You’ve been hearing it for months — this year has forced us to do things differently. Because the pandemic put our beloved national RV shows on hold, RVBusiness took a different approach to roll out their Top 10 RVs for 2021.
This year, instead of crowning one “RV of the Year” and awarding four finalists, RVB asked their staff and contributors to highlight their top 10 RVs for the year. They also included their picks for Top Debuts and Must-See units.
Here, in no particular order, are their Top 10 RV picks for 2021:
1. Alliance RV Paradigm 390MP
This full-profile, fifth-wheel trailer from Alliance RV is aimed at full-time and extended-time RVers. Its wide body provides incredible storage space and livability that really resonates with the high-end, full-time consumer.
2. Dutchmen RV Yukon 400RL
A high-line, fifth-wheel trailer from Dutchman RV offers ample storage in its five zones — the exterior, living area, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. It has 200% more drawers than the average fifth-wheel for added convenience and luxury!
3. Fleetwood RV Discovery LXE 36HQ
Fleetwood’s RV introduced a unique feature to the RV industry — an island kitchen in a class A motorhome. With that, you can also expect all the luxuries of a Fleetwood RV, from Whirpool appliances to an exterior entertainment center.
4. Forest River IBEX
This travel trailer is good for those looking to have a base camp to accompany them on all their outdoor adventures. Forest River built the IBEX trailer to be able to endure more climates and navigate more terrains than ever before.
5. Palomino River Ranch 390RL
Palomino’s RV combines all the best features of a fifth-wheel, motorhome, and travel trailer. The key selling point is its single-level living — meaning no interior steps to climb for those who can’t or don’t want to climb them to get from one area to another.
6. Grand Design RV 346 FLS
This Grand Design RV goes against the typical fifth-wheel layout of its size, putting the living area up at the front. Not even 38 feet, this trailer looks and feels much bigger than it is.
7. Jayco Jay Feather Micro
Jayco’s Feather Micro trailer is a lightweight model, making it towable by just about any vehicle. This small, single-axis series offers five different floor plans, all of which are under 4,000 pounds.
8. Keystone RV Montana 3231CK
The most notable feature of this 37-foot RV is the counter space, functional storage, and ample windows available throughout the floor plan. This spacious design in a trailer of this size is unique to the Keystone RV.
9. Newmar Canyon Star
Newmar Corporation reinvented the concept of a Class A diesel front-engine chassis. This RV is reportedly more powerful, fuel-efficient, and durable than most gasoline RVs like it and is also quieter, easier to handle, and less costly.
10. Winnebago Hike
The Winnebago Hike is ready to go off-road and off-the-grid. It is built with the outdoor adventurer in mind sporting features like racks to haul kayaks, bikes, and other gear and an additional gear box.
