Are you planning to rent a motorhome in New Zealand but don’t quite understand the terminology? Here is a quick guide to the meaning of a berth in a motorhome. A berth is often described as a fixed bunk to something that is used for transportation. The term “berth” is a more flexible term due to the different types of motorhomes there are. The best definition is that a motorhome berth in New Zealand is a sleeping space for someone.

Beds Versus Sleeping Spaces

Motorhomes usually can sleep anywhere from two to eight people, depending on the type of class it is. Most motorhomes have fewer beds than there are sleeping spaces.

For instance, although there may only be one or two beds, they may have fold-out sofas or other areas to sleep that allows for more people to sleep in them.

Each class has a different way of conveniently incorporating many possible sleeping spaces in one motorhome.

Class A Motorhomes

These motorhomes are typically the most expensive and luxurious. These motorhomes have berths that come from converted dinettes and lounges as well as beds.

Class B Motorhomes

These motorhomes are known to not include above cab beds. The berths come from double beds in the rear of the vehicle.

Class C Motorhomes

These motorhomes are known as coach-built motorhomes. These typically have a double bed above the cab to make up its berths.

Popular Berth Motorhomes

There are motorhomes for any size family. Below are the most popular ones with how many berths they provide:

The Trigano Tribute

This motorhome has two berths perfect for a couple or two individuals, depending on your personal preferences.

The Chausson

The 02 has a double and a single bed that makes three berths. This works for a three-person family or friend group.

The popular 03 has six berths consisting of a double bed over the cab, a bunk bed in the back, and a convertible bed from a dinette table.
