So you and your partner have decided to take the plunge—you’re shopping for an RV. Congratulations!
As we’ve said before, RVs come in all types and sizes. There’s no one-size-fits-all model. You’ll need to find the perfect RV for your lifestyle — and your sweetheart! Before diving into our RV recommendations, why note explore RV types and find your perfect match here.
Let’s review the basics. There are five general categories of RVs:
Only you and your partner can figure out which RV is best for you, but we’re happy to offer some guidance. First, look for an RV with these couple-specific features:
Here are a few helpful suggestions if you’re not still unsure of the best RV for you and your partner.
`Do you and your partner love hiking? Cooking over a campfire instead of a stove? What about boondocking? Adventurous couples often enjoy the offroading capabilities of Class B campervans or popup travel trailers.
Your tiny RV retreat will still have all the essentials—a place to eat, sleep, and store food and clothing—but without the extra weight or maintenance of a bathroom, laundry, or expansive living space.
Ray and Tammy of The RV Lifestyle recently recommended a lightweight travel trailer for weekend vacationers who are empty nesters or recently retired. They also offer several suggestions for specific models.
But as we’ve said, your perfect RV depends on your lifestyle. Many seniors who go on month- or summer-long RV trips prefer the homey luxury of a Class A motorhome. Seniors who already own a large SUV or pickup truck also enjoy fifth wheels, which come with a surprising variety of floor plans and amenities.
Fifth wheels are incredibly popular with full-time RVers. Why? Flexibility. Imagine the ease of parking your RV at a serene campsite, then unhitching your truck so that you can drive to nearby supermarkets or restaurants. With a fifth wheel, you get the best of both worlds: a spacious RV living space with zippy, detachable transportation.
Any motorhome can be decorated or renovated to your taste. But the expansive slideouts and gourmet kitchens of top-of-the-line Class A RVs delight couples with a taste for luxury. Touchscreen infotainment centers, full-sized showers, and outdoor kitchens allow you to relax and enjoy life even while parked at a remote campsite.
