Smallest length of class A diesel pusher

Hello. I am contemplating purchasing a Class A diesel pusher motorhome. I have not yet narrowed down the make/model etc. However, I am limited in length. I think the maximum I can go is about 33'. Any longer and I won't be able to fit it on my driveway. I haven't been able to find a DP that short. Does anyone know if anybody makes them that short? This is my first time posting on this forum, but I have been a lurker for a while. This site has a ton of great info. Thanks for the help

Seems to me that 36' is about as short as you can go for a DP due to the engine/trans length and weight distribution.

Fleetwood just came out with a 33 ft. It is the 33 ft excursion. On the front cover of the new motorhome magazine.

There is a 33' Fleetwood pusher on the cover of July's MotorHome mag. Winnebago and Holiday Rambler have them in that size and even a little shorter.

33' will seriously limit your choices. The Tiffin Breeze might work at 32+ but seems under-powered IMO at 200hp Cummins (I haven't driven one yet).

Thor's Palazzo is about 35' with a 300hp Cummins. Looks like a decent entry-level unit, but is new on the market this year. I drove one Sat. handles well and good power response. A little light in a stiff cross wind, but not hard to hold. We too are looking for a shorter Class A ( up to 36-37). and will be following your thread for more insight.

Winnebago's Journey 32 & 34 models are an excellent choice.

If, and that is a big IF, you can find one, Country Coach made a 32' with a 400 Cummins optional

Thor Palazzo 33.2 is about the sweetest small DP I've seen.

2013 Palazzo Motorhomes: Class A Diesel RV by Thor Motor Coach

The Numerical designation is a little misleading, it's 34 1/2' long overall, according to the specs.

You absolutely have to be 33' or less bumper to bumper?

Dons is right. I have seen 2, great coaches very limited when made and now highly sought after.
Good luck in your SeaCat.
