Class C motorhomes, otherwise known as mini-RVs, are comparable to Class A motor homes. Class C motorhomes are smaller than the Class A RV and are less expensive, but can offer just as much luxury.
Class C motorhomes are built with side doors and a passenger door, and they are built on a cutaway chassis. The driving space of Class C motorhomes resembles a van or a truck. This gives the driver a different feel than driving its larger counterpart.
With Class C motorhomes, there is a cab over design that distinguishes it from other recreational vehicle units. This is most often a place for sleeping, and it could be the only sleeping area, depending on which of the Class C motorhomes you select.
The most common length of Class C motorhomes is 30 feet, but they could range from 20 to 35 feet. As with any RV, floor plans vary, so you will choose which floor plan suits your traveling needs the best. There are lots of floor plan options as there are in Class A RVs. The RV cost could range from $45K to over $100K. The price of the recreational vehicle will depend on the make/model; amenities; upgrades; new/used; etc.
This size of RV is often considered popular because of the option to upgrade it to be as luxurious as the owner sees fit. It is up to the owner of the RV to know his/her budget, select the unit and then upgrade and add amenities.
Samples of upgrades are as follows: you could get a larger bath area; you could increase the kitchen space and make it more complete with additional appliances; you could add larger beds that can accommodate up to six people; or you could add nicer furnishings or materials, such as countertops or draperies.
This size unit was built with all the comforts of ones own home. This was done by the manufacturers so that people could live in the unit for a weekend or several months and feel comfortable.
As previously mentioned, the interior space of the Class C unit is not as spacious as the Class A unit. The positive in this is that it takes less fuel to haul it or drive it from place to place. Thus, you save money upfront on purchase price and you save fuel money over the long haul. People who favor this RV also remark that it is more maneuverable when parking or camping in smaller spaces.
No matter what size of RV you purchase, make sure you have learned the basic facts of all the units, so that you can make a wise decision. Choose the size of recreational vehicle that complements your traveling tastes, budget, and style.
