B+ Forum

I'm feeling lonely here. No B+ forum. My Rvision van cutaway is listed as a B+. Maybe someone could open up a forum as they are getting more popular.
Thanks, Ted

Thank you for the suggestion. B+'s are discussed in the Class B Forum.

Actually, per the RVIA there is no such RV class/type as a B+. If the OEM van body is replaced with a wider one, it becomes a type C. A B+ is merely a small C, no matter what the marketing folks like to say. The use of a custom body on a van cutaway chassis is exactly how the Class C is defined, and that's how a B+ is made. There are plenty of C's that are relatively short (21-22 ft) and have something other than a bunk in the cabover area (entertainment center, storage, etc). There is really nothing unique about a B+ that distinguishes it.

This article tries to make a case for defining a B+ as something different, but it's only minor changes in floor plan features.

Class B Plus Motorhomes: What Are They?

There was a similar attempt some years back to describe the Super-C models as a Class A, since they were really big, had diesel engines, and lots of amenities like an A. But they failed the basic RVIA test: no custom cab & body as with a Class A coach. A Super-C uses a standard cab and tacks a house body on behind it, so it is by definition a C, not an A.

Just looked at the Class B forum and see a total of 9 people in there. That compared to the 174 in the class A forum. Getting even more specific with a B+ forum,, i'd bet it would be lonely in there.

I'm here.
I have a B+.
I know it is technically a C.
When I was researching I didn't want a over the cab bed.
When I searched for Class B+, I was able to find exactly what I wanted.

Maybe they should call B+'s C-.

We have a Pleasure-Way XLMB.

We don't have a bunk over cab either, early on our Aspect was considered a B+, but generally now considered a C.

Holiday Rambler 29PBT B+

The DW and myself really do like our HR B+. the only major difference I see between my unit and other Class C is the lack of any basement storage. There is one external compartment on the rear right side that shares with a interior closet and one on the left side that have any size, all the rest (4) have a 6" x 18" door. This may be due to floor is one level from the front to the back .
The over all size of this MH does allow us into most all state parks with all most all the benefits of the larger MH.

A cabover bunk is NOT a distinguishing feature of a class C - plenty of them lack a bed of any sort up there. For example, none of the Winnie Trend, Aspect or View floor plans have a bunk in the cabover. Further, several Class C brands/models have an option to substitute and entertainment center for bunk in the cabover - even the big Jayco Seneca.
