A, B, or C - Which RV Class is Right for Your Family?

When you’re deciding on a family RV, it’s easy to feel a little overwhelmed by the amount of options you’ll be faced with. Whether you’ve been in an RV before or not, it’s important to know some of the differences so you can make the best choice for your needs.

So, whether you’re heading out on a long road trip or you want an RV that can take you camping all over the country, let’s look at some of the differences between Class A, Class B, and Class C RVs.

In a future blog, we’ll talk more about other types of campers, so stay tuned!

Pros and Cons of a Class A RV

A class A RV is for people who need some serious power, space, and luxury. They are usually the biggest types of campers, and can even haul a vehicle. Because they’re built on a commercial chassis, the driving compartment is seamlessly integrated into the interior, instead of separate.

Some of the biggest benefits to a Class A RV include:

  • Spacious
  • Luxurious
  • Perfect for long trips
  • Great for big families
  • Large towing capacity

But, just because Class A rigs are powerful and spacious doesn’t mean they’re the right choice for everyone. Some of the potential cons include:

  • Poor fuel economy
  • May be difficult to drive

Additionally, some campgrounds or national parks may not allow such large vehicles. That’s why it’s important to know what you plan on using the RV for before you make your purchase.

Pros and Cons of a Class B RV

As you might expect, Class B RVs are a bit smaller. They’re often known as “camper vans,” but they can easily accommodate a couple or small family. They are usually fit with a kitchen, living room, and bathroom.

So, what are the pros of a Class B RV?

  • Easy to drive
  • Best fuel economy
  • Easy to park almost anywhere

Some of the cons include:

  • Very little storage space
  • Not ideal for larger families

If you’ve got a small family or even if you’re flying solo, a Class B RV can be a great fit for you, but if you’re looking for something with a lot of space, it’s probably not the best option.

Pros and Cons of a Class C RV

Class C RVs are great for people who are RVing for the first time. They work for singles, couples, and families alike. They can usually sleep between 5-8 people and have ample storage space. The main bedroom usually extends over the cab of the truck itself, and you can choose styles with different layouts to fit your needs.

Some of the benefits of a Class C RV include:

  • Easy to drive
  • Variety of sizes and layouts
  • Great for getaways and camping trips
  • Good fuel economy

Some of the cons of this type of RV include:

  • Difficult to drive in cramped or busy spaces
  • May not have enough storage space for larger families

These are, of course, just the basics when it comes to all of these models. But, choosing the right one to fit your family’s needs will make your RV experience better than ever. If you’re currently in the market for an RV, keep these pros and cons in mind when deciding which class is right for you.
