Before choosing your rental from RVshare, it is helpful to be familiar with the different types of RVs and motorhomes that are available. Class A RVs are the largest motorhomes and are almost like small homes. They have all the amenities and room you could want and are ideal for large groups. Some of these motorhomes are elaborately customized. Class C RVs are the next size available. They are smaller than Class A but are still quite roomy. They typically have a sleeping area in the front and another in the back, and they usually have a separate bathroom area.
Class B motorhomes are campervans, which, as the name suggests, are vans that double as campers. These campervans are very convenient to drive and park. Towable trailers come in various sizes with fifth wheels being the largest of this group. Pop-up camper rentals in Miami are small, foldable campers that are towed. They are very convenient to set up and great for small groups.
