    Hello Oh Experienced Motor Home owner.

    I am new to this type of vehicle but I see you have a Class A motorhome.

    Can you explain the differences between a Class A & Class B?

    Which manufacturer do you consider "The" best?

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Jean-Pierre

    Class B retains the original base vehicle cab. Class A is a complete coachbuilt including the cab, with just the drivetrain and chassis from the base vehicle. Regarding which is the best....touchy subject :Rofl1:

    Just to confuse you even more not only are there A & B class motorhomes there are also S & C class vehicles as well. A & B class models are generally integrated conversions which is a coachbuilt body on a chassis leaving none of the original vehicle except for the badges,but inside the dash and controls are the original vehicle. A class is also used sometimes for the American RV.
    B & S Class are used by Hymer and it indicates the Type of construction. C class is a conversion that retains the original cab front end.
    No doubt there will be some 'experts' along to correct my errors,I await with baited breath.
    As for best make,whatever you like and for the price you are prepared to pay,PERSONALLY I like Hymer conversions,but typical of a site like this there will be many views popping up when its hometime.

    A class integrates thecab area and gives far more space for the same length with fewer seams to leak
