What Type of RV is Best For a Family?

What Type of RV is Best For a Family

There are several types of RV's and each offers their own advantages and disadvantages.  However, for the average family of four, certain RVs are better choices than others.

The best options would probably include Class A motorhomes, Class C motorhomes, Fifth Wheels, and Travel Trailers. This list will describe some of the advantages and disadvantages of each of these types to make it easier when choosing the right RV for you.

Let’s start with the Class A motorhome. These are the largest, the most luxurious, and also offer the most amenities from the types of RVs on this list. However, they are also the most expensive. Another important consideration is that they can be hard to maneuver on the road. You would probably want to tow a small car with you in case you want to leave the campground to check out other nearby attractions.

The Fifth Wheel generally offers the second most space and amenities of the RVs on this list, depending on which model you are looking at. They can also be pretty expensive compared to the others, however. They generally require a large truck with a fifth wheel hitch to tow. These are easier to maneuver than the similar Travel Trailer because of how they are hitched to the truck, and thus are more stable and easier to back up. This type allows you the option of leaving it at the campsite and using the truck to explore other nearby attractions.

Travel Trailers are similar to Fifth Wheels, but are smaller and lighter. Because of this they can be towed by trucks, SUVs, and even most full sized sedans. Although they are smaller, they still have a good amount of space and can accommodate up to four people. Generally, they are the least expensive option on this list. They do however take more skill to tow compared to the fifth wheel and are less stable on the road.

One final RV type that is good for families is the Class C motorhome. They are cheaper than Class A while still offering a good amount of space and amenities. They are also easier to drive than the Class A option. This is a better option for frequent travelers and shorter trips.

All in all, RV'ing in general is an awesome way to share time with your family! No matter which of these styles you choose, you can look forward to creating new memories with the people you love.
