While in the military and assigned to Europe in the 70s, I and the family camped using tents. It would be fun to return and do it on wheels.
Camping, RVing and tourism is a major industry in Europe,
Have you checked out RVing at RV seminars? There are forums and lots of websites that offer this opportunity.

Need to be more specific about how many weeks you are planning on. If your trip is months rather than weeks and you have a smaller RV in the US, it can be cost effective to ship it to Europe and back

Generally RVs are half the size of the US ones simply because apart from the main roads, all the roads into villages and towns are narrow and winding and a normal class A would be a big disadvantage. Also many roads within town limits are limited to 3 1/2 tons maximum.
France is probably the most RV-friendly country because it has thousands of aires - overnight parking places - where you are usually parked close to the centre of town at zero or no cost with water and dump also free or low cost.

We have a class A far to big to ship. I am familiar with the Euro style class b and c's . We would like to know if anyone has experience and recommendations on rentals. Also POI's that we should see. Any input is greatly appreciated we will stay 2 or 3 months.

Have travelled quite a lot in Europe. I'd say the smaller, the better. You never see 5th wheel or buses. You do see a lot of small trailers pulled by SUV's. The lovely part of Europe lies in the smaller towns and villages. They don't have the big parking lots that we enjoy in North America. There used to be businesses who would sell you RV's in Europe and then buy it back when you are done. Friends of mine did this in the 90's but I don't know if this is still a practice.
