Go to RV.org pay what they ask read their book and use their search engine and rating guide. Then go to oodle.com to search for what you want they will keep searching and email you results when ever they show up anywhere except craigslist.
I was all set to go with a C+ Dyanamax or Bigfoot in the 34-36' range but the prices were higher than I wanted to go. We got a 2002 36' Country Coach for a reasonable price and are very happy with that. But I'm still keeping my eye open for a Dyanamax on oodle.com

Class A's, though larger are ,as pointed out in earlier replies, are easier to handle(especially in high winds). May be more expensive, but unless you put on more than 20,000 miles per year, change your oil once a year. Tires typically last a lot longer. If you've read any of hte other threads on tires. Most still have original tires after 10 years. Replacing those tire isn't cheap, but for the longevity of the tires it seems worth it. With the aftermarket warrenties, it's possible to own an older coach with not a lot of worry of breakdown. Once you've ridden or driven both, you'll see that an A DP is a nicer ride to have.

Just my 2cents but the only reason I would buy a Class "C" instead of a Class "A" is because of $$$$. Most people buy what they can afford at the time and Class "C" cost less. If they would cost the same most would buy a Class "A" because they are bigger and better.

Class A DP
Better ride
More stable
Quieter cabin
Better views
Less maintenance (15K)
More power and torque
Better fuel economy

Before you write of C's take a look at the "super C's"

I have 450 hp / 1250 lbs. torque to push me around with no problems ... push, get it? All that noise and vibration is about 43' behind us, not right between us or just in front of us and, when that engine is working, going up hills and such, there is noise.

You also loose "living" space; the engine area is counted as overall length on Class C's. That can be a lot of area, especially in the super C's. In the end, though, it is what you perceive to best fit your needs and taste in motor home design. With that in mind, no one configuration is better than another!
