Choosing a new Class C - Websites?

We're starting to look for a used class C. After a year with our Jamboree, we now know what we REALLY want, but there are so many models out there... Our 'must have' features:


Short - about 25 foot is our target
Slide out
Bed with two side access - Full to Queen size mattress. NO 'corner' beds!

Ideally, it would auto-level, but that's not a deal breaker.

Are there any sites where you can plug in your specifications and get a list of RVs that match? (And if you have Class C suggestions that match our must have's, we'd love to hear them!)

The only rig I have seen that meets these two requirements is the full/queen bed inside a rear slide-out. I forget who offers it, but it is built on a Sprinter chassis.

If you are okay with setting up a bed and tearing it down daily, then consider a full/queen built into the wall behind the dinette called a murphy bed.

It seems the rear bedroom floor plan with a front-facing, walk-around bed for two, without a slide out, has long been discontinued for most brands. It did require a minimum of 28 feet.

Motor home manufactures have been placing the bed facing sideways in a slide out. Sometimes they fold up, other times they stay flat but block cabinets when closed up. The benefit to the side-facing slide out bed is gaining a wall full of cabinets with a mirror, and often a TV. The shortest I ever seen was a B+ Phoenix Cruiser model 2700 measuring 27'-1" over-all length without consideration for the rear outside ladder. CLICK HERE to watch a walk-through video of one that was for sale some time ago.

Look at the Thor Axis 25.2.

Small class A on a E450, class C chassis. Rear slide with queen size bed with two side access.

Thanks for the replies! The Thor Axis looks promising. From another group, we've also learned about the Thor 22B - they come in a number of model varieties like Four Winds and Chateau, but basically have the same floor plan, with a slideout at the back that includes a queen bed. They also vary on the base - some are on a E-450 chassis, others on the E-350; so researching we need to determine which base they are. The Axis slide extends out of the back, while the 22B plans extend out to the side.

This has been very helpful! Thanks for the responses.

Ford quit supplying the E350 for a couple of years while some emissions issues were worked out. They have started bringing the E350 back so some manufacturers have once again started using the E350 instead of the E450 on certain models and floor plans. The Thor Axis is a good example. Some floor plans went from E350 to E450 and are now back to the E350.

Although it was 28 foot the Forest River Sunseeker/Forester 2860 had 2 slides with walk around queen bed. They also have a 24 foot the 2440 with a queen bed. Our first class c was a 2860 and we enjoyed it for a number of years before going class A.

Our Thor 24F is 25' bumper to bumper on an E450 chassis. Full side slide makes a large interior.
