Most individuals see a motorhome on the road and think nothing more than oh how nice, or if they are like me, they start breaking down the type, slides, looking to see if there is a flat roof for late night photography, wondering if it is a diesel pusher or a gas guzzler. Can it be self sustainable, what does it have for basement storage? As you can tell, I REALLY want an RV. Not a trailer or a fifth wheel, but a motorhome/RV. It is a major bucket list item for me. To drive around and find off the beaten path towns to photograph and write about.
But I have learned in speaking with others about my passion for an RV that many have no idea about the differences between them, they describe them to me in various ways, the big flat face ones, or the ones with the thingy that sticks out over the driver. Okay those each have names or classes rather and today in this post we are going to go over them and their differences. In another article we will discuss travel trailers and fifth wheels, but not today.
There are three classes of RVs or Motorhomes
- Class A motorhome.
- Class B motorhome (campervan)
- Class C motorhome.
The Google Explaination
Class C RVs are somewhere between Class A and Class B. They are often built on a truck or van chassis that is specifically designed for a motorhome. They have an attached cab and most have an overhang that extends over the cab. This area is usually used as sleeping quarters but may also be used for storage.
