When renting an RV is what the different types are? Generally speaking, there are two types of RVs: drivable and towable. Each is discussed in detail below.

Types of RVs

Drivable (Motorhomes)

The first type of RV is drivable, more commonly known as motorhomes. There are three different classes of drivable RVs:  Class A, B, and C.

Class A

A Class A motorhome is the largest drivable RV. They resemble a bus and are typically 30 to 40 feet long. They are also considered top-of-the-line amongst RVs and typically feature full bathrooms, entertainment centers, and spacious living areas.

Class B

Class B motorhomes are more commonly known as van campers because these RVs are built on a van chassis with a raised roof. Class Bs are typically the smallest drivable RV but still have a bathroom, convertible bed, and basic kitchen necessities.
