One of the standards for family RVing, Class C motorhomes are a common sight to see on any campground. It’s no wonder you’ve found yourself browsing through the models. In case you still have some catching up to do, there are a lot of great reasons to invest in a Class C motorhome, only some of which we here at Ryan’s RV Town list here.
Class C motorhomes are a very specific type of RV, so we’ll break it down for you. Motorhomes are completely contained RVs. This means they come with their own drivetrain and engine. This means no tow vehicle is required to get a motorhome from one place to another.
Motorhomes are broken down into subcategories, known as classes. Class C motorhomes are distinguished by their truck chassis, meaning the front part of the RV looks like the front of a truck. More colloquially, they’re consider the middle of the road when it comes to size. It isn’t necessarily the biggest class of motorhomes and certainly not the smallest. However, there are much larger Class Cs, sometimes referred to as Super Cs. These can add a significant amount of length and interior space to the traditional Class C size.
One of the biggest advantages of choosing a Class C motorhome is how much easier it is to drive. Unlike some of the larger motorhomes built like buses, the Class C chassis situates the center of gravity in a spot that closely mimics what you’d expect in your standard commuter vehicle. This means that you’ll have to spend less time getting used to driving one of these rigs--although we do still highly recommend spending lots of time practicing behind the wheel before your first trip.
Now for the things you’re really interested in: the features. No motorhome is worth its salt if it doesn’t come with all the right amenities to keep you happy and comfortable. Depending on the model you’re looking at, you might find all the basics that you’d expect from a spacious motorhome--like a full kitchen, comfortable sleeping arrangements, and a variety of furniture arrangements--or you can get something a little swankier. Maybe you’ll be interested in an exterior kitchen, slide-outs, or multiple entertainment centers. Odds are, no matter what you’re looking for in your RV, there’s a Class C motorhome that pulls out all the stops for you.
