All About RVs | Part 2: Class B Motor Homes


Share this post

Class B RVs are Camper Vans: convenient, fuel-efficient, easy-to-drive while still being fully equipped for road trips and even off-grid camping. They are the ideal size for couples or a few buddies to take a weekend adventure or a week in the woods.

Class B Camper Vans

These are the smallest of motorized coaches — much smaller than their Class A and Class C siblings — and built on high end frames like the Mercedes-Benz® chassis from their diesel Sprinter van. They are great behind the wheel: nimble, easy to maneuver, fuel efficient, and easy to park and drive. They can even go through most drive-thrus. Inside, they utilize the most clever space-saving techniques to get the most from every inch. Usually between 18 and 24 feet long, these vans offer galley-style kitchens, wet baths and plenty of unexpected luxury features.

Class B Gas Motor Homes

Gas powered Class Bs are perfect for van life. Convenient and practical, look for such fun features as pop-top open-air bunks, exterior racks for bikes and sports equipment, four-wheel drive, solar panels and lithium battery systems.

A great example of a Gas Camper Van is the Pleasure-Way Tofino. Built on the Dodge RAM 1500 chassis, with excellent camping capability, maneuverability, and fun-ready features, you can have the best, easiest adventure ever.

Class B Diesel Motor Homes

As with all diesel motorhomes, Camper Vans offer power and efficiency that is unmatched. Built on upscale frames like the Mercedes-Benz® Sprinter chassis, diesel engines add extra power that changes an ordinary recreational vehicle into an adventure van. With more power comes more options: more weight carried (more toys in the storage space!), larger water capacities for longer off-road time, and all the added electronics and features. Due to their diesel engines, they also break down less frequently, and hold their resale price better than other recreational vans. For adventurers who want to see what lies beyond the beaten path, they are a great choice.

If going off-road in a camper van sounds like something you’re ready to experience, consider the Pleasure-Way Rekon 4×4. Not only is it designed to provide efficient campground comforts, but it is well insulated to extend the camping season. Built with more ground clearance, solar panels and heavy-duty batteries, you can go off the grid with ease.

Class B Motor Home Key Features

Camper vans are known for making it easier to travel and park without skimping on the important comforts and conveniences of other larger motorhomes. They provide comfortable sleeping, galley kitchens, wet baths and streamlined storage through clever engineering.

Camper Van Amenities

While they are the smallest type of RVs, Camper Vans can get into and out of places no other motorized RV class could hope to. They are often specially equipped with amenities like extra ground clearance, solar panels, and efficiencies that make deeper natural surroundings easy to reach.

All that, while being able to go through your local fast-food drive-thru, or park at the mall!

Efficient and Easy RVing

Taking a Camper Van on the road is like vacationing on easy-mode. Well-equipped with comfortable beds, clever storage solutions, efficient galley kitchens and bathrooms and a bundle of electronic features, you can have everything you need to get out and go at a moment’s notice. What it may lack in living space, a camper van makes up for in convenience. For on-demand travel possibilities, please contact us to help you find an RV with everything you need.
