Type A?????

In the October issue of Motorhome magazine there is constant reference to "Type" A as opposed to "Class" A. Did someone change the designation and I didn't get the email? I don't really care, just want to keep up with the times before it's too late. I always thought anyone who used "Type" A was either new or uninformed. Has it turned out that the latter is me?

It's still Class A in regard to motor homes. Type A refers to a personality trait. So a type A could own a Class A or a type B could own a Class C. There several scenarios possible (tongue in cheek).

You didn't get the memo?

Actually. it's RV PC. It might have been the RVIA.

They didn't want the Class B and C owners to feel inferior. Oops, I mean Type B and Type C. No I don't

There was an article some time ago that announced the change in designation.

Sheesh!

I'm definitely a "Type A" driving a "Class A" - probably not a good combination !

And it also looks like the message hasn't gotten to their website since they have one of their usual puff pieces on a "Class A" on their homepage. Or maybe it's just a "mis-type."

Sheeeeze!! Ain't there some kind of exemption from all this for us "old fogeys" who can't keep much of anything straight these days??

Now, let's see.....I'm A+, driving a Class (Type ?) A, but definitely NOT a Type A personality....so.....now a-days it's my inclination to try and simplyfy things....guess I'd best become a Type A personality....then all I'll have to remember is the letter "A"....yeah, that's it!!! So, to practice...........I DON'T CARE WHAT ALL OF YA GOT TO SAY I'M GOING TO BECOME A TYPE 'A' CAUSE ALL OF YA ARE WRONG, WRONG, WRONG AND I'M RIGHT!!! There, how was that??? Steve

Careful Steve...you'll blow a gasket and need some Type O, or A, or B or AB, or or positive or negative or .... ok. I see what you mean...

Well.. let's see. A Class A is a motor home that was designed from chassis up (And possibly down as well) to be "All motor home" it's bumper to bumper motor home, You One entry door serves both cockpit and living quarters and you can get up and go to the can in the rain without a raincoat.

A Type A: is a motor home with way more engine than it needs so it's very aggressive and always has to get there first. (Type A personality) it does not know how to be "Layed back" (Type b)

If you are now smiling.. Then this post has served it's purpose.
