Which Type of RV Is Right For You?

Class A

Price Range = $25,000 to $275,000+

The Class A Motorhome is the largest and most luxurious of the motorized RVs. These are well equipped for short trips or long vacations, and well suited for full timing. The entire unit is self-contained, with the living area accessible from the driver's seat. A major appeal to the Class A is it's open feel and large living space. For long-term camping, it is recommended these be used between 30 - 90 degrees as the large windshield makes heating or excessive cooling more difficult. Depending on floor plan, a Class A can generally sleep up to 8 people. Things to be aware of: Class A Motorhomes are available in both gas and diesel. Pricing will vary greatly based upon chassis and manufacturer finishes/amenities. The driver will need to be experienced as it is not always easy to turn, back-up and navigate in a large Motorhome.

Class C

Price Range = $20,000 to $150,000+

The Class C Motorhome provides many of the amenities and conveniences of the Class A but in a scaled down and less expensive unit. A Class C can sleep up to 8 people and, just like the Class A, passengers are free to eat, watch television, play games and use the bathroom while on the road. For those with larger families and slightly tighter budgets, a Class C Motorhome may be ideal for you.

Travel Trailer 

Price Range = $8,000 to $50,000

A Travel Trailer is a non motorized RV that is designed to be towed. This unit offers all of the amenities of home and can sleep up to 10 people which make it perfect for big families. By far the most versatile of all types of RVs, a Travel Trailer's length can vary from 13 feet to 36 feet and everything in between. Perfectly adaptable for full time, the Travel Trailer will provide you with a spacious vacation or weekend getaway whenever you please.

Fifth Wheel

Price Range = $30,000 to $110,000

A Fifth Wheel is similar to a Travel Trailer, however is designed to be towed by a flat bed or open bed truck.  The overhanging front section provides extra living space and the unique option of a bi-level living area.  Fifth Wheels are often preferred by full timers for the spacious living space comparable to a Motorhome, but with the affordability of a towable, and easier and more stable towing than a Travel Trailer.  Fifth Wheels range in size from 25' to 45' and come in an abundance of floor plans and options.  Fifth Wheels typically can sleep 4-8 people comfortably.

Folding Camper

Price Range = $3,000 to $12,000

Also known as a Pop-Up Camper, a Folding Camper is a great lightweight unit that offers the experiences of a tent with some of the comforts of home. These units are smaller and less expensive than Travel Trailers while still not making you sacrifice all of the commodities. Larger models can sleep up to 10 people and many of the units can be towed with a regular passenger car. It's easy towing makes it a highly convenient choice. A Folding Camper also uses less to tow because of it's lightweight. Since it is so much smaller than most units it is much easier to store when not in use.
