What is a Class B Motorhome?
Class B motorhomes have come a long ways since the 1970s. Today Class B motorhomes have a much more aerodynamic look and are built on a stock van chassis produced by Mercedes, Ford, Chevrolet, GMC and Dodge. Most have a top extension providing more headroom and some models even include basement storage. Safety is a big concern with most RV consumers and Class B motorhomes rate very well in this area.
With driver and passenger air bags, tire pressure monitoring systems and rollover protection features built into most Class Bs, it all adds up to a safe driving experience. Our Class B motorhome reviews will discuss gas vs. diesel power, sleeping space, construction techniques and materials, as well as must-have features -as well as those to avoid. Best suited for weekend trips and shorter vacations, Class B RVs are not suited for full-time use. Regardless, sales are on the rise because of excellent road manners, ability to serve double duty as a daily family vehicle and functionality. Another important selling feature is price, with many Class B & B+ RVs selling for less than half of a Class motorhome.
What is a Class B+ Motorhome?
A Class B+ motorhome is a style of RV more closely resembling a Class C motorhome, with a cab-style front. Like all standard Class C motorhomes, this cab-style front does not have a sleeping area above the cab. The area above the cab in a Class B plus is often used for storage and/or an area for a TV.
Class B + is built on a larger chassis when compared to the smaller, standard Class B van chassis. The chassis under a Class B+ is usually the same chassis used in most Class C motorhomes, though Class B + motorhomes are a bit easier to drive compared to a standard size Class C motorhome. Basically a Class B plus is a mini version of a Class C motorhome.
