Top RV Rental Companies in Newark

Whether you’re in the market for the ideal rental for you or with your partner, friends or even the whole family, there are plenty of self-drive rental options in Newark. You might be after something that offers easy access to the Big Apple without having to pay exorbitant hotel fees, or maybe you need some space to get to grips with your RV before crossing the Hudson and battling with the downtown traffic… But most likely, you’ll be wanting something safe and reliable that can take you around this alluring corner of the USA.

Motorhomes or RV’s in the USA are separated into two distinct categories, Class C and Class A. The former look more like traditional motorhomes and are usually a little easier on the wallet, the latter resemble a small bus or coach and are inclined to be a little more refined inside and out so, if you’re hiring a motorhome in Newark for the sole purpose of leaving it to the closest campsite to New York, the Class A option would be an extravagant and unnecessary gesture.

Check out our easy to follow guide and you’ll be sure to get the perfect motorhome rental in Newark, whatever your criteria.

Road Bear RV is definitely worth checking out if you’re travelling with children because the berth number doesn’t automatically relate to how many adults and children their motorhomes or RV’s can sleep, as we shall see.

Class C

They have four Class C motorhomes to choose from and can sleep as little as 4 -2 adults and 2 children- and as many as 7: their largest Class C campervan, the Class C 28 to 30, for example, has 4 beds, but sleeps 5 adults and 2 children. Just as important is that each of their Class C motorhomes will seat as many as it will sleep, ensuring everyone’s safety on the road.

Newark is New Jersey’s largest city and second largest in the New York metropolitan area; it is also one of the most racially diverse. New Jersey is on the eastern coast of the United States, nestled centrally between New York City and the state of Pennsylvania, so how better to experience more of these places than with a Newark motorhome rental, campervan hire or RV rental?

Liberty Bell, Chocolates and Wines

Once you have had a taste of the Big Apple and hopefully won some money in the casinos of Atlantic City; go a little farther to enjoy the beach boardwalk of Ocean City. From Ocean City drive your RV rental in Newark to Philadelphia and see the real Liberty Bell first-hand as well as the Betsy Ross House where the first flag of the United States was sewn.

From Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, drive your campervan hire or RV rentals to Harrisburg which is home to the famous chocolate factory and world-class amusement park, Hersheypark. Harrisburg itself has some interesting museums and an informative winery tour.

Explore the Appalachian Trail

After a chocolate overdose which the kids would probably love, travel through the Lancaster countryside to view typical Amish life. You can even rent your own buggy to do a tour the authentic old Dutch way.

From Lancaster, the next stop is the Appalachian RV Campground. This is where you can park your motorhome hire if you plan to hike the granddaddy of all hikes in America, the Appalachian Trail. This is also where Newark RV rentals and recreational vehicles from all around the country come to enjoy the many attractions that are nearby. Here they can swap information on interesting places to visit.

The Great Lakes and Niagara Falls

With your campervan hire in Newark; travel west to Pittsburgh and visit the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural history before turning north for Erie. In Erie, you can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere as you enjoy a beach with water sport activities. Continuing north, cross into New York State and follow the Lake Erie shore up to Buffalo and then Niagara Falls. These falls are among the most impressive in the world; and are a part of the trip that should not be missed.

So as not to return on the same route as you went, head east, by-passing Rochester to Syracuse where you turn south continuing down through New York state back into Pennsylvania. Before returning your Newark motorhome rental; stop off at America on Wheels Museum in Allentown; or perhaps visit the Da Vinci Science Centre, which is also in Allentown. The centre is small but interesting and educational. From Allentown, it’s only an hour and a half drive in your RV rentals or campervan hire to New Jersey.

Top New Jersey Attractions

New Jersey often plays second fiddle to the guys across the Hudson River, but we’re on hand to show you that Newark and the surrounding region is so much more than a place to dump the RV while you go take a bite of the Big Apple.

For a start, New Jersey isn’t all about the hustle and bustle of the city, it’s a place full of natural beauty with some fantastic places to visit, but with so many alluring attractions in New Jersey, it could be hard to know where to begin. Not anymore it isn’t.

Atlantic City

Famed for its 5.5-mile-long boardwalk (the longest in the world) the accompanying beach renowned for its great surf, Atlantic City is just as well known for its Casinos, but it’s also home to the Atlantic City Aquarium and the kids will love the attractions on the steel pier.

Cape May

Widely regarded as one of America’s oldest vacation resorts, and a super place for your self-drive holiday, Cape May’s main attraction is on the shores of the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic. It’s also an excellent resort to enjoy fine food and drink after some indulgent shopping.

Holly Shores and Beachcomber RV Camping Resorts at Cape May have facilities for RV rentals with water and electric power hook ups available.

Liberty State Park

Located in the mouth of the Hudson River, three sides of Liberty State Park are surrounded by water, great if you’re up for a boat ride to see Liberty or Ellis Island or indulge in some fishing or crabbing. For landlubbers, it offers picnic areas and playgrounds for the kids.

Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area

Superb for a scenic drive from Newark and in and around this vast beauty spot, Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area may be a bit of a mouthful, but the sheer spectacle of the many waterfalls, brooks and mountains could leave you speechless; with plenty of options for hiking, canoeing, fishing, cycling and camping. Absolutely stunning.


Pretty much defined by its famous university, recognised as one of the best in the world, which makes Princeton a college town that’s both affluent and culturally minded. Enjoy boutique stores, flea and farmers’ markets, alongside galleries and theatre halls. It’s great for a bite to eat too.

Battlefield State Park

This 681-acre (3 km2) state park is also located in Princeton but deserves its own link. Battlefield State Park is where American and British troops fought each other on January 3, 1777 during the American Revolutionary war. A must-see destination for self-drive holiday history buffs.

Battleship USS New Jersey

More military history, but in the maritime vein, Battleship USS New Jersey is the most decorated battleship in the US Navy’s history, and you can explore all 271 metres of her. The main tour is 90 minutes long, but the accompanying museum and memorial make this a fascinating day out.

Thomas Edison National Historic Park

From the humble lightbulb to the movie camera, the phonograph to the modern tattoo gun, Thomas Edison was America’s greatest inventor. Point your motorhome rental towards Thomas Edison National Historic Park, home to Edison’s home and laboratory, and visit the birthplace of some of the world’s great inventions.

Grounds for Sculpture

This 42-acre sculpture park is a great way to enjoy a serene walk punctuated with thought-provoking, inspiring works of 3D art. Grounds for Sculpture was created by artists for artists, and as such, you’re free to enjoy these works of art at your own pace, in your own time.

Paterson Great Falls

It was here, in 1792, that the famous city of Paterson was established. The weight of the falls was harnessed to power mills and factories, and your motorhome vacation in Newark won’t be quite complete without visiting the birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution. Paterson Great Falls themselves are simply beautiful.
