My friend and I are driving the Iceland Ring Road the first two weeks of August. Should I book accommodations in advance? Or would it be OK to book along the way (or just show up at places).

My friend and I are renting a car and driving the Iceland Ring Road during the first two weeks of August. We'll start in Reykjavik and probably work counterclockwise. We are roughly planning out our itinerary right now and want to know how far out in advance should be book lodging, or whether we would be able to just show up at places in the towns along the road. Does anyone have any experience either way?
We are mainly looking at hostels, but we will consider other types of lodging, especially if it gives flexibility to our schedule. We also don't currently plan on camping, but we can write that into our plans if it seems like a good idea too.
Bonus question: How did you book your accommodations in Iceland?
