Class B RVs are the smallest class of drivable RVs that you can own. However, some of them can extend to lengths that make them less nimble than one might desire. If you are looking for a smaller Class B motorhome, it’s good to stay under 20 feet in total exterior length. Many would consider this length to be perfect for staying small enough to make traveling easy while providing plenty of living space.
In this article, we’ll look at 11 great options of Class B RVs that come in below 20 feet in total length. These include the following:
|StoryTeller Overland||Classic MODE 4X4||19′ 5″|
|Pleasure-Way||Ascent TS||19′ 5″|
|Roadtrek||SS Agile||19′ 5″|
|Airstream||Interstate 19||19′ 5″|
|Pleasure-Way||REKON 4×4||19′ 5″|
|Roadtrek||Simplicity SRT||19′ 7″|
|Pleasure-Way||Ontour 2.0||19′ 8″|
While all of these options are below 20 feet in total length (bumper to bumper), some of them come with a steep price tag. It’s the price you have to pay for such a convenient package that allows you to live life to the fullest. Total length is the main concern of this list and these are 11 great options currently on the market that fit the bill. Let’s look closer at each model.
Note: this is not an exhaustive list but serves to outline some of the best options you’ll find if you are in the market for an RV of this size. The list is ordered from shortest to longest in total length.
1. Pleasure-Way Tofino
Total Length: 17′ 9″
The most affordable Class B on our list is the Pleasure-Way Tofino. This RV is built on the RAM Promaster chassis and the 2022 model has an MSRP of $78,650.
This small motorhome has a pop-up roof for extra room. The overhead bunk area creates another sleeping space and gives additional height to the van allowing you to move around more comfortably within the living space. The design of the interior is simple, clean, and functional.
The Tofino is a great van for someone who wants a small RV that can travel around easily. It is not only the shortest RV on our list but also the most affordable option that you will find on the market. The van utilizes a low roof design but the pop-top gives additional height to the van once you are parked and set up.
It features all of the necessities that you would expect including a kitchen with induction stove, sofa area that converts to a queen-size bed, a lounge area via the front swivel seats, and plenty of storage.
Overall, this is a great small RV that has the uniqueness of the pop-top with an overhead bunk. You’ll have no trouble driving it anywhere you want to go.
2. Thor RIZE
Total Length: 17′ 11″
The RIZE is a very small Class B motorhome that is built on the RAM Promaster chassis. At just under 18 feet in total length, you’ll have no problems maneuvering this RV around. You won’t have to worry about parking or feel intimidated when driving it. However, just because it is one of the shortest RVs on this list, doesn’t mean the living space is cramped. It is actually well designed and has a living space that won’t leave you feeling cramped.
This motorhome features a super comfy lounge/dining area and also includes two front swivel seats. The lounge area converts to a bed and is plenty roomy enough for two people. A van this size needs some creativity for it to work out and they have done a great job at setting this interior up for an enjoyable living experience.
It’s available in two floor plans with the 18M featuring a bathroom and the 18T excluding this feature. Both come standard with 190 watts of solar on the roof.
Both floor plans are very affordable with the 18T starting at $76,000 and the 18M starting at $84,375.
3. StoryTeller Overland Classic MODE 4X4
Total Length: 19′ 5″
The Classic MODE 4×4 from StoryTeller Overland is an off-road machine that happens to have a nice living space! It comes in at just under 20 feet so the small size of the van helps it to go places that larger ones can’t.

Like most Class B motorhomes, you’ll find all the essentials included for a comfortable stay while on the road. Perhaps the most unique feature of this RV is the indoor shower. This creative design allows you to store the shower away when not in use and then turn it into a full-sized shower when ready. You can take a shower with you wherever you go and it won’t take up any room in your living space.
The Classic MODE 4×4 has a starting MSRP of $157,747.
4. Pleasure-Way Ascent TS

It does contain a wet bath which includes a sink with a faucet and a shower. With a wet bath like this, you are forced to take a shower in the same room that the toilet is in. Some people like this but others find it difficult to manage.
However, if you are expecting these types of luxurious features in a Class B RV, it is often compromises like this that you will need to make peace with. This RV comes in at an MSRP of $155,805. It’s quite a price to pay but if you are looking to go small and have premium features with a well-thought-out layout, this is the price you will have to pay.

The Roadtrek is another Class B RV built on the RAM Promaster 2500 Chassis. It uses the 159″ wheelbase model and comes in at just under 20 feet in total length. It uses the same chassis that I used for my van build and this is a great size if you want to remain nimble and fit easily into parking spots.
This RV features a fixed bed which isn’t seen as often in a small RV like this. Rather than having to convert the bed from a lounge area or vice versa, the bed is always in place and ready to use. It also comes with ample storage underneath the queen size bed.
It also has a wet bath so you can stay clean on the road. Many people don’t care for having a shower in something of this size but I wouldn’t be without mine.
10. Pleasure-Way Ontour 2.0
Total Length: 19′ 8″
The Ontour 2.0 is similar to the Ascent TS but it is a tiny bit longer. At 19 feet 8 inches, it adds three more inches to the total length of the Ascent TS. This RV is set up almost identical to the ascent TS but it is built on the Ford Transit chassis rather than the Mercedes Sprinter. It uses gasoline rather than diesel and comes in at a lower MSRP of $136,305.
This RV has a huge amount of headroom at 78 inches tall. This is plenty of room for those who are taller than average. It can accommodate someone comfortably that is 6 feet 5 inches. Similar to the Ascent TS, the Ontour 2.0 also has an electric sofa that converts to a queen-size bed.
It also features a wet bath, swivel seats, and all of the other essentials that you would expect in a capable class B RV. It also features rear and side screen doors to keep all of those pesky bugs out which is a great additional feature to have. I know that having the bug screen on my van has been one of my favorite upgrades. It has made the experience much more pleasurable out on the road.
11. Thor Sanctuary
Total Length: 19′ 8″
The Thor Sanctuary is a capable 4×4 RV that has a small footprint. It is built on the Mercedes Sprinter chassis and is designed to take you off the road. There are two floor plans to choose from with the 19L having a fixed bed and the 19P having a convertible bed/lounge area.
Both floor plans include a wet bath so you’ll be able to keep clean without leaving the van. However, the bathroom is quite small so larger people will have a difficult time with it.
It comes standard with 190W of solar on top that will help keep your 400Ah of batteries charged.
The MSRP for the 19P is $148,680 and the MSRP for the 19L is $151,060.
Finding a class B RV below 20 feet in total length is quite easy. With more and more people choosing to downsize and make do with smaller spaces, manufacturers are taking hold of the trend. There are plenty of them on the market if you are willing to pay the hefty price that they often demand. Of course, you can usually buy these motorhomes for less than the MSRP.
While these class B motorhomes demand a premium price, they come with so many benefits. The small size may take some getting used to but being so flexible in your travel is the main benefit. With less than 20 feet of total length, you will simply blend in with other vehicles rather than requiring additional space and driving consideration like you would a much larger RV. This benefit alone is why I like class B RVs over other types.
While other types of motorhomes will give you more space, staying under 20 feet will make it seem as though you are in a standard vehicle and make it so much easier when deciding where to go, which roads to take, and places to park for the night.
