Class B Vans have become the fastest growing segment of the RV industry in recent years. Consumers are finding Class B Vans to be nimble, responsive and pleasure to drive. They get great gas mileage and with their relatively small size can be taken anywhere. Here are 13 advantages of owning a Class B Van:
- Better fuel economy.
- Can access narrow forest roads and other dirt roads leading to free dispersed camping areas.
- Can “sneak-a-sleep” wherever overnight parking is allowed.
- With a larger RV, many people leave the RV behind and drive a tow vehicle to explore the area. With a small Class B Van, your home and food is always with you so you can save on restaurant meals.
- If, while exploring, you find a great overnight spot, you can stay without having to backtrack to get your RV.
- Since every storage area in an RV seems to get filled, the less storage space you have, the less “stuff” you bring or are tempted to buy on route.
- Can be used as a primary or secondary vehicle when not traveling.
- With the recent escalation in fuel prices, a small RV should hold its value better than a larger model.
- Easy to drive and park.
- Allows you to explore what’s down a narrow road without fearing that you may not be able to turn around.
- If you find a great spot, your home is with you so you are free to spend as much time as you like.
- You can be more spontaneous. Since all your gear is with you, if you find a wonderful hiking trail, camping area, or meet up with people, you can take advantage of opportunities without having to return to home base.
