Choosing the Right RV For Your Family

Are you thinking about buying a motorhome? Motorhome sales have skyrocketed since the start of the pandemic and this is for good reason. Staycations have become hugely popular as an easy and affordable alternative to international travel, plus this will give you a holiday home on wheels. You can even hire out the RV when not in use to make some extra cash on the side.

Types of Motorhomes

Investing in a motorhome is also a major decision. Having an awareness of the various types of RVs can help you to find the right one for your needs before you commit to the various upfront costs along with motorhome insurance. A few of the different types include travel trailers, lightweight trailers, fifth wheels, or toy hauliers. In the UK, you will find the most common to be class A, B or C motorhomes.

For the Large Family Getaway

If you are planning a large family getaway or a trip with a group of friends then you will find a class A RV to be best. This is because living space is maximised and there is usually ample space for 4+ people with ample storage. Additionally, class A motorhomes often come with the most luxury features, which can greatly improve your experience. If you have an especially large or extended family, or a large group of friends, an articulated trailer may be the best option, giving you ample space and privacy.

Family of 4

If it is a classic family of 4 trip or a group of friends that does not exceed 4 then a class B is probably your best bet. As known as camper vans, these are slightly more compact but still feature separate kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms. Alternatively, you could opt for a class C with slide-outs – these are room extenders that can increase the living space of your rig when parked. A class C could be best for those planning on renting out their RV as they are versatile as the middle-sized option.


For couples, you might find that a class B motorhome is still best as this will give you enough space for two along with all the features that you need without costing as much as a class A or C. These are also ideal for quick weekend getaways as opposed to lengthy holidays.


Hopefully, this post will give you a better idea of what to look for when in the market for an RV. RV sales are fast on the rise with people realising the benefits of staycations and the beauty that the UK has to offer. A motorhome will also give you a holiday home that is on wheels, plus it could be a smart investment if you decide to rent out the RV when it is not in use.
