Combing through a list of the best Class A motorhomes is an exercise in luxury. These are the best of the best when it comes to RV living.

You’ve no doubt heard the expression, “go big, or go home.” When it comes to motorhomes, those in the Class A category go big and are home – a home on wheels, that is. Class A motorhomes are the largest category of motorized RVs on the market. Often built on a motorcoach, large truck or custom frame, they are often similar in size to commercial buses. Inside, however, they are as different from a bus as could be. Most are well appointed with luxurious furnishings. These are not the cheapest form of RV living, but when you want to travel in style, Class A gets top marks. Here are five of the best Class A motorhomes available for 2018.

2018 American Coach American Eagle 45A

If you’re going to go big, might as well go in style, too. It doesn’t get much better than the American Eagle 45A from American Coach. This is luxury at its best, with perhaps the nicest main cabins you’ll find anywhere. Three big slide-outs add to the space and only the very best furnishings make this the top Class-A machine on the road. Powered by a 600-horsepower Cummins I6 pusher engine, this motorhome is ready to go anywhere you feel like exploring. GPS navigation, two bathrooms and just about everything you can imagine, including the kitchen sink.

2018 Thor Motor Coach Tuscany 38SQ

Thor is the mighty God of Thunder, and apparently, a maker of some of the best Class-A motorhomes anywhere. The Thor Tuscany comes in at just under 40 feet in total length and four slide outs expand the space of this beautiful home on wheels even more. A large master suite provides excellent sleeping quarters for you, while convertible sofa sleepers provide comfy accommodations for your guests. A 450-horsepower Cummins diesel pushes the Motor Coach down the open road and to anywhere you can imagine going.

2018 Tiffin Motorhomes Phaeton 40 IH

The Tiffin Motorhomes Phaeton is one of the top selling Class-A motorhomes in the industry. Four big slide-out sections, two bathrooms and a great balance between luxury, modern design and convenience make this a great home on the road. Tiffin says that with the Phaeton, you’ll live life to its fullest at every mile. With options like an on-board generator, central vacuum system, and a home theatre sound system, it’s easy to see how you can do just that.

2018 Forest River Legacy SR 340 34A

With the Forest River Legacy, look at your RV purchase as a reward for all of your hard work. As that reward, the Legacy is exactly what you want in one of the best Class A motorhomes. New for 2018, the Legacy adds a three slide-out floorplan with theatre seating options, making for some additional comfort. Forest River has also reworked the bathroom to give you some additional comfort and privacy. The suspension system has been improved for a more comfortable ride and the RV has a new on-board generator and is pre-wired for solar panels, too.

2018 Newmar New Aire 3341

The Newmar New Aire is not your typical Class-A motorhome. It was designed from the ground up to be a completely different take on the idea, and packs all of the luxury and amenities of a larger motorhome into a smaller compact design. Riding on a technologically advanced chassis and sitting on full air suspension, the New Aire offers the most comfort while rolling down the road; and, thanks to automatic steps, it is one of the easiest RVs to get in and out of. Four slide outs and a split bath that separates the master suite from the rest of the RV give space and privacy where needed.
