Like others, I had a Class C before recently moving to a Class A. We went to a Class A for several reasons;

- Better layout (driver and passenger seats are part of the living area)
- Better view from windshield while driving
- More storage space inside and outside of motorhome

My only drawback is I find it a little harder to drive (staying within the lane). Something about sitting on the engine instead of having the engine in front of you to assist keeping the motorhome within the lane. However, the more I drive it, the easier it is getting.

We couldn't decide either until we rented a class C. The ride wasn't near what the ride is in a class A and we were looking toward a 32'. Ended up with a 38' class A and love it. I was scared of class A until I got used to it.

More and more folks are choosing the Mega-C's; 45 foot Track Conversions.

For those interested look at Showhauler, Hallmark, and Renegade websites.

Some people go beyond the 45' conversion and right to the big boy

Luxury Motor Coaches by PowerHouse Coach

Saw this coach about 5 years ago and still dream about getting one once I win the lottery.

X2! We've been on 2 caravans that included C's and one very small A, without leveling jacks. All of the owners were bellyaching about not getting a level site about 2 weeks into the trip.

FYI; There are several different sizes of Class C's:

C: Most often based on the Ford E-450 chassis

Super C: Medium Duty Truck (MDT) based on the same size rigs that local delivery trucks use; About 200-350 HP

Mega C: Heavy Duty Truck (HDT) based on the same rigs driving cross-country; About 450-600 HP

Automatic Hydraulic Leveling Systems are normally seen on the Super C and Mega C classes.

It's all personal preference. Those that have A's justify their purchase just as those that have C's justify theirs. There are always pro and cons in any decision. Remember, not better or worse, just different. Choose what you feel is right for you.
