Motorized RVs

Have wheels, will travel

All motorized RVs are operated and driven from within the vehicle, but that's about all they have in common. Some are as small as a mini-van and others can be long as an 18-wheeler. They can be a budget-friendly $5,000 (used), or ring up an $800,000 price tag without blinking.

Class ‘A' Motor Homes

Often rectangular shaped, this motor home allows the driver and passenger seats to swivel around and act as living room furniture - once you're parked. This is the best choice if you have a large family or plan to “live” for long periods in your motor home.

  • Price Range: $50,000 to $800,000.
  • Handling: Class A's handle a lot like a car. Provided you aren't towing anything behind, they can even back up like a car.
  • Towing: Larger motor homes can tow a car or small boat.
  • Mileage: This class typically gets the worst mileage. You can cut down on the cost of running this gas guzzler if you use a towed car (a.k.a. “toad”) once you set up camp .
  • Features:
    • A kitchen, eating area, living room, bedroom and self-contained bath.
    • Access requires steps, but once inside it's flat and easy to get around in if you have a disability.
    • Sleeps up to eight.
  • Disadvantages:
    • If you buy a larger Class A with a toad, you'll have two vehicles to maintain.
    • Not everyone is thrilled to have a steering wheel staring at them during dinner.
    • A luxury Class A and toad can be more expensive than a fifth wheel and truck.

Class ‘B' Motor Homes

This motor home is a raised roof on a van chassis. Think of the classic VW pop-top van. While these contain the same amenities as Class A, they do so on a smaller scale - a much, much smaller scale. Because these are expensive, most people opt for Class A or C instead, but if you're a couple of free spirits who want to go with the flow and not the KOA availability , this could be the vehicle to make your road trip a reality.

  • Price Range: $35,000 to $75,000.
  • Handling: Handles just like a car, but with a wider turning radius. They're easier to maneuver than a Class A.
  • Towing: Tows anything a full-sized van can haul.
  • Mileage: Good mileage for an RV.
  • Features:
    • Kitchen, eating area, living room, bedroom and bath
    • Sleeps two to four.
  • Disadvantages:
    • New ones are expensive compared to other small motorized RVs.
    • Have less sleeping space than other small RVs.

Class ‘C' Motor Homes
