There are different classes of vehicles generally labeled as
- Class A motorhome
- Constructed on either a commercial truck chassis, a specially designed
motor vehicle chassis, or a commercial bus chassis. The addition of
slide-outs, first appearing in 1989, dramatically changed the industry, as
they allow a wider room than would fit on the road.
- Bus Conversion
- A commercial passenger bus that has been converted into an RV. Highly
customized with luxury components, bus conversions are typically the largest
A small class B campervan
- Built using a conventional van, to which
either a raised roof has been added or had the back replaced by a low-profile
body (aka coach-built).
A newer class C motorhome
- Built on a truck chassis with an attached cab section, which is usually
van based, but may also be pickup truck based or even large truck based. They
are characterized by a distinctive cab-over profile, the "cab-over" containing
a bed or an "entertainment" section. Also referred to as "mini-motorhomes". In
the UK, the cab-over is known as a Luton peak or Luton

bumper or frame hitch. Known in
British English as a caravan.

top section of walls and its roof can be lowered over its bottom section to
reduce its height for towing.
Fiberglass mini 5th wheel
- Designed to be towed by a pickup or medium duty truck equipped with a
special hitch called a
fifth wheel coupling. Part of the trailer body extends over the truck bed,
shortening the total length of vehicle plus trailer combined. Some larger
fifth-wheel trailers, usually over 40 feet (12.2 m) in length and 18,000
pounds (8,200 kg) in weight, are pulled by small semi-trucks, such as a small
- Park model (Vacation/Resort Cottage)
- This is a standard travel trailer that is not self-contained. It is
designed for park camping only, and while it is easily moved from site to

not have any water storage tanks and must be used with hookups. It is not
a mobile home.
- Luxury motor coach based on Volvo NH12
- Toterhome An uncommon term indicating a motorhome built around a semi truck chassis
(such as a
Freightliner). This type of motor home allows the pulling of large and
