Most often, RVs are associated with the possibility of trips, implying that an optional lifestyle is planned. In the end, it’s more than a vehicle; it’s a full-fledged RV.
This summer, RV sales, and rentals soared as people scrambled to salvage whatever vacation plans, they could in the face of coronavirus limitations. Those who came out of the woodwork to get a unit were singles, couples, and families who had never RVed before. RVs come in a wide range of kinds, shapes, sizes, and price ranges, each with its own set of benefits and drawbacks.
Buying a trailer is the most straightforward way to enter the recreational vehicle (RV) lifestyle. This is due to the fact that most owners just need their family’s SUV or truck to carry them. These are much less economical and they come in a wide range of designs, sizes, and price points.
RVs are divided into two types: motorized and non-powered. Motorized RVs integrate the living space, as well as the engine and transmission, into a single-vehicle. Non-motorized RVs are full dwelling units that may be dragged or towed by a powerful enough motor vehicle (such as a truck).
Motorized RVs are classified into four types, ranging from tiny camper vans to large Class As. Camper vans are vans that have been modified to create a tiny, walkable space in the rear that contains, at the very least, a sleeping area. Class B and C mobile homes are larger and can be about 30 feet long. The distinction between the two is as follows: In Class C, the bedroom is a sleeping area on top of the driver’s compartment, but in Class B, it is at the back. Both often have a kitchen, a dining table, and a toilet. These are frequently up to 30 feet long (ours was 37.5 feet long). They may also be equipped with up to five slide-outs, which extend the living areas while parked.
Then there are non-motorized RVs, which come in two varieties: travel trailers and fifth wheels. Travel trailers are towable housing units that range in size from small pop-ups and teardrop campers to huge Airstreams and even larger units. They must be pulled by vehicles with sufficient power for their size. Fifth wheels, on either side, are often bigger and have huge noses that house the bedroom. Those noses are linked to the beds of strong pickup trucks, making the connection more solid and sturdy. They are often as large as Class A motor homes and can include slide-outs to increase living space.
Weekend getaways are suitable for small pop-ups or teardrop campers, such as camper vans. Long-term seasonal trips are ideal for medium-sized travel trailers, such as Class B and C motor homes. Large travel trailers and fifth wheels, which are equivalent to Class A mobile homes, are suitable full-time residences, particularly if you plan to stay in one location for many months or longer.
Hybrid or expandable RV
Hybrid or expandable RV trailers provide more sleeping space without the drawbacks of a larger trailer, such as additional length and weight. It accomplishes this by combining the hard-sided body of a normal travel trailer with the folding trailer’s detachable end extensions. This design allows you to tow a smaller car while yet offering adequate sleeping space and conveniences for the entire family.
- Additional sleeping area without the extra weight and length
- Usually requires more time to assemble than a typical travel trailer.
- Tent-sided material must be maintained in excellent working order, and the fabric may need to be replaced at some point.
- At noisy locations, it does not prevent sound as well as totally hard-sided trailers.
Price: $10,000 to $40,000
Pickup vehicles are used to haul fifth-wheel trailers. The front of this trailer extends over a truck bed with a hitch beneath the forward quarters. The trailer has been placed into the pickup truck’s bed.
Fifth-wheel trailers are often huge and heavy, necessitating the use of at least a half-ton vehicle that has been factory-equipped to accommodate a hefty cargo. A few manufacturers, such as Escape fiberglass trailers, produce smaller fifth-wheels that may be readily hauled by smaller trucks.
- Make more living space available for their towing length
- When towing, hitches are frequently quite stable
- In most cases, a separate bedroom is located in the front
- A heavy-duty vehicle is frequently required
- Some bridges may not be accessible to people of tall stature
- When towing, the truck bed’s utilization will be limited
- There aren’t many really tiny fifth-wheel trailers on the market; “lightweight” trailers generally weigh at least 7,000 pounds
Price: $20,000 to $150,000
