What is a Class A RV?

Class A RVs are the largest and most luxurious types of motorhomes available. A class A RV is characterized by its boxy, bus-like shape. These RVs feature a flat vertical front with an expansive windshield. This design maximizes interior space and gives you a great view of the road ahead. These RVs are designed for long-haul travel and extended stays at campgrounds.

Class A RVs are built on heavy-duty commercial chassis, typically from manufacturers like Ford, Freightliner, or Spartan. Oftentimes a commercial bus chassis is used. Popular Class A RV brands include Winnebago, Thor Motor Coach, Tiffin Motorhomes, and Newmar, among others.

These are large RVs. Class As range in length from 25-45 feet. Most models have a dual rear axle. Class A motorhomes usually have one side door to enter and exit. There are no cab doors. The exterior is usually made from fiberglass or aluminum.

Class A motorhomes are available with either a diesel or gas engine. Diesel-powered Class A RVs are often referred to as “diesel pushers” due to the rear-mounted engine configuration. They have a towing capacity of 5,000-20,000 pounds. This allows you to tow a vehicle, a boat, or a cargo trailer.

The amenities found in Class A RVs are second to none. They provide a level of comfort and convenience that rivals many traditional homes. The kitchen area features top-of-the-line full-sized appliances including a refrigerator, microwave, stove, oven, and even a dishwasher. The bathroom comes fully equipped with a shower, toilet, and vanity. Sometimes there is a bathtub. The sleeping quarters boast comfortable beds, often including a master suite with a queen or king-sized bed as well as a convertible bed or bunk bed.

Additional amenities in Class A RVs may include entertainment systems, washer and dryer units, and slide-outs for extra living space. There is also ample storage both inside and outside the vehicle. Outdoor amenities include awning-covered patios, exterior TVs, and outdoor kitchens.

These motorhomes are particularly popular among campers who prioritize luxury, space, and comfort while traveling, and those who spend extended periods of time on the road, such as full-time RVers, retirees, and families. Most class A motorhomes can comfortably accommodate 6-8 people. These are expensive RVs. They range in price from $50,000 to over $1,000,000. The average price is around $250,000.

What is a Class C RV?

A Class C RV is a mid-sized recreational vehicle that is built on a cutaway truck or van chassis. The front of the RV looks like a van. The living quarters are built into a fiberglass or aluminum box that is bolted onto the chassis. Common chassis used to build class C motorhomes include the Ford E-Series, Chevrolet Express, or Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

Class C RVs are easily recognizable by their distinctive cab-over bed. This is an extended section that sits above the cab that houses a sleeping area. This creates a very recognizable profile. These RVs have a driver and passenger side door on the cab as well as a side door that leads directly into the living quarters.

An older class C RV

Class C RVs typically range in length from 20 to 35 feet. The smaller size makes class C RVs a more maneuverable and compact alternative to their larger Class A counterparts. Class C motorhomes have a towing capacity of 5,000-8,000 pounds. That’s enough to bring a tow vehicle or boat.

Despite their smaller size, Class C RVs come equipped with a variety of amenities. The kitchen area is often equipped with essential appliances such as a refrigerator, microwave, stove, and sink. The appliances usually aren’t full-sized. The bathroom in a Class C RV usually includes a small shower, a toilet, and a sink. The sleeping accommodations include the cab-over bed as well as a convertible dinette or sofa.

Additional amenities in Class C RVs may consist of entertainment systems, slide-out sections for increased living space, ample storage both inside and outside the vehicle, and outdoor features like awnings and exterior storage compartments. While not as large or luxurious as Class A RVs, Class C motorhomes still offer a comfortable and spacious living environment for travelers.

Class C motorhomes can cost anywhere from $60,000-$250,000. Average models sell for around $100,000. Some popular Class C motorhome brands include Winnebago, Coachmen, Thor Motor Coach, and Jayco.

These motorhomes appeal to a diverse range of campers, including first-time RVers, families, and couples. Most models accommodate 4-6 people. Their smaller size and increased maneuverability make them suitable for a variety of camping situations, from weekend getaways to extended road trips. This is the most popular class of RV.

What is the Difference Between a Class A and Class C RV

The main difference between class A and class C RVs is their size. Class A RVs are significantly longer and more spacious. Class C RVs are more compact. This difference in size can impact maneuverability, parking, storage capacity, and the overall living space available.

The shape is also different. Class A RVs are boxy and rectangular with a vertical windshield, like a tour bus. Class C motorhomes have a distinctive cab over bed.

In terms of amenities and luxuries, Class A RVs are often considered the pinnacle of motorhome living. They feature high-end fixtures, spacious floor plans, and use premium materials in their construction. They are luxurious. Class C RVs, while still well-equipped, generally offer a more modest level of luxury.

Cost is another notable distinction between these two motorhome classes. Class A RVs, with their larger size and upscale features, command a higher price. Class C RVs are often more budget-friendly.

Despite these differences, Class A and Class C motorhomes share several similarities. Both types of motorhomes are self-contained. They offer a range of amenities for comfortable living including a full kitchen and bathroom. Both types of RVs also allow you to freely move between the cab and living space. They provide the freedom to travel and explore the open road. Both types cater to a variety of camping preferences and styles, from weekend warriors to full-time RVers.

Class A Vs Class C RV

In the following sections, I’ll outline the differences between class A and class C RVs in-depth. I’ll also mention some benefits and drawbacks of both designs.

Motorhome Size: Length, Width, Height, and Weight

Class A RVs are larger than class C RVs. On average, Class A RVs range in length from 30 to 45 feet, with a height of about 13 feet, and a width of around 8.5 feet. To compare, Class C RVs are more compact, generally measuring between 20 and 35 feet in length, with a height of around 10 to 12 feet, and a similar width of 8.5 feet.

