Best Class C for full-timing?

Hi all,

I've been living full-time in a 2002 Newmar Dutch Star, a 41-foot diesel pusher with all the comforts of home, including a washer and dryer.

I now would like to downsize to something smaller -- in the 30-foot range. I realize I will have to give up on some things but have a "Must Have" list:

1. Tub - or large shower to install one
2. Oven - I bake
3. Interior height over the standard 6'5" - the higher, the better
4. Two slides
5. Desk area
6. HWH auto-leveling system
7. Inverter
8. Quality of course!

I've narrowed my search down to Winnebago/Itasca. My budget is less than $50k.

Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

Thank you.

I think it's going to be hard to find a tub or large shower, or interior height above 6'5" in a 30 foot class C

I have found a few Class Cs with an interior height of over 6'5".

I can understand why the OP is seeking guidance! We have a Class C and at one time or another looked at nearly every Class C manufacturer still in business. I can't think of anyone that has anything close to the OP specifications for $50K or used. There might be 1 or 2 options for a custom order for $125,000 and up ... perhaps Nexus RV or some of the Super C RVs. Best of luck in the search.

FWIW If you have found some with a high ceiling then that is the one's you should be deciding how you can live with.

One person or two? For one I have seen some pictures of interesting modifications in the rear to make an office with a narrow bed or sleep in the overcab.

For a bathtub room is an issue, water is an issue, hot water is an issue. You won't have enough of any of them.

Thank you to all who replied.

I have looked at several Class Cs -- Itasca, Winnebag, Jayco. Many have the high Interior Height -- ranging from 6'8" all the way to 7' -- but not all of the other items I need as I live in my motorhome full-time. Some have ovens, some don't. Some have HWH, some don't. Some have large showers, some don't.

It looks like a small Class A will fulfill most of my needs.

Best regards,
