Motorhome rental recommendations: Calgary to Jasper

Hello. Does anyone have recommendations for good vendors from which I can rent a motorhome for pick up in Calgary and dropoff in Jasper? THANK YOU

G'day mum,

I don't think that you will be able to do that as I have previously seen it mentioned on these forums that there are no agents in Jasper for any of the R/V hire companies. I would stand to be corrected, or advice confirmed, by a local expert though when they get up tomorrow. This is an article listing agencies present in Jasper:

tripadvisor.com.au/Travel-g154918-s304/Jaspe…

Perhaps local DE krp might add information in regard to R/V's to that link as the question has arisen several times.

I'm afraid Frommy is right. In fact, I don't think it is possible to rent a motorhome and drop it in Banff, either.

Frommy and Country_Wife are both right: there are no RV rental depots in Banff or Jasper. These types of businesses usually require quite a lot of land for parking and servicing their units; this is why you'll usually find RV rental depots on the outskirts of bigger cities like Calgary and Vancouver. Development in the national parks is heavily controlled; the amount of land that is permitted to be developed is limited, therefore land is at a premium and very expensive to lease.

Thank you everyone. With so much travelling around, I thought that a motorhome might save us the trouble of packing and unpacking every couple of nights. We'll probably drive and stay in moderately priced places. THANK YOU!
