantee that the memories will last a lifetime.
Popular Summer Destinations
The opportunity for adventure in California is limitless. The Golden State boasts nine unique national parks ranging from desert landscapes to beaches to mountains, and the state parks, national forests, and other protected areas in between are often just as breathtaking. Whether you are into hiking, biking, climbing, or water sports, California will deliver. Quaint beach towns dot the coast from San Diego to the Oregon Coast, and the high granite peaks of the Sierra are ripe for adventure. If you’re chasing music and a good party, check out one of the many music festivals that occur across the state virtually every weekend.
Quick Tips to Plan a Memorable Trip
Every California motor home rental trip is different, but here are a handful of tips that can make each unique experience that much more memorable.
Build an Itinerary, but Don’t Stick to It
The sheer amount of things to do in California can be overwhelming, so it is critical to create some semblance of an itinerary. That said, the beauty of traveling by RV is that you have unlimited freedom to stop where you want and experience what you wish to experience. We suggest picking a couple of “must-do” destinations or events to keep you on track while leaving plenty of room for free exploration in between.
Enjoy the Journey
Your time on the road should be as much fun as your time at a destination. Prepare accordingly to make sure you are enjoying every second behind the wheel. Collaborative playlists, good snacks, and some random just-for-fun stops can make the drive that much more memorable.
Have a Camping Plan
While you want to leave plenty of room on your calendar for exploration, you should start each travel day with an idea of where you want to end up. There are a lot of people on the road in the summertime, and it can be a real drag to be looking for an unplanned campsite as the sun goes down.

What Customers Say
It was awesome. It was so great. It was so fantastic. We loved the RV. It was so accommodating. It was only three of us: [me] my husband and my son and we had a wonderful time. Thank you for renting to us and we will definitely be renting again.
From Toronto, Canada. We came down to Expedition to pick up an RV for a special surfing vacation for my son here who turned 15 this week. I gotta tell ya, it’s been an awesome experience. We went up the coast to Santa Barabara and down. We had perfect sites of the beach; looking at the ocean. He got a chance to experience surfing the California way – an overall great experience. RV was just the way to go. Made it a beautiful experience for us. The people at Expedition were perfect; helped us out throughout… were very kind and generous and we just had a great vacation because of it. So I recommend anyone whose thinking about it… Definitely call Expedition. You’ll enjoy it and you won’t regret it.
We flew from Europe and rented a motor home from ExpeditionMotorHomes.com. And, it was a fantastic experience from start to end. When we arrived, we had… the staff was very friendly; taught us how to use the motor home. They had videos online you can practice with and look at. And the actual trip, the quality of the motor home was perfect. This was the first time for my family and I and it will not be the last. We will be doing this again and obviously from the same supplier because everything from start to finish was perfect.
I have rented from this company seven times in the last eight years. They do an amazing job. Most recently, I had errored on my departure date (I should have looked at the contract when they sent it to me!) and when I arrived a day early, they accommodated me. Thank you, Matt, for making a year without Martin easy! I recommend this company to anyone wanting to rent an RV. It’s so much easier than you think.
The Expedition Motorhome family took great care of our family. This is our third straight year renting trailers and RV’s from Expedition and we wouldn’t go anywhere else. They are a small shop with big customer service. The RV’s are in great condition on the inside and under the hood. We drive to the Tahoe area from LA every year and they make the long haul with no problems. We camped with other families who rented from other vendors and had nothing but problems. See you next year!
Was the first time we rented and RV and we had a great experience with Expedition Motor Homes. WE travel with the jamboree 23 ft for about 20 days around California and nevada without any problem.Everything worked the way it should. At the office Martin and Ilda where super nice and helpful with us. Definitely we are coming back!
We had a great experience with Expedition Motor Homes. My family and I rented an RV for a weekend camping trip, something we had never done before. The staff was extremely helpful and informative, and everything went smoothly. The RV was in great working order, very clean and great looking. We will definitely rent from the again in the future!
This was our first rental from Expedition. Everything went smoothly. They had excellent customer service from the beginning to the return. The RV we rented was in great condition, with the exception of a few minor issues. These issues didn’t cause any trouble, and I know they will have them fixed for the next renter. We are already looking forward to our next RV vacation, and we will be sure to use Expedition!
