Class C Motor Home
The Class C motor home is an RV unit built onto a truck chassis. Most Class Cs offer the same amenities as the Class A's but on a smaller and more compact scale. The living area is often raised and the driver steps down into the cab to operate the vehicle. Class Cs are usually equipped with a sleeping area above the cab and a bedroom in the rear of the vehicle. The Cs will actually sleep more passengers than the A's and are the ideal RV for the family vacation or camping trip. There are many Class 's equipped with slide-outs to extend the living area.

Travel Trailer
The Travel Trailer is a vehicle that must be towed by a pickup, car, or van using a bumper or frame hitch. These RV's are best suited to being parked for several days and the tow vehicle used for local trips. Travel trailers come in many different sizes and shapes, many are equipped with slide-outs, and the amenities range from minimal to opulent. Click here for a picture of a Travel Trailer

5th Wheel
A 5th Wheel is a bi-level trailer that is towed by a special hitch (which resembles a "5th wheel") in the bed of a pickup truck. The special hitch makes this trailer easier to tow because it places the load in the center of the tow vehicle instead of behind it. The area that extends over the bed of the truck is also the bedroom in most 5th wheels. Many 5th wheels also feature slide-outs to provide a more spacious living area.

Pop-Up or Folding Tent Trailer
A Pop-Up or Folding Tent Trailer is the most economical recreational vehicle. They are inexpensive and lightweight. Most folding tent trailers can be towed by a standard-sized car. As this RV is equipped with collapsible sides, it takes up very little space when not in use. The amenities in a Pop-Up usually include a refrigerator, stove, sink, convertible beds, a portable toilet, water tank, propane supply, and a 100-125 volt electrical system.Click for a picture of a Pop-Up.

Toy Hauler
