Intro To RVs: Motorhomes 2161

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.

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.
