How much does it costs to rent a motorhome in Spain?

The cost of Spanish campervan rental depends on a number of factors. On that is often overlooked is the time of the year high season summer months carry a higher tariff than say the winter months. If your dates are not fixed try entering different start and end dates to see if you can find a better price by going at a different time of the year.  

That aside the big factor is the size of the campervan. Small campervans can work out fairly cheap and in most cases much cheaper than local hotels.
