Class B Typical Features

Class B motor homes are essentially vans that have been converted into a home on wheels. They’re perfect for the outdoor explorer who is a minimalist in their packing and traveling needs. If you enjoy spending time with Mother Nature, a Class B motor home could be your perfect RV.

You’ll typically find a compact interior layout that gives you sleeping space, a galley kitchen, and frequently a wet bath (a modified bathroom). Many Class B motor homes offer “outdoorsy” features like a bike rack, roof rack, and other similar features so you can make the most of your time in the great outdoors. One of our popular Class B motor homes is our Winnebago Solis for sale.

Most Class B motor homes are within the 18 to 21 foot range in overall length. Many families who drive a Class B motor home love it for its compact design, ease of maneuverability, and exceptional fuel economy. You can check out all of our Class B motor homes for sale here.

Class C Typical Features

A Class C motor home will offer you a bit more wiggle room on its overall features. Class C units typically run between 22 and 33 feet long, and give a larger kitchen, interior bath, and more sleeping accommodations – which is helpful for families that are a bit bigger.

The Class C motor home features the iconic “bunk over cab” bed. The cut-away chassis gives you a van-type driving structure with the motor home built behind it. And you’ll often find more than one chassis to choose from in a manufacturer’s line. For instance, this particular Coachmen Freelander for sale features a Ford 350.

Other Freelanders in the line are built on a Chevy 4500. It’s up to you what you prefer driving!
