Buyer’s Guide: Different Types of RVs and Motorhomes For Sale

Having an RV is a great way to get out and see the country. You can save a lot of money by bringing your own accommodations with you, and it allows you to experience places in a whole new way. If you’re new to RV sales, you may not realize that there are so many options to choose from and Pedata RV Center can help out with this ultimate guide to different RVs you can buy.

When it comes to finding the right RV, you will have to consider a lot of different options. Usually on the top of that list is your budget. After that comes what you will be using the RV for. However, before you start thinking about these things, it’s helpful to know what types of RVs you have to choose from.

Motorized RVs

Most people are aware of the motorized RV category. These are the vehicles you see driving down the road that have the living quarters and cockpit combined. What you may not know is that there are different models within this category. These include the following.

Class A Diesel Motorhomes

These are usually the largest vehicles within this category, and the diesel engine is located near the back. It offers more torque compared to the gas vehicles in this category, and it comes with a smooth ride and luxury options. If you have plans on becoming a full-time RVer, then this may be the vehicle you’ll want to get.

Class A Gas Motorhomes

These are much like the diesel motorhomes in that they offer a lot of the comforts of home. However, they are usually smaller because the gas engine doesn’t have as much power as the diesel. They can still offer a smooth ride and are ideal for full-time RVers.

Class C Motorhomes

These are smaller than the other two options in the category, usually built on a truck frame. They come in both gas and diesel versions, and they may not have as many amenities as the other options. They can go more places because of their smaller size, so they may be ideal for people who like to camp or who travel with family or friends.

Class B Motorhomes

This is an even smaller motorized RV, and it is built on a van chassis. Coming in both gas and diesel versions, it can also come with 4-wheel drive capabilities, giving it the power and ability to get into some secluded areas. Since it is smaller than the other options, this choice is ideal for solo travelers or couples.

Towable RVs

When it comes to RV sales, in addition to motorized motorhomes, you can also get towable RVs. These also come in a variety of sizes and with different amenities.

Fifth Wheel Campers

This is the largest option in this category, and to get this to your camping spot, you will need a large pick-up truck that is fitted with a special hitch. These RVs can be incredibly large and spacious, so they are ideal for large families or people who like to camp in large groups. If you are considering getting one of these RVs, you’ll also need to buy a truck that can handle the weight of the camper and everything inside.

Toy Haulers

These RVs combine both living quarters and space for toys such as dirt bikes, golf cars, snowmobiles, and four wheelers, among others. These are equipped with heavy-duty doors that also double as a ramp for getting your toys in and out. They come in both towable and motorhome options.

Travel Trailers

This is an incredibly popular RV option that can be towed by a truck’s bumper or frame hitch. They are smaller in size and lighter in weight, so they are easy to take into various campgrounds and other places. They are also easy to set up and can come with slideouts for increased living space.

Pop-Up Campers

These campers have been around for a long time, and they are ideal for families who enjoy camping but don’t want to sleep on the ground. They are light and can be towed with a bumper hitch on your family vehicle. They are fitted with a hard base and canvas sides that pop-up and create the sleeping area. They have the ability to make camping more comfortable and enjoyable.

There are a lot of Used RV options for sale available. Some of the things you’ll need to consider when looking for the right RV include your budget and how you plan on using the vehicle. Once you know this, you are sure to find the one that will fit all of your wants and needs.
