Coach House Platinum II
 
Hello Sprinter folks. Do any of you have any experience or familiarity with the Coach House Platinum II Class B+? They have a great layout for our family. We are in Southern CA and they are based in Florida. Any and all input would be appreciated. TIA.

If you mean their class C, minus the cab-over bunk, no, no experience.
Others like them, and the Phoenix Cruisers, and some of the similar Jayco motorhomes.

I think they call it a Class B+. I have not seen this length and layout in other manufacturers so far. Thanks again for your quick reply.

Yep, for marketing reasons they will call it a "B+" or a "C-", because it's bigger than a van and has no bed over the cab, but technically when built on a cut-away chassis, it's a "C." That's neither a good nor a bad thing, just a classification. In general, a small class C RV will be less expensive than a class B RV, but despite being "small," even if it's the same length it will generally be a bit more spacious inside, and a little wider than a class B. Your money, your choice, pick the one that works best for you. :)

I will say this, though: If "stealth camping" or simply on-street parking with no hassles is critically important for you, do your research, as rules can vary from place to place. In our case, our best choice, hands down, would have been be a class B van with four tires on the ground (no dual rear wheels), and no awning. If we had bought, say, a camper van built into a RAM ProMaster, we'd be able to park that on our street, and our HOA wouldn't be able to do a thing about it. Instead, we missed that detail and bought a used Airstream Interstate built into a Mercedes Sprinter 3500 (dual rear wheels). It's lovely ,but for that one reason alone, local ordinances here prohibit us from parking it on the street. On the other hand, that van gives us more room, while still being as narrow as a conventional van and fitting easily in places a wider Class C might find challenging. Choices, choices, choices. :)

I imagine the rules vary from place to place.

A year or so ago I talked to a gentleman in Tallahassee FL with a 2017 Winnebago Era (not sure which model, different layout from our 70A) which has dual rear wheels. He said the HOA originally said he couldn't park it at his house because it's an RV, but because it says "Touring Van" (or something like that) on the back it was technically a van and they couldn't prevent him from parking it there.

Great coach. Entire coach is a single triple layer fiberglass shell, reinforced with carbon fiber. No seams. Employees are vested, sharing profits. This increases work quality and reduces warranty issues. I own a Platinum 261. Love it!
