How Many Types of Campers and RVs Are There?
Whether you’re new to recreational vehicles (RVs) or looking to upgrade your current model, it’s a good idea to know all the latest options. When browsing through RV types, you may have wondered while scrolling, “Are there six types of RVs…seven…nine…more? Which ones should I be looking at?”
Our team at Jayco is full of RV experts, and to aid your research, we put together this handy list of RVs we have found to be popular, from the most durable campers to the most spacious motorhome.

6 Types of RVs and Campers
When purchasing an RV, you must consider the motorhome vs towable types. Motorhomes are drivable RVs, while other types require an additional vehicle to tow them. It is also important to know the answer to “How many classes of RV are there?” as motorhomes are divided into classes—three to be exact. Let’s explore the motorhome classes and towable types in the following list.
Class B Motorhomes
Class B motorhomes are a much more condensed version of a drivable RV. This type of motorhome is perfect for traveling out into nature and driving through highly trafficked areas. Consider Jayco’s 2022 Swift, which includes a kitchen, sofa (with an extended bed), wet bath, refrigerator, pantry, TV, overhead cabinets, and two additional seating areas.
