Advantages of Owning a Class B Van

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:

  1. Better fuel economy.
  2. Can access narrow forest roads and other dirt roads leading to free dispersed camping areas.
  3. Can “sneak-a-sleep” wherever overnight parking is allowed.
  4. 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.
  5. If, while exploring, you find a great overnight spot, you can stay without having to backtrack to get your RV.
  6. 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.
  7. Can be used as a primary or secondary vehicle when not traveling.
  8. With the recent escalation in fuel prices, a small RV should hold its value better than a larger model.
  9. Easy to drive and park.
  10. Allows you to explore what’s down a narrow road without fearing that you may not be able to turn around.
  11. If you find a great spot, your home is with you so you are free to spend as much time as you like.
  12. 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.
