Class B Motorhomes

A Class B Motorhome can also be known as a Campervan as it usually is built using a conventional Van Chassis. What makes this stand out from regular vans is that it has a raised roof. Class B Motorhomes, though, are not simply camper vans, but they can also be based on a truck chassis.  The most typical chassis here in the United States for a Class B Motorhome is the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Diesel, Dodge Ram Promaster Gas and the Chevrolet Express Gas.

Class C Motorhomes

Typical Class C Motorhomes are built upon a truck chassis that usually has a front mounted engine and transmission. They are usually powered not by a Diesel engine but by a Gasoline engine.  Most Class C's have an automatic transmission instead of manual which can be found in the Class B. Class C Motorhomes are characterized by their distinctive "cab over" profile which means there is some sort of sleep area or storage over the driver.
