A wide variety of campers are available in the US, from smaller station wagons up to large motorhomes. Some of the common types include:
Class A motorhomes are built on either a vehicle chassis, commercial truck chassis, or a commercial bus chassis, and run on either diesel or gas, depending on the type of engine.
Usually, Class A vehicles are fully loaded with all amenities and a large living space.
Some class B vehicles may include a toilet or freshwater tanks but not always. Class B vehicles usually have basic cooking equipment, folding beds, and limited storage space.
Class B vehicles are great for short term getaways.
Class C vehicles are a smaller version of the Class A motorhome. They are built on a truck or van cutaway chassis and operate on a gas-powered engine.
The Class C motorhome generally has sleeping quarters above the cab and more sleeping space in the back. Some Class Cs also have a slide-out option that helps increase the living space when the motorhome is parked.
Class C vehicles come equipped with a good amount of facilities including a self-contained toilet, refrigerator, heating or AC and cooking facilities.
Class C vehicles are very versatile and are great for both short or long term getaways.
