Find an RV

Don't know what kind of RV is right for you? Here's some information that just might help you narrow down your options. Remember, going to an RV show or large dealership is always a great idea to see what innovative options are out there to best suit your needs!

Class A: These are the big daddy's that you see cruising down the road, usually with a retired couple at the helm. Often Class A RVers are full-timers and that's why the luxuries and amenities of these rigs are perfect for the full-time or frequent RVer lifestyle. Class A's range in size from 30 to 45 feet and come with gas or diesel engines. Their classic full front window view design allows for easy viewing along scenic drives. Everything you need can be found inside, some models even offering washers and dryers, multiple slide outs or full-body slides, several LCD televisions and large storage spaces. Some of the biggest even have a garage in the rear for the Smart Car! The downside of these big rigs (and the reason you rarely see a family aboard) is the lack of sleeping space and maneuverability. Without the cab-over bunk, many families find this option just to limiting, but you can find bunkhouse models on the market if a Class A is how you'd like to roll down the road.

Class B: This option is not family friendly, but is a better option for a single camper or couple. Built on a van chassis, these smaller, fuel efficient vehicles are great for zipping around town as well as getting you to your destination in style. With smaller storage spaces, tighter sleeping arrangements and fewer luxuries than their Class A counterpart, these models are becoming more popular and innovative with slide outs, larger restrooms and sleek interior design and style. You can go anywhere in a Class B!

Class C: The Class C motorhome is the classic "motorhome" that people think of when the word comes into conversation. The cabover bunk, queen bed in the rear and dinette and sofa sleeping options allow families of all shapes and sizes more than enough sleeping arrangement possibilities. These rigs can be as short as 20 feet, and usually top out at 35 feet. With a variety of floor plan options and upgrades, these rigs offer families lots of storage, sleeping, and space. More expensive and higher end models have many of the conveniences and amenities of some Class As, including mutliple slides, full body paint, and outdoor kitchens and entertainment centers. The downside: you rarely get a big "ooooohhhhh look at that motorhome" when you pull into camp.

Super C: The Super C model has all the same conveniences of a standard Class C motorhome merged with the power of a Class A diesel engine. These rigs are popular because of their engine power, flexible floor plans, multiple slide outs and drive ability. The only difference between the Super C and the standard Class C, is the expensive price tag that comes with the diesel engine. Plan on paying about $25,000 to $50,000 more for this one over it's gas-engine cousin.

Fifth Wheels: With a combination of luxury and convenience, fifth wheels are often for the serious or full-time RVer. These huge trailers hitch up in the bed of a powerful pick-up truck. Floor plans are frequently spacious and feel more like "home" because of high ceilings, completely separate master bedroom and bath, kitchens islands, ceiling fans, and fireplaces! Another convenience: Situating yourself at camp and then driving away to see the sights in a maneuverable-friendly truck. The downside? These trailers are quite large, heavy, and need an experienced driver, as backing into a spot can get tricky at times.

Travel Trailer: This economical option offers a lot of conveniences and amenities that convince many RVers to stick with this setup throughout their camping career. The travel trailer is much more affordable than it's engine counterparts, comes in a variety of lengths (anywhere from 15 to 35 feet), and provides endless sleeping arrangements and floorplans. The smallest of these offer all the "necessities" you would need while camping: bathroom, stove top, dining table, and bed, while the largest of travel trailers have separate bunkhouse rooms for the kids, multiple slide outs and tons of storage space! Other manufacturers offer a hybrid version that is a combination of the standard travel trailer and the pop-up trailer. If you are looking for a particular floor plan, you're sure to find it! Some innovative designs even have "loft" areas, dual entries, or rooftop decks. Another plus, lightweight varieties and the ability to leave camp set up while you visit attractions in the comfort of your towing vehicle.

Want to bring your dirt bikes, ATVs or Harley along on your trip? Well, then a toy hauler is what you need! Popular with off-roaders who want to sleep where they play, all of the modern conveniences found in travel trailers are also in the toy hauler package: flushing toilets, running water, ample storage and plenty of fridge space to keep your drinks cool! These floorplans offer a completely separate garage from the living area that offers built in tool shelves to keep your gear in, while others have a combined setup. And don't worry about sleeping space. These bad boys often have more sleeping space than regular travel trailers because of the loft space. The toy hauler model has gained such popularity, that they are even found in Class C, Super C and Class A models too!

If you're not sure if you want to invest in an expensive rig and want to try out the camping lifestyle without dealing with setting up a tent and carrying your life in a cooler, a pop-up trailer might be just the right thing for you! Priced at the $5,000 mark, pop-ups are the cheapest wheeled option out there to get yourself off the ground at night. They are easy to tow, lightweight, great on gas mileage, and have plenty of sleeping space. The downside is they are typically more work to set up once you get to camp. Hand cranks, bed platforms and brace bars are a few of the things you'll be dealing with once you park, but the cheap price tag might be worth it to you. More expensive models come featured with automatic deploy systems. Their canvas walls can work for or against you in different climates.  Most of the conveniences of a travel trailer are here. The key differences between a travel trailer and a pop-up: price, set-up, smaller refrigerator, cartridge toilet, less storage, and no A/C. Some of the high end options offer slide outs and can sleep up to eight people comfortably! If you're new to camping, this might be just the right fit for you!
