What is the difference between Class A and Class C motorhomes?

Both are built on a motorized chassis, but the Class C chassis is a cutaway chassis; that is, the cab portion is installed by the chassis manufacturer.

What is the easiest RV to drive?

Class B RVs are generally considered the easiest to drive. Also called camper vans, these RVs are a similar size to a van or large SUV with built in kitchen and bathroom features. They range from 17 to 23 feet long, 7 feet wide and anywhere from 9 to 11 feet high. Class B RVs usually don't have issues with height clearances. Driving a Class B RV makes it more comfortable for individuals transitioning from regular vehicles since the length is similar to pickup trucks. They also offer improved maneuverability, making it easier to navigate through narrow streets, parking lots, and campgrounds. Additionally, Class B RVs often have better fuel efficiency and offer more convenient parking options compared to larger motorhomes.

When it comes to towing an RV, what are the most important terms to understand?

Many people focus on the dry weight of the trailer, but to be safe, your tow vehicle should be equipped to handle the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of the trailer you intend to tow.

What is the difference between travel trailers vs. fifth wheels?

A travel trailer is designed to be towed by a vehicle that has a ball hitch located below the bumper of the tow vehicle. A fifth wheel is designed to be towed with a hitch that is mounted in the bed of the truck, either directly above or forward of its rear axle.
