If you don't have an RV you're still in luck as there are many RV rental companies in the bay area.  You can rent everything from a Volkswagen camper to a luxury Class A bus.  Costs will range from the $50 to $100 per day for a van up to thousands of dollars a day for the top luxury buses. 

The most common RV rental is called a Class C...Class C because it has a bed over the cab. That space can also be used for storage. Cost of Class C's will range generally from $125 to $200 a day...and they sleep up to five people. 

Leading Class C rental companies include Cruise America, El Monte, Motoris/Camping World , Apollo and RoadBear.   Roadbear adds some special amenities such as a built in TV and DVD player....

All Star Coaches rents out Luxury buses.

You can even rent a travel trailer or fifth wheel at  Orchard City RV in the San Jose area.

Companies that rent out privately owned RV and Travel Trailers including Arnone's, Village RV and Family RV in San Jose or Share My Coach Sonoma in the north bay.
You can usually get better prices if you check online at
sfbayareaprivatervs.com and 1rvrentals.com.

You can also rent Class B RVs in the bay area.  These are fully self contained RV's that generally fit in a regular parking spot...19 to 23 feet....rvsanfrancisco.com rents out Sprinter Roadtreks and Apollo has the Class B Euro Traveler.

Finally, there is the camper van. These smallest vehicles have beds, tables, and limited kitchens with water and propane cooking stoves. If you rent a camper van you'll have no bathroom or shower and most have no heater or air conditioner when you're stopped.  But, it's the least expensive rental as well as the best gas mileage on the road.  Camper vans can be rented for as little as $50 a day or even less.  Escape, Lost Campers, and Juicy are available in the bay area and California Campers in Redwood City also rents Volkswagon van campers.  Escape Campervans is located near Fisherman's wharf.  Lost Campers is 10 minutes from the airport on Third Street.   Lost Camper vans have no signage on them, allowing you to blend in wherever you go...and they advertise heating and air conditioning.. California VW campers is in Redwood City and JUCY is located in the east bay in San Leandro

There are also RV Rental portal sites like Vacation RV Rentals, Campertravel USA and My Drive Holiday.  These sites work with many RV Rental companies and promote they can find you the best vehicle at the best price from all of the companies if you book through them.

When deciding which company you are going to rent from there are many things to consider. First, of course is whether you want a Class A, B, C or a camper van or travel trailer...Besides the base price, check and see if  you will have to pay for every item you need, such as bedding, kitchen appliances including coffee makers, microwaves, pots and pans, silverware and plates. If the base price for the rental is good enough, you can also get most of these supplies cheaply at a nearby Wal-mart, Target or Dollar Store. And, you should check to see if they have TVs, DVD players, music systems and other electronics that you may want. 

Also important is the location where you will pick up your RV Rental.  If you are flying in to the San Francisco airport, you can catch BART outside the door...the Oakland airport is a short shuttle bus away from BART with new automated rail line being built.  Many of the RV Rental spots in the Bay area are just a short bus or taxi ride away from BART. This will save you from a huge car fee...as much as a hundred dollars or more to get to and from the airport and the RV Rental place. Check the distances to BART on 511.org.

One final tip..if you are keen on spending as little as possible check the various RV Rental web pages for special deals on one way rentals. If it corresponds with your plans these rates are generally very low.
