If you have decided that now is the time to get an RV, you are in luck, as our dealership is here to help. If you're new to the process of shopping for an RV, rest assured that we can help you make a great selection. Since getting an RV is a highly personalized decision, you'll first need to think about what you want to use the RV for. From there, you can narrow your search by popular categories such as towables, motorhomes, and haulers, or tiny trailers.
If you're planning an extended road trip, a larger RV such as a Class A or a diesel motorhome may be what you need. These vehicles use a special chassis with an engine located in the back. Diesel-based vehicles generally produce more power than their gasoline counterparts, and they offer more torque for towing. Most diesel motorhomes fall into the category of luxury RV, which means they're ideal for comfortable cross-country trips.
Class A motorhomes that are gasoline-based often come equipped with lifestyle amenities such as microwaves, washing machines, dryers, and even kitchenettes. They also have tremendous storage volumes. Class B motorhomes, sometimes called camper vans, are usually built with a van chassis. They are the most nimble and agile of the Class-based motorhome series. Most are 20-25 feet long on average, but they have spacious interiors designed to hold all the features you need for a long-distance trip.
Class C motorhomes are slightly larger and generally built on a truck chassis. They have a shorter length than Class A motorhomes, which means they can go places that their larger peers generally cannot.
If you're planning to use an RV for towing, fifth-wheel campers are a good option. Most can be pulled by conventional large pickup trucks with a hitch attachment system. They often have plenty of space and small nooks used as a makeshift bedroom or living area. Most vehicles in this category have slideouts that expand the living and usable space available.
If you're planning to get this type of RV, it is also essential to make sure that you have a base vehicle capable of towing the trailer's weight. Haulers, or sporty utility recreational vehicles, are another option. These trailers are smaller and design to carry your favorite weekend toys and outdoor gear such as dirt bikes, bicycles, motorcycles, and even larger items such as kayaks and golf carts.