Class A RVs are also heavier than class C RVs. Class A RVs weigh from 13,000 to 30,000 pounds depending on the size. To compare, Class C motorhomes usually weigh between 10,000 and 14,000 pounds.

Size is an important factor to consider when choosing an RV. The height should be considered when planning routes and parking. When driving a tall vehicle, you need to pay attention to height restrictions, such as bridges and tunnels. You must also look for low-hanging trees while driving through campgrounds.

Some campgrounds also have maximum lengths. In smaller campgrounds in some state parks, national parks, and national forests, the maximum RV size that can fit is 28 feet. You can’t camp everywhere with a large RV. You have more campsite options when you drive a smaller RV.

Motorhomes longer than 28 feet can’t fit in some smaller campgrounds.

Some roads also have weight limits. When driving an RV, you have to obey these weight limits. Most class A RVs are under the limit but it is something to be aware of. Check out this guide for more info on weight limits.

The larger size and weight of Class A RVs has both benefits and drawbacks. On the positive side, longer RVs have more living and storage space, making them ideal for extended stays or full-time living. Furthermore, their larger size allows for more luxurious amenities, such as full size appliances and roomier bathrooms.

However, the increased size and weight can make Class A RVs more challenging to maneuver, particularly in tight spaces or on narrow roads. They also tend to consume more fuel and may require a special driving license.

The smaller size and lighter weight of Class C RVs offer several advantages. Their compact design makes them easier to drive and park, particularly in urban settings or crowded campgrounds. Their lighter weight also translates to better fuel efficiency.

However, the smaller size may limit living and storage space, making them potentially less suitable for extended stays or larger families. The amenities in Class C motorhomes are more modest.

Living Space

When comparing the living space in Class A and Class C RVs, the differences in size, design, and layout significantly impact the overall comfort and functionality of each motorhome class. Class A RVs are known for their spacious interiors. These RVs often feature full-sized appliances, ample counter space, generous closet storage, and roomy bathrooms and kitchens, as well as separate sleeping areas, living areas, and dining areas. Class A RVs are basically apartments on wheels.

Class C motorhomes are much more compact. There is simply less living space. Everything is smaller. The kitchen and bathroom are more compact. There is no separate bedroom. There is less counter space and storage space.

In terms of sleeping accommodations, Class A RVs often boast private bedrooms with a large walkaround king or queen-sized bed. To compare, Class C RVs typically feature a cab-over bed. You need to climb a ladder to reach the bed in a class C. Both types of RVs also feature a convertible bed such as a sofa or dinette that transforms into a sleeping space when needed.

Another notable difference is the separation of living and dining areas in Class A RVs. There is usually a couch as well as a dining table and chairs. Class C motorhomes usually have a single living space that doubles as a dining area.

Most modern Class A RVs are equipped with multiple slide-outs, which can significantly expand the living space once campers arrive at their destination. Some Class C motorhomes also feature slide-outs while others do not. Without slide-outs, the available living space may be more constrained.

Inside of a class C motorhome

Due to the boxy design, class A motorhomes have more usable space inside than class Cs. On a class C motorhome, the motor and cab take up 3-5 feet of space in the front of the RV. On a class A, the front end is flat. The motor is usually under the cab or in the back. Less space is wasted. Thanks to this design, a 30 foot class A will feel much roomier than a 30 foot class C. It will have at least 3 extra feet of usable length inside. This is significant.

Ease of Driving and Maneuverability

Class C RVs are easier to drive than class A RVs. They are built on a van chassis. They drive just like a large van or moving truck. The interior of the cab is also familiar to many drivers. It has the same layout as a cargo van or pickup. The steering wheel, pedals, shifter, controls, etc. are all in the same place they usually are.

Maneuverability is another area where Class C RVs excel. Due to their shorter wheelbase, they have a smaller turning radius, making it easier to navigate tight parking lots, urban streets, campgrounds, and narrow forest roads. The compact size of Class C motorhomes makes them easier to handle.

Driving a Class A RV can be more challenging. There are a few reasons for this. First, they are far larger vehicles. This makes them a little more intimidating to drive. You have pay attention to where the back of the RV is going. It would be easy to cut a corner and run over a curb or clip a car when turning. You have to know your turning radius and wheel cut so you can turn safely. This makes turning more difficult.

In addition, the controls and driving position are often different from what drivers are accustomed to. This is because class A RVs are built on commercial truck chassis. The pedals in a Class A RV may be offset slightly. This is done to make room for the steering column. The steering wheel position is often different as well. Oftentimes, the steering wheel is more horizontal, like a bus instead of vertical, like a van. The overall feel of driving is more akin to operating a bus. This can take some getting used to. Particularly for those new to the RV lifestyle.

Maneuverability in Class A RVs is generally more limited due to their larger size and turning radius. They require more space to navigate. Additionally, the height of Class A RVs necessitates that drivers be vigilant for low bridges, overhanging branches, and other obstacles that may be encountered on the road.

When you drive a class A RV, you’ll also need to bring a tow vehicle so you don’t have to drive the RV everywhere you want to go once you reach your destination. Towing a vehicle makes the RV longer and even harder to drive. Many people also bring a tow vehicle with their class C but it is possible to do without.

This heightened awareness and the need for caution when driving a class A RV in certain areas can contribute to a more demanding driving experience compared to a Class C RV. Driving a large RV can be stressful. If you plan to switch drivers, you’ll want to make sure both drivers are comfortable and capable of driving whichever type of RV you choose. There is a learning curve to driving a big motorhome.


Class C RVs are easier to park than class A RVs due to their smaller size. They can fit into smaller parking lots. They also take up fewer parking spaces. This allows you to be a little more spontaneous. If you want to stop to eat at a restaurant or grab a coffee, you can usually find a place to park. You don’t have to stress too much about not being able to find parking.

