Small Motorhomes: More Popular Than Ever!


2012 Winnebago View

Small motorhomes are more popular than ever for two main reasons: Many baby boomers, who traveled with large towable RVs or sizable motorhomes are downsizing to small motorhomes.  They no longer need large RVs for their families and they want the ease and convenience of a small motorhome.  And, first time RV buyers often choose small motorhomes because they’re as easy to drive as an SUV, which makes people feel more comfortable with their first RV experience.

The Winnebago View (pictured above) has a Mercedes diesel engine on a Sprinter chassis and gets 17 miles per gallon!  It’s 24 feet long and sleeps 5 to 6 people.  There are two floorplans available in this aerodynamically styled class C motorhome.  The interiors feature “multi-functional pieces, user-friendly technology and loads of comfort”, says Winnebago.

Also on the Sprinter chassis with a Mercedes diesel engine is the Four Winds Siesta motorhome.  It’s also 24 feet long, sleeps 6 people and is available in 2 floorplans.  Both the Four Winds Siesta and the Winnebago View have slide-out rooms.

The benefits of having a Mercedes diesel engine on a Sprinter chassis are that the motorhome gets excellent fuel economy, it’s easy to drive, it’s easy to park, and with a short wheel base, it’s easy to turn.  And, the Mercedes diesel engine is dependable and safe.

The ERA by Winnebago, on a Sprinter chassis with a Mercedes diesel engine, gets 17 to 18 miles per gallon!  The ERA is fully self contained, sleeps 2 people and can seat 7 people!  Many people enjoy it for traveling with children, who can watch TV, use the bathroom or have a snack while someone is driving.  And, when the ERA is parked, with the generator powering the roof air conditioner and the microwave oven, a family can comfortably stop and enjoy a meal.  It’s also ideal for traveling with an elderly person who may want to rest during the trip.

Small motorhomes with gasoline engines are good options at more moderate price points.  Our most popular is the Four Winds Class C 23U (23 feet).  With a very functional layout, it sleeps up to 6 people with a rear bed, a U shaped dinette that converts to a bed and a cabover bed.

The 19 foot Four Winds Class C motorhome also has a very functional layout, especially for a motorhome that size.  There is a good sized kitchen area across the back.  The bathroom features a large stand-up shower.  Sleeping areas are the dinette which converts to a bed and the cabover bed.  As with all of these small motorhomes, it’s easy to drive around town and easy to park.

If you’ve enjoyed RV camping but your large motorhome or 5th wheel is a little more work than you want, you should consider downsizing to a small motorhome that you might find easier and will use more often!
