Many models also feature double beds at their rear, which runs across the van’s width. If owners are taller, they may have difficulty in fitting inside. As such, it is also essential to check out the dimensions and layout of a motor home, first before purchase.

The third axle has become known as the tag axle. They are a lot more spacious though it could be tricky to drive because of the twin axle at its rear.
A-Class Motor Homes – this type are very big and recognizable because they do not have a detached cab area. Models of this type usually have big front windscreens, like those in buses.
