hi folks. I'm.
Ian Baker the product specialist here at American RV in Grand Rapids Michigan and today. I want to make a little video helping the person who's just getting into our being, if you're looking at some motorhomes, but a little confused as to the different types that's what this video is for we're going to break it down for you there are three basic types of motor homes in two subtypes you have a Class A B and C and then we have two kind of hybrid classes our subclasses that we'll get into in just a moment. So, we're going to start off with the Class A this is generally your largest motorhome it can get up to 45 foot long usually built on a bus or custom chassis perfect example is this one right behind me here as you will see this is a 43-foot motorhome and when it's talking about class days we have two basic engine types the first type is a rear engine diesel or what is commonly known as a diesel pusher they're generally pretty easy to pick out outside the coach because you will have your radiator either here on the back of the coach or on the side towards the back the big advantage of the diesel is you generally have more powers in your gas which is oftentimes why you find them on your really high-end motorhome the second type of Class A is like the one behind me here the Thor challenger which is a gas chassis in the engine is located upfront the two major differences between the two as.
I mentioned earlier one is the power of the diesel two you generally get a better ride because the engine is in the back pushing you down the road and you don't feel as much wind force as drivers are going by the second type of motorhome. I want to talk about is the Class B is generally the smallest motorhome available it's a big advantage to it, if you can drive it and park it just about anywhere basically what they do is manufacturers will take a van chassis and up fit it with all the amenities to make the home portion inside these class B's are available on either diesel chatzi's or on gas. So, we've covered the really large class days and these smaller class these kind of right in between is the Class C this will range quite a bit in size you can get down to 21 foot all the way up to over 30 foot and these are generally identifiable on the outside by the tab over right here the cab over is usually a sleeping space, but it doesn't necessarily have to be they can cut that back a lot of manufacturers for entertainment centers up there too basically what this is it is a cutaway band chassis you can see this one right here for example at the e450 chassis they cut away and build the home portion in the back.
So, now we've covered your three major categories of motor holes. So, A to B in the C, but among your travels and shopping experience you will come across a couple of hybrid classes of motorhomes as well the first one being what they call the Class B plot this is somewhere kind of in between a B and a C it's very subjective and all honesty it's generally just a smaller class C that isn't near as wide as long or as tall very similar to the Orion. I have right back here the other class name you may run across is the super seat well we don't carry them here at American RV is essentially a Class D that is built on a semi truck chassis the advantages as.
I said much larger a lot more powerful engines and because of that they tend to cost a little more - all right folks as you can see we have a large selection of motorhomes here at American RV. I hope this video helps you gain some knowledge about the different classes that are out there, if you have any questions or you're interested in a Motorhome please either give us a call here at American RV stop on by or you can always take a look at our website which is American RV comm thanks again for watching. I'm.
