Washington is the second most populous state on the west coast after CA. It’s a great idea to book an RV rental in Washington because the nature is so unique. Washington state was conceded by the British in 1846 and was named after the first president of the United States, George Washington. Renting an RV in Washington is easy with Campanda but here is why you should rent a motorhome in this state in particular.
Washington, home to the Puget Sound Region
But why is this state special? Why opt in for an RV rental in Washington? Well for starters, It has the Canadian border on the north and the giant redwood forests down in Oregon. The state’s westside houses the Puget region (a region that has been shaped from glaciers and icy formations characterized by waterways and water basins). Eastward however the state is less green covered by arid dry deserts and mountainous terrain, the highest peaks being Mt. Saint Helens and Mt. Rainier (an active volcano). So you see that diversity plays a big role when you opt in for an RV rental in Washington. It is also where 1000 dams were built to keep its population safe from floods.
Washington state is also the US’s largest supplier of lumber and is a large hub for commercial fishing particularly salmon, playing a large role in the state’s economy. Apart from white pine, spruce, and cedar trees, Washington is the largest producer of apples in the country and the second largest producer of wine. But you don’t have to pack all these apples and wine bottles in your RV rental because they are available in all supermarkets and sometimes RV parks nationwide.
Washington is also a very diverse place in terms demographics. The ancestors of the population are mostly from Ireland, Germany and Norway. Then during the gold rush, the state welcomed many Chinese immigrants from Guangzhou. But in more recent years however, the state played host to Somali, Japanese and Cambodian communities bringing visitors some of the most diversified cuisines and modern art north of the Mississippi. You can even eat inside your RV rental in Washington is you like.
If you’re into sports, then you might want to get an RV rental Seattle, but if you want to go to Canada or Alaska then perhaps an RV rental Spokane is more your speed. Either way you can go catch a Seahawks game or a Mariners game if you’re more partial to baseball. Both cities boast vivid Japanese cultures so make sure to stop for quick authentic Ramen, much tastier than the noodles you microwave in your RV rental in Washington.
Parking your RV in the State of Washington
Washington is a magnificent state in terms of natural beauty, so it’s no wonder that the RV parks stand out as well, here is our recommendations based on past Campanda motorhome renters.
- Trailer Inns RV park of Bellevue has sometimes been described as fairly expensive for people spending a short stay there, the rates get better when you extend your stay however. The park’s facilities are among the best in the state and it’s the closest park to the city of Seattle.
- Riverbend RV park is the park we recommend to nature lovers. It has a very balanced stat sheet in terms of price, view, facilities and staff friendliness.
- Kenanna RV park is the most secluded, you’ll truly feel that you’re parked in the great outdoors, yet with hookups. Some people enjoy it and some people don’t. Just find out what type of RV rental you have in Washington before you get there.

Types of RV rentals in Washington
Campervans are not all born equal. They vary by size and function. Trailers are the simplest RVs out there. They are not motorized so there are never any limitations in terms of mileage. Just make sure you have a powerful vehicle that will tow them if you with that option as your motorhome rental. Next are C Class RVs they drive pretty much like large pick up trucks and consume a moderate amount of fuel. Unlike the next category they don’t need any type of special driver’s license to operate. A & B Class RVs offer you the most comfort and different compartments within the vehicle. They also consume a lot of gas but it’s worth it. Finally, vans don’t consume that much gas but they also offer people that rent an RV in Washington the least living space.
