Total up your checkmarks for each group and read on for your results.
 
Mostly Group A: Travel Trailers
 
If most of your checkmarks were in Group A, a travel trailer would likely best suit your lifestyle. Since travel trailers don’t have much space, they are a great option for people who plan to travel alone or as a couple. These trailers are not ideal for families or if you plan to host a lot of overnight visitors. What travel trailers lack in sleeping space, they make up for in set-up time, because they require practically no set-up at all.
 
A travel trailer would best suit an outdoor adventurer because there isn’t much living space. And since storage and living space are limited, travel trailers probably wouldn’t be suitable for families.
 
Mostly Group B: Expandables
 
An expandable trailer gives you all of the benefits of a travel trailer, with a bit more sleeping space. For that reason, an expandable might be suitable for a small family, or for those looking to host some overnight visitors from time to time. That being said, most elements remain the same as with travel trailers, including the lack of living space, so be aware that even if you’re travelling with your family, an expandable may really only be suitable if you intend to spend almost all of your time outdoors.
 
Mostly Group C: Fifth Wheels
 
The fifth wheel is the most versatile RV because it’s perfect for just about anyone: families, couples, retirees, and social butterflies. The fifth wheel offers some living space, limited storage, and of course sleeping. It also comes with a  few more amenities than expandable or travel trailers such as microwaves, TVs, and A/C.
 
Fifth wheels suit those who are looking less for adventure and travel and more for an RV community where they set up shop for the season. For families, this may mean access to swimming pools, playgrounds, and social activities too. An often overlooked but very powerful benefit of fifth wheels for families is that they do offer some storage, so it may help reduce packing time and needs when you’re doing weekend trips back and forth to the trailer all summer. Things like sunscreen, bathing suits, life jacks, bikes, towels and more can be housed at the fifth wheel for the season for convenience.
 
Mostly Group D: Motorhomes
 
Motorhomes make the most sense for people who want top-of-the-line amenities, lots of living, storage, and sleeping space, and don’t have access to a tow vehicle. Motorhomes tow themselves! They’re suitable for all types and families because they come in a range of sizes.
 
Motorhomes are excellent for those who are looking to travel a lot, or long distances because they function as a home on wheels. For those who plan to drive for days to experience new locales, a motorhome is a great option! One driver can rest while the other drives, without having to stop. And, if you’re travelling with pets, they can be on board in comfort the entire time instead of stuck in a crate or a car.
