Class B and Class C Motorhomes built on a Mercedes Benz chassis offer the comfort and style of European luxury cars and the convenience of traveling in an RV.
RVs with Mercedes chassis come in two motorhome types: the van-like Class B and the larger, truck-like Class C. Class B camper vans offer great fuel economy and are easier to maneuver and park. Class Cs feature more interior space and amenities, while being recognized as easier to drive than the bus-like Class A.
Mercedes Benz motorhomes are built by a variety of RV brands and manufacturers in various model types to ensure there is a floorplan to fit every RVers' camping style, from weekend luxury trips to full-time off-road travelers.
In this blog, we’ll discuss each type’s top features and floorplan, to help you find the right RV when you start shopping.

Plus, with a wet bath, campers don’t have to stop at a campground or rest stop to freshen up.
The Revel was constructed using heavy-duty vinyl flooring and running boards with ground effect lighting and rubber trim. The tinted dual-pane euro acrylic windows with cassette shade offer ample privacy when needed and help keep the interior cool by blocking the sun.
