Posted by justin copper on January 4th, 2016

If you are new to the world of motorhomes, you may not know what to say when you hear motorhome enthusiasts discussing the pros and cons of Class A, Class B, and Class C motorhomes. If this is the case, you are at the right place. This article has been written to provide an overview of three different types of motorhomes.

Class B Motorhomes:
Now, you are probably wondering  why we start from Class B motorhomes. Why not from Class A? It is because Class B Motorhomes are the smallest of all three classes of motorhomes. Many people, who don’t have much knowledge about motorhomes, have a misconception that Class B motorhomes are the middle-of-the-road option. This class of motorhome is built using a camper or cargo van as the base. This is the reason why some people call them campervans. However, most Class B motorhomes come with a roof high enough to allow its occupants to stand up inside. The lengths range from  18-26 feet. These motorhomes can accommodate cooking facilities, convertible bed/dinette, sink, fresh water and wastewater tanks, electric outlets etc. As space in Class B motorhomes is limited, they are not suitable for big families.

Class C Motorhomes:
Class C motorhomes, often referred as ‘cab-over’ motorhomes, are usually built on a truck chassis. Their lengths range from 22-35 feet. They offer a midpoint between Class A motorhomes and Class B motorhomes. Class C motorhomes feature stoves and ovens, storage tanks for water, dining areas, etc. They have more space than Class B motorhomes.

Class A Motorhomes:
Large and powerful Class A motorhomes are built on specially-constructed chassis, which are designed for motorhomes. Their lengths range from 26-45 feet. Most Class A motorhomes come with slide-outs. Accommodations in Class A Motorhomes include bedroom and bathroom, kitchen with microwave/oven, dining area, living area, etc. LCD TVs are becoming common in high-end Class A motorhomes. Full-timers, who move around a lot, prefer Class A motorhomes as this class offers the true convenience of being able to access living space while on the road.

The type of motorhome you need depends on your budget and requirements. If you are not sure which type of motorhome will serve your purpose, you can talk to one of the leading companies offering motorhomes for sale in Canada. You will be assisted promptly. As buying a motorhome needs a big investment, you should make your decision after a thorough research.
