Class C

So, let's go ahead and start off with a modest RV in both budget in size, the class c RV. These are usually twenty-five to thirty-eight feet long. This means that they can fit into a wide variety of camping spots in RV parks. This length can also accommodate a good-sized family, usually four to six, for your stay. This means that you and your family can enjoy a comfortable stay for your camping adventure.

These RV’s are also usually cheaper than a class a or a class b or camper van. We have found that new ones will run from fifty thousand to eighty thousand. This may seem expensive but this is for newer models. If you were to look at some used models the price tends to drop dramatically. This could be good for your wallet, but be sure to do your research on the used Class C you want.

So, if you looking for a comfortable middle of the road class that will let you dip your toe into family RVing then this would be a good type for you.

Class B 

Next, we have a class for adventures. If you love the idea of roaming the road looking for the next great view and living life on the go then this next class might be good for you. Class B’s are a large van that has been designed for living and staying in. These RV’s are beautiful on the inside, often designed economically so that it can fit many parts of an RV.

These RV’s often designed for two to four people. That having been said these kinds of RV’s are usually best for either a single person or a couple. That having been said there is an advantage to that, if it is just you or you are in a couple then you could travel to just about anywhere you want with how small these RV’s are. There is an entire trend called van life of people who give up their roots and travel the country in fabulous vans just like these.

In terms of price these are going to be more than the class c’s, usually eighty to a hundred thousand. This seems to be the common price range but there is a reason for this, these vans are made by very prominent van manufacturers and are highly specialized for being RVs. This why there is a price increase. Like all other types of RVs, you can look for used models that closer fit your budget, but you may want to hold off on that until your read through the end this article. There is another option that you should know about.

These class B’s are for people who want to live a life style more than going out for a weekend. If that sounds like your thing then this class of RV is for you.

Class A

The last on our list is the most luxurious, the magnificent and often massive Class A. Class A’s are often what comes to mind for many people when they now think of the term RV. These mammoths are like houses on wheels, furnished with some of the finest appliances that can be fitted to an RV. Their size and power offer a level of prestige that no other type of Motor Vehicle or RV can see to command. They come in a variety of styles and types for all different needs. There are a few things that you should know about these before you buy, so let's go ahead and get started.

First off let's clarify that Class A’s actually come in two different varieties, gas and diesel. These two types affect two different things in your RV. The first is the amount of money that you are going to pay at the gas pump, as well as how often you are going to have to stop at the gas station. Gas is cheaper but you will have to fill up more often, and diesel is more expensive but your tank will last longer. The second is that Diesel engines require less maintenance.

The size of these massive vehicles can vary but they more often than not clock in over thirty-five feet to sometimes even being forty-five feet. The advantage of this works in two different ways. You will either have enough space to sleep six to eight people depending of the vehicle of your choice. The second is that if you are a couple than you have plenty of room to stretch out.

Lastly, we have price, this we depend a lot on the brand and type of engine that you choose for your RV. The starting price for most of these vehicles is eighty-thousand, though you could keep your eye open for clearance sales. Some of these can easily go up to and past two-hundred and thirty-thousand dollars. Diesel variants start at over one hundred and fifty thousand but can easily go up to nearly a million. This all depends on the type that you choose and what brands you are looking at.

The Class A RV is a class that people who are serious about RVing should look at. They can be expensive but well worth the price if you have a large family or plan on going into the RV life permanently.

Custom RV’s

The final class of RV isn’t an official type, instead it is the creativity and perseverance of people who know what they want from their life on the road. People have turned things such as box trucks and busses into fully functional RV’s for themselves and their families. You could even take and ordinary van and turn it into a camper van. Any of these options and more will serve you well if you find that the standard classes of RV are not to your liking. Just keep in mind that these projects will be far more work but not necessarily more money than a standard RV.
