How To Buy A Motorhome

Posted on: 12 July 2022

Motorhomes suit road trips and camping enthusiasts who want to travel in luxury. However, choosing a motorhome is often complicated since you have a wide range of motorhomes to choose from. Below is an extensive guide on motorhomes. 

Types of Motorhomes 

From the start, you must be sure about the type of motorhome you intend to buy. Class A motorhomes are easy to identify since they are large and spacious. Class B motorhomes, also known as camper vans, are standard vans with a compartment containing a kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping area. Class C motorhomes are vans with an over-cab. Usually, the over cab often serves as a sleeping or storage space. 

Besides the motorhome class, you should examine the vehicle model and specification. The rule is that the vehicle attached to the motorhome is a reputable model. Conduct background research to assess its durability and reliability. After all, it would be unfortunate if the camper van breaks down as you travel. Moreover, it would help if you assessed the vehicle's ground clearance. The rule is to consider cars with a higher ground clearance since you will conduct some off-road driving. Four-wheel drive capabilities come as an added advantage. 

Features of The Motorhome

Motor home manufacturing companies are reputable for integrating state-of-the-art features in motorhomes. Nevertheless, the following features come in handy:

  • Check the lounge space on the motorhome. Smaller motorhomes come with sofas that can be collapsed into beds. You might also opt for outdoor living spaces if the motorhome comes with an awning.
  • How many people will travel in the motorhome? The available sleeping area should be sufficient for the occupants.
  • Examine the kitchen features. For instance, it should have a refrigerator, a large sink, and adequate storage space.
  • Assess the build quality of the storage areas in the camper van. Typically, they should hold the items secure when driving off-road.
  • Look out for comfort features such as entertainment systems, AC, large water tanks, and an extra fuel tank. 


Motor home manufacturing companies price their motorhomes based on their demand, features, and reputation. The rule is to examine the pricing of several motorhomes to establish which motorhome guarantees value for your money. You could also purchase the motorhome during the cold months when they have low demand. Alternatively, you could purchase your preferred motorhome after the release of a new model. Dealers often give significant discounts to clear their old stock and give room for newer models. If you buy a used motorhome, assess its condition before purchasing.
