5 Reasons to Make a Class A Your First RV
Sitting high atop the captain’s chair looking out a panoramic wrap-around windshield (you’ll find that on all Class A Entegra Coach models) with several hundred horsepower behind you is sure to make anyone excited for their next trip, and rightfully so, Class As are the kings of the road. It’s why we go to great lengths to engineer ours with premium ride and handling gear.
While we're proud of our original lineup of diesel pushers, we've also expanded our Class A lineup to include luxurious gas coaches as well.
Here are some of our top reasons you should make a Class A your first RV.
1. You want a home on the road
While large travel trailers and fifth wheels can certainly stake a claim to the “homey” description, it’s hard to rival the living areas and sleeping capacities of Class A motorhomes. These coaches can offer the same comforts and conveniences of small apartments and then some—think multiple TVs, zoned heating and cooling, tall ceilings, tile floors and electric fireplaces. They make traveling with furry friends easy too!
2. You want to travel in luxury
Spacious coaches also allow for full-sized showers and refrigerators, king-sized beds, a washer and dryer, multi-person seating areas, plentiful counter and closet space and custom décor—luxuries on the road to be sure. These units are also being built with serious technology, including app-based controls and monitoring, making it easier to manage a large unit’s systems and features.
3. You plan to take long trips, and maybe ones without predetermined destinations
With features like those already mentioned, hitting the road for weeks at a time, or even longer, is really no chore at all. This kind of coach also provides the freedom to change course on a whim, to visit a site a fellow traveler raved about, take in local-recommended events or visit an old friend you didn’t realize was in the neighborhood.
4. You want to be able to get up and go
With the right packing and storage arrangements, it’s very easy to hit the road quickly. There’s no need to hook up a tow vehicle and setting up camp can be done quickly with the push of a few buttons thanks to auto-leveling, power awnings and mobile apps.
5. You love to drive
Sitting high atop the captain’s chair looking out a panoramic wrap-around windshield (you’ll find that on all Class A Entegra Coach models) with several hundred horsepower behind you is enough to get some excited about a trip—and rightfully so. Class As are the kings of the road. It’s why we go to great lengths to engineer ours with premium ride and handling gear.
Watch this quick video for an idea of why we like to say our luxury diesel Class As are the quietest riding, best handling coaches on the market today. Period.
Some features described may not be available on all Entegra Coach models.
Class A Frequently Asked Questions
How much can a Class A RV tow?
Diesel-powered Class A RVs can typically tow between 10,000 and 15,000 pounds. Gas powered Class A RVs typically tow between 5,000 and 10,000 pounds. Always verify a Class C motorhome’s tow capacities and equipment in your owner’s manual before hitching up.
What is the difference between a Class C and Class A RV?
Class A motorhomes are built on large, specialized chassis and have squared off body that resembles a bus, with residential amenities. Class C motorhomes are built on a truck or van chassis with the distinct cab overhang and with many of the same features of a Class A on a smaller, less luxurious scale.
Who can drive a Class A RV?
There are a handful of states in the U.S. that require a form of commercial driver’s license (CDL) for vehicles over 26,000 pounds or 45 feet in length. Most Class As top out at 45 feet long but can weigh well over the weight limit. Some other states may require a non-commercial license or endorsement based on size.
