Intro To RVs: Types & Classes 5456

What are the Types of RVs?

When it comes to RVs, there are two categories: motorized and towable. Regardless of what RV you decide to travel in, they’ll ultimately fall into one of these two categories.

What is a Motorized RV?

A motorized RV, also referred to as a motorhome or drivable RV, is designed for comfort and can be powered by either gas or diesel engines. Motorized RVs are broken down into three classes: Class B, Class C, and Class A.

What is a Towable RV?

A towable RV is a trailer-style RV that requires a tow vehicle. Designed to be towed by a pickup truck or an SUV, towable campers are sometimes light enough to be towed by smaller vehicles like a car or sedan as well. Towable RVs come in a wide range of sizes that include pop-ups, expandable campers, travel trailers, fifth wheels, and toy haulers.
