Class C or B+ that has a King Bed

We are back in the RV Market after selling our class B this summer. My wife and I decided that it was too small (it was the Beyond 22C) and we are looking for a 24 to 27ft Class B+ or Super C that has a king bed. We would prefer a good used unit but a new unit might be possible. Does an RV with these specs exist? Thanks

"King Size" is a relative term in the RV industry. I wonder how RV double, queen, and king sizes compare to home sized beds. I don't think there is a standard at all. You really need to study bed dimensions.

The biggest bed will be found in a conventional class C, up top with a massive over-cab.

A B+ Phoenix Cruiser model 2351D DETAILS HERE is less than 26 feet over-all length. It's bed size is stated on the floor plan. The RV declaration of that size might be a queen size. The slide-out must be extended to use the bed.

Our 2007 B+ Phoenix Cruiser model 2350 SEEN HERE is only 23'-8" over-all length, but it has a limited access rear corner double bed that measures a tight 50"x76" which works but is surely not ideal. We appreciate the full length awning on the passenger side without an intruding slide-out taking up space under the canopy.

Two that I know of: 1. Jayco Greyhawk 27U and 2. Coachmen Freelander 29KB Both are "East-West" beds.

Last time I looked, the dealers had one or more "coming soon" ..... whatever that means. That status may have changed now. I'm guessing that if you find one, the negotiation re price will be another one of those "thin books" unless you want to wait a couple of years maybe? Here's a couple of 'em on RVT:

Good luck in the hunt; and safe travels to ya.

Hmmm ... our 24 ft. Class C has something better than a king bed - two queen beds. The DW uses one due her bad back requiring lots of room, and I use the other.

I have a 2014 Thor Siesta that is a 24ft RV (more like 27 from end to end) that had two full beds in the back, but also had a piece that fit in between to make a king. We keep it set up as a permanent king in the back. We ordered a mattress in a box from Amazon and set it up back there. Best decision we ever made. You can't walk around the bed, but it fits just perfect and is very comfortable.

Our Winnebago View Class C in a V-floorplan converts to a king in back (or two separate bunks). NOT a walkaround. You have to 'shimmy' to get off in king mode.

In The market for a B+

I have added to my size for a rear bed to be 2 singles versus a king bed. Also, what is recommended if I want to stay with a Mercedes, ford transit or dodge ram chassis versus the full sized e350 or e450. Thanks

The Jayco 27U is 30 feet long.
The Freelander 29KB is 30-1/2 feet long.

The OP is limiting himself to 27 feet.

Nexus makes a Super C with king beds and it can be converted to a "real" king bed if you replace the mattress. I know, it's been done to mine by the previous owner. I have a Ghost 36DS but I think other models are available with a king bed option and all of them are east-west beds. The difference between an RV king and a regular king is 6" in length so unless you are pretty tall this shouldn't be an issue. Yes you can walk around my bed, I won't say you have wide isles but you can get around both sides of it. Adding the residential king mattress made the foot of the bed a little tighter and you can't walk around the foot of the bed with the slide in. Good luck in your hunt.

The Dodge RAM is front wheel drive and has single rear tires so it cannot handle the weight of a conventional RV adequately. I heard people being very disappointed in being overloaded with minimal supplies and two people.

The Mercedes can be a money pit, very finicky regarding a specific diesel fuel and critical maintenance required by Mercedes.

The Transit diesel has been discontinued due to issues of sorts. The jury is still out regarding the performance and fuel economy of the gas engine that replaced it.

Comfort is lacking with the E350 and E450 compared to the Mercedes and Transit, but it's not horrid, just not as nice. BUT....it does the best of the bunch in reliability, capability, and lowest cost of maintenance. That is why the two are so popular. The bonus is that every shop in the USA is very familiar with the E-series and are not afraid to work on them. The story is different with the other two.

Our 2007 E350 with a GVWR of 11,500 is less capable than more recent model years with 12,500, but our motorhome doesn't need the extra capability. In-fact, I replaced the front coil springs to one rating less to improve ride comfort up front and lower the front to where it should be which also leveled the house better. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS WITH PICTURES. Loaded up with people, gear, food, and full tanks of fuel and fresh water, and it's perfect.

We have a 2021 Entegra Esteem that we bought in March. We were downsizing from a 45’ DP, but I also wanted a king bed. So far we’re very pleased. The bed is an RV king, measuring 72 x 78 inches. I’m 6’ 4” and my feet don’t go outside the edge.

The motorhome is 29’ 11”. That gives it enough size for the larger bed and a good sized living area. The compromise is a small kitchen and small bathroom vanity. Coming from a class B, it may be as large as what you are used to.

Our previous coach was an Entegra and we stayed with them due to their customer service and a two year warranty.
