Top Three RV Models if you are in the market right now.

By Shelley Trupert

Deciding to use an RV for your next camping trip is exciting whether you are purchasing it or renting it. Depending on what you are seeking, there are numerous options to choose from and different things to consider. Are you looking for a tow-behind fifth wheel? Do you like to go off-roading and need a toy-hauler? Would a smaller Class C RV be sufficient, or do you really want to go all out and get a top of the line Class A motorhome?  Depending on the way you intend to use you RV, how often you want to travel, the accommodations you would like to have, and the amount of room you require to be comfortable, there is the perfect RV out there to meet your needs. The best place to start would be with these top three RV models.

 

Jayco Recreational Vehicles

Jayco was founded in 1969 by Lloyd Bontrager and Al Yoder. Over the course of the next five decades, Jayco has become the world’s largest privately held RV manufacturer. Known for their quality and sustainability, Jayco is a member of the RV Hall of Fame and has been named America’s bestselling travel trailer for the past 13 years. If you are searching for a fifth wheel, the 2018 Eagle HT is a great choice. This trailer is ideal for a family that wants to travel in style. There are two, large bunk beds in the front of the trailer, ideal for children. The mid-section has a sleepaway sofa, as well as a table that converts to a sleeping area. The kitchen is roomy and equipped with an oven/range, refrigerator, and has plenty of storage. LED lights and a TV are also included. A full bathroom area has a residential style shower, sink, and toilet. The master bedroom area is both private and comfortable. This is truly your home away from home.

 

Airstream

When you think of an RV, most people have a vision of the original Airstream camper; a metal, tube-shaped, travel trailer that was light enough to tow behind a vehicle. Boasted to “move like a stream of air” the Airstream brand started in 1931 and remains a strong company with a durable product line. While the RVs have been modernized through the decades, the outside appearance of the Airstream has changed very little. The overall length has increased in some models, to accommodate more interior amenities, but the unique design and dependability has not waivered.

 

Winnebago

If you seek a luxury recreational vehicle, look no further than the Class A Adventurer Winnebago. The Adventurer comes in five floorplans and offers plenty of living space. There is also ample storage to accommodate all your travel needs. The interior has a full kitchen, comfortable master bedroom, fireplace, and an open living room/dining room area. Depending on the floor model you choose, your RV may have two full bathrooms, a washer and dryer, and sleeping for up to 6 people. This is the optimal recreational vehicle.

Choosing a recreational vehicle should be fun and exciting.  After all, it is designed to be included in your vacation destination. While there are hundreds of different design styles and options to choose from, you can quickly narrow down your choices based on what you are looking for and how you want to use your RV. From there, deciding where you want to travel to will be your biggest hurdle.

    Such a great post! I actually never rent RV before but I am planning to do in when I go to New Zealand sometime in the future! I’ve always wanted have RV and paint it in flowers just like back in hippies days 🙂 Now I love the look of Airstream but I think Jayco Recreational Vehicles would be more practical

    My knowledge about RV’s is rockbottom so probably won’t be able to make out much. However the post is quite informative and really prepped me to do a bit of research of my own. RV’s aren’t really popular in India but we can try renting one in our next trip abroad. Thanks for sharing

    I haven’t seen too many RVs and this post has been quite an insight to me in terms of what all it offers. The features like floors, space in washrooms etc is a revelation. I will be sure to check out what each RV offers after this.

    We love camping as a family and have been utilizing our tents when we camp. RVs are not available in India but we are keen on having one whenever it enters the market and is a bit affordable. Thanks for all the information in this post and got to know that Jayco is the world’s largest privately held RV manufacturer which is a really interesting fact.

    I know 0 on RVs but found out a couple of years ago that Winnebago is actually a Native American tribe! Very interesting. I’d like to stay a night in a luxury Airstream cos those are just luxurious.

    Thank you for this overview. I do dream of going on a looong road trip in an RV one day. Love the look of the airstream – but it’s good to know more about the facts.

    I’ve always thought having an RV would be fun. With all of the advancements that they have made with the RVs today, I’m even more inclined to want one.

    We’ve rented an RV before and I just loved the experience. But a Winnebago sounds even greater for camping. Since it screams of luxury, I’m in for it anytime! Luxurious camping experiences anytime!

    I know so many families that either travel in an RV or have purchased one in retirement. It is a great idea for those that don’t want to be locked into one place but want the comforts of home. These are some great companies that I’ve seen on the road and you’ve given them all a good wrap up.

      Thank you so much! We definitely see an increase in families, couples and individuals traveling in RVs long-term. With so many amazing resorts, campgrounds and other places to stay, the most difficult decision is which direction to head.

    I’ve never looked into buying an RV before but my boyfriend and I are currently contemplating a motorhome here in NZ (I think they’re the same thing?!). I’m not sure if these brands exist over here or in the UK but if I had to choose one it’d be the Winnebago. I like how spacious it sounds, and I think I’ve heard it mentioned on a few TV shows before?

      Check out renting some different types before you buy. Once you get in them, you really get a feel for what you want in terms of size/space. In New Zealand you are more likely to come across Mitsubishi or Fiat motorhomes. In the UK, RVs tend to be smaller and camper vans are popular across Europe. The large RVs and travel trailers are most common in North America. In any case RVing is becoming a popular mode of travel, worldwide.

    I would love to buy an RV and just travel around the US for a year. It would be amazing to just drive around and see all of the national parks. These look like some solid choices for RVs.

    My husband and I just love camping! We used to do it all our life, ever since we were very young and used to carry our tent on top of our backpack. However, as we are growing older, sleeping in a tent doesn’t seem so appealing anymore, so the idea of investing in an RV seems great. I really appreciate all the information you provide in this post, so we are going to look closely into it. I think renting it sounds like a better deal, since we have no place to keep it.

      I can relate. I used to do a lot of wilderness camping and tenting but as I get older my back just can’t take it anymore. RVing has allowed me to keep on adventuring while still having a hot shower and comfy bed. Renting is a great option because you can get exactly what you need and don’t have to pay storage and upkeep.

    I didn’t realize there were different kinds of RVs. I know my parents talk about getting one when they retire, I’ll have to send them this information!

      Suggest to them they rent a few different types to try out. That way they will end up with the exact RV that fits their needs.

    That is such a cool RV. Jayco RV will be my choice if I am looking for a home away from home. Especially the master bedroom and the modern bathroom options sound too luxurious to have in an RV. I would go for that one.

      Yes, Jayco is a great choice for a long-lasting RV with many lay-outs available. The bedroom and bathroom really make for luxurious living – hardly qualifies as camping!

    The Winnebago is my top choice if I would have the means to buy an RV! How awesome that it can accommodate up to 6 people comfortably!
