For 35 years we’ve been the first choice in the greater Seattle area for Renton families seeking to start their part-time or full-time RV life journey. Not only do we take great pride in our inventory, but we offer only the cleanest, best quality, and most dependable previously owned RVs. From Class A motor coaches to tow-along travel trailers, Kirkland RV has something for everyone’s taste and budget.
Motorhomes for Renton Travelers
The chief advantage of shopping with Kirkland RV Sales is our selection of RV manufacturers to choose from on the lot. We have RVs in stock from Holiday Rambler, Monaco, Thor, Coachmen, Tiffin, Skyline, Winnebago, Fleetwood, Forest River, and many more. Buying a used RV is also more affordable than buying a brand new RV, and they retain their value longer over time since we don’t have to add in manufacturer pricing overhead typical of selling new vehicles factory-direct.
More Renton families buy their first RV from us thanks to our unique inventory and affordable pricing scale. Our sales team will help you establish a target range that fits your budget, and then recommend a type of RV that will fit you and your family’s needs. Here’s an overview of the various RV classes to help you choose the best type of motorhome for your RV lifestyle.
Class A Motorhomes
Often described as yachts on wheels, these are titans of the open road. Class A motorhomes easily provide plenty of living and sleeping space for large families and/or groups of travelers. Many Class A’s also have slide-out sections that expand your living space even further when you are not on the road.
Typical amenities of Class A RVs include hot showers, fully functional kitchens, flushable toilets, and king- or queen-sized beds. While these luxurious amenities do tend to command a higher price, they offer the best possible combination of mobility and living space on the go. Class As are an ideal choice for anyone planning to take long trips in their motorhome or live in it fulltime.
Class A Diesel Pushers
Likewise, built to be a home away from home, Class A Diesel Pusher RVs share many of the luxurious amenities in terms of bathing and toilet facilities, as well as fully functional kitchens and even big screen TVs. What sets them apart from their gas-burning cousins is their superior fuel economy and reduced cost per mile.
Furthermore, diesel motors for RVs also generate more horsepower and torque than gasoline motors. This can make those steep hill climbs in mountain country a lot easier on your engine, and they burn less fuel while powering along steep and winding roads. If you have plans to make some long haul trips back and forth across the country with a lower fuel cost, a Class A Diesel Pusher is an ideal choice.
Class B Motorhomes
Called campervans, Class Bs are much more compact than the massive Class A motor coaches. The advantage of Class B RVs is their maneuverability and small footprint: they drive like a minivan or utility van, and they are far easier to park than a gigantic motorcoach. This makes single vehicle travel much easier than with larger RVs, as it can easily be driven into and out of store parking lots.
The primary drawback of a class B is it only sleeps 2 people comfortably, and the amenities of a Class B RV are far more limited than a Class A. It’s less than ideal for family travel, but if you have modest needs and simple taste in travel accommodations then the Class B is more than adequate for your RV life needs.
Class C Motorhomes
By far the most popular type of RV, Class C RVs combine the expanded living space of a Class A with the superior maneuverability and handling of Class B campervan. Class Cs have all the standard bath, bed, and kitchen amenities found on more expensive Class As, but they sleep more people thanks to their overcab compartment. They are shorter and narrower than a Class A, but wider and longer than a Class B. Many also have slide outs like Class As, and their cab is enclosed separately from passenger/living space, separated by a small doorway.
On average, a Class C sleeps 8-12 and is popular with small to medium sized families who make short-haul trips to the lake or the beach. They also cost significantly less than a Class A without sacrificing amenities, features, or interior space like a Class B. Capacity, capability, and a price tag that’s easy on the budget make the Class C most families first choice for an RV,
Fifth Wheel RVs
Pickup truck owners love Fifth Wheel RVs since they already have a vehicle ideally suited to tow them. These mobile homes are designed to attach to a post mount in a pickup truck bed, and generally, they have a cabin or storage section that overhangs the post.
Not unlike a tractor-trailer, fifth wheels can go anywhere your pickup can and provide significantly more living space and amenities than most pop-up campers. Additionally, they are far less expensive than a Class A while providing many of the slideouts and similar amenities only available on big motor coaches. Generally, fifth wheels are popular among families and older couples with a pickup who don’t plan on moving more than a few times a year or who take infrequent but extended trips.
Travel Trailers in Renton
Are you more about the experience of camping without all the glamorous amenities? Travel trailers allow you to experience the great outdoors with a comfortable and dry place to sleep at night. Often made with fixed or pop-up configurations, travel trailers are easy to haul around behind most vehicles using a standard tow hitch.
Most travel trailers just offer sleeping space and some storage to save room in the car, but there are those that are equipped with heat/AC systems, refrigerators, and the RV hookups to use them. The more amenities you want, the more you can expect to pay, but they are definitely a great budget option for small families or couples who love to go camping for days or weeks at a time.
