Hi Re Tovet,

Bonjour! Sounds like a great trip! I'm not sure if these companies provide campers) but I recommend you contact them directly. I've had very good luck doing short-term leases with these companies:

Peugeot via AutoEurope – easily my top choice. They have what I’m looking for in a car lease company: a good track record and excellent customer service.
Renault via EuroDrive – apparently a very good option. I’ve read many positive reviews about this company and people apparently have had very good experiences. Unfortunately, when I called to get advice and information, the customer service rep was less than helpful.
Honorable mention: Europe by Car –Rick Steves recommends this company, so it must be pretty good. Europe by Car offers leases from both Renault and Citroen.

Here's how these short term leases work:

Best regards,
