Class RV Differences between A, B and C?

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

If you have been searching for an RV rental you may be overwhelmed by all the choices out there. Do you want a motorhome or an RV? What is a camper van? Is it the same as a camper? What is the difference between a Class A, Class B and a Class C RV? Is there a difference between a motor coach, a caravan, a Winnebago and a recreational vehicle? Let’s see if we can clear some of this up.

So a motorhome, RV, motor coach, caravan and recreational vehicle are all the same thing. A Winnebago is a brand name of a company that sells motorhomes.

Types of RVs

Camper Vans

When people use the term camper van they are referring to a Class B motorhome. Class B motorhomes come in two styles, basic and luxury. Both basic and luxury usually sleep 2 people although they can have seatbelts for more. Basic camper vans have seating that folds into a bed and a cooking area that can be accessed only from the back door of the vehicle. These camper vans tend to have a cheaper nightly rate. The basic camper van doesn’t have a toilet. The basic camper has a kitchen accessible from the outside. 

The luxury camper vans are the Road Trek and the Mercedes of camper van rentals. Like their more basic counterparts these camper vans have kitchens, but they are inside the camper and bathrooms with showers. Both the basic and the luxury camper vans usually have seating for up to five people, but may only have sleeping for two.

Class C RV

A Class C RV can come in a large range of sizes, as small as 19′ and as large as 35′. Class C motorhomes are characterized by having a large bed over the driving area in other words you can sleep more people.

Class A RV

Class A RV are the large bus style motorhomes that have the flat front. Class A RVs tend to be longer than Class C RVs however Class A RVs sleep less people are there is no large bed over the drivers area.

Gas Or Diesel

USA RV Rentals has great diesel RV rentals available. You may wonder why someone would rent a diesel RV over a gas motorhome. The first reason would be that a diesel RV is going to get better mileage than its gas counterpart. The second would be that diesel RVs usually have more luxury amenities than gas Class A motorhomes. Diesel RVs are more expensive to rent than gas motorhomes but the extra space inside, extra storage, and upgraded luxury amenities may be worth the extra dollars. Whether you rent a gas or a diesel RV rental we can help you find the perfect rental.

I think for the most part this has helped to clear up some of the confusion. Motorhome or RV, Class A, B or C, Campervan or motor coach USA RV rentals has the perfect vehicle for your next RV rental vacation.

Class A RV Rentals

Monday, February 6th, 2017

Class A RV’s are characterized by the large flat front, similar to a bus. While Class A RV’s tend to be the longest of the RV’s available they also tend to sleep fewer people as there is no bed over the driver’s area of the RV. Class A RV’s also tend to be the most luxurious RV’s available, having more high end features. These RV’s are usually over 28’ long and some can be as long as 45’. Driving a Class A RV will take a little practice as they drive a little differently than most vehicles. You will need to take corners wider than with most vehicles as a Class A handles more like a bus. Any Class A RV that you find available for rent on this site will only require a standard driver’s license. Class A’s can be rented from Phoenix (PHX), Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Denver (DEN), Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), Las Vegas (LAS), RENO (RNO), New York City (NYC), Dallas (DFW), Salt Lake City (SLC), and Seattle (SEA).

The motorhome you choose is really a matter of preference, and how many people you need to accommodate in your rental.
