Whistler is a mesmerizing town in the south of British Columbia mostly known for its skiing, mountain biking and rock climbing. It is unique for campers because it includes many types of micro-climates: coniferous mixed forests, marine temperate climate, arctic tundra and rainforests from the pacific northwest. When dealing with untamed natural beauty, there is no reason to not opt in for an RV rental in Whistler.
Funny enough the town is called by that name because of the cries of the hoary marmot.It’s a small town. Only 10,000 people inhabit it year long. It is visited however by over 2 million visitors each year. Most of the seasonal workers tend to be from Australia and Europe. Surely they come to experience what many ski authorities have deemed some of the best skiing on the continent. Whistler is just 80 miles north of Vancouver. So you can get your RV rental from there or opt in for a motorhome rental in Whistler.

Whistler, although it is a Skiing country is still the lowest point of passage between two major glaciers that are impenetrable that is called the Cheakamus-green divide. It naturally became a trade route for the first nation’s inhabitants because of this, the Lil’wat and the Squamish. Later a man by the name of John Millar was given credit for promoting the region and directly influenced investors to build the first lodge in the area.
As we mentioned, people nowadays mostly go for Skiing in the winter. But there is a whole different crowd of people that go RV renting in Whistler in the summer. These people are mostly into sightseeing, camping, hiking, trekking and boondocking.
Make sure to take your RV rental to Whistler's Blackcomb Peak where you’ll enjoy amazing long strolls in the summer and some of the longest slopes in the winter. The view from there is simply amazing. It keeps getting high ratings from very different sources and not just RV rental magazines.
Also check out the volcanic formations in the region. The Garibaldi lake volcanic fields for example offer a great place to go boondocking. Don’t worry the volcanoes are dormant so your RV rental in Whistler won’t catch fire while you slumber. The Mount Cayley volcanic fields are also a major point of interest. They represent the Canadian edge of volcanic hills that took form long ago and stretch all the way from Northern California.

First find the location where you want to go RVing. Then filter the results further to find the type and size motorhome you’re looking for. We also have filters that enable you to only look at RVs with solar power, pet friendly policies, handicap accessible vehicles and many other options. Once you find a couple of RVs that have peeked your interest, send the lessors an inquiry whether it’s for an RV rental in Whistler or other. You can send as many inquiries as you want and they are by no means binding. It’s like you saying to the dealer, “Hey, I want to go to Whistler on these dates and I’m ok with this price, is that a solid offer?” The reason we want you to send multiple inquiries is because in the end you need to book your RV rental in Whistler for a fixed amount of time and that has to work for the lessor/dealer as well. Once you receive an offer back, you can book the motorhome rental by putting a down payment on the vehicle. The rest of the payment is due upon reception.
As we mentioned, there are many types of RV. Take your needs into account. If you plan on boondocking often: smaller is always better so look at converted vans or C Class RVs. If you want comfort and legroom in the RV and you know that you’ll be staying mostly in RV parks then perhaps an A or B Class RV is better. These classifications are mostly a way of classifying sizes. Also don’t forget to check out which RVs your state allows you to drive with a basic license. Want more?
