Mini Motor Homes
Mini motor homes are also known as Class C Mini motor homes.
They are one of the most well-known types of motorized recreational vehicles.
They are the ones commonly noted for not being so big like the Class A, but not so small like the Class B, making them ideal for an average group or family.
Since it introduction in early 70’s, the mini motor homes are popular. Mini motor homes have remained as the favorite for family vacations and holiday getaways on wheels because of its comfortable, not so big but not so small size.
They are also deemed safer than the other motor home types perhaps for its cockpit construction, which features a frontal crush area and all steel cage that offer protection for the passenger and the driver in a rollover situation.
The Cockpit Design of Mini Motor Homes
The cockpit design is one particular feature that makes the mini motor homes an ideal choice for a holiday getaway on wheels. It is this design actually that sets Class A and Class C motor home apart each other.
As you may know, the Class A motor home considers the cockpit design as one of its major weaknesses, the reason that most holiday trekkers these days consider the mini motor homes than the Class A for its relative crashworthiness.
What distinguishes the mini motor homes from the other types is its general appearance. Usually, a mini motor home comes with a sleeping bunk on top of the cab which can be used as additional bedroom or as storage room when not used as a bedroom.
Also, it is built on a cutaway van chassis, meaning that the complete front of the motor home is constructed general the same. As a result, the mini motor homes appear like a pickup truck or a van.
The mini motor homes, however, share a common feature with the Class A type in terms of slide outs. Yes, the Class C provides such wonderful feature. The slide outs in fact provide additional space for the passengers.
The slide out can move a portion of the motor home’s exterior wall outwards as much as 3 ½ feet, and this is what allows more space for the sleeping, dining or living area, as well as for the kitchen. And, note that this slide out can be moved at a touch of a button. That high-tech!
Placement of Television
The brilliant placement of the television in the room is another thing that makes the mini motor homes safe and comfortable for a life on the road. In this type of motor home, you will generally find the television mounted in an entertainment center in the cab, just over behind the cockpit area.
You could also find it placed off to one side in the mini motor home’s living room. This television placement is what also sets the mini motor homes different from the Class A where the TV is often mounted over the driver’s and the passenger’s heads in the cockpit.
The mini motor homes or Class C mini motor homes now provide many of the same comforts and conveniences as the other motor home types provide. So, the Class C or mini motor homes could no doubt be the ultimate answer for those who may be looking for a unit that can accommodate family for hiking, camping, or fly fishing.
