Regular unleaded (85 or 87 octane) is all you need. They're not designed to be high performance sports motors which require higher octane fuels.
A class A motorhome refers to a motorhome that is construced on either a commercial truck chassis or a commercial bus chassis. A class A motorhome also resembles a bus due to its flat front end and large, flat windows.
In simplest terms, the Class A motorhome uses a single body with a flat nose - they're often built on bus chassis, while a Class B uses a second body which is attached to the cab, and the cab has a hood which extends out from the front. Even a Class 8 truck (such as the Freightliner Columbia or Volvo VNL series) which is made into an RV is still a Class B motorhome.
Deciding which class of RV is right for your family can be quite overwhelming. If you’re trying to choose between a Class B and Class C Motorhome, there are still several things to consider from size to weight and special licensing. Class A motorhomes are large and luxurious, Class B are compact and easy to maneuver, while Class C motorhomes are a well-rounded, in-between option. A new Class B motorhome can range anywhere from $130,000 to $190,000, whereas buying used you will only spend between $20,000 and $100,000.Whereas a new Class C motorhome can range anywhere from $110,000 – $160,000. Buying a used Class C is more affordable, ranging from $20,000 to $100, 0000.
Although the actual amount of people that can fit into a Class C motorhome depends on the actual model, there is usually enough seat belts to seat 8 occupants.
A class C motorhome, also called mini-motorhomes, is just a smaller cersion of a larger motorhome, with the convienience of a much lower price than the larger model.
It's not a matter of state law - it's a matter of federal law. A passenger vehicle designed to transport more than 15 persons (including the driver) requires a CDL with "P" (passenger) endorsement. What class you need depends on the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of the vehicle. If it's a single vehicle with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 26,000 lbs. or less, then a Class C CDL with P endorsement is required. If it's a vehicle pulling a trailer, and the Gross Combined Weight Rating is in excess of 26,000 lbs., then a Class B CDL is required is the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of the trailer is 10,000 lbs. or less. A Class A CDL is required if the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating exceeds 10,000 lbs. For just a bus with no trailer and a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating in excess of 26,000 lbs., a Class B CDL with P endorsement would be required.
Motor home classification is determined by body type, not by weight (tare or gross). A Class A motorhome is simply a single piece body with a cab forward design... the chassis can range from anything from a Class 2 van chassis up to a Class 8 bus chassis.
The price for a typical Class C motorhome ranges from $50,000 to about $80,000 depending on its size. However, the more luxurious motorhomes is more expensive with prices as high as $85,000 to $140,000.
The biggest advantage of a Class A is that there is no engine hump. Class A can be safer in case of a collision. It is more spacious and generally bigger.
If it has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 26,000 lbs. or less, a Class C CDL. If it has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of more than 26,000 lbs., Class B CDL. In both cases, a passenger endorsement is required.
