Class C Motorhome

The Class C motorhome is larger than the Class B motorhome, yet smaller than the Class A motorhome.

These mid-range motorhomes offer many of the advantages of bigger motorhomes, yet generally take up less space and are easier to handle on some roads.

Class C's are easier to drive and more maneuverable than the average Class A motorhome. They are essentially a motorhome body stuck on a van chassis...basically an overgrown truck camper.

Class C Motorhome Advantages

This class of motohome is generally easier to drive and handle, especially on winding roads. Many models are fully equipped and quite luxurious. These units are usually outfitted for 4-6 passengers, although some units are built to cater for less.

Most models offer easy access from the cockpit to the cabin, even when the vehicle is in motion. Big enough to pack in just about anything, there is no need to leave any of your belongings at the camper park when you go shopping or sightseeing.

Class C Motorhome Disadvantages

The main disadvantage of the Class C motor homes is the exact opposite of their main advantage: you have to haul your belongings around with you wherever you go.

They are not designed as a commuting vehicle, so if you are considering buying one, it won't make a great second family car. The average driver might find it difficult to maneuver in urban areas, where roads and parking facilities are designed for much smaller vehicles.
