RVs Explained – What You Need To Know?Posted by: Billy Mann | Posted on: October 11, 2017
If you are unsure of what RV to buy, here is a quick rundown of the many popular types you can choose from:
- Motorhomes – if you are going to buy motorhomes conversion, then what you need to understand is that these are the largest RVs you will find. You can find motorhomes divided into a number of classes based on their size and quantity:
- The Class A motorhomes: these are the RVs that resemble trucks and buses, as they are built on these chassis. They are the largest and most luxurious types of RVs, but at the same time, they are also the most expensive RVs to buy and maintain.
- The Class B motorhomes: these are built on the chassis of vans, and are therefore relatively smaller. They lack significant storage space, but they are the option to go for if the budget is restricted. Nonetheless, they are still quite comfortable – especially if you do not have many members in the family.
- The Class C motorhomes: these are not smaller than the Class B motorhomes; instead, they are a kind of hybrid between the Class A and Class B motorhomes. To explain this better, they are built on the chassis of cabins, and they can be easily picked out due to the visible over-cab area which is a sleeping area. Their prices range between the two classes, as does their level of comfortability and storage. Visit this website to find out more details.
- Trailers – the trailers are the other most popular type of RVs. There are different kinds of custom caravans, but in general, these all share the same characteristic of being a ‘home on wheels’ that needs to be towed by some other vehicle. Their size can vary, with the largest trailers requiring trucks or dedicated towers.
- Popup campers – arguably these are the most economical of all recreational vehicles. The popup campers are basically trailers, but unlike the average trailer, their living and sleeping spaces are compacted when stored away; these ‘pop’ out when they need to be used. They are extremely light-weight, thus even compact cars and SUVs can easily tow them.
- Toy hauliers – these are another type of trailer. What distinguishes them from the other trailers if the fact that their space is half taken up for the living quarters, whilst the remaining space is left for pseudo-garage, where motorbikes, bicycles, rafts, boats, etc. can be stored. They are the go-to trailers for those who go adventurous holidays. However, because of the added weight of the other vehicles, they need to be towed by more powerful vehicles – such as dedicated towers.
