Powered by gas or diesel engines, these units may have multiple slide-out sections that open up the living space. Options include kitchens, bathrooms, entertainment centres and centrally controlled heating and air conditioning.

Spacious and well equipped, even the basic models are well-appointed and roomy. But for anyone looking for the ultimate in luxury and elegance, Class A manufacturers have models costing as much as $1 million. Slide-out rooms: moving the RV's exterior wall outward at the touch of a button, to enlarge the living, dining or kitchen area by up to 1 meter (3½ ft). Smooth and stable ride when properly loaded. No special licence is required (unless the vehicle has air-brakes). A small vehicle can be towed behind, for short side trips once the motorhome is parked. Or you might prefer to tow a trailer to carry your boat or golf cart. Fully winterized versions: include a high BTU furnace, heated tanks, upgraded insulation and double-glazed windows.
