Types of Motorhome RV

Motorhomes come in three levels: Class A is big and heavy, Class B is more like a camper van, and Class C is a motorhome with a truck front. Here’s a quick guide to help you better understand:

1. Class A RV


These are the large, bus-shaped rigs that might come to mind when you think about a celebrity’s tour vehicle. They can be anywhere from 20 feet to 45 feet in length, or even longer, and some of them sleep up to eight or ten passengers. These motorhomes can be diesel or gas, but either way, they pack a hefty punch when it comes to the fuel bill. Since they’re so large and heavy, they aren’t exactly the most fuel efficient… some get as little as six miles to the gallon!

Class A basic figures:

● Length: 25 to 45 feet
● Sleeping Capacity: 6 to 8 people
● Retail Price: $90,000 to $400,000+

2. Class B RV


Also known as sleeper vans or camper-vans, Class B RVs are one of the smallest RV classes, which means they’re more agile than either Class A or Class C rigs… but they don’t have the same kind of spacious interior. Class B campers are adventure vehicles. They can camp in remote areas that Class As Cs simply just cannot go. You’ll never have to worry about whether or not you’ll be able to back up or navigate down a steep or unpaved road — which is where all the coolest campsites are!

Class B motorhomes basic figures:

● Length: 20 to 26 feet
● Sleeping Capacity: 1 to 4 people
● Retail Price: $85,000 to $150,000

3. Class C RV


Class Cs have a notable attribute that sets it apart from Class A motorhomes. They have a “cab-over” profile that typically makes room for a bed or additional storage. A modified version of this standard motorhome is the Super C, which is essentially a Class C on steroids–bulkier and more powerful. Class Cs can also double as a toy hauler.

These RVs are usually built on a truck chassis and can be constructed with a gas or diesel engine. Class Cs are not as large as some Class A motorhomes, so they can go to more places. They are a self-contained unit with designated rooms for sleeping, eating/cooking, lounging, and taking a shower. Gas and diesel options are available.

Class C motorhomes basic figures:

● Length: 22 to 35 feet
● Sleeping Capacity: 4 to 8 people
● Retail Price: $70,000 to $200,000
