USA Motorhome Routes - From/to San Francisco
Most Popular

This adventurous route offers breathtaking scenery paired with diverse landscapes. This is perhaps the most popular RV route in the U.S.

Starting point is San Francisco, the City by the Bay. From there, you drive down the famous Highway No. 1 to Los Angeles. Then, your journey will take you across State borders to Las Vegas. Continue your route to visit some of the most beautiful national parks: Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Death Valley (not allowed during the summer months), and Yosemite. Once you have spent the desired time visiting these sights, you will make your way back to San Francisco.

Our Recommendation:
After your arrival, spend about 3-4 nights in San Francisco before picking up your motorhome. Staying in a centrally located hotel will give you the opportunity to have a couple of days to explore the city by foot or by Cable Car.

Always enter the desired minimum mileage. The display will then only show you the offers that have the desired mileage included. Booking a motorhome without any mileage is not recommended. In this case, the rental company will charge you for the miles driven when you return the vehicle. This can lead to very high additional costs.
