Travel Vans Class B
If you’re new to the world of recreational vehicles, you are probably lost when you hear motorhome enthusiasts discussing the merits of Class A, Class B, and Class C motorhomes. Whether you are interested in finding the right motorhome for your entry point into the RV lifestyle or you’re just interested in learning more about the different types of available motorhomes, here you’ll learn about three different types of RVs and the advantages and disadvantages of each type.
And if you’re looking to buy your first recreational vehicle – or upgrade to a higher-end motor coach – this guide may be a helpful starting point for you.
What is a Class B Motorhome?
Well, first off, you’re probably wondering why we’re starting with the Class B – it’s because they are the smallest of the three classes of motorhome. A common misconception is that Class A motorhomes are the largest and most luxurious, Class B motorhomes are the middle-of-the-road option, and Class C motorhomes are the smallest. But the Class B motorhome is actually the most limited in both size and its offering of amenities.
A Class B motorhome is built using a cargo or camper van as the base. They are often called “conversion vans” or “camper vans.” However, it has a raised roof and is much larger than a typical van; most are built with a high enough roof to allow its occupants to stand up inside.
Disadvantages of Buying a Class B Motorhome
While there is a range of available options, most have relatively limited amenities. They typically have a very small kitchen, living room, and bathroom. The sound system, television, and other entertainment options are extremely limited. Everything is very small inside: occupancy is usually limited to between 2-4 people, and they generally feel cramped inside. Their bathrooms generally have the shower and toilet in the same space, which is called a wet bath.
Advantages of Buying a Class B Motorhome
Many manufacturers of Class B motorhomes don’t manufacture other types of motorized RVs, meaning they have the advantage of specialization. They get much better gas mileage than other types of motorhomes, and they can even be used as a full-time family vehicle because they are small enough to park in most normal parking spaces or even garages.
What is a Class C Motorhome?
Class C motorhomes usually use a van or truck chassis built specifically for motorhome use, with an attached cab. They provide many of the luxury amenities of the more extravagant Class A motorhomes, but are less expensive. They provide a midpoint between the very stripped-down Class B motorhome family and Class A luxury motor coaches.
The Class C motorhome is known by many people as a “cab-over” motorhome. Most have an overhang, an area that hangs over the cabin, with a bed. They also sometimes have an additional bedroom at the rear.
