Are you shopping for an RV that can accommodate your whole family with towing by a conventional half-ton truck? The 2022 Coachmen Apex 256BHS – available from Vernon Recreational Products in BC – and the 2022 Highland Ridge Range Lite RL242RL have a gross weight under 8,000 lbs. However, the Apex is better suited for big groups that prefer to explore in comfort.
The main difference between the Apex 256BHS and the Range Lite RL242RL is sleeping capacity. The Coachmen model can accommodate six guests with the front queen mattress, rear bunks, booth dinette that converts into a bed and a sofa. The Highland Ridge, on the other hand, can only lodge four people comfortably with its rear tri-fold sofa, queen mattress and convertible booth dinette.
The Coachmen Apex also has a more functional floor plan suited to families. The rear bathroom provides extra privacy and is close to the bunks where children often sleep. Additionally, the primary bedroom shares a wall with the kitchen and is fully enclosed with a door, making it the perfect retreat for a restful sleep. Comparatively, the Highland Ridge Range Lite features a dual entry bathroom that leads directly into the front queen bedroom, which isn’t ideal when travelling with friends or family.
Enjoy weight savings without skimping on features and space in the 2022 Apex 256BHS. Stop into Vernon Recreational Products in BC to tour this Coachmen model or inquire about availability, pricing and financing.
