How Large Should My RV Trailer Be?

The largest RVs are those that are called Class A RVs. They are constructed on top of a chassis that is often used for a bus. While many RV owners feel like they could use a larger RV, there are some downsides to purchasing a larger one.

How Long Will You Be Camping?

If you intend to spend a long time in one location with your RV, it would make sense to purchase a larger RV because it will be easier to live within a larger one.

How Many Features Do You Want?

The larger the RV, the more features that will likely come with the RV. You're more likely to have entertainment features, a living area, a dining table, a shower, refrigerator, complete kitchen, granite counter tops, and a flushing toilet.

How Much Control Do You Need?

If you purchase a larger RV, it will be more difficult to control than a smaller one. Therefore, if you already have an RV, consider how difficult you find it is to control it and decide if you'd be willing to drive an RV that is even more difficult to maneuver. Fortunately, there are some RVs that have a portion that slides out or pops out to provide additional living space.

Fifth wheel living trailers provide even more space. They have a gooseneck front that is attacked to the back of a truck. The trailer usually has a split floor plan that includes an area for a bedroom that is over the truck bed.

What Space Should You Prioritize?

One of the most common reasons why RV enthusiasts want more space for their RVs is because they need more space for each of the passengers to rest comfortably while in bed. The size of the dining room is usually not as important since your passengers can often eat outside or meals can be consumed one at a time. However, if the beds are not comfortable, this can significantly reduce the pleasure of the RV experience.

You may desire to have a large bathroom. However, very little time is usually spent in the bathroom compared with the rest of your home. Therefore, it may make sense to utilize your space somewhere else instead. Still, the bathroom must be large enough to where any of the passengers could fit inside it. Have the tallest passenger stand in the shower as well and make sure there is enough head space. With all of this information, you will be able to determine how large your RV needs to be.
