I have a saying:

"It doesn't matter what you camp in, you are having just as much fun."

travel in a coach

There are many different definitions for the word "coach". The term coach generally refers to the transit of groups of people. Railways still refer to passenger carrying cars as "coach cars". It was used to describe a horse drawn carriage or stagecoach. It is also used to describe a class or category of transport seating, as the airlines do today. A coach has come to mean a bus, or a conveyance for transporting many people. A camper is usually something you tow, a trailer, or a cab-over camper that is put on a truck. People don't actually travel in a camper while they do in a coach. The term coach seems to still be evolving however, 5th wheels are often called coaches even though you should never ride in the back of one. At least that's how I understand it. If you disagree with me, feel free to "coach" me on where I have gone wrong.

When does a motorhome become......

When we started "camping" in our 1939 Chevy in the early 50's with a tarp used as a "lean-to" we called it a "camper". When we bought our first Holiday Rambler (towable) it was a "camper" and so on up through the motorhomes to what we have today. To us they have all been "campers" because these were what we camped in. Also when in conversations with non-campers, the word "camper" sounds better than "motorcoach" and saves a lot of explaining to people who don't know the difference and you don't sound like a snob (not that it makes any difference to us).

Like the other posters, it's whatever you personally want to call it.

Good Luck.

Becker

When describing to someone I need a lot of space to turn around or park I will use the term Bus. That they understand. I never refer to my rv as a Coach. Seems a bit uppity to me and I am still amazed I am actually driving one of these coaches. I never forget where my wife and I started. On our honeymoon we camped in a borrowed tent. That said I have never encountered and uppity Coach owner. Like any home owner we like to tell about the features and show off the inside (if it is spotless), cuse the wife gets miffed when I invite strangers in to ooh and ahh. Heck, I never meet any strangers. There's the fridge, while you're in there bring me one too. Welcome aboard. Oh yeah, my land yacht or tour bus. Whatever.

I opened the JAR, reached in and turned ON my PORCH light, so I could illuminate my PATIO awning area, adjacent to my LAND YACHT, a.k.a. my COACH, a.k.a. my MOTORHOME, a.k.a. my MONEY PIT, a.k.a. my CAMPER, a.k.a my RIG.

PLEASE LORD, tell the freekin' moderator to lock this thread!!!

Simple actually, it becomes a coach when the owner calls it a coach!

Call it whatever ya want,it is still just a motor home, wife calls ours a camper. If you feel the need to try to impress someone then call it a coach. My thinking if it cost less than a million it is still a motor home.jmo
