the "house" portion of the motorhome would be very similar to your TT. appliances, plumbing, furniture, electrical, and household construction and repair are similar. the electrical would be more complex as motorhomes likely will come with a generator and an inverter. some of the appliances may be of higher grade too (on demand water heater vs traditional heater, residential fridge vs rv fridge, etc). but for the most part, the house is the house.
you will need to add the complexity of the motored chassis to the mix. maintenance of the vehicle side of the equation. if you worked on cars, this will make sense and you will learn quickly here about your chassis.
beyond floorplan, above the deck (the living space), different class a's have different storage floor plans below the deck as well.
diesel motorhomes are usually the "creme de la creme" of the rv world so they will come with all sorts of bells and whistles that you need to understand and figure out if they are important to you and your lifestyle. all these extras do come at an additional price. check out what the maintenance costs are for the different components too.
go visit the dealership lots to tour as many rv's as you can...
