I have to agree with Mich F. We have a 33' Itasca SunCruiser (Workhorse) with a GVWR of 18,000 lbs. I think that rates as a Class C. We seem to have plenty of room, but then again, we don't full-time. We really do enjoy ours and don't have to worry about issues with air brakes and more expensive diesel maintenance. Good luck and have fun.

Super C is the best choice, bigger, lots of storage and same size engines as an A. But it is all personal preference

I love super Cs, the biggest negative about a super C is the driver area doesn't double as s living area like an A does, but that's personal preference.

The only advantage I can think of is a class C is cheaper to buy.

I think Class-C's ride better than A's. A's rock and 'porpoise' too much for me and I always get carsick in them.

I can think of three right off the top. Getting in and out with a bad knee & hip is far easier since it's the same height as my pickup. My wife will happily drive our Class C, even solo. I can park in nearly any parking lot and / or parking space.

One point missed is FULL TIME you have ALL you have with you. At least most do so. As to safety an A is on the BIG truck not a smaller C type truck, "big difference" I see on a head on the worst thing for both in an A you are above and safer, roll over, can happen to both but unless you drive in conditions you should not this is a small issue. Living area in an A is much better bigger as the cab space becomes living space. Closet space in an A will be better for your reduced wardrobe.
Now for all that say I am class A owner protective, NOPE, I just moved from A to C mostly because of where we want to use our RV in the future, smaller camp spaces.

Having had both what I don't like about my class A is getting in and out I have to go through the motor home and out the side door, the class C has less side leg room because of the motor making me feel a bit squeezed in but not enough to make me say I'd never have another one. I also like the maneuverability of the class C but they also hold less water and we do a lot of boondocking. Bottom line is get what you like best.
