Motorhome Classes Explained

For newcomers, a good starting point for learning the lingo is to become familiar with some of the names used for different models and builds of RVs.

Different classes of motorhomes

For those familiar with the world of motorhomes you’ll know there is a whole vocabulary set aside for ‘RV talk’. For newcomers, a good starting point for learning the lingo is to become familiar with some of the names used for different models and builds of RVs.

Motorhome model names

Class A

These vehicles are immediately and visually differentiated by their appearance at the front and their sheer size (some are up to 40 feet in length). Their engines are at the rear and they are synonymous with luxury. Often owners invest in ‘slideouts’ to maximum the already generous space. Popular with travellers who like to move around frequently and at the higher end of budgets, these vehicles can sleep up to 8 people and have all the modern appliances you will need.

Class B

Class B Motorhomes are the smallest of all the motorhome classes available. They are built on the frame of a van or a truck and can go up to 25 feet in length. They are sometimes known as van conversions and although they don’t have as many extras as the others, they appeal to the motorhomer who enjoys freedom, fuel economy and agile handling they get with a smaller sized vehicle. They have cooking facilities on board and sleep up to 4 -5 people

Class C

Class C Motorhomes, like Class Bs are also built on the chassis of a van. They are smaller than Class As yet larger than Class Bs and usually go up to 30 feet in length. Class Cs have more space for sleeping than Class Bs, and have more facilities inside. They sleep around 6-8 people and are popular with families. The driving area looks similar to a van driving area and has an over cab for sleeping. Slideouts are also available for this motorhome build
