What Is the Difference Between a Class B Motorhome and a Camper Van?

As the largest Winnebago Dealer in the country, we are often asked “What is the difference between a Class B Motorhome and a Camper Van?” And the answer is…they are one and the same! Other terms to describe these RVs include Adventure Van, B Van, and Class B RV just to name a few.

Class B Vans have become one of the biggest trends in travel, as they can take on both bustling cities and off-road, off-grid treks. These RVs are built on a standard full-size van chassis, making them easy to maneuver and great for fitting into nearly any campground or parking spot. Their size is perfect for any outdoor enthusiast. Some Campervans are able to sleep up to 4 people so the entire family can join the adventure!

Winnebago has always been a leader in the RV industry, so it is no surprise that they also command the Class B market. With five models and 10 floorplans, it is easy to find the best Camper Van to meet your needs. The RVs are available on two different chassis: the Winnebago Solis, Winnebago Solis Pocket, and Winnebago Travato are built on RAM ProMaster Chassis, while the Winnebago Revel and Winnebago Boldt are built on Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van Chassis. Winnebago’s quality designs combined with the reliable performance of these two chassis helps transform compact vans into luxury homes on wheels.