Class A RVs can present more parking challenges due to their larger size. These motorhomes take up more parking spaces. They are also difficult to maneuver in smaller parking lots. There are some parking lots you simply can’t enter. You won’t fit. The sheer size of Class A RVs can make it a more daunting task to find suitable parking, especially in crowded or urban areas. You may experience some anxiety about where you’re going to park. This can be stressful. You’ll constantly worry about not being able to find a place to park.

It’s worth noting that both types of RVs, regardless of their size, can encounter parking difficulties. Neither Class A nor Class C motorhomes can fit into a standard parking space. They can’t fit in parking garages due to their height. While driving your RV must be prepared to search for appropriate parking areas that can accommodate the size and height.


Class A RVs, due to their larger size, typically provide more amenities than Class C RVs. The interior of a Class A RV is truly a home away from home. There are amenities that cater to all of your needs and comforts. 

The amenities of a class A RV often include a spacious full bathroom with a bathtub, a kitchen with full-size appliances, a large living area with a sofa and chairs, a separate dining area, and a private sleeping area with a premium mattress.

Many class A models also come with a laundry room with a washer and dryer as well as a dishwasher. Some large models have a half bath for guests. There are multiple slide-outs to extend the living area.

The fixtures and fittings are also more luxurious. Class A RVs may feature granite countertops, hardwood or tile flooring, leather seating, and other premium materials that elevate the overall RV experience. The fixtures are also higher-end. For example, there may be premium light fixtures, faucets, etc. The appliances are usually high-end and full-sized.

Entertainment systems in Class A RVs are often more advanced and comprehensive, with features such as surround sound, large-screen TVs, and Starlink for internet connectivity. Outdoor amenities may include a built-in outdoor kitchen, exterior entertainment centers, and even slide-out storage compartments for added convenience. Many models also come with a built-in generator to power all of the appliances and your electronic devices.

On the other hand, Class C RVs tend to be less luxurious in terms of amenities. While still providing a comfortable and enjoyable experience, these motorhomes may have fewer features due to their more compact size.

The bathrooms and kitchens in Class C motorhomes are generally smaller. There usually isn’t a bathtub or a dishwasher or a washer and dryer in a class C RV. Space and weight restrictions limit the inclusion of these appliances.

The fixtures and fittings may be more basic compared to those found in Class A motorhomes. You won’t find hardwood floors or marble countertops. Instead, you’ll find linoleum flooring and laminate countertops. There usually isn’t a built-in generator.

The entertainment systems are also more basic. There may be a TV and basic sound system but that’s about it. There usually isn’t any outdoor entertainment.

When comparing the amenities of Class A and Class C RVs, it’s important to consider the differences in luxury, space, and available features. Think about which amenities you’ll actually use and which you don’t need.

Sleeping Space

Class A and Class C RVs offer a range of different bed configurations. Class C RVs typically provide comfortable sleeping arrangements for 4 to 6 people. One of the most recognizable features of Class C RVs is the cab-over bed. This is a queen-sized bed that is situated above the cab. It is always set up and ready for use.

There are a couple of drawbacks to cab over beds. First, you have to climb a ladder to access the bed. This can be a challenge for older people and those with disabilities. It’s also hard to make the bed. You can’t walk around it. Headroom is also limited. Sometimes you can’t even sit up in the cab over bed.

Class C motorhomes also usually include a couch or dinette that converts into another bed. Usually, the convertible sleeping area is a full-sized or queen-sized bed. These sleeping areas need to be converted every night. Some models also offer fold-down or drop-down bunk beds, providing extra sleeping space for larger families or groups. In larger Class Cs, there may be a separate bedroom with a walk-around bed. This creates a more private sleeping area.

Class A RVs are known for their more spacious sleeping accommodations. These motorhomes typically feature a separate master bedroom with a queen or king-sized walk-around bed. This provides a comfortable and private sleeping environment. The bed is just like the bed you would use at home. It’s easy to get in and out of and to make.

Class A RVs often include a second large bed. This is usually a hide-a-bed. Sometimes this bed pulls down from the ceiling. There is usually a convertible dinette as well. Some models also have bunk beds. Most class A RVs can comfortably sleep 6 to 8 people. Some larger models can accommodate as many as 10.


The kitchens in Class A RVs are typically more spacious and well-equipped. They feature full-sized appliances such as a fridge, four-burner stove, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. There is usually a large sink and an abundance of counter space. These kitchens also offer plenty of cabinet storage for pots, pans, dry goods, and other essentials. This makes it easy and convenient to cook healthy and tasty meals wherever you may be.

The kitchens in Class C motorhomes are generally more compact. They often have smaller appliances and less space overall. These kitchens may be equipped with a mini-fridge, a two-burner stove, a smaller sink, and limited counter space. Microwave and dishwasher availability varies among Class C motorhome models, with some including these appliances and others not. Storage space for cooking utensils and food is also more limited in Class C motorhome kitchens, requiring campers to be more strategic with their packing and organization.

You can still cook all of your favorite meals in a class C motorhome. Meal preparation is a bit more challenging because the kitchen is smaller.


As for bathrooms, there are several key differences in terms of size, amenities, and overall luxury. In Class A RVs, the bathrooms are typically more spacious. There is a full bathroom with a separate toilet, sink, and shower area. Some luxury models may even include a bathtub.

In larger Class A RVs, it’s not uncommon to find two bathrooms. There may be one in the master bedroom for added privacy and another half bath next to the main living area for guests.

The bathrooms in Class A motorhomes often showcase more luxurious touches, such as premium fixtures and fittings, contributing to an upscale experience.

