A wide variety of motorhomes are available in the USA, from smaller station wagons up to large motorhomes. Some of the common types include:
Class A motorhomes are often built on a commercial truck or bus chassis and run on either diesel or gas, depending on the type of engine.
Usually, Class A vehicles are fully loaded with all amenities and have a large living space.
Some Class B vehicles include a toilet or freshwater tank, but not all do. Class B vehicles usually have basic cooking equipment, folding beds and limited storage space.
Class B vehicles are a good option for short-term getaways.
Class C vehicles are a smaller version of the Class A motorhome. They are built on a truck or van cutaway chassis and usually have a gas-powered engine.
Class C motorhomes generally have sleeping quarters above the cab and more sleeping space in the back. Some Class Cs also have a slide-out option that increases the living space when the motorhome is parked.
Class C vehicles come equipped with a good number of facilities, including a self-contained toilet, refrigerator, heating or AC, and cooking facilities.
Class C vehicles are very versatile and are great for both short- and long-term getaways.
