What is it that makes a Class B Camper Van so appealing?
While out and about with some friends the other day, I happened to spot a great looking Roadtrek Class B Camper Van a few cars ahead of us.
I quickly told my friend who was driving to pull up next to it so I could get a better look.
“Why? It’s just another RV,” he said.
I quickly corrected him by telling him it was much more than another RV. By the look he gave me after my response, I realized the conversation was headed towards becoming a a camper van-educational lesson of sorts.
Class B Camper Vans are very different than their larger counterparts. Although smaller, they get better gas mileage, are more maneuverable, and still have the same luxurious of a standard RV.
“But you can’t even spend the night in one,” said my friend.
Believe it or not, a camper van can sleep between 2 to 3 people easily. Also, the dining area is many models can easily convert into a sleeping area as well.
“Yea but what if you want to cook some dinner for the family…”
Not a problem.
Class B Camper Vans – especially newer models – can come loaded with almost anything you can dream of and that includes a galley/kitchen area. Also, you can choose from a variety of options including flat screen TVs, custom interiors, two packages, and even full baths.
The most inviting aspect of a Class B Camper Van is likely their price. Compared to most large RVs, there is a huge difference in price when it comes to camper vans. Quite simply, they aren’t going to cost you an arm and a leg and you’re still getting a vehicle loaded with all the amenities you need.
“So remember,” I said to my friend at the end of my brief camper van spiel.
“They aren’t just another RV.”