On the other hand, the bathrooms in Class C motorhomes tend to be smaller and more compact. They are still full baths with a shower, sink, and toilet. Bathtubs are less common in Class C motorhome bathrooms. There is also only one bathroom. These bathrooms may also be more basic in design, with simpler fixtures and fittings.

Slide Outs

A slide out is a section of an RV that extends outward, increasing the interior space and providing more room for various amenities and features. They are used to create a more spacious and comfortable living environment when the RV is parked. When the slide outs are extended, the inside of the RV looks and feels like a large room in a home.

Slide outs can be used to increase the size of the living area, kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom. Slide outs must be retracted when it’s time to hit the road. Most slide outs can be operated with an electronic switch on the wall.

Class A motorhomes with slide outs extended

In Class A RVs, slide outs are more prevalent and tend to be larger in size. Almost all modern Class A motorhomes come equipped with at least one slide out. Some models have two or three. Older class As may not have this feature.

The increased number and size of slide outs in Class A RVs contribute to the overall luxury and spaciousness of the motorhome. This makes class As a more comfortable option for full time living or larger groups of travelers.

Class C RVs, on the other hand, typically have fewer slide outs. There may only be one or two. The side outs are also smaller. Many class Cs don’t have slide outs at all. This means the interior space is much smaller.

Despite the advantages of slide outs, there are a few drawbacks to consider. Slide outs can add weight to the RV. Each slide out weighs 600-800 pounds. Slide outs also increase the risk of mechanical issues. Each slide out contains moving parts and a motor. They add complexity to the motorhome. Slide outs can also leak if they’re not properly sealed and maintained. Additionally, the added complexity of slide outs can result in higher maintenance costs. The purchase price of an RV with slide outs is also higher.

Storage Space

Class A RVs offer much more storage space than class C RVs. There is a large basement storage space located under the living space. This space can be accessed from hatches on the sides of the RV. These spacious compartments are ideal for storing bulky items such as camping gear, bicycles, firewood, outdoor furniture, and even portable generators.

Inside a Class A RV, you’ll find ample cabinetry and closet space for clothing, personal items, cleaning supplies, camping gear, and kitchen essentials. The larger fridge and kitchen cabinets also offer more food storage options.

To compare, Class C motorhomes typically have less storage space both inside and outside. Most models have a few exterior storage compartments. These compartments are not as expansive as those found in Class A RVs. You may only be able to fit a few camp chairs or some firewood.

Inside a Class C motorhome, storage options such as closets and cabinets are also more limited due to the smaller size of the interior. The fridge and kitchen storage may also be smaller. You won’t be able to bring quite as much food. You need to be more strategic with your packing and organization. It may be necessary to leave some stuff at home. Weight is also a consideration.

If you need space for storing large items like motorcycles, ATVs, a golf cart, jet skis, a side-by-side, snowmobiles, etc. you could opt for a toy hauler motorhome. These RVs have a built-in garage in the back. The rear wall folds down and turns into a ramp, allowing you to drive your toys into the motorhome. Toy haulers are available in both class A and super C designs. Class A models are typically larger. Keep in mind that the garage takes up a significant amount of interior space. For more info, check out this guide to toy haulers.

Motorhome Price

Both Class A and Class C motorhomes are available at a wide range of prices. Costs vary based on different levels of quality and luxury as well as size.

On average, Class A RVs are more expensive than Class Cs. Class A motorhomes start at around $65,000 for a base model. On average, a class A motor home costs around $150,000-$250,000. Luxury models can go for $1,000,000 or more.

Class C motorhomes are more affordable than class A models.

To compare, Class C motorhomes are generally more affordable. Prices start at around $50,000 for entry-level models. On average, a class C motorhome costs around $60,000-$100,000. Premium models can sell for $200,000+. On average, a class A motorhome costs around $15,000-$30,000 more than a comparable class C motorhome.

The higher price tag of Class A motorhomes can be attributed to several factors. First, these motorhomes are often constructed with more premium materials. For example, they may include marble countertops, custom cabinets, and hardwood floors. They often have higher-end fittings and fixtures including light fixtures, appliances, mattresses, faucets, etc. This all contributes to a more luxurious feel but adds to the cost. Additionally, Class A RVs are larger in size. This means they require more materials and labor for their construction. This further increases the overall cost.

On the other hand, the smaller size and more modest use of materials helps to keep the costs of class motorhomes down.

If you’re on a tight budget, one great way to save money is to buy used. Motorhomes depreciate pretty quickly. According to this interesting article, after 5 years, a class A motorhome will depreciate by around 36.6% while a class C motorhome will depreciate by around 34.7%. You can save tens of thousands of dollars by buying a model that is a few years old. You can also find older motorhomes that are still in good condition for less than $20,000. A new RV is significantly more expensive.

Of course, the initial purchase isn’t the only cost. When buying a motorhome, you may also want to consider the cost of fuel, maintenance, and insurance. This also adds to the cost of ownership. I’ll cover these costs in the next sections. It may also be worth considering depreciation if you plan to sell your motorhome at some point. You may also have to pay to store your RV while it’s not in use. These are large vehicles. The cost of ownership can add up quickly. You have to be prepared for this.

Fuel Economy

Fuel economy is an important factor to consider when purchasing an RV as it can greatly affect your travel expenses. Gas is expensive.

The average gas mileage for Class A RVs depends on whether it’s a diesel pusher or gas model. Class A Diesel pushers typically have better fuel efficiency, averaging between 8 and 12 miles per gallon (MPG). Gas-powered Class A RVs usually achieve between 6 and 10 MPG. They get really poor gas mileage.

Class C motorhomes offer better gas mileage than class A models

On the other hand, Class C motorhomes generally offer better fuel economy than their Class A counterparts. These motorhomes average between 10 and 15 MPG. Class C motorhomes are more fuel-efficient because they are smaller and lighter. It takes less energy to move less mass around.

