What is a Motorhome?
A motorhome is a motorized RV designed for comfort as you hit the road with your friends and family. It is also sometimes called a ‘drivable RV’ and you will find varieties powered by gas or diesel engines.
The Three Classes of Motorhomes
There are three different classes of motorhomes: Class B, Class C, and Class A.
Built on a van chassis, Class B motorhomes are easily maneuverable and ideal for couples. All Class B motorhomes sleep at least two but some can sleep up to four people. They range in length from 16-24 feet. A new Class B runs from $60,000 to more than $100,000.
Shop Class B RVs.
Built on a truck chassis, Class C motorhomes have an overhang located above the cabin that is often used as an extra bed or storage area. Great for couples or small families, a Class C can sleep anywhere from four to nine people. Class C motorhomes are available from 20 to over 30 feet in length. A new Class C is typically priced from $50,000 to more than $200,000.
Shop Class C RVs.
Well equipped with all the comforts of home, Class A motorhomes accommodate four to eight people and vary in length from 20 to more than 40 feet. A new Class A can range from $60,000 to more than $600,000.
Shop Class A RVs (gas or diesel).

My wife and I are talking about leaving the renting apartment thing and liveing in a camper, we have talked about this for a long time. We want something big enough, but safe enough for us to handle. Small down payment and monthly payment. I am on social security, and I am disabled.. so I have permanent income, so there would be no problem with me paying, and my money wouldn’t be going to rent. I would rather pay for a rv camper that would be ours than to r keep paying rent until we die.. I am 59 my wife is 53. Could you give us some ideas ??
