American Motorhomes

Submitted on December 16, 2010 | ReviewsNo Comment

Motorhomes have been in the American mind for ages and sometimes for interesting reasons. Sure, they are favorites of the older generations that want to escape the cold weather for the winter, but others love them for the freedom they represent. Some, however, find them repulsive and a waste of fuel and damaging to the environment. Whatever your view is on these vehicles, American motorhomes are one of the most popular recreational vehicles on the camper market.

First and foremost, the number one reason why people love motorhomes is the size and the space that they offer. Sadly, all that space and all those amenities come at a steep price. Class A motorhomes are among the most expensive campers on the market, as some can hit prices well above $1.5 million. For that price, these motorhomes offer up full size showers, LCD televisions, queen sized beds, full living rooms, full kitchens and other various items. Needless to say, these Class A motorhomes are basically apartments on wheels. If you have the means, a Class A is probably the best and most luxurious motorhome on the market, but most won’t need this sort of luxury in order to have fun on a camping trip.

The other motorhome is the Class C and while it’s not as large or luxurious, it does offer fun camping at a cheaper price. These are good for families and feature a bedroom at the rear of the vehicle and one above the cab. These Class C motorhomes will be much easier to handle on the road, as they provide people a normal driving position and a much smaller cabin to haul around.

When it comes to buying a Class A motorhome, there are many different motor choices and locations. Some have a gasoline motor in the front, while some have diesel motors in the rear, called diesel pushers. These are much more durable and get better fuel economy, but it does feel a lot different than a normal car and some cost a lot more than the gas powered versions. These motors are also noisy at times. Basically, just think about a semi-truck and you’ll get the idea.

The gasoline powered Class A is much different. These motors are much quieter and located right underneath the cab of the motorhome. While they burn more fuel and don’t have as much pulling power, most are cheaper to buy. Ford and GM both supply engines for these gas powered motorhomes and GM states that their motors should be good for 200,000 miles, which should be long enough for most RV folks.

Class C motorhomes are only available in gas format and the engines are located under the hood like most vans. These motorhomes are similar to most conversion vans, so driving and maintaining them shouldn’t be an issue for most Americans.

American motorhomes are the poster-boys for the camping industry. Many won’t care about pop up campers or fifth wheels, as the motorhome, especially the Class A, is ultimate luxury for the camping enthusiast. Love them or hate them, you can’t deny that motorhomes are here to stay.