To illustrate the potential savings from driving a more fuel-efficient Class C RV, let’s consider a hypothetical road trip of 2,000 miles. If a Class A gas RV averages 7 MPG, it would require approximately 286 gallons of fuel for the trip. In contrast, a Class C RV averaging 12 MPG would only require about 167 gallons of fuel. Assuming a fuel cost of $3.50 per gallon, the Class C RV owner would save roughly $417 on this trip alone.

How much this fuel savings matters depends on how many miles you drive. This fuel savings can add up significantly over time, especially for those who travel frequently or embark on long road trips. Over the course of several years, the fuel cost savings from choosing a Class C motorhome could amount to thousands of dollars. With the lower cost of fuel, you could travel further or camp more often.

Driving a more fuel efficient RV is also more environmentally friendly. You’ll put less carbon into the atmosphere when you burn less fuel.


Class C motorhomes are easier and cheaper to maintain than class A motorhomes. The main reason is that they are built on a standard van or pickup truck chassis. Pretty much every mechanic has the knowledge and tools to work on these vehicles. If you encounter any issues or need repairs during a camping trip, you can almost always find a mechanic to assist you, even in smaller towns. Labor is cheaper because you don’t need a specialized RV mechanic.

Additionally, parts availability for Class C motorhomes is better. Parts are cheaper as well. This is because there are millions of these vehicles on the road. The cargo vans that are used to build class C motorhomes are commonly used for commercial purposes. They’re extremely common. The widespread availability of parts can result in lower maintenance costs and shorter downtimes. You usually don’t need to wait for shipping. Most parts will be available locally. Parts and labor are more affordable.

On the other hand, Class A RVs can be more challenging to maintain due to their unique and specialized nature. These motorhomes often require specialized RV or truck mechanics who have experience working with larger vehicles and their specific systems. This is especially true if you drive a class A diesel pusher. Not every mechanic knows how to work on large diesel engines. Finding a suitable mechanic for a Class A RV might be more difficult. Particularly in remote or rural areas. Parts will be more expensive. Labor costs will be higher as well.

In addition, sourcing parts for Class A motorhomes can also be more challenging. Class As are built with heavy-duty commercial truck chassis. There are fewer of these vehicles on the road compared to the vans that are used to build Class C motorhomes. You may have to have some parts shipped in. Parts are also more expensive because fewer are produced. This can lead to longer wait times for repairs and potentially higher maintenance costs.

The choice between a diesel or gas engine RV is also an important consideration when it comes to maintenance. Generally, diesel engines have longer maintenance intervals. The maintenance is usually more expensive. Gas engines require more frequent maintenance but the maintenance is cheaper. There are trade-offs.

Maintenance is an important consideration when choosing an RV. It can play a role in your overall experience and cost of ownership. Regardless of the type of RV you choose, it will require regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly and reliably.


Insurance is another cost of ownership to consider. It’s usually slightly more expensive to insure a class A motorhome than a class C.

This is because class A motorhomes are more expensive for the insurance company to replace if there is damage. Class A motorhomes are also a bit more likely to get broken into because they are considered higher-end and more luxurious. Thieves know this.

Your insurance premiums will be higher when you drive a class A motorhome. This isn’t a major expense but it may be worth considering.

Campsite Options

You’ll have more campsite options available when you camp in a class C RV. This is because class Cs tend to be smaller. They can fit in more campsites.

Class A RVs are too large for some campgrounds. Many state parks, national parks, national forests, and even private campgrounds can’t accommodate a 45 foot motorhome. The roads may be too narrow. There may be overhanging branches. Sometimes the camping spaces themselves aren’t big enough. This limits your options. There are some places you won’t be able to camp when you drive a large class A RV.

Before you buy a motorhome, it’s a good idea to check for size limitations in your favorite campgrounds. Generally, motorhomes that are less than 28 feet long will fit in most campsites. Motorhomes that are longer than 28 feet may not fit in some spaces.

Towing Capacity

Towing capacity is an important factor to consider for those who wish to bring along a tow vehicle, a boat, a horse trailer, or cargo trailer during their travels. Generally, a Class A RV will have a higher towing capacity than a Class C model.

Class A diesel pusher motorhomes typically offer the highest towing capacity. Most class A diesel models have the ability to tow 10,000-15,000 pounds. This makes it possible to tow larger vehicles, boats, and trailers. On the other hand, Class A gas motorhomes have a slightly lower towing capacity, usually ranging between 5,000 and 8,000 pounds. This is still ample capability for bringing a tow vehicle or a smaller boat.

A class C RV towing a cargo trailer

When it comes to Class C motorhomes, the towing capacity is generally lower than that of Class A RVs. The average towing capacity for a Class C RV ranges from 3,500 to 7,500 pounds. This is sufficient for towing smaller vehicles, boats, and lightweight cargo trailers.

If you need to tow a heavier load, you may consider a super C RV. These are class C models that are built on a diesel commercial truck chassis. This provides them with more power and a higher towing capacity than the standard class C motorhome. In fact, super C RVS have the highest towing capacity of any motorhome.

Most super C RVs ares capable of towing 10,000-20,000 pounds. Some specialty models can tow up to 40,000 pounds. They are extremely heavy-duty RVs. They’re basically semi-trucks with campers on the back. This might be useful if you need to tow a large cargo trailer or a large boat.

When choosing Class A and Class C RVs, it’s important to consider the differences in power and capability. The specific towing capacity of a Class C motorhome may vary depending on factors such as the engine, chassis, and model.

