If it is a high quality Class C you seek take a look at the lineup from Nexus RV. They sell factory direct only, no dealers, at very competitive prices. They feature solid one piece fiberglass roof and end caps, heated tanks, quality innerspring mattresses, electric awning, incredible cabinetry, top of the line appliances to name just a few of their many high end features. The fit and finish of their line needs to be seen to be truly appreciated.
We looked at dozens of C's, many referenced above and none of them came close to the quality of our Nexus Phantom 23P. It has the Ford E-350 Chassis with the 6.8L V-10 married to the 5 speed (full Tow/haul mode), transmission and came with a 55 gallon fuel tank.

Fleetwood built that, probably with Holiday Rambler name on it, looks like they left a few items off compared to my Jamboree. No spare, no ladder on the back. Several other things left off also compared to a Fleetwood Jamboree or Tioga.
We have a Forest River Lexington, and think of it as smaller "C" version motor home. It fits on the driveway nicely and fits my wife and my camping needs just fine. We had an '89 Telstar Champion before that, and it was about the same size as the lexi, though not as plush!!... but QT is right they're all Cs
We're newbies, have been full timers for a year and half in our own convetsion of a dodge high top van and want to buy a used class c, 26` max. Would like to know the pros and cons of the different makes. Thanks
I have a 2015 Renegade Villagio it is a 25' on the MB sprinter 3500 frame with the MB diesel. I pull a 97 jeep a get about 15 mpg. This my first class C . One of the things I really like is the rear slide queen bed. When the slide is in the bed does not fold up. Great for that afternoon nap in a rest area while on the road.
No we came across the Villagio when we where out looking for a class C. The wife liked it because of all the low E products used in building it. I liked it because of MB diesel and the fact that their was not a bed over the drivers area and good visibility out the windshield, no over hang.

If you did, or anyone else for that matter, what did you think?
I checked out a rear-slide Vienna at North Trail. It looked nice inside. Then I spotted the weight sticker on the door. The OCCC was 600 to 800 lbs if I recall! I don't know if the Villagio is similar.
