When choosing a Class C RV for your family, it is helpful to consider the various benefits in order to make an informed decision. A recreational vehicle is a big expenditure and you want to study the market in light of your family’s needs before you invest in one.
Many Class C RVs have the same conveniences as a Class A motorhome, but the Class C costs less. They are a good choice for quick weekend trips as well as for longer family camping vacations because many of them are equipped to sleep 6 – 8 people.
A Class C is relatively economical to drive – and gets even better mileage if the driver follows the optimal road trip practice of keeping the speedometer at 55, or even a little slower. It’s less stressful for the RV and for you if you take it easy on the road.
Generally, the Class C is easier to drive and handle if you have it packed properly. Make sure you distribute the weight of your gear evenly. There is less storage space in a Class C than other motorhomes, so plan to pack light.
Another advantage of the Class C RV is that it is easy to try before you buy because it is often used for rentals. Test several models before you make a purchase. You’ll have a better idea of what you like.
If you look for a reputable dealer, and take your time making your decision, chances are you will enjoy your Class C RV for a long time.
