Types of RVs for Sale at O’Connor RV

motorhome-class-a-b-c-rv-type

Motorhome

A motorhome is the entire package - vehicle and living quarters - all wrapped up into one unit. The size of these RVs vary widely depending on their class: Class A units are large, bus-like motorhomes, Class B units are converted vans that are best suited for 1-2 people, and Class C units land somewhere in the middle, often sleeping 2-4 comfortably. These units are handy because they don’t require a pickup truck for towing, and many folks who plan to spend a long time on the road prefer to travel in a motorhome.

  Pros

pointWide range of styles and prices

pointDriving and living areas are connected for on-the-go convenience

pointSingle-unit design means no towing vehicle necessary

xlr-hyperlite-forest-river-travel-trailer

Travel Trailer

This is the most common type of RV, and comes in such a massive range of styles, layouts and sizes that there is truly a model for everyone. Whether you go for a large & luxurious unit, a lightweight trailer or something in the middle, you’ll need to tow it with a hitch on the bumper of your truck or SUV. It’s important to know your vehicle’s maximum towing capacity, and look for travel trailers that fit within those specifications. You can expect the majority of travel trailers to have plenty of comfortable amenities, including sleeping quarters, a kitchen, toilet, heating and cooling, and storage space.

  Pros

pointSizes, layouts and weights are virtually limitless

pointLarger trailers can be parked at campsites for long term use

pointOnboard amenities make travel trailers comfortable living spaces

FLAGSTAFF-HARD-SIDE-POP-UP-tent-camper

Pop-Up/Tent Camper

These types of campers typically combine a smaller travel trailer with pop-up sections that provide additional space (often sleeping quarters). One of the key benefits of this type of camper is that it can be quite compact and lightweight, making it easy to tow and park, without compromising on space once you open your pop-ups. Many folks enjoy sleeping in the pop-up areas because they offer a tent-like feel that mimics traditional camping.

  Pros

pointLightweight and compact design can be pulled by a variety of vehicles

pointPop-ups offer additional sleeping quarters for larger groups/families

pointTypically lower cost to maintain and have a fun “camping” vibe

Truck Camper

Truck campers are easily recognizable for their upper portion that sits on top of a pickup truck bed. This type of unit essentially turns your truck into its own mobile home, and can offer comfortable living and sleeping areas for 1-3 people despite their relatively low profile. Because truck campers are so easy to transport, you can take the road less travelled and set up camp virtually anywhere that your truck can park.

  Pros

pointLightweight and low profile design is easy to transport

pointCan get more places than larger trailers or motorhomes

Sandpiper-fifth-wheel-forest-river

Fifth Wheel

Another unique unit, fifth wheels are recognizable by their upper area that juts over a truck bed and large attached trailer. These RVs need to be connected to a pickup truck using a special hitch, called a gooseneck, that sits in the truck bed instead of the bumper, which makes fifth wheel RVs easy to tow, maneuver and park. Although they require a relatively heavy-duty pickup with a long truck bed, fifth wheels are easy to handle on the road, and offer tons of interior space which makes them ideal for large families.

  Pros

pointTypically the most spacious of all RVs

pointGooseneck hitch provides easy maneuverability and secure towing

pointCan provide a very “homey” feel inside
