Types of Motorhome on the Road

Main Types of Motorhomes 

Luxury on Wheels: Class A Motorhomes

Think of Class A motorhomes as luxurious apartments on wheels. They’re the biggest and most comfortable option, perfect for extended adventures or families who need plenty of space. Imagine relaxing in a spacious living area with loads of extra room, cooking in a fully-equipped kitchen, and enjoying a movie night with the entertainment centre.

However, with great size comes great responsibility (and cost!). Class A or A class motorhomes require a special driver’s license in some cases due to their weight, and navigating narrow roads can be a challenge. Plus they can be daunting to drive, especially on Irish roads.

Champions: Class B Campervans 

Campervan Type of Motorhome on the Seaside for Outing

Calling all adventurers! Class B or B-class motorhomes, also known as campervans, are the kings of maneuverability. Think freedom and flexibility on a smaller scale. These compact wheeled wonders are ideal for exploring off-the-beaten-path destinations. They typically feature convertible beds, efficient kitchens, and wet baths (combination shower and toilet).

While they might feel a bit cramped for extended trips with too many people, Class B vans are fuel-efficient and a dream to park almost anywhere.

Craving a balance between size, features, and affordability? Class C motorhomes, or mini-motorhomes, might be your sweet spot. Built on a truck chassis with a cab section that often extends over the driver’s cabin (sometimes with an “overcab” or luton bed), they offer a good compromise on living space. You’ll find kitchens, bathrooms, and sleeping areas, making them comfortable for both short getaways and longer adventures. 

The New Kids on the Block: Class B+ Motorhomes

These innovative rides bridge the gap between maneuverable Class Bs and feature-rich Class Cs. Offering more living space than a standard Class B van but remaining relatively compact, they often include convertible beds, wet baths, and compact kitchens. Ideal for those who want a blend of size and comfort features without sacrificing agility.

Choosing Your Perfect Ride: Hitting the Road in Style

The thrill of the open road awaits, but the perfect motorhome to carry you there depends on your unique travel style, driving prowess, budget, and crew. Let’s delve deeper into the questions that will guide you toward your ideal chariot:BOXDRIVE-motorhome-type-donegal-ireland
