Baseball season is rapidly headed toward that final showdown — a time when much of the nation is captivated by nail-biting moments as the American League champs square off against the winners in the National League.

The World Series is one of the United States’ greatest pastimes. Maybe you plan on attending? Or maybe you can’t get tickets but just want to be near the event to soak in the energy? 

If so, why not do it in an RV? It’s affordable and convenient, allows you to vacay your way, and creates epic adventures for you and the family — even if you don’t actually go to the game. And to make it even more enticing we want to help you get out there by offering 10% off your rental. Use code BASEBALL22 at checkout!

Read on to figure out how to find the best World Series campsites, how to boondock at The World Series, the best types of RVs to bring, how to prepare your camper for epic World Series tailgating, and more.

RVing To The World Series

If you have a love for baseball and camping, a World Series RVing trip is an absolute must. Camping at the World Series is about more than the game itself — the two cities that host this monumental event will see weeks-long celebrations happening in the lead-up and follow-up to The World Series. 

For example, past cities have hosted large ‘fan zones’ in the area around their stadiums and downtown. These zones are open to the public and often feature live music, cool exhibits, unique food vendors, and more. 

RV parks in World Series cities will usually transform themselves into baseball fan meccas as folks from far and wide take their rigs into town for the festivities. RV parks in World Series cities will also be much more affordable than inflated hotel rooms. 

The moral of this story is that — even if you don’t have tickets to The World Series — RVing to one of the host cities promises to offer affordable experiences that you and the family will never forget. 

How To Find The Best World Series Campsites

Because we won’t know the World Series cities until things are down to the wire, it’s important to pay close attention as the MLB post-season unfolds. The best way to find the perfect RV spot for The World Series is to act the second that host cities are locked in. The most likely cities at time of writing are Los Angeles, New York, Houston, and Atlanta.

From there, the location of the stadium is important, but not a total deal-maker. For example, if the city’s baseball stadium is not in the downtown corridor, camping near downtown is still a great bet because many epic events will occur downtown in the lead-up to the Series.

If the host city features a downtown stadium, then RV parks nearest to this zone will be an ideal bet because you’ll be close to both stadium activities and special World Series events hosted downtown.

Alternatively, if you like nature camping and don’t mind a drive, any World Series city should feature forested campgrounds within an hour of the festivities. These RV parks will also likely feature increased availability and very affordable prices — a grand slam in our book. 

No matter which campground you choose — many stadiums also allow tailgating. So, if you have tickets to the game and a smaller RV, you could roll it in from wherever you make camp for an unforgettable tailgating party.

Lastly, it’s important to note that the prices for RV parks will surge in the host cities once teams are determined. However, you’ll almost always pay substantially less for an RV site than for a hotel room in World Series cities!

Boondocking At The World Series

When World Series campsites are full, boondocking — aka dry camping — will open up a wide landscape for camping in your RV. As long as your camper is equipped with the right equipment for boondocking, you should have a variety of options for making camp near The World Series.

For example, the Los Angeles area features some free campgrounds within a few hours of the city that would make for an epic camping experience if you’re cool with some drive time to the events. 

Houston is another favorite contender as a Series city  — Brazos Bend State Park or Spring Creek Park Campground are two great boondocking spots near the city. 

If Atlanta hosts the Series, you’d have your pick of several boondocking sites in the area.

There’s also a good chance we could see some Series games happening in the New York City area. If that happens, something like Harvest Hosts would be a great bet to find boondocking at wineries, breweries, farms, and more. 

The bottom line is that if you’re willing to do a bit of driving, are equipped to camp without hookups, and know how to find boondocking campsites, you’ll be able to RV to The World Series. 

How To Have An RV Delivered To The World Series

What Are The Best Types of RV For The World Series?

The best type of RV for The World Series depends on the experience you want to have. Let’s unpack some options:

  • Trailers delivered to you — Fifth-wheel campers are those campers you see on the road where a part of the camper (usually the bedroom area) goes up and over a pickup truck bed. They are excellent candidates to have delivered to you because they are very spacious and offer some epic hangout features — like outdoor kitchens and back porches.

    Fifth-wheels are family-friendly trailers that make excellent use of space — often sleeping up to 10 people. Some of them are ‘toy haulers’, meaning they have an area at the back that can function as a small garage for motorcycles or as a back deck to take tailgating to the max.

    Fifth-wheel campers do need to be towed by larger trucks but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

    We have tons of these trailers that can be affordably delivered wherever you need them — all you have to do is show up. Here are a few examples of fifth-wheel campers near World Series contending cities:
    • This toy hauler near Atlanta features a full-size residential fridge and a massive fold-out deck.


    • If the Series is in Seattle, this fifth wheel could be your chariot. It sleeps 6 comfortably, is only available for delivery, and offers grill/fire pit accessories upon request.



      Deck not included 🙂
  • Family-friendly Class Cs — Class C rigs are larger than Class Bs (campervans) but still nimble enough to get around if you choose a smaller length. Class C rigs also tend to have more amenities than Class B’s and can often sleep up to 6.

    Class Cs can also feature a bunk area that goes over the cab, offering great sleeping space for the kiddos.
  • Flexible, easy-to-drive travel trailers, campervans, and more — If you’d prefer more nimble options to get into tight urban spaces, you’ll want to look for either a small travel trailer or a Class B/small Class C rig.

    Class B rigs cover campervans and other similar drivable vehicles that’ll usually allow you to get into most any spot. The trade-off is that you’ll likely lose on some amenities and only sleep 4 people or less. 

    Here are some examples of each:

Or mountain marauder…

  • The luxe option — Class A motorhomes are large, amenity-packed machines that are generally built on the same platform as a large bus. These rigs feature ample living space that often sleeps 6-8 people, built-in flat-screen TVs, outdoor kitchens, dishwashers, washer/dryers, tile floors, and much more. Many Class A owners also offer delivery in case you’re leery of driving a big rig.

    If you have the budget and are looking to do The World Series in style, Class A rigs are the way to go.

    Here are a few examples of luxe rigs for rent near some potential series cities:

The best type of RV for you to take to The World Series is the one that best fits the experience you want to have. No matter which direction you choose, you’ll save money over a hotel and usually have the option to get your rented rig delivered to you. 

What To Pack For World Series Camping

When it comes to RV camping near The World Series, there are a handful of must-pack items that’ll make for an unforgettable experience. When you rent an RV, be sure to chat with the RV owner as many of these amenities are often provided or offered as add-ons. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of Series enhancing items: 

  • S’more fixins
  • A way to cook outside (e.g. grill, outdoor RV kitchen, etc.)
  • Camping chairs
  • Your favorite team jerseys
  • Lighters
  • Firewood
  • A canopy tent
  • Folding tables
  • Bicycles
  • Recyclable cutlery and plates

The World Series and RV camping are two national pastimes that go together like marshmallows and campfires. Even if you don’t score tickets to the Series itself, RVing to the cities that host this baseball extravaganza promises unforgettable experiences for you and the family. 


So what are you waiting for? Start shopping for RVs to rent and get that game plan ready to roll as soon as we know who’s headed to The World Series.
