But, with a little searching, you can find the perfect Class A. We’ll even make it easy for you: The following well-equipped Class A motorhomes can be had for $250,000 or less. And, though that’s not exactly a small sum of money, these motorhomes provide a lot of bang for the buck.


Coachmen

Coachmen Mirada 35OS Class A motorhome exteriorThe Mirada 35OS keeps buyers happy outside and in. The exterior entertainment center means twilight movie time, while the propane hook up for a barbecue grill will help keep moviegoers well-fed. The 20-foot awning features integrated speakers for the outside TV; the speakers are also Bluetooth-capable and can be connected to a smart device. Exterior pass-through storage compartments provide room for all your camping gear. Once inside, opposing slides in the living room provide plenty of space for entertaining. The large sofa, theater seating and oversized dinette all make it easy to watch either of the two living-area TVs (one of which is a 50-incher). Ample counterspace, a residential refrigerator and pantry help you feel at home in the galley area, while the bedroom closes off from the rest of the motorhome and features a walk-around king bed with end tables and charging ports on both sides, plus nearby plumbing and wiring for a stackable washer/dryer.Coachmen Mirada 35OS Class A motorhome floorplan
