One of the most popular activities outdoor enthusiasts love is traveling the country with their RV. The exciting thing about this adventure is the different types of RVs that people can choose to navigate their adventures. But, maybe you are new to the RV world and are not 100% sure what kind of RV will suit you the best. This blog will be exploring the different types of RVs available to explore the world and what benefits you can expect from each one.
Class A Diesel Motorhome
The monster of all motorhomes! This motorhome is equipped with a massive diesel engine that sits in the back of the coach that provides more torque power than any of its gas-powered counterparts. As a result of the engine being located in the back of the RV, passengers can expect a pretty quiet and smooth overall ride. If you are looking for a luxurious RV, look no further than the class A diesel motorhome. This is the ideal RV for long trips as it is loaded with comfort to help pass the time during travel. If you are looking to be a full-time RVer, this is the route to go. It is the most costly RV out of the 9, but worth it if you plan on settling in for a long while.
Class A Gas Motorhome
Similar to the diesel engine in terms of luxury, the class A gas motorhome is an extremely popular option for full-time RVers. The motorhome typically comes equipped with a refrigerator, sink, microwave, master bathroom, electronics, and comfortable furniture. It truly is a home away from home. Many class A gas motorhomes have full-length slide outs for additional space along with multiple storage compartments for all the personal belongings needed for long trips. This motorhome is built to resemble a bus with its extended length and large windows.
Class B Motorhomes
Typically called B-vans or camper vans, the Class B motorhome is perfect for the more adventurous RVers. You have the option of choosing between gas or diesel and are much easier to drive than the Class A and C motorhomes. This gives you the flexibility to travel into the city and deep into the country without any awkward driving moments. Some of these motorhomes even have off-road equipment options. Despite its smaller size, all the amenities found in a Class A and C motorhome can be found in this one. Everything just comes a little bit smaller, but the adventures remain large!
Class C Motorhomes
Even though it may not look like it, Class C motorhomes are on the smaller side. You will have the option of purchasing a gas or diesel motorhome and it is usually built on a truck chassis. These types of RVs are easy to recognize because of the “cab-over” feature that extends over the windshield. This area is either used for storage or as another sleeping compartment. These RVs typically come with kitchens, bathrooms, and slideouts. This motorhome provides the flexibility to go to many places that larger RVs can’t fit. This is a great option for families who like to get up and travel at any time.
Fifth Wheel Campers
When it comes to towable RVs, the fifth wheel camper is the largest of them all. These RVs are pulled by a truck with a fifth wheel hitch that is located on the back of the truck. A raised section where the camper hooks to the truck is added, which is usually an added bedroom or living room in the RV. Some of the largest fifth wheel campers have up to six slideouts. This is perfect for large families who enjoy camping with other large groups. The benefit of a towable RV is that you can park your RV and use your vehicle to drive around town.
Toy haulers are unique RVs that are designed to carry a lot of gear and outdoor vehicles. These RVs will haul items such as motorcycles, dirt bikes, snowmobiles, kayaks, golf carts, four-wheelers and so much more. Toy haulers have super duty doors that double as ramps in the rear of the RV. Toy haulers are available in both towable and motorized forms. The most common toy haulers will come as a fifth wheel. This RV is perfect for people who are looking to enjoy the camping experience while having the ability to play hard outside throughout the day.
When traveling through a campground, it is common to see travel trailers more than any other type of RV. This RV can be towed by a bumper or frame hitch that is extended out in the front of the trailer. The length and weight of travel trailers vary greatly, giving people many options when deciding what type of travel trailer works best for you. These trailers are easy to detach and set up in any campground. Travel trailers have all the amenities needed to enjoy an extended stay out in the world.
One of the most distinctive-looking trailers, the teardrop camper is perfect for weekend travelers who don’t need all the fancy amenities that come with other RVs. The teardrop camper is essentially a bedroom on wheels. There are larger teardrop campers that can include a kitchen, wet bath, and bedroom. Due to its size, teardrop campers take advantage of swivel toilets, folding sinks, and convertible beds. Its unique design provides campers with the opportunity to get creative with decorating the trailer. This is a great option for people who like to travel to special events across the country for short periods.
Nothing is more classic than the pop-up camper! The pop-ups on each end provide additional sleeping space for larger families. This is ideal for families who want to enjoy the perks of camping without having to sleep in a tent at night. This is the most affordable camper on the list, which is another reason why it is so popular and has lasted for so long. They are so lightweight that they can even be towed by a regular vehicle instead of a truck. Many different designs and options are available to choose from.
As you can see, there are many options when deciding to jump into the RV world. Each RV is unique and offers something special that pertains to what you intend to use the RV for. There are RVs for extended trips as well as RVs for weekend getaways. Once you have established what the main purpose of the RV will be, you will be able to narrow down which one of these suits your needs the best.
