Choosing the Right RV for Your Lifestyle: Towables vs. Motorhomes


Have you been thinking about exploring the RV lifestyle? While there are many different styles of RV’s to choose from, there are two main categories: towable RVs, which require a vehicle or truck in order to be moved from location to location, and motorhomes which can freely move around on their own due to their built-in motor.

Each style has its own set of pros and cons; some people may have space constraints in their driveway or garage so they cannot have a larger motorhome like the class A diesel RVs. This blog post will help you understand what type of RV would work best for you based on your lifestyle or go ahead and take our quick RV lifestyle assessment and we’ll pair you with the perfect RV for you. 

Understanding The RV Lifestyle

After months of COVID keeping out inside our homes, many people are looking to join the RV lifestyle and hit the open road! The RV lifestyle is one of the most popular today, but it can be a little difficult to understand if you’ve never been exposed to it. Being out on the open road while having the feeling of taking home with you is an experience that many people crave.

So, what type of RV is for you? The first step to finding the right RV for your lifestyle is determining which style will work best for the way that you plan to live when exploring and charting your path! When it comes down to it, there are many different types of RVs but not all styles will be a good fit (or within an individual’s budget). It all depends on how you like to live and where you plan on going with your RV. This blog post will help provide some insight as to which RV would be best suited based on various lifestyles

Towables vs Motorhomes

When choosing between towables and motorhomes, there are some things that need to be considered such as space constraints in your driveway or garage for larger RVs like Class A’s, whether you will have roof-mounted solar panels on top of your vehicle (if at all) which would prohibit the use of truck campers and fifth-wheel trailers.

If you are looking for something small and easy to tow without any worries, a small camper or travel trailer would be the way to go. These hook up to most vehicles quickly and easily and allow users quick set-up when arriving at their destination.

Most travel trailers and fifth-wheels come with slide-outs that create more interior space when staying in campgrounds. Many travel trailers and fifth-wheels have an indoor kitchenette area for cooking and even entertaining guests as well!

A larger towable motorhome could be what someone needs if they want something larger with more amenities. The main difference in towables from traditional house trailers or RVs (motorhomes) would be that there will not be any need for an attached vehicle at either end of the trailer as it can freely move around on its own power without any problems. This also eliminates many concerns people may have about having enough room when parking their family car inside while staying at campgrounds since this is no longer an issue!

So Which One Is Better?

Towables are great for first-time ‘RVers’ who don’t want to pay the full cost of a motorhome or people with smaller budgets. They have more mobility and can be set up in various places without many restrictions (albeit they may require an extra parking space).

Choosing the right RV for your lifestyle can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to! With a little research and understanding of what you want out of an RV, anyone can choose one that’s perfect for them – no matter their budget or needs.
