My husband and I recently got back from two back-to-back trips in two very different locations. One trip was to the European country of Iceland and another was to the tropical island of Kauai in Hawaii.

While the trips could not have been more different from each other, we decided to travel around each place in a campervan. We currently camp in a teardrop trailer and a 13-foot fiberglass trailer, but we love the van life and wanted to experience it in other locations. With a nod to George RR Martin, we named the trips “The Van of Ice and Fire”.
We rented a panel van from Camper Rental Iceland and a mini van conversion from Lemon Drop Campers. While we love towable trailers, what we realized is that renting a campervan while visiting a foreign or domestic country is the best way to travel.
Why is this? We tend to travel internationally several different ways. We either pick a small part of a country or city, get an Airbnb, and use public transportation. Sometimes we rent a car and move to one or two other locations. While this is a great and efficient way to travel, you are tied down to a specific part of the city or country and need to report back to your house or apartment each night.
If you are comfortable with camping and driving in a foreign country or big city, renting a campervan will give you the freedom that travel epitomizes. So here are the top four reasons why renting a campervan while traveling is the best.
