"What type of RV is the right fit for you?"
Purchasing an RV is a big decision. Sort of like choosing who you are going to marry. At least with an RV if you get tired of it, you can sell it and take the money and buy a better one. It doesn't quite work that way with a marriage. There are many factors to consider when looking for an RV.
Have a motor, that's why they are called Motorhomes or Motor Homes. This category includes the following classes of RVs:
Class A: The Class A Motorhome is the classiest of the motorized RVs
Class B: These are vans that have been converted to small RVs
Class C: These are built on Van Chassis, they are smaller than a Class A but larger than a Class B
Don't have a motor. This category includes the following type of RVs:
Fifth Wheel Trailer: The classiest of the non-motorized RVs. Requires a specially outfitted truck to pull.
Travel Trailer: Not as much space as a 5th wheeler, but can be towed by a larger variety of vehicles.
Tent Trailer: Like camping in a tent, but much more comfortable. Can be towed by almost any vehicle (with the exception of a Yugo).
Truck Camper: A little house that goes on the back of your truck and you will still be able to tow your boat.
Just an FYI here, if you have a tent it is not considered an RV unless you find some way of installing wheels on it :-)
Even the Types of RVs categories above have sub-categories within them. Look at the separate RV class pages to get a listing of those.
