We want a Class C!!


It's been months since we logged onto this forum. We parked our fifth wheel in March and haven't used it since. We moved into a new home, have been busy with it and life in general, ever since! Now it's time to "play" again!
We plan to sell or trade in our rig and are looking to buy a Class C, gas, 30 ft., or under. Today is the first day we started to look online. We feel like fish out of water and hope to get some input from our old friends here. Whatcha like??

Thanks in advance!
Jim and Mary Ann

We have a Four Winds 31F and truly enjoy it but unless you use it a motor home is a waste. Ours is up for sale but I have mixed feelings if someone makes us a good offer.

We are also looking. From what I can see there are currently no good floor plans offered. A couple shove in a king size bed when we want a queen, others do not have enough closet type storage and/or a decent kitchen. There used to be some nice layouts a few years ago so I have to wonder what they are thinking.

I have a Winnebago View 24J. It is on a Mercedes Sprinter chassis. Radius queen bed, single slide. It is a good size for two people and a couple kids. It drives like a van, easy to handle. I get 15-17 mpg. I have been happy with the Winnebago quality. I also like that there is good access around the coach including the bathroom without opening the slide.

We have a 2014 Coachman Prism 24G. It is a diesel but they do come gasoline. Ours in 24'10" long and has a queen bed on a slide in the back and the living room area if you want to call it that has a reclining loveseat on a slide, although you don't have to put the slide out to use the couch and you have room to get around. They have a few different floor plans. We like ours a lot and Coachman has been right there with any questions or problems that we have had .... nothing big, just a shade broke and we had lots of question on how to do things .... we are fairly new to RVing. I can't speak for how a gas one would drive, but the diesel has been a dream. You don't even know you are driving and RV.

Recently we sold our 41 foot Dutch Star and bought a 29+ foot Itasca Cambria. It has excellent access to everything even with the two slides pulled in for road travel. We bought a mobile home for winter living in our winter RV park and decided for weekend trips and for going to our winter home from Iowa we didn't need the big class A anymore. We have put over 2000 miles on the Cambria 29h and really like how it handles. I wouldn't want to live in it full time like the Dutch Star was capable, but it is great for travel. It averaged just about 8mpg pulling our Ford escape hybrid which had some extras in it and weighed 4140 pounds. We have about 900 pounds of room(380 front axle 510 rear axle) with water 2/3 and full of gas..including us and our two little dogs. I am sure we will be maxed this out when we leave for Texas. The Cambria is a class b+ or a c without the sleeper.

Thank you, everyone! We will take all the advice given here to make a thoughtful decision. I guess we need to check out when and where the next RV show nearby will be so we can shop around...

You should check out Nexus. We love our Phantom 28P, very high quality construction and plenty of floor plans to choose from.

Diesel now!

So after some research, we think we will go diesel. Now that we changed gears, we have new searches to create! This is fun! Sorry we just missed the RV show in Hershey...darn!

We saw a 2015 Forester 2401R by Forest River. Any comments?

We want a class C

You didn't miss much by missing Hershey. We are downsizing and some of the dealers didn't bring any smaller units and some didn't bring any C's at all.
I expected to drive one home, but the only one we saw that we would have bought, we had been given a better quote from our local dealer.
