There are many kinds of RVs, but finding the right one for your trip is key to success. Here are three of the most popular models and what they can do for you.
Towable RVs are the first option for those who are interested in traveling. These RVs tend to cost less and can be pulled behind trucks or SUVs that you drive. These are not motorized, so they can't be driven on their own. Travel trailers can cost less than $20,000, while motorized homes, like Class C rigs, can cost up to $150,000.
Park Model RVs
Park model RVs aren't RVs in the normal sense of the word. They are actually park homes, shaped and designed to look like a normal cabin or ranch home. These units sit on wheels in some cases, so they can be pulled from place to place. Others don't sit on wheels, but they can be loaded onto a trailer after the camping season is over, allowing the home to be moved to a new location. These RVs are much larger than the typical pull-behind trailer and may have better amenities and storage inside.
These units are designed to be temporary accommodations, and they are placed on a site. They are hooked up to electricity, sewer, and water just the same as an RV. They cost up to $80,000.
Best for seasonal use, motorized RVs are temporary homes that can be used at camp sites and for traveling. They are homes built into a motorized chassis, so you don't need a truck or other vehicle to pull the home. A type C motor home is built into a van's frame and has a wider body that is attached to the cab. Over the top of the main cab is typically a large rounded shape; that's where the overhead sleeping compartment is for the home. These units can sleep up to 8 people in many cases, making them good for camping when families want to go. There is a kitchen area as well as a separate dining area and bathroom set up. Some RVs come with entertainment systems, like TVs or radios built in. Slideouts may also be available; these are parts of the unit that extend out of the body to make more room in the living area.
These are just a few of many RV options on the market today. Finding the right one within your budget is key so you can enjoy your travels.

This blog is filled with tips that can help you decide if it is time to let go of the car that you love and replace it with something that will keep you going when you need it to get you there with no problems.
