The Difference Between The 3 Major Motorhome Classes


If you are thinking about purchasing a new RV for sale this summer, it is important that you understand the different types motorhomes that are available and on the market. Here is a quick breakdown of the differences and meanings behind the three major motorhome classes.

Smallest: Class B Motorhomes

Class B motorhomes tend to be built on the base of vans, and are more like driving around a large passenger van than driving around a huge RV.

These motorhomes generally come with a compact bathroom as well as a compact kitchen. They generally have room for a few different people to sleep. It is a more compact RV experience but still allows you to drive around and experience the joys of RV travel. 

Class B motorhomes generally have the same types of door that a large passenger van would have, and can easily be confused for a big passenger van instead of an RV if one is not looking inside of them. 

Medium-Size: Class C Motorhomes

These are the types of motorhomes that you see on the road that are not as long as a semi-truck, but are not as small as a large van.

These motorhomes are generally a little smaller and easier to drive around than their larger counterparts. They generally have enough sleeping space for a couple of adults or a small family with children.  

These types of motorhome tend to look more like a van or truck from the front and have standard vehicle doors for the driver and a passenger to sit in while also having a separate motorhome style entrance. This area is generally open up to the rest of the motorhome. There also tends to be a door one can access the motorhome through as well.

If you are new to owning a motorhome, class C motorhomes generally are very well priced and allow you to see if you like the RV experience without paying for a fully loaded, large motor home.

Large: Class A Motorhomes

Class A motorhomes are the large motorhomes with the generally flat fronts that you see on the road everywhere in the summer. These types of motorhomes tend to be quite large; they often look like they are as big as a semi.

Class A motorhomes generally do not have typical vehicle doors; instead, the driver and all passengers enter the vehicle through the door on the side for the home.

These types of motorhomes often feel more like you are living in a small home or apartment. They can include full master suites and full bathrooms, and often have multiple slide outs that can greatly extend the space available for your use.

These motorhomes also come with lots of storage located on the bottom of them, allowing you to bring all the supplies that you need with you.

Class A motorhomes do take some times to get used to driving though if you are not used to driving large vehicles and they generally run on the higher end expensive-wise.
