Not sure what type of RV you own? Or maybe you're confused about the filtering system on Camplify? Read our explanations of the different RV types / classes.


 


CARAVANS


A 'caravan' on the Camplify system includes both full-bodied and pop-top varieties. Refer to the following images as an example of each:

Pop-top Caravan:

HYBRIDS


The signature feature of a hybrid van is its ability to expand internal living space by having fold-out beds at the front and rear of the van. A favourite with families, this innovative RV type is compact when towing and amazingly spacious when set up. Depending on the layout and sizing option, the larger models will comfortably sleep up to eight people. A common hybrid caravan is the Jayco Expanda. See the following examples:

POPTOPS


Pop tops are often confused with hard floor camper trailers and pop-top caravans -- and understandably so! To make it easier for you to understand what Camplify means by 'Poptop', see the following example:

CAMPER TRAILERS


Camper trailers are generally lighter and more compact than pop tops and caravans. There are two different types -- hard floor and soft floor. Soft floor camper trailers fold out onto the ground, while hard floor camper trailers fold out and remain off the ground. See the following examples:

FIFTH WHEELER: 


A fifth wheeler (5th wheeler) van is generally much bigger and heavier than other caravans. Due to it's weight and size, these RV types are hitched further towards the front of the tow vehicle. A special type of tow vehicle and fitting system is required. See examples below:

C-CLASS MOTORHOMES


Camplify classifies a C-Class motorhome as one that can be driven with a normal C-Class driver's licence. Campervans also fall into this class. See two examples below:

B-CLASS MOTORHOMES


Camplify classifies a B-Class motorhome as one that requires a LR (Light Rigid) driver's licence to operate. B-Class vans are usually built on a truck chassis and are larger in size and weight than C-Class motorhomes. See below for an example:

A-CLASS MOTORHOMES


Camplify classifies an A-Class motorhome as one that requires a MR (Medium Rigid) or HR (Heavy Rigid) driver's licence to operate. A-Class motorhomes (also known as 'Coaches') are typically built on a bus-type chassis and are the heaviest and largest motorhome class. See below for an example:

TENT CAMPER:


Camplify classifies a tent camper as something that cannot be driven or towed. Rooftop tents also fall into this category. See below for examples:
