A few years ago, the DW and I were at a similar point as you. We wanted the cab-over entertainment center instead of the bunk. We finally settled on the Jayco Greyhawk 31DS with the entertainment center above the cab. It has 2 slides. We like the length and the spaciousness. But a major consideration for us was the basement storage on the Greyhawk was about 4x more than the Class B/B+ units we looked at. Couldn't be happier!

Good luck!!

Ya, not sure about cost, though they tend to charge more for fibreglass structure....also the labour might be higher for the cabinetry and entertainment units.
I haven't checked my mileage yet, but I've heard from other similar unit owners, that a diesel like mine should get 14 or even 15 in average driving conditions (not towing).
My storage is fairly minimal as the other poster mentions, but not a big deal so far if you like to travel light. I think because Four Winds mounts the tire underneath on mine, might have also limited the size of the cubbies.

Has anyone replaced the class c bunk area with a fiber glass cap? What is the official name for the cap? Can they be purchased for local conversion?

I have a 2012 Jayco Melbourne 29D that is a very nice size with overhead entertainment center. Photos of it or on the classified for sale section.

In my signature. There is no B+.
We have an Aspect.
I never liked the regular C with the Rug Rat Room over head.
Felt like a turtle looking out from under its shell.
When we rented one. I felt as if the over head was pulling in the turns outward.

We have a 2005 Aspect 26A and love it, with one exception. The corner bed is a huge PITA. I don't think the newer Aspects have corner beds, almost all the B+/C's now have walk-around beds, except maybe the smaller ones.
Almost every Class C with the overhang is destined to leak at some point. We almost bought one before our Aspect, until I pulled up the mattress and saw the mold and dampness there. No other outward sign of leakage. I think those big overhangs flex in the wind and develop leaks.

There is a rental company near us that sells their units seasonally. They have a number of class c units advertised with diesel engines.

I agree with Tomhinmd. I have had the smaller Phoenix Cruiser and it has been absolutely wonderful and the manufacturer stands behind their product. We had an issue on our 2006 that i never dreamed I could get fixed so inexpensively. The factory worked on our unit for almost five hours making what i thought would be a small repair but they had to tear up the floor. cost to fix that and some damage the grandchildren did, $0! this is not the first time they have done this for me. all they asked was that I tell people what they did for me. Payment enough! btw, They make units up to 32' if I remember right.

They did around 2005. They're kinda hard to find. Note, the Van chassis may be a de-rated diesel as they may not have room for an intercooler.

I looked at one, 2005, with the 6.0L diesel. I'm a huge diesel fan.
As I started to look, I found:
1) The 6.0L diesel was derated, no power advantage over the V10.
2) That particular motor has a long history of requiring expensive repairs if not setup right via aftermarket parts.

I'd buy a 6.7L diesel in a heartbeat though...

That was precisely my thoughts. I didn't think they had room in the van chassis to put a diesel.
