What Is a Class B Motorhome?

A Class B motorhome is an RV that is built on the chassis of a van (such as a sprinter van or VW van). It is best suited for smaller traveling groups, couples, or singles due to its compact size.

Even though it doesn’t have the dimensions of a fifth-wheel RV, Class B motorhomes are still able to pack quite a bit in their small size and usually come outfitted with amenities such as a galley kitchen, outdoor shower hookup, and a comfortable bed.

What Is a Class B+ Motorhome?

A Class B+ motorhome is simply a larger Class B RV.

Class B+ motorhomes are a sort of RV hybrid — a mix between a Class B and a Class C RV. They are sometimes built on the chassis of a school bus (or another type of bus) and have slightly more space than a plain Class B RV.
