If you are looking into to get into a Class B motorhome but have a limited budget, our list of five of the best cheap Class B motorhomes has got you covered.
When thinking about getting a motorhome, there are several considerations. If you want big and luxurious, you go to a Class A motorhome. If you want something smaller, but still need bunk space, a Class C is for you. For folks looking for a smaller, compact motorhome with limited sleeping area, but with all of the modern conveniences of a motorhome, a Class B RV is a great choice. Built on a cargo or Sprinter van platform, a Class B motorhome is perfect for 2-4 happy campers. It is a highly mobile platform that drives like a regular vehicle, takes up less space and holds its value well. They can be pricey, but they don’t have to be. Here’s five good but cheap Class B motorhomes that you’re sure to like.
The Hymer Aktiv can sleep up to four people comfortably. It is built on the Ram ProMaster van platform with a Pentastar VVT 3.6-liter 6-cylinder engine and the whole RV is less than 20 feet long. Inside you’ll find a convertible dinette and a small bathroom. You’ll also find cool standard features like an LCD TV with DVD player, kitchen area, GPS navigation and a rear backup camera. The suggest retail price is $94,669. Like all of our Good But Cheap lists, we did some internet searching and found the Aktiv Base available for less than $67,000.
My personal favorite Class B on this list, the Winnebago Revel is a truly special RV. Built on the Mercedes 3500 Sprinter platform with the 3-liter V6 diesel engine, the four-wheel drive Revel is built for adventure. Yes, it is a four-wheel drive Class B motorhome. You can get the Revel with BF Goodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires mounted on beadlock wheels for rugged driving conditions. It is loaded with GPS, Sirius XM radio and a flexible bedding system that will sleep up to four. If you’re looking for an awesome RV to go anywhere you can imagine, the Revel is for you. Best of all, while the MSRP is $134,799, I found a few online for around $90,000. But if you want one, snap it up fast; they don’t last long at dealerships.
The RoadTrek Simplicity line was designed with the idea that you don’t have to spend a lot to get into a truly nice Class B motorhome. Another Ram Cargomaster chassis, the Simplicity is built using the 3500 platform with the Pentastar 3.6-liter engine. The two captain’s chairs swivel around and have a table for eating and relaxing. The rear of the RV is a convertible dinette. The Simplicity has an expanded galley kitchen for gourmet cooking while on the road. The Roadtrek will sleep up to three people, but is best suited for two. It has an MSRP of $83,677, but as you might guess, we found them for under $68,000 online. That’s enough to get included on our list of the best cheap Class B motorhomes.
Built on a Mercedes-Benz platform, the Galleria uses the popular Sprinter van 3500 chassis with a 3-liter, V6 diesel-powered engine. This motor is legendary for its reliability and performance. The Galleria has a full galley kitchen, a wet-bath shower and bathroom, and a large dinette area. A third swiveling captain’s chair adds options for comfort and relaxation. The Galleria sleeps two comfortably and is a great motorhome for touring the continent. It has an MSRP of $144,235, but makes this list of cheap Class B motorhomes because we found them online for well under $95,000. Not bad for Mercedes Sprinter Class B.
Simple and to the point, the Axion from Carado is a great and cheap Class B motorhome for two people. Built on a Ram Promaster 1500 platform with a Pentastar V6 gas engine, the Axion not only saves you money by having a lower cost, it’ll get great fuel economy for traveling around the continent. It has a wetbath shower, basic kitchenette and generous storage. The sofa converts to a sleeper. At under 18-feet long, the Axion will fit into smaller spaces and will feel like driving your car as you roll on down the road. The Axion has an MSRP of $73,462 but we found them for well under $50,000 with ease.
