How many RVs in this photo? Depends on who you ask.

What is an RV?  Easy question, since you either own one or are considering which type will best suit your RVing lifestyle.

But is it that easy?  For instance, the Good Sam Club Buyers Guide lists the following types of RVs (and who would know better?):

Non-motorized versions include travel trailers, fifth wheels, folding camping trailers and SURVs. (which is like an SUV)  Then there are the Motorized RVs, which the Buyers Guide breaks down into Class A Motorhomes, Class B Van Conversions, Class C Motorhomes, Truck Campers and Custom Coach/Bus.

But is that all … and are non-motorized vehicles RVs?  On the Wikipedia website, there is a good argument made for 4-Wheel-Drive vehicles being considered RVs.  Apparently SUVs are often used as RVs in Australia.

Then there is another entry in Wikipedia arguing that park models on wheels are RVs.  Well, maybe. They also show the definition,” Recreational vehicle or RV is, in North America, the usual term for a motor vehicle equipped with living space and amenities found in a home.”

I would think that anything on wheels and used for recreation qualifies as a “Recreational Vehicle.”  As for the term “vehicle,” since states license travel trailers, fifth wheels and other towables under their Department of Motor Vehicles or a similar title, they are officially vehicles.

There are a few other directions that this blog could go, like discussing travel trailers used as construction-site offices.  Or, the historic question, “Were the pioneers who crossed the Great Plains in their Conestoga Wagons our RVer forefathers?”   And I don’t like thinking of the “recreation” that goes on in those million-dollar buses that transport rock stars on concert tours!

But I’m going to wrap it up by saying that lucky for all of you Virginia RV lovers out there, it doesn’t matter what you consider to be an RV or not, we’ve got all kinds of them at Safford RV:  Class A Motorhomes, Class B Conversions, Class C Motorhomes, Truck Campers, Fifth Wheels, Toy Haulers, Folding Campers, and Travel Trailers.

And if you want to pretend you’re RV-ing in Australia, you can head up the road to our sister store, Safford Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Fredericksburg, and we’ll take care of you there too.  🙂  G’day, mate!
