CLASS A MOTORHOME


Class A .jpgWhen thinking about these motorhomes you might instantly think of celebrity tour buses and the sheer size of these motorhomes. They are indeed some of the most luxurious and well sought after RVs on the market.

Class A Motorhomes can usually sleep between 8-10 people, include a fully functional kitchen, full sized bathroom and usually have multiple slide-outs to increase their interior space when parked. These rigs can be up to 45 feet long, or even longer, and often include a ton of extra features like outdoor entertainment setups and outdoor kitchen.

These motorhomes make the perfect camper for big families or smaller parties who insist on travelling in style and luxury. However, buying new can be incredibly expensive you need to factor the cost of fuel because these RVs like to drink! Renting may be a great way to experience travelling in luxury with these or even considering buying used options. If you are looking for simplicity then a Class A might be overkill.

 

CLASS B MOTORHOME

If interior space isn’t your main priority, than Class B motorhomes (also known as, sleeper vans) might be a great choice for you! If you plan on being outdoors most of the time, having only a few square feet of living room won’t be a big deal to you.

Even though these are the smallest motorhomes, they are surprisingly comfortable and livable. Usually the layouts are very well done and maximize the space in creative ways. Most will include functioning kitchenette and toilet facilities, as well as comfortable sleeping arrangements. Finally if you weren’t already sold their small size means getting better fuel mileage + they fit most places like a regular van so you never have to be worried about bridges or narrow roads.

 

CLASS C MOTORHOME

Class C motorhomes share many of the same amenities as the Class A, but they’re just smaller, making it easier to drive and handle, since they are built into a regular pickup truck chassis. They tend to be in middle of fuel mileage too. Class C fuel usage tend to be better than Class A motorhomes.

You can find Class C motorhomes to be much more affordable, making them a family favorite.



TRAVEL TRAILERS

The downside of a motorhome is always having to use it to drive around and explore your destination. With a travel trailer, you automatically have the towing vehicle as your transportation as well to drive freely once you've unhooked the trailer. Depending on the size of trailer you are pulling, you will usually require a large and powerful vehicle. 

Travel trailers are also have a broad spectrum, with many choices to choose from, including pop-up trailers, toy haulers, mid-sized travel trailers, pods or even your extremely large fifth wheels. So if you do decide you prefer the trailer over the motorhome, check out the different types of travel trailers.
