Class C Motorhome

The Class C (mini) Motorhome provides many of the luxuries and conveniences of a Class A Motorhome in a scaled-down and less expensive unit. They are built on an automotive van chassis designed expressly for the Class C.

The Class C Motorhome has most of the features of a Class A in a generally smaller unit. It has ample living space and at-home amenities, and is perfectly adaptable for week-end getaways or extended vacations. With it's cab-over bunk and rear bedroom the Class C offers more sleeping accommodations than a Class A, which makes it attractive for larger families.

Many Class C Motorhomes now come with a slide-out in the living/dining area, and some even offer a second slide-out in the bedroom.

Like the Class A, passengers are free to eat, watch TV, play games, take a nap and use the bathroom. But unlike a Class A, driving a Class C sometimes feels more natural, since it is basically a modified van. And although not as common as a Class A, many Class C owners tow a smaller vehicle behind, for use while set up at camp. The towing capacity is generally less in a Class C, however.

For those with larger families or those with a slightly tighter budget, the Class C Motorhome may be the RV for you.
