What is a Class C Motorhome?
Class C RVs are motorhomes that are the perfect blend of the larger bus-like Class As and smaller van-like Class Bs. They are easily distinguishable because of the over-cab bunk or storage space. The Class C is built on a truck chassis and typically ranges in size from 20-33 feet.
It is larger than the Class B campervan, offering more interior living and storage space and can include more features such as a private bedroom, larger bathroom and more space in the kitchen for preparing and cooking meals.
The Class C is smaller than the Class A motorhome making it more affordable with better fuel economy and is easier to drive. Although they are smaller than the Class A, they are still packed with useful amenities and features every camper can appreciate.
