Note: Remember that some campgrounds also have a no pets policy. It is best to look for RV parks that will welcome you as well as your furry friend. MyDriveHoliday RV Park Listing indicates whether a Campground allows or restricts Pets on the bottom just before the "Reviews" section.

And now, the vehicles. All motorhomes are self-contained, from the smaller 3 Berths to the larger 7 to 8 Berth RVs.

The 2-3 Berth Motorhomes

These four vehicles are only between 19 to 23 feet long, and are great options if you just want a smaller motorhome to take to a national park that has an RV length restriction. They're also more affordable than their larger cousins!
