To small for us. We are at just under 32 feet with 3 large slides and that gets a little tight after a week or so.

Nice

We camped next to a couple from the Netherlands last summer in Acadia National Park, ME who were traveling in that type Class C. It was compact and they were able to unhook and take off during the day.

We just sold our Class A in April and bought this B+ and are now selling it to get a larger B+. Love the BT Cruiser, but need a queen bed in the back.

Only differences I see in a B+ compared to a Class C is the height. I store ours inside where the door clearance is 10' 5" and the BT Cruiser is 10' 4". Most C's are much higher, but have also seen B+'s at 10' 8", so go figure. I would like to know who originally came up with the "Classification" B+.

I think a Class B is when the manufacturer takes a van or minivan and crams as much living equipment in there as possible. Class B roof tend to be a tad bit taller to accomodate an average person standing. Class C is when a van front end is used and the rest of the body is removed (cutaway chassis). Then the manufacturer sticks what looks like a 5th wheel body on the chassis to make a Class C. It's not a fifth wheel body but cover the van front end with your hand and tell me what it looks like. Sound about right?

Yes the "B" is a van, but where is the difference between a "C" and "B+". Some "C"'s are E-350's and some "B+"s are E-450's. There is nothing to differentiate them...

I have no problem differentiating a Class A from a Class B or a Class C from a Class B. It's obvious to me. When I see one I can tell it's a conversion van (Class B).

A manufacturer would turn this into a Class B. Dodge Sprinter Van 2500. Photos, video, features and tuning of vehicles. Www.bestautophoto.com

A manufacturer would turn this into a Class C. Dark Blue Metallic - 2008 Chevrolet Express 3500 Cutaway Chassis - Medium Pewter Interior | GTcarlot.com - Vehicle Archive #12843453

Some of the short B & C's have side and or rear slides. With that, they are big enough for travel, yet. An be used as a second town car and have reasonable purchase price and mpg.

In my experience a B+ is usually more expensive than a comparable C. I think it is all a marketing scheme to sell a person a C but call it a B+ to make them think they are buying something a little "classier". The RV industry is always reinventing itself with more choices, which isn't always a bad thing.

You are absolutely correct. You just have to compare models and sizes and a "B+" is a lot more money than a comporable "C". I also know the difference between an "A" and a "B",( very obvious) but not a "C" to a "B+". I have owned all but a "B".

I asked because I don't remember seeing "B+" until recent years. Interesting conversation.

I am positive it is a B+. It is on a Ford chassis and is an E-450 with the V-10 engine and you won't find any "B"'s like that. My first B+ was a 2004 R-vision B+ and was 29' long and also had the V-10.

I looked in to it more. From a video on the Melbourne I saw I noticed the cab over is modified and aerodynamic plus there is enough exterior storage to carry a bag of charcoal and some matches.
