Being a snowbird means spending a significant portion of the year down south in warmer weather. That means you have to have a motorhome or towable RV, whether new or used, that can be comfortable for you and your significant other or family for long periods of time. Class A motorhomes excel at this. They’re large, spacious and offer plenty in the way of comforts and amenities.
While you can pay upwards of a million dollars for a Class A motorhome, you certainly don’t have to. Class A’s can be purchased for a very affordable price, especially with the right financing package. You may even find that a Class A, which you might have thought was going to be out of your reach, is more affordable than you ever could have dreamed.
Still, that’s only going to happen if you choose right. Here are five great Class A RVs for snowbirds that not only have everything you need but come with an affordable price tag.
2019 Winnebago Intent 26M
First up is the Winnebago Intent 26M. This unique Class A motorhome features two slide outs on the driver’s side of the RV. The one closest to the front of the unit houses a dinette and a residential size refrigerator as well as a small pantry. The rest of the kitchen is on the opposite wall. The bathroom is split to either side of the RV—the shower on the driver side and the toilet and sink on the passenger side. The queen bed is at the rear of the unit and there’s also a drop-down bunk over the cab.
This is a gas Class A coach meaning it features a Ford F53 chassis with a gasoline-powered V10 engine that makes 460 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. The RV measures 26.83 feet in length and can sleep up to five people comfortably.
2019 Thor Vegas 24.1
Looking for something a little more compact? The Thor Vegas 24.1 is the perfect Class A motorhome for you. The model features a kitchen on the camp side of the unit, a slide-out on the driver’s side with a sofa bed in front of a removable pedestal table, a bathroom next to that, and two twin beds at the rear of the unit. The two twin beds can be converted into a single large king-size bed. There’s also a drop-down bunk over the cab.
The Vegas 24.1 is built on the Ford E-450 chassis. It’s powered by a gas V10 engine that makes 420 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque. The unit measures 25.5 feet in overall length and sleeps four, so it’s not quite as large as the others mentioned here. That means it should be easier to control on the road.
2019 Winnebago Intent 29L
The Winnebago Intent 29L might share the Intent name with the Winnebago discussed above, but the model is far from the same. It features a single large slide on the driver’s side that houses a sofa bed, the kitchen, a wardrobe, and additional storage. On the passenger side are the dinette, bathroom, and queen-size bed. There is a drop-down bunk over the cab above the swivel chairs and multi-position table.
This gas Class A coach is built on the Ford F53 chassis. That means it has a burly V10 engine that kicks out 460 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. The Intent 29L sleeps up to six people thanks to its 29.83-foot length.
2019 Jayco Alante 26X
The Jayco Alante 26X is a unit that features two slide outs, one on either side of the RV. On the driver’s side, the slide houses the sofa and the dinette. On the passenger side, the slide houses the queen-size bed. Also on the passenger side of the RV is the kitchen and a wardrobe. The bathroom is in the rear driver’s side corner of the RV. There’s also a drop-down overhead bunk above the cab area.
The Alante 26X is a gas Class A motorhome and is built on the Ford F53 chassis. That means it has a 460 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque V10 powering the unit. The model is 27.42 feet in length and can sleep up to six people comfortably.
2019 Fleetwood Flair 29M
The Fleetwood Flair 29M offers a layout similar to the Winnebago Intent 29L but it has different features where the dinette is. The unit features an L-shaped dinette there and there’s a 39-inch table on the wall that separates the bathroom from the rest of the unit’s floorplan. There’s a large slide on the driver’s side of the Rv with a sofa, the kitchen and a dresser and wardrobe in the bedroom. Speaking of the bedroom, the unit features a large king-sized bed at the rear of the RV. As almost always with Class A motorhomes, there’s a drop-down bunk over the cab.
This is a gas Class A coach. It’s built on the Ford F53 chassis and that means it gets a V10 engine good for 460 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque. This particular model measures 31 feet in length and can sleep up to five people comfortably.
