Class A diesel motor homes are the finest of the fleet, as they say. When well-equipped, these RVs are considered the ultimate in luxurious appointments. They are also the most expensive motor homes on the road, in terms of rental costs, purchasing costs, and operating costs.

Now, that said, you do get what you pay for. If you want a roadside vacation that is decidedly not rustic, then a Class A motor home will certainly deliver the goods. Many Class A motor homes have interiors finer than some middle class apartments. Travelling in style is easily done in high end motor homes like these.

Queens of the American Road

Longer than any other RV on the road, Class As run up to 45 feet in length, and are usually between 8 and 9 feet wide. Additional slideouts, utilized when the vehicle is parked, can add up to three additional feet in width. High-end Class As often feature slideouts in the bedrooms, in the main area, and in the kitchen. Further, many have electronic awnings that make any outdoor patch of earth a shaded living area, all with the touch of a button.

Class As also have an excellent reputation for being the most comfortable RV to drive down the road. They are said to provide a smooth and steady drive, and to be easy to operate behind the wheel. Passengers can easily pour a beverage, take a nap, even use the bathroom when the vehicle is in motion.

The major drawbacks to Class As are related to her size. She is simply not a practical in-town vehicle when on vacation. This is why many people choose to either tow a smaller car behind the Class A, or to rent a car in local communities. However, size considerations aside, if the Class A fits your budget, you can rest assured there is no more comfortable way to enjoy all the highways and biways, than in these Queens of the American Road.
