Perhaps you are new to RVs and Campers, or maybe it’s just time for you to make a change. Whatever the case may be, there is a specific Camper and RV out there for your needs and for just the right price.

So, what RV and Camper companies offer the most affordable prices? With lots of time and research, I have found that Jayco, Forest River, and Winnebago offer some of the most reasonable prices on the market for RVs and Campers.

You must first find the type of Camper or RV that suits you needs before looking at price. Listed below are 21 examples of what you may be looking for and their current prices on the market today.

Pop up Campers:

Pop Up Campers are great if you don’t have a lot of space for a trailer. Pop Up Campers can easily be folded up at a moment’s notice while still allowing you the comforts of home.

Jayco 10SD Jay Sport

Price: New: $14,430

Used: $9,500 – $10,000

Description: The Jay Sport Pop Up Fold Down Tent Camper comes with a five-year warranty that extends to the tents and roof, floor, lifter system, frame, and bed platforms.

The Jayco 10SD can sleep five at a length of 13ft. and includes a stereo with the internal and external speakers.

Worth the Price? Yes!

Rockwood A213HW High Wall

Price: New: $16,000

Used: $12,000

Description: A visit to the Forest River Website will allow a person to choose from many floor plans including the A213HW.

Rockwood HW277 High Wall

Take a look at the inside of the Rockwood HW277

Price: New: $23,000

Used: $12,000

Description: Just as the model mentioned above, the Rockwood HW277 includes what is listed under Forest River’s “High Wall” Package with a few other perks.

This particular model also contains a lifter system and more windows that offer natural light than other High Wall models currently being offered by Forest River.

Worth the Price? Yes!

My Recommendation: Jayco 10SD

All of the models here offer many of the same features. However, if you are low on funds, Jayco is a trustworthy brand that will give you exactly what you are looking for.

Teardrop Trailers:

Teardrop Trailers are really cool. They’re super lightweight and offer just enough space for you and your significant other to spend the night away together. These trailers are also well known for the small carbon footprint they leave behind for the environment.

Hiker Highway Deluxe Trailer

Price: New: $5,295

Used:$3,000

Description: When visiting the Hiker Trailer Website, a person is given the option to “Build a Hiker”. One is given the option to design the trailer style and color among other features, so price may vary.

Some features included in the Deluxe Trailer Package are 14″ Steel Wheels, Safety Chains, 2000 lbs Axle, Manual Roof Vent, etc.

Worth the Price? Yes! Because a person is given the option to create their trailer, they have the opportunity to checkout the cost and find what works for them.

Classic Timberleaf Teardrop Trailer

Price: New: $19,750

Used: $12,000

Description: The perk behind purchasing one of the Timberleaf is not only that it is fully insulated, but extremely lightweight. The Timberleaf Classic claims a totally unique design to make your trailer stand out.

Worth the Price? Yes!

Airstream Basecamp

Price: New: $44,000

Used: $35,000

Description: When taking a look at the Airstream website, one will be given the option to look at the floor plan for the Airstream Basecamp.

This Teardrop Trailer only sleeps 2 people at a time, yet claims to be able to adapt to whatever one may need. The Airstream basic also boasts to be “built for adventure.”

Worth the Price? No. For this price, one would expect a little more from this trailer than the Timberleaf and Hiker trailers.

My Recommendation: Timberleaf

Not only is the Timberleaf’s design more attractive than the other two, it feels as though a person is getting what they have paid for. For a little extra cash, a person is getting something that will last and that will definitely keep them cozy and warm all night long.

Toy Hauler Trailers:

These trailers are pretty much the same thing as a Fifth Wheel with one minor exception – they have a huge garage.

With one of these, you can basically haul just about anything you want, whether that be a Motorcycle, an ATV, or even a Snowmobile. Depending on the size of your garage, your Toy Hauler can haul it all.

Eclipse Attitude Wide Lite 28iBG Toy Hauler Travel Trailer –

My Recommendation: Fuzion 429

For this model, a person is getting almost the exact same thing as they would be getting for the 424. As such, a person is also getting a slightly newer model that can carry whatever is needed in the large garage.

