Just getting started? It might seem like a lot of information to take in, but really, RVs aren’t all that complicated. Take a look at what we mean in these introductory videos. We’ll walk you through each type and class of RV, and show you all of the basics you need to know.
Towable RVs require vehicle support to be moved from location to location. When purchasing, always verify your vehicle’s towing capabilities. Depending on the desired model, some RVs are small and lightweight enough to be towed by the family car, while others may require an upgraded vehicle, basic SUV, or pickup truck. Be sure to consider the added weight of personal belongings, as this contributes to the overall travel weight for your RV.
Ideal for solo adventurists or couples, these models are easy to tow, and feature a smaller, yet robust living space. All amenities and features have been designed to require as little space as possible, and allow the user to add or subtract different elements as they find their comfort level.
Most come with one camper queen bed in the front end of the model.
Most will have a full bathroom in the back end of the model.
Majority of these models are single axles, and towable with a midsize SUV, minivan, or half-ton truck.
The Travel Trailer category offers a wide berth of options, including smooth-sided (laminates) and corrugated-sided (conventional). These trailers are known most for their slide-out feature, which expands the interior living space at the push of a button!
Wide array of optional floorplans, with most being family-friendly bunkhouses.
Most models are towable with a half-ton truck; larger models require a ¾-ton truck.
Most models will include a full-size queen bed up front, with a curtain or solid door privacy wall.
Fifth Wheel RVs include an in-bed hitch, making them easier to tow than longer travel trailers. On the whole, most models have at least one slide-out side, allowing the user to expand the living area at will.
Most floorplans are rear living, with an emphasis toward couples who love to entertain, however, bunkhouse models are available upon request.
Shorter/lighter weight models towable by half-ton trucks; all towable by larger trucks.
Feature residential-style furniture and appliances, with most having a master bedroom in the cap up front.
These RV models are ideal for the adventurous single or camping couple who want to explore further into the wilderness. Each unit is designed and manufactured specifically to fit inside short- and long-bed trucks.
All truck campers have a camper queen bed located in the front/cab area.
All come with either a wet bath (toilet/shower combo) or dry bath (toilet and shower separate).
Select models are equipped with a slide-out to expand the living area.
Motorized RVs can freely move around, without the need to be attached to a vehicle or towed. Available in both gas and diesel builds, models are divided into three classes: the Class A (largest), the Class C (2nd largest), and the Class B (smallest). As a sizing reference, Class A RVs are built on a bus chassis, Class C models are built on a truck chassis, and Class B models are built on a full-size van chassis.

Class A gas motorhomes are created with both camping couples and families in mind. These motorhomes have the ability to sleep a minimum of four, plus have home-like benefits to put comfort into your RV life.
Less expensive to buy and maintain: parts and labor less specialized, easier to find service stations.
More resistant to cold, performs better at high altitudes.
A motorhome for those who need a little more power, Class A Diesel RVs follow the same build and feel of a typical Class A, but are housed on a diesel engine block. This slight adjustment can mean big improvements in power and the output of your RV, while still delivering on comfort.
More fuel efficient than the Class A gas model, and host an engine that will have a longer lifespan than a gas engine.
Superior low-end torque availability, allowing for better performance in the mountains.
Can be driven for long periods of time without maintenance, an advantage for full-timers.
Less maintenance overall when compared to the gas-driven model.
Ideal for the traveling couple who want more versatility in their planned destinations with a touch of sleek modern design. Most models are built with a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter (diesel) or Dodge Ram Promaster chassis (gas), and range in length from 20-22 feet.
Often referred to as camper vans.
Smallest available model in the class.
Better fuel economy, more maneuverability.
Size allows the model to be parked nearly anywhere - fits in a normal parking spot.
Motorhome built on a truck or van chassis, available in with a gas or diesel engine. Available in both gas and diesel builds, Class C RVs are built using a van chassis as a base. These models typically include an overhang extending over the cab, to be used as sleeping quarters or storage.
Perfect balance of space and price.
Attached cab with overhang, housing the sleeping quarters (often).
Generally offer more space when compared to a Class B model.
