If you’ve decided that you would like to either buy or rent an RV, the next thing you will need to decide is what specific type of RV you would like.
While you can use resources such as Outdoorsy to help you explore your options in Brandon, it’s still wise to have a basic idea of the different types of RVs that are out there so you can more effectively narrow your search.
Here are the top types of RV’s you can buy or rent in Brandon, Florida:
A Class A RV is probably what comes to mind when you think of the word ‘motorhome.’ These are the biggest type of RV available and practically have an entire house inside of them, and they can have anywhere from one to five slide outs. These are also the most expensive RVs available, with new Class A’s rarely costing below sixty grand.
Class B motorhomes use a van as their foundation, and are of a more compact size than a Class A motorhome. In fact, some Class B motorhomes look more like vans than they do like RVs. They’ll still have a living space, a bedroom, a kitchen, and a bathroom and all that (at least usually), but everything will be in a much more compact and maneuverable size.
A more more popular types of RVs is the Class C motorhome, which is effectively a cross between a Class A and Class B. Class C motorhomes use a large truck as their foundation and are notable for always having an extra sleeping space over the cab. They can be built to the same sizes as a Class A motorhome, but are much cheaper.
A travel trailer, obviously, is simply an RV that you tow behind a truck. Travel trailers can vary in size dramatically from twelve up to thirty feet long, with an impressive array o luxuries as well. Prices of travel trailers can also vary dramatically, with prices ranging from as low as ten thousand to as high as one hundred thousand.
5th Wheel Trailer
The 5th Wheel Trailer is a larger sized travel trailer with a hatch pin that connects to a mount in the bed of a large pickup truck. The advantage is that the 5th wheel travel trailer is therefore much easier to pull, especially over rough or uneven terrain. However, you will need a truck that is fully capable of hauling the trailer (heavy duty trucks are really the only choice here).
Types of RVs
The type of RV you choose determines everything from the expense to the layout to how much storage space you have and so on. Now that you know what the basic types of RVs are, you’ll be able to narrow your search down more efficiently.
