Choosing An RV Trailer

There are so many types of RV trailers, it can be hard to know where to start! But don't worry: you'll quickly find that it's not as daunting as it may seem. To help you find the right RV for your needs, here are some of the most common types on the market.

Class A Motorhome

This is the quintessential RV: the largest, most luxurious, and most iconic of them all. Essentially a mansion on wheels, they can feature practically every amenity you can think of: making them perfectly at home on vacation, or for full-time living. The only downsides are their premium price—some can cost as much as a house—and their size. By packing all the comforts of home into something you can take on the road, you end up with one truly massive vehicle. While it may be manageable for most drivers, you may have trouble accessing certain roads. And once set up at your camp site, it's too impractical to use the RV for transportation. However, many get around this by towing a smaller vehicle behind the RV.

Class B Motorhome

Also known as the "Van Camper", these are a bit less-common than most types. They are built on a van chassis, have a raised roof, and feature all basic amenities—some even feature grey and black water tanks for waste! The main advantages of Class B motorhomes are their versatility and manageable size. Although there are people who live in these for long periods of time, it can be rather crowded. Even in the short term, they tend to only be good for 1 or 2 people, at most.

Class C Motorhomes

Essentially a smaller Class A, these are practically as luxurious as full-size Class A motorhomes. Typically mounted onto a truck or van chassis, many models feature expandable slide-outs, so you will not be lacking for space. They usually feature a ton of sleeping spaces, and are recognizable for the sleeping or storage area that wraps over the top of the driving cabin. They are a great choice for those who can't justify the cost of a Class A.

Travel Trailers

Easily the most successful type of RV in the history of the industry, these provide the most living space per square footage of any RV variant. They come in all sizes, and are designed to towed by most SUVs and trucks. This allows every square foot to be dedicated to living needs. Beyond this, they feature practically all of the same amenities of their self-propelled variants. The only downside being that you cannot be in the RV trailer while it is in motion.
