Discover Appleton, WI

Appleton is a city in and the county seat of Outagamie County. The first settlement in the area where Appleton now resides was the White Heron Inn, built in 1835 by Hippolyte Grignon. His intention was to raise his family running the inn and a trading post where he could barter with local Indians for pelts and furs. The area around his inn was settled in 1847 and incorporated as the village of Appleton in 1853. The city is home to Lawrence University (originally the Lawrence Institute) that was founded in 1847 and named after its financial backer, Amos A. Lawrence. The city was named after Lawrence's father-in-law, Samuel Appleton, who donated money to fund the construction of Appleton's first library (even though he never visited Wisconsin). Today, Appleton is a popular destination for hosting regional events such as Memorial Day and Christmas celebrations, and the Mile of Music Festival.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

RV rental vs buying?
