There are almost as many types of RV available around the world as there are types of people with appropriate budgets who would like to get one and take to the roads.
RV simply refers to Recreational Vehicle and these consist of a number of different units. The clear early distinction that you can make is between those that are towed by another vehicle and those that are powered by their own engines.
RVs that are powered by their own engine generally start out at the budget end of the market, it if there is such a thing as a budget end to a market that includes vehicles, with the Van Camper. This is also know as a Camper Van and falls into the class B category of motorhome. The one that come to mind immediately when you think about this type of vehicle is the vintage Volkswagen campervan. With its connotations of freedom and perhaps an alternative lifestyle it is probably more of a state of mind than a campervan. In any event it occupies a place in the mind of anybody who has ever camped and it is embedded in the 20th century culture of the western world.
The Class B motorhome does not begin and end however with the Volkswagen and there are many different makes and models available. These will get you out there in basic comfort and versatility and you can cover as many miles as you want. They are particularly suited to a small family unit and in particular those who like to be active while they are on vacation.
The Class C Mini Motorhome is the next step up from the Van Camper and they start out not too far removed from that vehicle. They can, at this end of the marked, start off as fairly basic vehicles albeit with practically everything that you need on board. This includes kitchen area, toilet, shower, heating and an entertainment system. These units go from reasonably small RVs to really quite large ones and you can have a class C that is almost as big as a bus, a small one anyway. At the top end of the market this range is luxurious and includes everything you need for a great vacation. The class C in generally recognisable by its distinctive sleeping area which is built forward of the main body of the van and occupies the space over the cab.
This Mini Motorhome is generally suitable for a range of pockets and for different types of usage. People spend relatively small amounts of money and use them occasionally and others can spend a lot on bigger vehicles and use them a lot. Some people go full time in them and will spend years or months away from home seeing the world in comfort and style.
The Class A Motorhome market doesn’t have a budget end, not that most of us would notice at any rate. This sets out to be large, entirely luxurious and to include not just everything that you might want but a few things that you have never thought of as well. Have you considered taking a bathtub with you in you motorhome? You can in one of these because they are literally as big as a bus and can fit anything you want on board.
If you choose the option of towing your RV using a car, 4×4 or other vehicle your range of options is probably more varied.
Starting out with something like a teardrop caravan will give you something that is very easy to tow and which you can sleep in. It may have a kitchen which is accessible from outside the caravan and all things taken together it is a very neat piece of design. This one is suitable for the caravanner who likes to do other stuff when he or she gets there rather than sit around in the van. There is no room for sitting around.
The rigid caravan has fixed sides and a fixed roof and comes in sizes that vary from two berth to larger 6 and even 8 berth units. They can travel on single axles and some of the longer heavier units have twin axles making them a little more difficult to tow. For these larger units you will need a big tow-vehicle like a 4 x 4 or a large van. These caravans can be used by everybody from couples to larger families and with the addition of any number of different types of awning become a comfortable and relatively spacious living area.
Some caravans have fold out and slide out sections which increase the living space available to you. The fold out ones can be pop tops where you can raise and lower the roof or they cone in a form where you can extend the front or the rear of the van in much the same way as the system used for raising the roof. These caravans are great if you have limited storage space at home and need to keep it in a relatively low or short parking space.
