Common RV Types

FCIS Insurance RV Lifestyle

Nowadays, there are many RV options from trailers to motorhomes. This can often lead to consumers wondering what these two categories entail and what the best option for them is. Here are the most common RV types and what makes them stand out against the other options:

Travel Trailer and Fifth-Wheel 

Travel trailers and fifth-wheels, as the names suggest, are trailers that attach to the back of passenger auto or heavy-duty truck. The difference, however, is that travel trailers connect to the bumper with a ball-and-coupler hitch and fifth-wheel trailers attach using a jaw hitch. These detachable trailers make various vacation trips easy. Another benefit of travel trailers is you can maintain it much easier than regular motorhomes. They also tend to have a better price point than most motorhome options.

Class A

Class A RVs are about 30-45 feet long and look like buses. This motorhome allows for a lot of storage and living space, making transporting large groups easy. These RVs are also higher off the ground, allowing for more storage space below. Washers and dryers are also much more attainable for this style of RV. If you need space for about 10 people to sleep on a trip, this is the RV for you.

Class B

Class B RVs are a mix between campers and vans and the roof is high enough for passengers to stand. This smaller option makes it easier to maneuver and better for outdoor trips. Along with its small features come much larger gas mileages and lower costs compared to the other classes.

Class C

Class C RVs are similar in style to Class Bs, but they are larger and have a passageway to the body of the RV. Compared to Class A motorhomes, Class C RVs have an extra entrance and are fairly easy to handle. These motorhomes also feature spaces above the cab of the vehicle, allowing for even more sleeping and storage room.
