Your Guide To Buying The Right RV For You

Are you excited for your next camping trip? If so, you might want to get an RV!

Before you rush out to buy an RV, however, you need to ensure that you pick the one that best suits your needs. Let’s take a look at how to pick the right RV for your vacation.

Types of RVs


A vehicle and living quarters all rolled into one piece. Class A motorhomes are the biggest motorhomes, equipped with everything you see in a conventional home (including showers, stoves, and washing machines). Class B motorhomes are much smaller and take on the appearance of vans. While their living quarters are smaller, they still offer plenty of amenities for frequent travellers. Class C motorhomes are a happy medium between the Class A and Class B.

Travel Trailers:

Unlike RVs, these are separate trailers that attach to the back of your vehicle. The size of these trailers and their amenities vary greatly depending in price. While the smallest travel trailers are just four feet long, the largest variety(approximately 35 feet long) can have multiple bedrooms and fully-equipped kitchens.

Pop Up Campers:

Much like travel trailers, pop ups also attach to the back of your vehicle. The difference, however, is that once you reach your destination and detach them from your vehicle, you can expand them to create a larger living area. While they may have little storage space, these campers typically come with basic kitchen and bathroom facilities, along with sleeping arrangements for numerous people when fully expanded.

Making A Decision

In order to determine the best RV for you, ask yourself the following questions:

What kind of camping do I want to do? 

If you are thinking of doing a lot of sightseeing, then it might be a good idea to use a travel trailer or pop up trailer that you can leave at your campsite while touring around in your car. 

What is my destination?
If you intend on camping in a national park, then a motorhome might be your best option. If you want to drive around the city, on the other hand, then you might find it easier to maneuver with a travel trailer or pop up.

How much space do I need?

For a large family, it would be wise to opt for a larger travel trailer or motorhome. For smaller crowds, a cheaper travel trailer or pop up might be sufficient.

How long is my trip?

If you’re travelling for several weeks or months, then the storage space and luxurious living area that comes with large travel trailers and motorhomes are essential. For weekend getaways and low-budget trips, a small, affordable pop up or travel trailer might be a better idea.

The Bottom Line

Now that you have gained an insight into the different types of RVs and their functions, you can make an informed decision and select the right RV for your dream vacation!
