Recreational Vehicles – Traveling in Your Home

A recreational vehicle (RV) is a type of trailer furnished with living space or amenities that make its interior look and function like a home.

Originally called "camper" or "caravan" because of its purpose in providing readily available shelter while traveling, today's RV captures more attention from people who often go traveling and leaving their homes.

This vehicle offers both adventure and refuge. There are many companies are available in the market which provides best camper trailers.

The earliest RVs are used by showmen and circus performers who constantly search for a new audience in different locations. They use the vehicle as a shelter during their journey and as storage for their tools and props.

Depending on the equipped amenities, an RV can be used not only for recreation but also for full-time living. An RV should not be confused with a mobile home that is stationary like any residential building but is prefabricated in a factory before transporting to a certain location.

There are different types and categories of RVs distinguished by the living space and amenities they are equipped with. Buses converted into an RV and equipped with luxurious features belong to Class A.

The Classes B and C include campervan or vans that are converted into RVs, and motor homes – RVs that most resemble a home – respectively.

Some RVs have a teardrop, the term caravan manufacturers use to refer to the caravan towed by a vehicle. This type of RV is intended for lightweight travel and may not provide all the amenities expected from an average new or used RV.
