THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MOTORHOMES

TYPES OF MOTORHOMES
C Class Motorhomes (Aka Alcove or Coachbuilt) - The manufacturer takes a chassis and cab from the commercial vehicle manufacturer (most commonly Fiat Ducato), but fits their own (usually fibreglass) body to the rear. Typically C Class Motorhomes have an overhead bed above the cab. This adds more space but does come at an aerodynamic cost that affects fuel consumption. Ideal for families as extra "luton" bed comes without impacting the living space. Read more on C Class Motorhomes.
Low Profile - Similar to the C-Class, but with no over-cab bed space (may have small storage space). As name implies, it's not as high and often suitable if you don't require so many berths. Generally looks and performs better than the C-Class - perfect for couples or small families.
A-Class - The manufacturer uses the chassis from the commercial vehicle, and fits their own cab and body. This has the advantage of more integration between the cab and living space. Features such as a pull-down bed and swivel chairs in the cab make the extra cost money well spent. More details....
Panel Van / Van Conversion - These motorhomes are based on a commercial metal-panelled van. Smaller in size, features and budget. Often a popular DIY conversion choice, but also many small custom building workshops providing good quality conversions.
Recreational Vehicle - US styled larger vehicles. Often bus-sized and big on features.


VW Motorhomes - Volkswagen made their first leisure vehicle in the 1940's and these iconic vehicles have changed much over the decades. Affectionately known as the VW Kombi van, they have become a firm favourite for reconditioning and renovation amongst enthusiasts. Read more on VW Motorhomes.
