Class B RVs can be suitable for a full-time living but can get a little limiting. This is why you should be meticulous with your assessment and decision making. There are many manufacturers of Class B RVs but the specifications are very different. Full-time RV living has demands and they must be satiated if you are to have a convenient and enjoyable experience.
Class B RVs do not require a separate vehicle for towing and are more compact. They can be easily maneuvered on roads, at gas stations and in parking lots. Class B RVs usually have a water system including sink and shower, a bed, heating, and cooling and include a refrigerator, stovetop or cooking apparatus, a seating area, and a toilet. Despite being compact, Class B RVs can be quite elaborate with various features, such as customized cabinets, just be aware that these will increase the cost.
Class B RVs have a vast price range and are more expensive than Class C RVs. The features vary widely and the experience will also be quite different depending on the model you choose. Always test drive a few before picking one and if you have any experience with RVs, then put that to good use while evaluating and choosing between specific models. Prioritize fuel economy, check the outlets, assess the lighting, test the water system, inspect the shower and bathroom, try the furnace or the burner, run the generator and check out the storage spaces.
Always consider Class B RVs that you will be able to afford. It is unwise to take on a debt you may struggle to manage. It is not hard to fall in love with majestic motorhomes, but you will have to pay a little more for a premium model if you are considering living in your RV full time. For a temporary living, you can afford to let go of some features and stick to a more stringent budget.
