Who Builds the Best Motorhomes for the Money?
We have been collecting data for many years and buyers are primarily concerned about two things: quality and price. Let’s talk about quality first!
It never fails, someone will call our office and ask, “Who builds the best motorhomes?” Great question, but there are a number of variables that will determine which model is best for your travel needs. For example:
- How long do you plan to own your RV?
- How long do you plan to vacation in your motorhome each year?
- Do you want diesel or gas?
- How much is your budget?
- Will you be towing anything?
- Do you plan to go off road?
Thus, the reason for our Motorhome Comparison Guide, which answers all these questions and much more.
What to Look for in a Well-Built Motorhome
All buyers want to know if the model they are considering is well built and will stand the test of time. Nobody wants a poorly built motorhome, new or used. Having a set of construction standards that properly reflect a structurally sound motor home is important and helps eliminates any confusion when trying to determine the quality of a particular brand or model. Our in-depth motorhome reviews will save both time and money.
An important component for choosing a Class A, C or B motorhome is how well is it is constructed. In Chapter 2 of our publication we cover important aspects of construction such as:
- Chassis & frames
- Exterior wall construction
- Insulation types
- Plumbing & electrical
- Kitchen cabinets
- Roofing materials
- We also discuss the pros and cons associated with diesel and gas engines and much more
As we conducted our research for this chapter we discovered that most RV salespeople did not know much about the overall construction methods of the product they were selling. This bothered us and it made our staff look deeper into the industry to see how much those at the top knew about construction techniques. Surprisingly, most in upper management were also somewhat hesitant in explaining which construction techniques were best and what to look for in a quality built motorhome. We were beginning to think we would never finish this chapter until we decided to contact individual plant managers to see if they could shed some light on the subject. To our surprise, many plant managers were delighted to talk with us and they had the expertise and knowledge to answer our questions.
With over eight years of research you can be confident in knowing you will have the most relevant information in your hands to purchase your next motorhome, new or used. You will learn how RV manufacturers compare to each in the areas of:
- Customer satisfaction
- Factory support
- Resale value
Motorhome Companies Featured in our Publication
The newly updated Motorhome Comparison Guide now rates over 96% of all RV Manufacturers in North America. Our research team interviews each factory every year as well as talking with RV dealers around the country and, perhaps most importantly, lots of existing owners. Our research team also collects data from various RV organizations and we edit all this into our easy-to-read publications.
The Motorhome Comparison Guide includes a current factory article for each manufacturer with helpful and interesting facts and insight you won’t find anywhere else, including buyouts, impending or past bankruptcies, lawsuits and notable events and product changes. Our goal is to provide a brief description or, “Snap Shot” of each RV Company based on interviews and research collected over the years. This gives our readers helpful insight into how each company got its start and the main focus or direction the company is heading.
Each article contains information in these key areas:
- Company background and history
- Principle target customer
- List of best-selling models
- Company’s main competitors
- Average MSRP of best-selling motorhomes
- Financial stability of company
- 9-years of rating charts which show how each manufacturer is performing over multiple years. (These rating charts are very important and reveal if a particular manufacturer is trending, upward or downward in quality, customer satisfaction, factory support and overall resale value of models)
- Objective comments from research staff
Some of the manufacturers on the chart below are out of business but there are still used motorhomes being sold to customers that would like to know how they rated while in business.

Class B & B+ Motorhomes – A New Addition to our Guide
In the past we did not rate Class B manufacturers in our guide, but we have received many emails requesting we feature this growing segment of RV products, and we are glad to announce this new addition.
With high gas prices and the cost factor of purchasing a Class A or Class C motor home the popularity of Class B’s has continued to rise and many RV factories are producing more of these units to meet the growing demand.
RV Reviews started researching this classification in 2009 and we now have more data on Class B manufacturers than any other single source in North America. We provide factory ratings for Class B & B+ for model years 2010-2021. Class A and C manufacturer ratings are from 2006-2021.
With over 20 different Class B manufacturers rated we believe this addition is a great resource for anyone considering this increasingly popular segment. We remain committed to bringing our readers the most accurate and up-to-date ratings and feedback in the RV industry via our constant updates.
Buying a Motorhome with Confidence & Peace of Mind
If you have never attended a large RV show or visited a mega RV dealer you are in for a big surprise. The first thing you’ll notice right off is, “There are so many choices, where do I begin?” Did you know this is the number one reason why people put off buying a motor home? They are overwhelmed with all the choices and become frustrated. Don’t let this happen to you!
The second biggest reason people decide not to buy an RV is that they don’t know who they can trust. It’s not uncommon to hear your RV salesperson say something like, “This manufacturer builds the best models“. After you have visited a number of dealers it’s like a broken record. Everybody thinks their brands are the best in the industry. We have found there is a BIG difference, though, and our guide will show you which companies are consistently producing the best models -as well as giving you a head’s up about potential problem years. If you’re going to spend tens of thousands of dollars for an RV it makes sense to educate yourself about the industry.

Part One – RV Reports Intended Use:
In this section of the report we focus on intended use. There are four main categories most RV models will fall into. They are: Weekend, Vacationer, Snowbird and Full-Time use.
Based on the standard options, overall quality, and data collected from various RV sources, we can accurately determine the overall intended use of a particular model.
If your intention is to use your RV to head south for the winter and spend 3-6 months a year in your unit, you will probably be dissatisfied with a poorly constructed model or a model that was intended for moderate use only.
Part Two – Comprehensive Rating Chart:
The manner in which a particular RV model performs in the areas of: Quality of Construction, Reliability, Payload, Drivability (motorhome only), Customer Satisfaction, Style & Resale Value will ultimately determine the overall satisfaction level of the unit.
When rating a particular model, our staff has spoken with RV owners, dealers and we attended various RV shows on a regular basis. We also receive feedback from people that have bought our reports in the past. All this information is collected and stored in our data base which allows us to accurately rate models based on over eight years of research.
Part Three – Depreciation Chart:
This cart shows how a particular RV model depreciates over time and the RV dealer’s invoice for a new model or the true wholesale value for a used model. This information will help you decided if the model you’re looking at is a good investment and how a particular model will perform over time in regards to resale value.
Having the dealer’s invoice or true wholesale value is very important and puts you in the driver’s seat when it is time to negotiate a price. This data has helped thousands of our customers over the years and we receive positive emails on a regular basis thanking us for this info.
Each report also includes a STAR RATING showing what that particular RV model received based on the data collected in the Comprehensive Rating Chart. A Five Star Rating is the highest rating an RV model can receive.
