Chassis & engines on Class Cs vs Class As

Most Class Cs I look at seem to be on Ford setups. This raises a question in my mind. Are the design of Class Cs different than As. For instance, can you get a Class C coach with the combo of [workhorse chassis + Vortect 8.1 engine, + allyson tranny] ?

Class A's had many different engines and chassis gas or diesel. If you want a class c with something different look a super C's

You can get some lighter duty Chevy Class C chassis with the GM 6.0L engine and likely their current 6 speed transmission. However for bigger Class C's they will come with a Ford chassis and the V10. I think it is called Super C's that use a F550 chassis or similar medium duty truck chassis. There are some older Super Class C's with the chevy 8.1 and Allison.

Class C and A's are vastly different. A Class C is a van chassis and is a lighter duty package. Class A's range from 18K LBS chassis (maybe slightly smaller) to 30K GCVW gas chassis. Then you can get into the diesel pusher territory that goes to higher level of GCVW. Ford F53's seem to be very popular and the most abundant.

NOPE. Workhorse never made any class c chassis. There was a Chevy made 14050 GVWR cutaway chassis that was "branded" as Workhorse, but it did not include an Allison tranny.
