For many travelers, the Class A motorhome is the answer. These large, luxurious RVs resemble a celebrity’s tour bus, offering ample space and plush amenities with footprints up to 45 feet long (and occasionally even longer).
While there are many different types, styles, and sizes of RV on the market, if you’re traveling with a big family or looking to bring indulgent amenities and furnishings to your camping trips, a Class A RV might be the right model for you.
What is Class “A”
Class A motorhomes are built using a very strong, heavy-duty frame. These frames are built on either a commercial bus chassis, a commercial truck chassis, or a motor vehicle chassis. The 18-wheeler trucks use a similar build. The big, 22.5 inch wheels support the heavy load of the Class A motorhome. With 8-10 MPG, the Class A motorhome has the worst fuel economy. There are usually a minimum of two slide-outs. For quality and luxury, the Class A motorhome is the way to go. Plenty of storage space and a roomy interior are what defines the Class A motorhome. 2-4 people can sleep in the motorhome as there is a bedroom located in the back and couches that fold down into beds in the living room area. If luxury, plenty of space, and an interior that resembles home is your concern, then choose the Class A motorhome.
