GVWR on Mid-90's Class C's

Need some input from Class C owners. I currently own an 87 Allegro Class A (in my sig) and we are looking to move to a Class C that is between 27' to 29'. My concern is their CCC vs Class A's. I have been led to believe that they tended to come off the line at max weight and don't want to deal with that. Is this a fact or fiction? I know that most Class C's in the 90's were on 1 ton Ford or Chevy Chassis.

Just need some good facts.

Mine isn't a 90's but a 2006 and it has two slides which hurt the weight issue. I believe with all full of gas, water and such and 6 adults in there I had room for 600 lbs if I recall. Reason I counted 6 adults is for when on football game days.

My rig is a 29' 91(no slides) and comes on a E-350 chassis - it's pretty much maxed out as are other large e-350's. Not sure but I think the E-450 has greater weight/towing capacity but if the rig has slides then that additional capacity might be used up.
