Disadvantages of Owning a Class A Motorhome

Here are some of the disadvantages of owning a Class A Motorhome:

  • Class A motorhomes can be difficult to maneuver. Their size and body shape can prove challenging, especially if you are towing a trailer or car.
  • Fuel efficiency is lacking. Class A's aren't known for their gas mileage, and it can cost a bundle to fill them up. Fuel tanks can range from 50 to 250 gallons!
  • Class A's can be cumbersome for everyday errands. Class A motorhomes are just too big just to unhitch and drive to the store. In most cases, you will need to tow another vehicle for everyday use.
  • Costs can add up quickly! Class A's are expensive and require a substantial investment. New Class A's start around $75,000 and go upwards of $2 million with the average sitting somewhere around $350,000. As with any RV, significant savings is available if you choose to purchase a used RV.
  • Depreciation causes a significant drop in motorhome value. Class A's that are over five years old will experience a severe drop in price.

Whether you choose to buy a Class A motorhome, make sure to hire a professional RV inspector before you sign any agreement. It’s also imperative that you have the right coverages and protection for your RV. Contact RVInsurance.com today at 1-866-646-1755 to speak with an agent.