If you plan to tow, it’s also important to consider the total length of your RV and trailer. In most jurisdictions, the maximum length of your RV plus trailer is 70 or 75 feet. If you drive a 45 foot class A motorhome, your trailer can be a maximum of 25-30 feet in length to remain legal. If you need to tow a 40 foot trailer, you might need to go with a shorter class of RV to stay legal.

Holding Tanks

Class A RVs come with larger holding tanks than their Class C counterparts. The fresh water, gray water, and black water tanks are all larger. The gas tank is usually larger on class A RVs as well.

Having larger holding tanks is convenient during longer trips. The increased capacity of these tanks in Class A RVs allows for a longer duration between refilling water supplies or emptying waste tanks. This makes them ideal for boondocking or longer stays in remote locations.

Moreover, Class A RVs usually have larger gas tanks. This can significantly improve the vehicle’s range, allowing for extended travel without the need for frequent refueling stops. This is nice because it can be a hassle to pull into a gas station with a large RV. Particularly when it’s crowded. Some gas stations aren’t set up for large vehicles.

Class C motorhomes have less space for holding tanks due to their smaller size. The fresh water, gray water, and black water tanks are all smaller. When you drive a class C motorhome, you may have to stop more frequently to refill water or empty waste tanks. Additionally, the gas tanks in Class C motorhomes are typically smaller, which may limit the travel range and require more frequent refueling.

Another notable difference between Class A and Class C motorhome holding tanks is the level of protection. Class A tanks are often better protected from external elements, whereas Class C tanks can be more exposed to the weather. This exposure can make Class C tanks more susceptible to freezing, especially in colder climates. This isn’t an issue on all class Cs but it is something to consider. If you plan to camp regularly during the winter, you’ll want to make sure the tanks are designed for winter camping.


Class A motorhomes have larger windows than class C. The front window is a massive panel of vertical glass. This gives you a spectacular panoramic view of the world while you’re driving. Oftentimes, the side windows in the cab are larger as well.

Having larger windows also lets in more light while you’re parked. This makes it feel a bit more roomy inside. Of course, it’s also nice for enjoying the views of camp.

On a class C, the windshield is a standard size. The cab over can also block your view on some models. It can make it difficult to see traffic lights in some cases. One benefit of the cab over is that it can create some shade to reduce glare when you’re driving into the sun.

Safety is an important consideration when choosing an RV. In general, Class C motorhomes are safer than class A models. Class A RVs are the least safe type of RV during an accident.

Class C RVs have more safety features than their Class A counterparts. This is because Class C models are built on van chassis that already come with lots of safety features built-in.

For example, Class C motorhomes feature crumple zones and airbags. These safety features are an inherent part of the van chassis design. Remember, these RVs start out as regular cargo vans. The crumple zones and airbags absorb impact and minimize injury during a collision.

Another significant safety advantage of Class C motorhomes is the inclusion of seatbelts in the living area. While traveling, passengers in Class C motorhomes can securely buckle themselves in. This reduces the risk of injury during sudden stops or accidents. In addition, these vehicles are also crash-tested by the manufacturer.

Class A RVs typically lack these safety features. There are usually no airbags because they are not legally required for RVs in most jurisdictions. Class A RVs also do not have the same structural design found in Class C motorhomes. They don’t have crumple zones engineered into the design. They are just large aluminum or fiberglass shells. These vehicles are not crash-tested. They don’t hold up well during an accident.

Furthermore, the driver of a Class A RV sits directly in front of a large vertical windshield. This could pose additional safety concerns. Again, most Class A models do not have airbags, leaving the driver more exposed in the event of an accident. There are exceptions. Some class A RVs do come with airbags.

Class A RVs often lack seatbelts in the living space. This could potentially increase the risk of injury in the event of a quick stop or accident. There are exceptions. Some class A RVs come with seatbelts in the living area.

Class C motorhomes also perform better in windy conditions. This is because they have a lower center of gravity. They can handle a stronger crosswind without tipping over.

Class A motorhomes are much more top-heavy. This makes them more likely to tip in windy conditions. This is important to consider if you live in a particularly windy area.

If it gets too windy, it’s best to pull over. RVs are known to tip in the wind. For more info, check out this article about driving an RV in the wind.

As you consider your RV options, keep these safety differences in mind. Keeping yourself and your family and friends safe is a top priority.

Full-Time RV Living

When it comes to full-time living, Class A RVs are often the better choice due to their larger size and more spacious interiors. These motorhomes offer ample living space, akin to living in a small apartment, with the added benefit of mobility. The full bathroom, well-equipped kitchen, and private bedroom in Class A RVs make daily living convenient and enjoyable. It won’t feel too cramped. Everyone can have their own space. You can spread out and move around.

Additionally, Class A RVs offer much more storage space than class C RVs, both inside and outside. This is crucial for those without a permanent residence. You can keep most of your stuff with you. The abundance of storage also allows you to keep all your belongings organized and accessible. There is usually a greater payload capacity, allowing you to carry more stuff without going overweight.

RVs in a campground

While Class C motorhomes can also be used for full-time living, their smaller size may present certain challenges. The more limited living space can feel cramped. The bathroom is smaller and more basic. The RV may also lack some modern conveniences like a dishwasher and washer and dryer.

The location of the bed can also be a challenge. Climbing up into the cab over bed may become tiresome over time. Particularly if you need to get up in the night to go to the bathroom. The person sleeping toward the front will have to crawl over the other person to get out of bed. You usually can’t sit up in bed because there isn’t enough headroom. The cab over bed lacks the convenience of a separate bedroom found in Class A motorhomes.

Getting Around Your Destination

Many RVers bring a tow vehicle or “toad.” A tow vehicle is a smaller vehicle that is towed behind the RV. RVers can leave their big motorhome parked at a campground or RV park and use the tow vehicle to explore the area or run errands.

