Understanding Classes of Motorhomes

Posted on 25/08/2017 in Personal Product & Services by

If you are new to shopping for an RV, then you may be confused by the differences between the different classes. Different families will enjoy different RVs the best, so it is important to make an educated decision on the one that will meet your needs the best. Regardless of what class motorhome is right for you, if you are in the Metroplex, then talk to the kind salesforce at Voght RV. They will be glad to answer your questions, and show you the difference in different Tiffin motorhomes.

Class A Motorhomes

Class A motorhomes are the most luxurious with most having slideouts adding additional living space. These motorhomes often have a separate living space equipped with recliners or other comfortable chairs. Class A motorhomes usually have taller ceilings, so there is no need to worry if you are tall when you stand up straight.

Most people choosing Class A motorhomes find that they have an incredible amount of storage space. This makes them great for people who plan on living in their RV to carry a lot of stuff with them. Class A motorhomes often have a separate shower area from the toileting area. This makes getting ready far easier than when the space is combined.

Class A motorhomes are built on heavy-duty frames similar to bus frames. They also usually have the largest tires. While it is usually relatively easy to get used to driving one, some people find driving one intimidating in the beginning. The large windshield, however, makes it very easy to see everything that is happening in front of you. Many Class A motorhomes are able to tow 5,000 or more pounds. Therefore, they can be used to tow a car. Others use them to pull a boat to their favorite fishing spot.

Class C Motorhomes

The major advantage to a Class C motorhome is that they are easier to maneuver. Their smaller size means that they are easier to park than a Class A motorhome. They also feel less intimidating for the novice to drive.

Most sleeping areas in Class C motorhomes are located over the cab. Therefore, users need to be able to climb into the area without any problems. Alternatively, a few have slide outs where beds can be located.

The bathroom setup in Class B motorhomes varies by the model. Some have a separate area for showering from toileting while others have one combined area. These motorhomes are able to tow a small car making them a favorite of those who are looking to park their RV while exploring an area.

Class B Motorhomes

The smallest units are Class B Motorhomes that are often called camper vans. These units are exceedingly easy to drive and park even in tight spaces. Most people are not intimidated by driving one at all.

Class B motorhomes are the cheapest units to buy. The tradeoff is that they usually have very little storage and living space. Therefore, families may find that they are extremely cramped when trying to live in one.
