What to Ask Before Choosing a Motorhome

How often and for what will you use your motorhome?

Given the higher price of a motorhome compared to other types of RVs, the frequency of use and purpose will play a huge role in your decision making. If you're planning frequent, long-term trips, there may be no better camper than a motorhome. With a motorhome, you benefit from freedom of movement inside the vehicle as long as you're being responsible. Whether you want to whip up a quick snack or need to use the bathroom, you won't have to make as stops on the road.

How many people will you typically travel with? Which motorhome class is right for you?

Each motorhome class comes with its respective benefits, so we'll quickly outline the different motorhome classes available. Starting with Class A models, these luxury motorhomes tend to be the largest and most expensive. Class C motorhomes on average are lower and shorter and come with fewer amenities so you're compromising comfort and space, but spending less money upfront. The last motorhome option is Class B. This class is better suited for couples rather than families due to its size, but they make up for it with maneuverability.

What are my costs? Should I choose gas or diesel?

Starting with the sticker price, motorhomes tend to lead the pack as they are two-in-one RVs. As motorized RVs, you also have the choice between gas or diesel options. Diesel motorhomes will be even more expensive upfront, but they tend to last longer and you will save on gas over time. Regardless of engine type for your motorhome, you only need to maintain one vehicle rather than a tow vehicle and a trailer which could be a blessing or a curse. Some other costs you will want to consider are gas prices, insurance, and financing.

How comfortable are you driving? Motorhome or vehicle with a trailer?

The two-in-one package of a motorhome generates many opinions on what is the best RV experience. Since you will be on the road a lot with your camper, the driving experience is another factor to consider. With larger windows and dealing with less sway from the trailer, some argue it's easier to drive a motorhome. Trailer owners will counter with improved turning capability and the ability to detach the vehicle from the trailer being more beneficial. There are definitely pros and cons for both sides, but no matter what, weather and amount of practice will always play a factor during your drive.

So we've outlined some important questions you should be asking yourself during your motorhome search.