Popular tow vehicles include compact cars like the Honda CR-V and the Jeep Wrangler as well as pickups like the Ford F-150. It’s important to note that not all cars can be used as tow vehicles. Some vehicles’ transmissions can’t handle it. You need to choose a vehicle that is designed to be towed. For more info, check out this great guide to tow vehicles.

For those traveling with Class A RVs, using a tow vehicle is often essential. These larger motorhomes can be inconvenient and impractical to drive around for everyday activities. Their size makes navigating narrow roads, tight parking lots, and urban areas quite challenging. This is why many Class A RV owners choose to tow a smaller vehicle for their daily excursions.

On the other hand, Class C RVs are generally smaller and more manageable. Some RVers choose to forgo using a tow vehicle. Instead, they just drive the RV everywhere they want to go. While it still depends on the specific size and model of the Class C motorhome, many find that Class C models small enough to drive around for errands and sightseeing. Some Class C motorhome owners still opt to use a tow vehicle, as it provides even greater flexibility and convenience when exploring new destinations.

There are a few drawbacks to bringing a tow vehicle. You’ll burn additional fuel due to the extra weight. You’ll have to maintain the tow vehicle. It’s a whole extra engine to maintain. You’ll also need to learn towing techniques. Towing also puts additional wear and tear on the vehicle. Flat towing an older vehicle with a mechanical odometer will also put miles on it. Newer vehicles have electronic odometers that don’t add miles if the transmission is not turning. Of course, you’ll also have to buy a second vehicle for towing if you don’t already own one.

For those who prefer not to tow a vehicle, there are alternatives. You could carry a motorcycle, scooter, or bicycle on a rack on the back of the RV. These alternatives provide more mobility and flexibility without the need for a separate tow vehicle. You could also use a toy hauler and carry a small car inside. It would have to be a lightweight and compact car like a SmartCar. If you drive a small class A or C RV, you could simply do without a tow vehicle.

Class C motorhomes are generally more versatile than class A models due to their smaller size. Their compact dimensions allow these RVs to fit into smaller campgrounds with length restrictions. Class C motorhomes are also better-suited for boondocking or free camping. Their smaller size often makes finding suitable spots easier. This provides you with a greater variety of camping options to choose from, improving versatility.

When traveling with a Class C RV, stopping at restaurants, stores, gas stations, or cafes also becomes more convenient due to the smaller size. Parking in these locations is typically easier with a smaller vehicle. You can park at a wider range of businesses. This also improves versatility.

In addition, urban exploration is also more manageable with a Class C motorhomes. Navigating tight city streets and parking in urban areas is less challenging with smaller RVs. You don’t have to worry as much about height or weight restrictions. Being able to drive in the city increases versatility.

Class A RVs can be less versatile due to their larger size. Their size can be limiting when it comes to accessing certain campgrounds, campsites, and parking lots. Some campgrounds have length restrictions, which may exclude larger Class A motorhomes.

Additionally, their size can make parking in urban areas and tight spaces more difficult, sometimes requiring you to find alternative parking options or limiting the places you can visit. You simply can’t park at some restaurants, shops, gas stations, etc.

Class As can also be too tall to drive certain routes. If there is a low overpass, you might have to find an alternative route. In some cases, these RVs might be too heavy for certain roads or bridges. This is rare but the weight can limit where you can drive in some situations. All of this makes class A motorhomes a bit less versatile.

One area where class A RVs are more versatile is towing. They generally have a higher towing capacity. This allows you to tow a wider range of trailers. Class As can also be used to live in full-time. They can double as a vacation home.

My Choice: Class A Vs Class C RVs

For my style of travel, a class C motorhome is the better choice. I enjoy traveling long distances and boondocking in free campsites. I also enjoy staying in cities once in a while. It’s much easier to find a place to camp with a smaller class C motorhome.

I also appreciate the lower cost of ownership. I can afford to travel more often thanks to the better gas mileage and lower maintenance cost. Also, I often camp alone. I don’t need the extra space of a class A.

There are a few things I don’t like about class Cs. First is the sleeping space. The cab over bed is a nice space saver but it is a hassle having to climb a ladder to get in and out of bed. Particularly if I have to get up in the night to use the bathroom. The headspace in the cab over is also pretty low. I can’t really sit up straight in bed. It would also be nice to have a little more storage space for longer trips. The bathrooms are also a little cramped in these RVs.

If I were to travel with my family often or live full-time in an RV, I would definitely upgrade to a class A model. The extra space would be nice to have. Particularly the storage space. Not having to climb a ladder to get into bed would also be nice. I would also appreciate having full-sized appliances and a larger bathroom. One day, I will probably upgrade to a class A model.

Other RV Options

Class A and C RVs aren’t your only options. In this section, I’ll outline a number of other RV classes to choose from. Also, check out my guide to the different types of RVs for even more options to consider.

Class B RV

A class B RV (campervan)

A Class B RV is a van that has been converted into a compact motorhome. These motorhomes start as standard cargo vans. They are modified to include amenities. Class B RVs are also known as camper vans or conversion vans.

Most models measure 18-24 feet in length. Popular chassis options include the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Ford Transit, and Ram ProMaster.

Class B RVs are smaller than Class A and Class C motorhomes, providing greater maneuverability and fuel efficiency. Class B RVs are also known as campervans or conversion vans.

Amenities in Class B RVs are designed to maximize space utilization. Most models come with a compact kitchen with a small fridge, sink, and stove. The seeping space usually consists of a bed that converts into a sofa or dinette. Larger models have a fixed bed. Seating options often double as dining areas. Some Class B RVs feature a small, wet bath with a combined toilet and shower. Others may not have a bathroom at all. There are usually some small cabinets and cubbies for storage.

