The C or Super C designation is generally accepted as applicable to those units that utilize a cab provided by the chassis manufacturer to which the "box" or "house" is added by others. The Super C term is applied to those that use a medium or heavy duty truck chassis in their construction. In that regard, it appears from the photos on the Powerhouse Coach website that, regardless of price, these fall under the Super C designation as defined above.

It's got a truck front, built on a truck chassis. That makes it a Super-C, no matter what they want to call it.

It's just like some housing developments doesn't allow smaller houses to be built even though they can cost more. Rules are rules no matter what you do in life.

But hey ... I'm not a buyer of a motorhome priced in this range, so not sure my opinion matters that much anyway

A big advantage to the Super C, like Powerhouse, is their cargo weight capacity and their towing capacity. They'll carry much heavier loads and generally are rate to tow 25,000 lbs where your average Class A gas is 5,000 lbs and most DPs are 10,000 with some higher end coaches at 15,000. They can also be easier to service and work on the engine than your typical A. I don't know why some of the "A Only" resorts don't allow at least the high end Super C. But then, I'm not an owner in any of these resorts.
