Introduction to Motorhomes
If you are reading this article, you have probably already heard of the term Recreational Vehicle, a rather broad classification which includes travel trailers, truck campers, camper vans, and motorhomes—types that differ amongst themselves in features, size, and accommodations. In order to better understand and appreciate Coachmen Concord’s RV, we will first have to delve deeper into what a motorhome really is.
A motorhome is basically a portable home, a vehicle that combines the living space and many of the assorted accommodations of a house with the mobility of a truck. Used primarily for excursions during vacation time or even full-time by those whose business compels them to lead a highly mobile life, a motorhome is a sound investment if one can support such a lifestyle.
The laws governing them differ state by state. They are generally subject to the same laws as other automobiles, but may have additional laws specific to them.
The Three Motorhome Types
There are three distinct motorhome types called Class A, Class B, and Class C motorhomes. Their general description follows:
- Class A Motorhome: They are built using a very strong, heavy-duty frame. For quality and luxury, they are the way to go as they have plenty of storage space and a roomy interior that resembles home.
- Class B Motorhome: They are the least expensive of the three types and also the smallest. Naturally, they have the best fuel economy and are the easiest to drive. They are better suited for those who would prefer an economical purchase rather than maximum quality, as they are generally inferior in the accommodations they provide compared to the other two types. For example, less storage space or a comparably smaller living room.
- Class C Motorhome: They are basically a compromise between the Class A and the Class B type. The included amenities differ depending on the particular model, but generally these include a kitchen, a bathroom and a shower, a lounge area, and sleeping accommodation for up to eight people.
