Best RVs of 2021 honored in free, online magazine

In recent years, RVBusiness Magazine (RVB) has named one “RV of the Year” and four finalists along with a series of “Top Debuts.” Winning one of the awards is a big deal for a manufacturer.

The publication is doing things differently this year. The past year, after all, has been anything but normal. Neither of the national-scale trade shows at which RVBusiness ordinarily reviews many new models were held in 2021 due to the pandemic. So the industry-leading trade journal shifted its gears.

“Instead of singling out one RV of the year and four finalists, we’re recognizing what our staff and contributors consider the best of the best for the new model year,” said RVB publisher Sherman Goldenberg.

He noted that this year the publication is highlighting – in no particular order – “RVB’s Top 10 RVs of the Year” along with 24 “Top Debuts” and another 32 “Must-See” units.

Lucky for RVers, the publication is available free online, providing another valuable tool to anyone researching the purchase of a new RV. For others, it’s just good reading – a way to keep up with what the RV industry’s most highly regarded trade journal considers the best new models of the coming year.

I'm the founder and publisher of I've been a writer and publisher for most of my adult life, and spent a total of at least a half-dozen years of that time traveling the USA and Canada in a motorhome.


  1. looks like it is mostly based on bells and whistles-glitz and glamor-how does owner satisfaction, manufacture warranty satisfaction to the owner and lack of problems enter into this rating?

  2. Obviously they don’t get out of Elkhart. The Vanleigh Beacon, Vilano and Pinecrest are the best of the best. No, I don’t work for them but we do have a Vilano.

  3. The comment about doing a major overhaul every 4 years in product offerings sounds like change for the sake of change’s sake. We have a 2006 Tiffin Phaeton diesel pusher and while we look at all the new floor plans and and added goodies. We can’t find a better floor plan that suits us and what we do-Jack Russell dog trials .AND we don’t have $380,000.00 laying around to replace something which get’s the job done.

  4. The introduction of the hatch door is encouraging. I’d like to see more companies jump on the Class C toyhauler band wagon. I like the Thor Outlaw 29S with the side opening because it would be so convenient when traveling with dogs. The price point for the quality is an issue for me. More options would be a good thing.
