You can now rent an RV through sites like RVshare—an Airbnb-like platform where owners rent out their RVs—for about the same cost as a decent family hotel. There are four main categories, or classes, of recreational vehicles. Class As are the biggest. They’re those huge buslike rigs you see barreling down the road, the ones that have more in common with a 2-bedroom condo than they do a car. Class Bs are the smallest RVs, basically a large van with a kitchenette and a small bed pallet (and/or loft). Class Cs are what RVshare calls the “Goldilocks Rig” of motorhomes, not too big, not too small. Then there are trailers, which my husband and I knew we didn’t want to deal with—even RV pros admit that it can be tough to get the hang of hauling a trailer.
