What Are the Most Popular Small RVs?

Everyone’s RV needs and wants are different and going through every make and model can be a little overwhelming. When it comes to RV travel and recreational vehicles in general, there are all different types and sizes to consider. 

For example, maybe you are a seasoned RV veteran looking to add to your fleet, or maybe you’re new to the RV lifestyle and are looking for the best RV for families. One person may need a motorhome whereas someone else might be content with a smaller towable camper. 

Maybe you are finally an empty nester and you want that classic road trip experience. Or maybe you are a young couple eager to travel. You know, that, “let’s get a poster with all the national parks on it and cross them off one by one as we visit them,” kind of travel.  We are talking about RV travel. If that sounds like you, a smaller RV might be better than a giant 40+ foot motorhome.

Either way, at Jayco we believe that no matter your desires, the quality of your experience should remain consistent. We have the models and industry knowledge to help you make an informed decision. In this blog in particular, we are going to look at the most popular small RVs and what makes them so great.  


What Is the Smallest RV Sold?

While it’s tough to say because RV size varies a lot (even within the same type and category) the short answer is a pop-up camper, followed by either a travel trailer or a class B motorhome. If that answer doesn’t make a lot of sense to you, don’t worry… we are going to contextualize it. Let’s break it down by size (in order of biggest to smallest).

It’s worth noting that at Jayco we don’t offer Pop-Up campers.

While the size of an RV or motorhome can vary within its own class, if your goal is to find the smallest Jayco floorplans possible while still packing in the features you care about, you are probably looking for a class B (which is the smallest drivable RV) or travel trailer. 


What Is the Most Popular Small RV?

At Jayco, we have found that small RV popularity changes over time. With that in mind though, there are several key characteristics that popular small RVs generally always have in common. One of the most sought after traits an RV can have is reliability. After all, an RV is a big investment and you should be able to trust it to run smoothly for a while.

What is the Most Reliable Small Motorhome and Towable? 

With any Jayco Model, reliability is at the forefront. In fact, we are so confident in the reliability of our RVs that they even come with extensive warranties. Not to mention every towable comes standard with name brand quality tires. Here are a couple of models you might want to consider:

 Outside of reliability of course, RV popularity often comes down to floor plans and amenities. How many people do you want to fit comfortably? Do you need a bathroom? These are just some of the considerations you might have to take into account when looking at motor homes and towables. 

What is the Smallest Class B RV with a Bathroom? 

Our line of 2022 Swift, Swift Li and Terrain all come standard with a bathroom and are 20 feet long. Similarly, many of our travel trailers also come with bathrooms as a standard feature. 

Finally, on top of floor plans and reliability, many customers have concerns about the driveability of their RV.

What is the Easiest Small RV to Drive?

Truthfully, most of what we sell at Jayco is easy to drive. Our small RVs are no different, with our Class B motorhomes offering smooth handling and easy maneuvering. Similarly, if you are attaching a towable travel trailer, the lightweight and sturdy design makes them easy to accommodate as you embark on your journey.
