Does everybody know what RV stands for?

A Recreational Vehicle is a motor vehicle or trailer which includes living quarters designed for accommodation. 

There are many different types of RV models available, giving you the ability to pick the most cost-effective one for your needs. The cost of renting can be as low as $55 per day for a small travel trailer and $125 per day for a small motorhome. An older model camper van may rent for about $100 per day while Class A motorhomes can be as much as $500 a day. Knowing the main differences between the different types of models will help you choose the right one for your trip.

 

Teardrop Trailers 

This type of RV has a distinct teardrop shape and is basically a bedroom on wheels, although larger floor plans can include a kitchen/dining area and a wet bath. These RVs typically weigh less than 4,000 lbs. and have very limited storage space.

 

Pop-Up Campers 

These RVs have canvas sides that extend from a hard base to provide a sleeping space that is off of the ground. They are lightweight, so they can be towed by the family vehicle, and they are affordable, making them an ideal choice for young families.

 

Travel Trailers

These are some of the most popular RV models because there are many different floor plans and styles available. They are also easier to detach and set up in a campground than some other types of RVs. These RVs are towed by a bumper hitch or a frame hitch located on the front of the trailer and can weigh from less than 4,000 lbs. to over 10,000 lbs., depending on the model.

 

Sport Utility RVs 

These RVs are built to carry outdoor gear and additional vehicles, including dirt bikes, golf carts, snowmobiles, kayaks, and ATVs. They typically have heavy-duty doors that can lay down to create ramps to make loading gear and vehicles easier. These types of RVs are available in both towable and motorized models.

 

Fifth Wheel Campers

These campers are the largest type of towable RV and are generally towed with a large pick-up truck. They tend to have a raised forward section over the fifth wheel. Some floor plans have multiple slide-outs and an extended length. Many people like these RVs because the towing vehicle can be detached for daily travel while the camper stays parked at a campground.

 

Class B Camper Vans

This type of RV is typically built on a van chassis and tends to drive like a standard automobile. They usually are between 20-25 feet in length and can be powered by a gas or diesel engine. These RVs are very popular with solo travelers and couples because of amenities like swiveling toilets, fold-away sinks, and sleeping spaces that convert from seats to beds in just a few minutes.

 

Class C Motorhomes 

These RVs have a unique “cab-over” profile and are usually built on a truck chassis, allowing them to go places where larger RVs can’t. While small in size, they tend to have kitchens, bathrooms, and slide-outs that extend the living space. There are numerous floor plans available for both the gas engine and diesel engine types of this RV class.

 

Class A Gas And Diesel Motorhomes

These motorhomes are a popular choice due to the residential-style appliances, high-quality electronics, and ample storage space included with most models. They are the largest RVs available, generally measuring about 30 to 40 feet in length with large windows and a vertical front windshield. The diesel engine, while more expensive, has more torque than its gas-powered counterpart, providing more power and helping the engine last longer.
