Need help determining which RV is right for your needs?


Large, comfortable, bus-like vehicles that range to 42 feet; expensive; a challenge to maneuver, but capable of towing a smaller car for use once you reach your destination


Built on a truck chassis with sleeping quarters over the cab, more affordable, and easier to navigate


Smaller van campers that can be used as primary transport; can be configured to tow boats or ATVs


A trailer with a gooseneck hitch that attaches to the bed of a pickup; their advantage is ability to disconnect the trailer and drive the tow vehicle freely


Smaller trailer with a standard hitch; can easily be disconnected from the tow vehicle


Light, inexpensive, tent-like folding units that offer ample sleeping room; small and easy to tow


Loads into the back of a pickup; a range of styles is available; very affordable and removable
