2018 Readers’ Choice Awards

MotorHome Gold Readers' Choice Logo

The votes are in for your favorites of all things motorhome

The campfire is a great way to end a day of RVing, reliving the events of the day with s’mores, music and even story time. But, as the chatter continues, chances are the subject will eventually turn to favorites, as in “What’s your favorite motorhome?” or “Where’s your favorite place to visit?” Now, we all have our favorites, and debating them while the flames lick at the toes of our boots beneath the stars is one of the things that makes motorhome life so fine. That’s why we ask our readers every year for their favorites of all types of motorhome-related subjects, from vehicles to accessories to electronics to dining facilities. And while your own opinions may vary, we can offer you at least a starting point for the next fireside discussion. So, grab a drink, stoke the fire, pull up a camp chair and relax. We’ve tallied more than 6,300 entries and, without further ado, present the winners for MotorHome’s 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards.

  1. Once again this not a comparison vote. NOBODY can compare most of the products as they have only purchased one of the products. It just means you like what you bought. Yes you can compare restaurants and different toilet products, but, who can afford to compair tire minder systems or better yet who can compare class A Motorhomes? I’d also like to see the actual vote numbers for transparency. Just because 3 people voted dose not make it a good comparison. Buyer beware.

  2. It does mean more people bought that product and were satisfied with it. But nowadays I think people research their purchases much more thoroughly than they did in years past because of the ease of communication now days