Popular Class B manufacturers include Winnebago, Roadtrek, and Pleasure-Way. Custom class B RVs are also available. Many enthusiasts choose to create their own DIY Class B RVs, converting standard cargo vans into customized living spaces. This is a popular choice among van lifers and digital nomads.

The main benefit class B RVs offer over larger class A and class Cs is that they are easy to drive. They handle like any other van. You can park in a standard sized parking space. This allows you to drive and park anywhere you can drive a car.

The main drawback is the small size. The limited interior space can be challenging. Some models aren’t even tall enough to stand up in. Class B RVs are best for solo travelers or couples. These RVs are also expensive.

For more in-depth info, check out my guide to class B Vs class C RVs.

Super C RV

A Super C RV is a larger and more powerful variant of the traditional Class C motorhome. They are more luxuries, amenities, and living space than standard class Cs. Super C RVs also offer more power and greater towing capabilities. They have the same general design with the distinctive bed over cab.

The main difference between a Super C RV and a conventional Class C RV is the type of chassis used. Super C RVs utilize a heavy-duty truck chassis instead of van chassis. They are often based on a commercial truck platform, such as a Freightliner or Ford. The front looks like a semi truck. On smaller models, a heavy-duty pickup truck chassis is used instead. These trucks offer greater towing capacity.

Smaller Super C RVs can tow 10,000-15,000 pounds. That’s about the same as a class A diesel pusher. Larger Super C RVs that are built on a class 8 semi chassis are capable of towing loads of up to 40,000 pounds. These RVs can pull large boats, horse trailers, and heavy equipment with ease.

Super C RVs are generally larger traditional Class C motorhomes. Lengths range from 35 to 40 feet. This larger size offers more living space and amenities, similar to a class A RV.

Super C RVs are also usually powered by diesel engines rather than the gas engines that standard class Cs use. Diesel offers enhanced performance and fuel efficiency. The diesel engines in Super C RVs provide more power and torque for a higher towing capacity. This increased towing capacity allows travelers to haul larger loads. It also makes climbing mountains a breeze.

Super C RVs also tend to be a bit more luxurious than standard class Cs. They may come with premium fittings and fixtures, like class As. There may also be some additional amenities such as a dishwasher and washer and dryer. You’ll also find a more spacious bathroom and kitchen. Some models have a private sleeping space on the main floor. Most models come with automatic leveling and a built-in generator.

There are some drawbacks to consider when choosing a Super C RV. First, they’re very expensive RVs. The increased size may also limit access to certain campgrounds or parking areas. Maneuverability can also be a challenge. These are big RVs. These RVs also sit up high. You might have to climb some stairs to get in and out.

Class B+ RV

A class B+ RV

A Class B+ RV is a cross between a class B and a class C RV. These motorhomes offer a larger living space and more features than a traditional class B without the cab over bed found in class Cs.

Class B+ RVs are built on a cutaway van chassis, just like regular class Cs. In other words, they are built on a bare frame with a cab. An RV box is constructed onto the frame. The box is usually made from fiberglass or aluminum.

This design allows class B+ motorhomes to be around a foot wider than traditional class B RVs. They may also be taller. Most are tall enough to stand up inside. They may also be a couple of feet longer. Class B+ RVs offer more interior space than a standard Class B while maintaining a smaller and more maneuverable footprint than a Class C.

Class B+ RVs provide extra living space as well as extra room for amenities such as a full kitchen and wet bath as well as additional storage. Most models come with a convertible bed. Sometimes the bed drops down from the ceiling.

Class B+ RVs do feature a cab-over area. This space isn’t large enough for a bed like you would find on a class C RV. Instead, it’s used for the entertainment system or storage.

The larger size and additional amenities, combined with their more compact profile and ease of driving, make Class B+ RVs an excellent choice for travelers who desire a balance between luxury and maneuverability. They are great for solo travelers or couples.

Class B+ RVs aren’t their own RV category. They are basically just smaller versions of class C motorhomes. The term “Class B+” is really just a marketing term.

Tip: Rent an RV Before You Buy

Before buying an RV, consider renting a couple of different models first. By renting both Class A and Class Cs, you can personally experience the differences between them and determine which one suits your preferences and needs.

When you rent an RV, you get hands-on experience with various amenities, layouts, and driving characteristics. You might find that you don’t like the cab over sleeping space of a class C or you might find that you don’t like driving a large class A. Maybe you find that a class C just doesn’t have enough space.

Spending time in rented RVs also helps you understand your must-haves and deal-breakers, ensuring you choose the right RV for your lifestyle. Maybe you find that you need an additional sleeping area or you really need a washer and dryer.

In addition, renting provides an opportunity to familiarize yourself with essential RV maintenance tasks without the long-term commitment. This can save you from buying an unsuitable motorhome. You may even find out that owning an RV simply isn’t for you. Maybe you prefer tent camping or staying in hotels.

Renting RVs is costly. Average rental costs can vary depending on the type, size, and location. Expect to pay between $150 to $300 per night for a Class C and $250 to $450 per night for a Class A. In my opinion, it’s worth the investment to rent each for a couple of days. You’ll get a nice little vacation out of the experience.

Final Thoughts About Class A Vs Class C Motorhomes

The decision between a Class A and Class C RV ultimately depends on your individual needs and preferences. When choosing an RV, you’ll want to consider where you plan to camp, who you camp with, how long you plan to camp, and your budget. When comparing Class A and Class C RVs, consider factors such as size, amenities, maneuverability, layout, maintenance, and cost. Each of these factors can affect your decision.

By taking the time to carefully evaluate your options and assess which features are most important to you and which aren’t, you’ll be well on your way to selecting the perfect RV for your adventures on the open road. Whichever type of RV you choose, I hope this guide has helped you in making your decision.
