What is a Class A RV?

If you’re new to the world of RVing, the class delineation can seem confusing. We’ll break down exactly what defines a Class A RV, and the advantages of driving a Class A RV vs. other RV classes.

Class A RV Basics

The main thing to know about Class A RVs: they’re big. You’ve probably seen these behemoths cruising down the interstate and mistook them for a tour bus. They’re the largest RV class available and capable of providing a luxurious cross-country experience.


Roominess typically comes standard on Class A RVs. Depending on the floorplan and options included in your Class A RV, sleep capacity can vary from 4 people up to 10. They typically range around 38 – 40 feet in length.

Each Class A RV is designed differently. Some of them are big and rugged, some are big and luxurious. If you know you need roominess, the Class A is the way to go. With optional dinettes, fireplaces, king beds, custom fixtures, etc… – you’re sure to find a Class A RV that connects with your style.


The windshields on the Class A RVs are typically sloped gently (like a bus). Depending on your model, your RV may have slideouts, awnings, and other distinct features. One thing to note though, that exterior has to be protected with a great driver behind the wheel. The Class A RVs are notoriously difficult to maneuver in tight spaces. So – the best way to protect the exterior is safe, meticulous driving!
