A common opinion is that a class C is easier to drive since the front is a van. However, the coach part of a class C becomes essentially the same width as a class A so you still have to deal with the wide size beyond the cab. Money well spent would be to rent one of each type, drive on different type roads, then go to the nearest campground for a weekend.

Some suggest "buying your last coach first". That is, some people buy one or more RV's before deciding what they really want and this advice is to just buy that big diesel pusher right away. This may, or may not be, your eventual plan and "bigger is better", while nice for some, doesn't satisfy everyone. We put 97,000 miles on a 23' class C and loved every minute. The next three motorhomes were class A, but the lengths were 26, 27 and 29 ft. However, our choices are not necessarily what you want, so:

Good luck, keep asking questions, and have fun...
