The Versatility of Camper Vans – Park Anywhere

We are often asked, “Can a motorhome be comfortably used in-town or in similar situations where size restrictions may become an issue?” Class B camper vans often provide the answer to parking and driveability concerns. Our response to this question is, “With the high gas mileage per gallon of fuel that camper vans achieve coupled with the comfort they provide, some people even choose to replace their minivans, sedans, and trucks with certain campervans as their daily vehicle.” Continue reading to learn more about the most efficient motorhomes for both off-road and in-town travel.

Class B Motorhomes have been growing in popularity over the past number of years as more people join the RV lifestyle and venture off-road. However, many of these Class B motorhomes are just as capable on-pavement as they are off. Whether at a National Park or cruising down a highway, the reliability and maneuverability of the Winnebago Revel, Travato, Roam, Solis and Solis Pocket – all under 21 feet in length – keep you confident and ready for your adventures.

The Winnebago Revel, Travato, Roam, Solis and Solis Pocket stand out as options that help reduce the stress of possible size restrictions or concerns. Your typical pickup truck has an average length of around 17 feet, but an extended cab can reach all the way to a length of 21 feet.

The table below shows the exterior lengths of each of these maneuverable Class B camper vans:

ModelExterior Length
Winnebago Revel19′ 7″
Winnebago Travato21′
Winnebago Solis 59P19′ 9″
Winnebago Solis 59PX21′
Winnebago Solis Pocket17′ 10″
Winnebago Roam 59RB19′ 9″
Winnebago Roam 59RZ21′

Also, it bears to mention that the Winnebago Revel on the Mercedes Sprinter Chassis is narrower and easier to park than most sedans and pickup trucks, and the turning radius is remarkable for its size.

Because of the proven reliability of Winnebago Motorhomes, the decision to go with a Winnebago Class B coach is an easy one to make, but the added benefit of maneuverability while in-town driving makes the decision even easier.

The Class B models we have mentioned are easier to park, drive on freeways and navigate the narrow roads of RV parks than your typical SUV. You can have peace of mind when having to drive in heavy traffic or when visiting major cities in these models as they include many of the safety features you’ve come to rely on in your own personal vehicle.

Additionally, these models offer benefits inside the van itself. A Camper Van gives you the freedom to use it as a daily vehicle for parking, shopping, or running errands. However, now you can travel with a refrigerator stocked with cold refreshments, snacks in your pantry, a TV, and of course, a bathroom – something a family SUV or minivan does not offer.

Another question we often receive related to Camper Vans is “Will my Homeowner’s Association (HOA) allow me to park my Camper Van in my development?” This question does vary by HOA so you will want to review your specific HOA’s rules.
