stuttgart, the capital of the state of baden-wurttemberg, is considered to be particularly livable. A city with a lot of greenery, which like munich stands for southern german prosperity, but here supplemented by the proverbial industriousness (and stinginess) of the swabians. For the production location of mercedes and porsche, it is important to better dovetail both: the protection of the environment and jobs.
Of course, you don’t directly lose out on the climate, but there is hardly a hotter place in germany in the summer than the talkessel. And also the air quality is not the best. It’s time to escape the city and only return to the cannstatter wasen, if that’s what it’s about. We have tested the best camper rental companies for the stuttgart area.

These are the advantages
Professional landlords vs. Private camper rentals in stuttgart
There are many different ways to rent a camper in stuttgart. Smaller car dealerships and rental companies often have a handful of rental vehicles, but rarely in the camper class. But there are also very good rental companies that really specialize in campers. activecamper is a very good example.
on platforms like paulcamper you can find many exceptional campers. / (c) paulcamper
In addition, there is the possibility to rent a camper privately via a platform. for this type of camper rental it is best to read our paulcamper test or the articles about yescapa through. In a nutshell: a charming option and often cheaper, but with some residual risk.
A third variant are booking portals like CU-camper (here in test, with voucher!), tui camper or camperdays. But in our opinion these agencies have no real added value for bookings in germany and only lead to an overwhelming confusion in the camper rental market.
The same applies to the portals that appear like private rental portals, but only provide professional landlords (campanda, erento, faircamper).

Tips about the vehicle
What actually makes a camper?
A campervan is usually an extension of a van or a box van. classic basic vehicles are VW caddies, the mercedes vito or the VW T6, also the renault master. The popular box vans (kawa) are nominally more of a camper van, but they transport the camper feeling so well that they are often also meant.
Camper have the advantage that they drive like cars. This is very advantageous in narrow cities, but also on the highway. There even double: you get ahead faster and you pay less tolls.
Many campers have a pop-up roof. This is the best way to combine the advantages of car and motorhome.

The campervan is the ideal vehicle to stay mobile. To eat kilometers, for narrow streets, to camp wildly sometimes. However, camper vans are also a rolling compromise: the kitchen is also the bedroom.
It is clear that the equipment and storage space must be somewhat slimmed down there. Often campers only have a cartridge stove (like the aktivcamper). But the provisional is also the charming thing about camping. And the more life is moved outdoors, the more clearly the vacation feeling is established.
In fact, campers never have a bathroom with a shower and toilet, unless you take the van with you. There is a wide range:

The main differences besides the space are the vehicle height and the wet cell. But not having them is also an advantage, because in the camper can break down much less than in the kawa.
