We are considering a used class C as our first MH, and I notice that many units do not have electric levelers. Is this typical. How do you level the coach?

You level by driving up on leveling blocks, and/or portable screw or scissors jacks.

Folks without a leveling system usually carry an assortment of wood or plastic blocks to drive up onto.

I've seen lots of class C's with levelers. We had them added to the Minnie Winnie we had a few years ago. Sure was a great investment. Problem is you need to be aware of the weight addition as the large C's run pretty close to the GVWR.

Both of the Super C's I have owned have had auto leveling levelers. I would not want a coach without them.

Here's perhaps a realistic perspective . . . your own physical abilities might relate to your NEED for levelers. If you're in pretty good shape, then messing with some blocks for a couple of minutes probably won't be a problem. However, if your physical condition isn't so good, then levelers might be a realistic need.

Plus mostly what others have already said.

Drive up on wood or plastic blocks to try to get level? In the dark? In the rain? No thanks, no levelers is a deal breaker for me.

John , if you can deal on a great price , just buy it without the leverlers. But get your 22 to 28 percent discount. Then go and call QUADRA Big Foot . they will installed fully automatic each leg (corner) has their own pump with 5 year warranty. these are top of the line , and whole lot cheaper then you will get from the dealer trust me I check around. i didn't want does spring return up and down or the the one that swing down at a angle. . does are electric and i went to the Hydrolic.

Also if you ever get stuck in a dish or small hole you are going to wish you had them installed. Also the flat tech will give you a discount if you have levelers , around $30 less cheaper to change out your flat tire as long as you have a spare mounted all ready .

John, go the member galley here on irv2.com and look up my name and see the Big Foot with the 14 inch pads on 21 inch legs , you will probably only need the 17 inch legs , i went to the longest they make because i have been to some scary campround where I have seen m.h on get this 8 2x 6 boards on top of each for the front tire on a long 6 foot running board. . after i saw that , i said no way . Now I can just hit the button to my desire hight i feel comfortable.

John , i am taking about my other m/h 2006 THOR , you will see it on the pic's

Would not have any MH with out levelers Be it an A, C or Super C.

Had levelers on my class A's and also on this C.
Got tired over the years of carrying a bunch of woode ramps around.
