RV Classes in Canada

Planning a road trip across Canada involves many decisions, but one of the most important is selecting the right RV. The type of RV you choose will significantly impact your comfort, convenience, and overall travel experience. This guide will help you understand the differences between Class A, B, and C motorhomes so you can hire the perfect one for your travel needs.

Class A Motorhomes


Class A RV’s are the giants of the road—imagine a home on wheels. These are the largest and most luxurious options available. These vehicles range from 26 to 45 feet (8 to 13.7 meters) in length and come equipped with all the comforts of home.

Inside a Class A motorhome, you’ll find a spacious living area, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom, and a separate bedroom. Many also feature high-end amenities like a washer and dryer, large refrigerators, and multiple slide-outs that expand the living space when parked. This type of motorhome is ideal for families or groups who want to travel in style and comfort, with plenty of room to move around and relax.

However, the size and luxury come with some trade-offs. Class A RV’s can be challenging to manoeuvre and park, especially in tight spaces. They also tend to consume more fuel, which can be a consideration for long journeys.

Class B Campervans


At the other end of the spectrum, Class B campervans are the smallest and most compact RV’s available. These vehicles, typically ranging from 17 to 23 feet (5.2 to 7 meters) in length, are essentially converted vans with all the essential amenities squeezed inside.

Class B campervans offer a basic kitchen and bathroom, a compact living area, and usually a convertible bed. They are perfect for couples or solo travellers looking for an easy-to-drive and park option. Due to their smaller size, they are more fuel-efficient and can fit into regular parking spaces, making them an excellent choice for short trips or weekend getaways.

The trade-off with a Class B campervan is the limited living space and fewer amenities.

Class C Motorhomes


Class C RV’s provide a middle ground—they strike a balance between comfort and convenience, making them a popular choice for many travellers. These vehicles range from 20 to 33 feet (6 to 10 meters) in length and are characterised by the distinctive over-cab sleeping area, which adds extra sleeping space without extending the vehicle’s length.

Inside a Class C motorhome, you’ll find a well-equipped kitchen, a bathroom, a separate bedroom, and an over-cab sleeping area. This setup can comfortably sleep 4 to 7 people, making it a great option for families or small groups who need more space than a campervan but don’t want the bulk of a Class A motorhome.

Class C RV’s are easier to drive than Class A, thanks to their more manageable size, but they still offer ample living space and amenities.
