How are Class C's measured?

I was just wondering how the length is determined on Class C's? Do they measure bumper to bumper, or from the rear to the end of the living area?

Measured bumper to bumper - subject to conditions. If you look at specs, the actual length varies based on the chassis. I have a Ford chassis on a Minnie Winnie and the specs show it is 1.5 feet longer than the same model on a Chevy chassis.

Are you sure about your Ford being longer than the Chevy. I believe in most applications the Chevy is 4-6 or so inches longer than the Ford.

Never mind I see that you have a 1993 Minnie Winnie. The specs show the two models offered with the Chevy, in your year, are one foot shorter than the same models on a Ford. The newer Chevys are longer than the Fords.

I think a lot is what the manufacturers see as a niche. I think the 42 is named in order to fit to a limit in some states regarding operators license.

Our KZ41 is 43'10". Measuring one day to find out the total length of the rig I measure from the front bumper of the truck to the 5 wheel and then from the pin to the back bumper of the trailer. It turns out it is exactly 41' from the pin to the back bumper of the trailer.

Our 42QD is 42'11". I am guessing they just rounded down. This way I think I got 11" for free. Now if they would have named it 43QD I would have complained they shorted me!!! LOL
