These are the top 5 best Winnebago Class B RVs in the market today. Each one offers unique features to suit the particular needs and preferences of our travelers in a compact-sized vehicle.

Benefits of Class B RVs

Different RVs suit different kinds of people. Class B RVs, also known as camper vans, are preferred by vanlifers. These RVs are made from vans and manufacturers have added lots of features so that they can offer comfort and convenience to their users.

Camper vans are not for everyone. But read on to know more about the advantages that they offer to see if they fit your travel needs.

Driveability

Class B RVs are smaller than Class A motorhomes. As such, they are more manageable to drive. This is good news for those who feel uncomfortable getting behind the wheel and driving a huge motorhome. Camper vans are easier to take on the road and give you a smoother driving experience.

Accessibility

Class B RVs provide you more freedom especially in terms of places that you can go. With their van frames, you can go to any place that’s accessible to these compact vehicles. They also offer utmost maneuverability. In fact, they are considered the most accessible motorhomes among all RVs.

Storage/Parking

Because of their more compact size, parking and storage aren’t a problem. You can park your camper vans on regular parking spots and they’ll fit your standard garage and driveway. That means no extra cost for parking space and storage fees.

Mileage

Speaking of savings, Class B RVs offer great mileage. These vehicles are fuel efficient and that means more savings for you. With every full tank, you can cover more distance.

Towing/Hauling Capacity

Don’t be deceived by its size. Class B RVs allow you to bring your man toys with you when you travel. Some units have enough towing capacity for you to bring along a smaller vehicle or camper. Some have racks so you can strap your kayaks and other outdoor gears on the roof.

Modern

Most Class B RVs make use of modern technology and innovative engineering to be able to provide travelers with comfort and convenience on the road. They optimize the given space by incorporating useful and versatile features inside and outside these vehicles.

Things to Consider When Buying Class B RVs

As we mentioned earlier, camper vans are not for everyone. That’s why we’ve listed some of the most important factors that you need to take note of if you’re thinking of buying a Class B RV.

How Often You Travel

Do you like to go to faraway places frequently? Or do you enjoy short trips in nearby areas? The frequency and distance of your travels will let you know your priorities when looking for the best camper van for you.

If you’re the type of traveler you wants to camp at remote places, then having a fuel efficient engine should be among your top considerations.

If you’re planning to be a fulltime vanlifer, then it is important that the camper van that you buy should come with complete amenities so that you’ve got everything you need wherever you go.

RV Capacity and Floorplan

You’ve got to study the capacity of the Class B that you’re eyeing. Camper vans usually offer a sleeping capacity for 2 to 3 people but there are some that provide extra sleeping space for another person. Class B RVs also have different towing and cargo carrying capacities so you better check which one will suit your requirements.

Camper vans also come in various floorplans. Check which layout will work best for you given your specific travel needs. It is important that you visualize how you intent to use each space in the unit and do away with the features that don’t matter much to you.

Inspection and Test Drive

We’ve mentioned earlier that some of the advantages of getting a Class B RV are their driveability and maneuverability. You’ll know these for yourself once you get the chance to go behind the wheel and drive the unit. See if you’re really comfortable using it especially on long drives.

As a buyer, you should be meticulous when it comes to buying a camper van. Check every nook and cranny of the unit to make sure that everything is in proper order and working efficiently. It’s also best to read customer feedbacks so that you know what to look out for and discuss them with your dealer. Learn from the experiences of others.

Financing Strategy

Of course you have to choose the RV that fits your budget. Ask your dealer about their financing options – whether they allow bank or third party lenders. Some also have inhouse financing. Do your research when it comes to their rates and credibility then choose the one that offers the best deal.

Wrap Up: Is a Winnebago Class B RV worth the money?

We repeat, Class B RVs are not for everyone. At most, they offer space for 4 people although many just usually have room for 2. Being smaller doesn’t also mean that they’re cheaper, mind you. You can’t also expect a bigger interior space.

Despite these limitations, many people are encouraged to downsize and prefer the vanlife. This is simply because they’ve made a decision to enjoy life with less. Winnebago Class B RVs help you to simplify your life. They offer everything you need in a more compact space. With this tradeoff, you have more freedom on the road and get to go to places where only a few people dare to go.
