I have a 2012 31f and am very happy with it. Second class C I have owned, I have only had it for about 10 months, put about 3500 miles on it and have not had any trouble other than a couple of very minor items when we first got it. I did install bigfoot levelers on it and have been pleased with them also.

Levelers are cool, but not really needed. Class C have lower weight carrying capacity, adding levelers cuts into that carrying capacity.

I don't think I would say necessary but I REALLY like having them, I had the carrying capacity and felt it was worth giving up about #120 or so pounds of capacity..

if you have a family then levelers prevent the whole coach bouncing around when people move around. it can be particularly beneficial for sleeping.

I would say hydraulic levelers actually save weight. Transporting cribbing to level could weigh more. I wanted them because for me a C was an upgrade. I really enjoy backing in, pressing the auto button and enjoy. I do not miss checking level, crib up, unhooking and set manual level jacks.

Thanks for all your redponses. Any thoughts about an inverter?

The inverter will be sized for the needs by manufacture. LED lighting helps here. Where you tend to run out of power is 30amp.

Electric/gas water heaters, frig, coffee makers, air conditioning/ heat pumps, well you get the idea. If 50 amp service is an option, I would do that. Was not an option for me. Plan to upgrade the service after warranty expires.
Hope this helps.

If you are boon docking, adding additional batteries to a C can be problematic. I have 2 batteries and it would be difficult foe me to add batteries. Probably loose a storage compartment. I do not boondock, so this is a non-issue for me.
