What Are the Best RVs of 2022?

Recent world events have many who love to travel, focusing on self-contained options. Rather than worrying about a hotel, you can treat yourself to comfort each step of your trip. The quality motorcoaches recommended below offer great options with luxurious touches. You can also further your research online, looking into the variety of motorhomes and how they’re made. A fiberglass reinforcement home is a great choice, as they’re a more sturdy option and are great in keeping the heat in, which is perfect for winter days. 

Motorcoach Options

Not everyone is interested in a towable RV; storage can be challenging, and driving is a learning curve. A motorcoach is a rolling shelter with a steering wheel included. This class includes: 

  • class B rigs also called camper vans
  • class C rigs, similar to a moving truck
  • class A rigs, similar to a Greyhound bus

For someone ready to answer yes to any request of “buy my RV today,” and they are ready to get on the road, the luxury Isata 5 34DS offers the best of both worlds. Dynamax focuses on luxury Class Cs, and this 34-foot RV includes a king-size bed option and multiple slide-outs.

If you need more room, the 2022 American Eagle Class A is an ideal choice. Multiple slides mean that, once you’re parked, you and your clan will have plenty of space and a break away from one another when you need it. First, however, consider taking a driving class to get used to a Class A. While the seats in the American Eagle offer customizable seats for the driver and navigator, it takes time to get used to all that windshield.

If you prefer a more elegant vehicle, the 2022 Volkswagen Travato still shines. This rig is built for living and offers excellent insulation for all weather. However, the sleeping options are a bit on the small side; if you’re traveling with a partner, make sure you can sleep in a double.

Trailer Choices

Your trailer choice will be impacted by the towing vehicle you currently have. From largest to smallest, you could pull: 

  • a 5th wheel
  • a bumper pull
  • a pop-up trailer

One of the top 5th wheel options for 2022 comes from Jayco, the North Point. If you like the option to camp in all weathers, the North Point offers an excellent HVAC system. In addition, the exterior is vacuum-bonded fiberglass, offering an excellent moisture barrier.

If a 5th wheel hitch doesn’t appeal, the Lance 1685 bumper pull trailer is a terrific choice. Lance trailers have been around for quite a while and offer good value on the secondary market. In addition, this trailer has a wonderfully efficient floorplan and a full wet bath.

For those who need more flexibility, the Forest River Rockwood HW296 offers both a crank-up roof and a wet bath. If you’ve stayed in a pop-up with soft walls and need something sturdier, keep an eye on this market. Hard-sided pop-ups are becoming more available.

Truck campers belong in the towable category only because, without a truck, you’re not taking them anywhere. However, if you love the idea of a camper but need more flexibility, the 80RB Adventurer Camper may be just what you need. Not only does this camper offer a full wet bath and a big enough refrigerator for a long stay in the woods, but you can haul it in a Toyota pickup.

Your Finish Choices

When choosing your trailer type, pay attention to the dry weight when considering your finish choices. If your goal is to travel across the country and enjoy views from the mountain top, you will want a lighter rig for more fuel flexibility and less strain on the chassis and drive train. Pay careful attention to your interior amenity choices to avoid carrying too much weight; by the time you add your possessions and water, your RV weight could be problematic.

The Bottom Line

From the tiniest pop-up to a Class A with multiple slides, your RV options are growing each year. No matter your travel goals, you can find a rig with plenty of space for your family.
