At the events I participate in I have heard so many times that I'm a GM man but I had to buy the E450 becuase there wasn't any other choices.

You "now" have a choice.

DriVer at this time. None of these MH's are found on the new Chevy/Workhorse, or at least not posted on there web sites. Hope they offer a choice.

You may want to look at the Fourwinds line. They have both makes and many models. We went with a 24T and are very happy with the room.

Tom and Bonnie, I have to comment about the overhead. One of the main reasons why I didn't want to go to a Class C was because I was afraid I would hate that big thing sitting over my head. Well, after deciding to get our Jayco I found a few very interesting plusses regarding that overhang!

First, having driving class A's for many years I noticed immediately that the cab area stayed MUCH cooler and comfortable! The dash air is all we needed even when travelling through Phoenix this summer in 100+ degree weather.

We find that while vision is hardly affected, need for sun visors is almost totally eliminated.

Both of these were very welcomed surprises- and partially because of them we have grown to really love our coach.

I guess my point is that eliminating the overhang is most likely limiting your floorplan options. You might want to try driving both and see what you think from behind the wheel (as your 'nagavator' tries out the co-pilot seat). You just might find that you won't fee so claustrophobic as I had feared I would feel.

Good points Skip. We found the same thing - overhang eliminated need for sun visors (other than to hold up the privacy screen) and the a/c does work very well up front. For us, however, having a son who travels with us at all times, the cab over bed is super super super. Our son loves it as it is so big it is like he has a room of his own.

I drove a class C back in the 60's before we bought our first MH. A Class A.

I was used to driving trucks. I felt like a turtle in its shell looking out driving a class C.

This is one eason why we want one without the cab over hang. We like the floor plans we have sean without so far.
