Living in Shoreline means that you’re right next to the hustle and bustle of Seattle. While that can be fulfilling for many different reasons, especially being right on the water—it’s natural to want to get out of the city every so often.
Fortunately, traveling is a breeze when you get a used RV from Kirkland RVs. Motorhomes enable you to see the countryside and take a trip without having to pay for expensive hotels and airfare. Whether you want to stay within Washington and visit one of our many protected green spaces, or you prefer something a bit more exciting, an RV is the best way to get there.
At Kirkland RVs, we have some of the best models you can find, and our sales team will make sure that you and your family enjoy your new motorhome for years to come. No matter what style or model you choose, all of our vehicles are ready for your next adventure.
Class A Motorhomes
Although parking and driving a class A motorhome in the city may be a bit of a challenge, these rigs are perfect for extended vacations and long road trips. As the largest class of RV you can find, you will discover that these motorhomes have everything you could need, and more.
Class A models can range in size and luxuriousness, but no matter which one you choose, you’re sure to get all of the amenities you and your family could want. These RVs have room for up to six people to sleep, along with items like big-screen TVs, bathrooms, and a full-service kitchen.
If you really want to splurge on luxury, you can choose a class A motorhome that comes with expandable sections so that you get more room when you park for the night—or the weekend.
Before you get a class A motorhome, be aware of the challenges that come with it. When driving these RVs, you have to be prepared for:
- Wide Turns – driving down city streets can be nerve-wracking if you’re not careful.
- Fuel Costs – these behemoths are luxurious, but they guzzle gas.
- Power Needs – when running so many systems and appliances, you have to be sure that you can plug in wherever you park for the night.
Overall, we highly recommend class A motorhomes for people and families that will use them often. If you’re only interested in a couple of weekend adventures throughout the year, a class C model may be better suited for your needs and your budget.
Class A Diesel Pushers
One of the largest ongoing expenses for a Class A motorhome is fuel. Fortunately, you can save substantially when you purchase a class A diesel pusher instead. At Kirkland RV, we have a wide array of these models, so you’re sure to find one that comes with all of the amenities while having better fuel efficiency.
These motorhomes use diesel fuel instead of regular gasoline. Since diesel burns more efficiently and is usually cheaper than gas, you can save a lot of money on your next excursion. If you plan on taking extended road trips, or you plan on RVing full-time, then a diesel pusher is the best investment because you will be able to put more money back in your pocket over the long-term.
Class B Motorhomes
For some travelers, it’s more about the journey itself than your transportation of choice. Class B motorhomes are also considered “camper vans,” because they are usually as big as a full-size van, although with many more features.
Class B motorhomes are perfect for quick weekend getaways. Whether you want to go North to Canada or check out one of the massive national parks next to Shoreline, a camper van is an ideal companion.
These models are highly rated for being both fuel-efficient and easy to maintain. Since you don’t have to worry about as many appliances or internal systems, you can usually park wherever you like. Not only that but driving around is much smoother since you don’t need as much clearance as you would with a larger model.
At first, you may think that these motorhomes are little more than a bed and a hot plate, but many of these vehicles are surprisingly modern. In most cases, the top will expand for sleeping quarters, leaving the interior free for things like bathrooms, mini kitchens, and lounge space. Simply put, you can have all of the necessities wherever you go.
At Kirkland RV, we highly recommend class B motorhomes for people who want to take short trips. Also, if you’re on a budget, these are fantastic vehicles, thanks to their low maintenance costs and upkeep. Once you have a camper van, you’ll find excuses to travel, even if it’s just for a night or two.
Class C Motorhomes
When most people think of RVs, they imagine a class C model. These motorhomes are notable for their distinctive over-cab design. They offer a blend of size and convenience, making them the perfect family RV.
Class C motorhomes are excellent for a wide range of trips and adventures. Whether it’s a quick weekend getaway or you want to RV full-time, these vehicles have enough amenities to ensure that you’re traveling comfortably, but they’re not so massive that they limit where you can go.
Overall, we highly recommend Class C motorhomes for families that want to take more road trips, as well as anyone looking to RV for most of the year. These models work great for long and short trips, and we have a vast selection that will come with all of the features and amenities you could want.
Fifth Wheel RVs
If you have a pickup truck, then you have more mobile home options than most people. While many of our customers like getting an RV with its own motor, those with pickup trucks can get fifth wheel models instead.
These mobile homes are the Class A version of towable RVs. They’re large enough to be luxurious and accommodating for both couples and families. Usually, they have expandable sections to provide more room and comfort, making them ideal for long-term travel or top-of-the-line vacations.
One thing to keep in mind, however, is that fifth-wheel RVs have to be towed by a pickup truck, thanks to their unique design. Thus, if you only have a car or SUV, you will have to choose a different model.
That being said, we believe that these models are perfect for large families that like to travel in style. Also, because you have your pickup with you, you can park your RV for the trip and use your truck for other adventures during your stay.
Shoreline Travel Trailers
If you like the idea of towing an RV instead of driving one, but you want to be able to pull it with almost any vehicle, then a travel trailer is your best bet. These models can range in size from ultra-luxurious to low-key affairs.
The best thing about travel trailers is that you can find a model that suits your needs. Whether you need something compact that will work for one or two-night excursions, or you want something that can fit the whole family comfortably for a week, we have the travel trailer for you.
