Generally, these are the most expensive and the largest among the RVs. They are built on another manufacturer's chassis and buses. It can accommodate 2 to 8 people and comes complete with furnishings and living systems.

These are vans that have been converted to suit the needs of its owners. They usually have a raised roof (17 to 20 feet), pop-up tops and slide-out sections.