Fifth Wheels (RV):

Fifth Wheels are something to consider before you go and buy an entire motorhome. With a Fifth Wheel, one has the option of attaching a tractor or another trailer with the hitch on the back.

Heartland Big Country 3902 FL-

Used: $70,000

Description: Just like the Primetime Crusade mentioned above, the Big Country 3902 FL includes a similar setup in the living area with 3 sets of theater seats and a built in entertainment system with fireplace.

However, this model features a bedroom with its own master bath and half bath.

Worth the Price? Yes!

My Recommendation: Forest River Cardinal Luxury

While all of these models seems to be nice enough, there’s a reason Forest River’s model won Best of Show.

For this model, a person wouldn’t be paying for something too cheap or too pricey. What I really prefer about this model over the others is just how much counter space a person really gets.

Class C Motorhomes:

Class C motorhomes are distinct in that they aren’t quite like a Class B and Class A motorhome because of their overhead sleeping compartment above the dashboard and driver.

Winnebago Minnie Winnie 31D –

Price: New: $106,000

Used:$81,000

Yet, the exterior contains a storage space of about 95 Cubic feet. altogether.

Worth the Price? Yes, the price is reasonable for such a small motorhome. A person would be getting exactly what they paid for with this nice model.

Worth the Price? Yes!

My Recommendation: Forest River

In my opinion, Winnebago is one of the best manufacturers on the market. However, their model was just too small this time around. Forest River offers plenty of space and optional add ons for a whole family to be comfortable on the road.

Class B Motorhomes:

Class B Motorhomes are generally known for being the cheapest option when picking between a Class C, Class B, or Class A Motorhome. They do not offer a lot of space, but still include all of the essentials like a kitchen and bathroom that one may need throughout one’s camping experience.

This model also claims a smooth ride on the road and a luxury kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom area among other features.

Worth the Price? No, while it’s good to be comfortable especially when camping out, this particular model just hasn’t caught my eye as much as the other two. The exterior however, is rather attractive.

My Recommendation: Winnebago Revel

Winnebago is a brand that comes highly recommended in general. However, with the Revel, you are getting just a little bit more than you would with the Travato for a higher price – but for a price that won’t break the bank.

Class A Motorhomes:

Class A Motorhomes generally have the most amount of storage space out of any of the choices of Motorhomes. They are also the most luxurious of the three. If comfort is your thing, a Class A Motorhome may be the way to go.

Thor Palazzo Class A Motorhome 33.2

Price: New: $233,850

Used: $185,000

Description: A really nice feature for the Thor Palazzo is its automatic generator start. This model also features a great Solar Charging System as well.

The layout for this motorhome is great, giving a person plenty of space to to camp out and relax. Buying this motorhome will also give a person access to a washer and dryer when need be – a really needed feature for motorhomes.

Worth the Price? Yes!

Winnebago Grand Tour Class A Motorhome

Price: New: N/A

Used: $266,000

Newmar Dutch Star Class A Motorhome

Price: New:$371,751

Used:$246,000

Description: One of the standard features of the Dutch Star is a wheelchair lift on the exterior. However the interior does offer theater seating with included reading lights. Also offered is a power lift for the bed tops.

Worth the Price? No. You could definitely find a motorhome that features much more and that is a little cheaper than the Dutch Star.

My Recommendation: Thor Palazzo

Overall, this motorhome seems to have everything a person may need under one roof fora great price. No one will be paying over 300 grand for less features. In the Thor Palazzo, a person will find room to breathe and enjoy their trip.

Overall Impressions

In all reality, prices are going to vary depending on 3 main factors.

  • Type of RV/Camper
  • Manufacturer
  • New or Used

Whatever your needs may be, look for something reasonable that falls within your price range.

Winnebago, Forest River, and Jayco all come the most highly recommended with the most reasonable prices and best quality overall. I would recommend you consider purchasing an RV or Camper from one of these three brands.
