Only 1 layer of musce:myocardium.

If you put a needle from the outside of the heart/left ventricle to inside you'll pass : pariertal pericardium,pericardial cavity,viscelral pericardium(epicardium),myocardium,endocardium, lumen

So, LV and RV have only 1 layer of muscle? Just difference in their thickness?

Yes the pulmonary circulation,which is driven by the right ventricle is a much lower pressure circulation than the central circulation,which is driven by the left ventricle. So it is logical that the myocardium of the right ventricle doesn't need to be as strong and thick as the left ventricle.
