WHAT??!!

What is the proper spelling ... Motorhome or Motor Home?  Motorhome is the most common spelling on the internet. However; dictionaries spell it "motor home" 2 separate words. Texas RV Disposal tries to utilize both spellings to reach everyone looking for our service.

Motor Home or Motorhome ??!!

Why is a Class C Motor Home - Motorhome bigger than a Class B? You would think that a Class B motor home would be the next size down??  But they are not.  When motor home first came out they were either large Class A's or small class B's. Class C's are in between a Class A and Class B in size and typically in price. They came after the Class B's.

What is a Class C Motor Home - Motorhome? A Class C Motorhome is actually the second largest in size.  The Class C category came along after Class B. Class C Motor Homes are generally built on 350 or 3500 van or light truck chassis. They range in Length from 20 to 28 ft typically. There a a few more customized frames that stretch to 2 feet.

What is a 5th Wheel Travel Trailer? A 5th wheel is not to be confused with a gooseneck.  A gooseneck is actually like it sounds ... the neck of the trailer protrudes forward and down in the pick up setting on and latching onto a ball hitch. A 5th wheel is the large flat hinged plate hitch on the back of an 18 wheeler that a trailer, with a pin, slides into and latches. So does a 5th Wheel travel trailer have this same system. You must have a pick up or truck with an bed that can hold the 5th wheel hitch to pull this type of trailer.  As an RV, the 5th wheel pin protrudes into the back of the pick up over the tail gate thus creating a a bi level floor plan inside the unit that you step up into it.  5th wheels are generally larger that bumper pull specifically because of the the 5th wheel.  The weight distribution allows the pick up to pull more weight allowing for more amenities and for the unit itself to be longer. Which they can be 40 feet in length. Sleeps 6 - 10 people.

Texas RV Disposal disposed of this 5th wheel for a Louisiana Client.
It looks great but it needed $35,000 worth of repairs.

What is a 5th Wheel Gooseneck Adapter & Why use it? Gooseneck hitches mounted in the bed of your truck take up much less room and they are more common and can be used to pull any gooseneck trailer.  Many gooseneck hitches are hidden below deck in the bed of a pick up or flat bed.

This adapter works great, current pricing is less than $500.00 and weighs about 50lbs.

What is a Bumper Pull travel Trailer? Bumper Pull Travel Trailers are generally what people are talking about when they say "travel trailer". A bumper pulled trailer can be pulled with a 150 / 1500 pick up and larger. Some feather lite travel trailers can be pulled by a large car. A bumper travel trailer is generally built lighter so it can be pulled with light duty trucks.  So it is not built as well as a 5th wheel or a Motorhome. It has a standard trailer hitch that fits onto a ball attached on the bumper or on a towing package. The advantage of a bumper travel trailer is that the bed of the pick up is still available for hauling other items. Travel Trailers can be 14 feet in length all the way up to 36 feet in length with 30 feet being the most common.  Sleeps 4 to 8 people.

What is a Destination Trailer?  A Destination Trailer is almost exactly like a standard bumper pull travel trailer except it is taller, built a little heavier and is generally more durable with a few more amenities.

Are there any advantages to a 5th wheel over a bumper pull? Stability and control is number 1. But what gives you this stability and control is the weight distribution is better for the vehicle pulling the trailer than pulling a bumper pull trailer.  The fifth wheel, like a goose neck hitch, is located directly over the back axle which so the weight is on the back axle instead of the back of the vehicle on the bumper.

What is Pop Out or Slide Out? A pop out or slide out is a room addition that can be electrically moved out to make the room it is in larger.  A typical pop out or slide out is 3.5 feet to 5 feet in depth adding 3.5 to 5 feet x its length of the square footage.  They must be fully retracted when transporting and pop outs/ slide outs are notorious for being points of leaks. Pop Outs / Slide Outs are available in all Classes of motor homes, 5th wheels and bumper pull travel trailers.

What is a Pop Up Camper? A Pop Up camper is generally a single axle / single wheeled trailer that has a camper with a station bottom and sides.  The sides are generally 2 feet to 3 inches in height.  The "pop up" portion can be made of canvas with poles to support it when it is up / open or it can have collapsible fiberglass rigid walls and roof.  Either way it generally takes 5 to 15 minutes to have it up and usable. Pop Up campers are generally 14 to 16 feet in lenth. Sleeps 2- 4 people.

Both of these pop up campers were hauled away by Texas RV Disposal. 
The setup unit was hauled away because the Clients HOA told him he couldn't
keep it at his home and would have fined him heavily if he didn't comply.

What is a Pick Up Camper? A pick Up Camper is a typically hard shell unit that slide into the back of a pick up (you generally want a 1 ton dually but single wheels will work) that has the bed located in a upper part that protrudes over the cab of the truck.  It can have a dining table that makes into a second bed, sinks, fridge, stove and even a small bathroom. Sleeps 2- 4 people.
