Class A vs. Class C Motorhome Comparison

Before you buy a motorhome in Boise or Westminster, it’s important to consider how much power, space, and storage you’ll need, as well as the number of people who will be sharing that space with you. Here, we compare two popular RV types among Los Angeles enthusiasts: the Class A RV vs. Class C RV. Compare a Class A RV to a Class C RV here at Dennis Dillon RV Marine Powersports, with locations in Boise, ID and Orange County, CA.

What is the Difference Between Class A vs. Class C?

In general, Class A motorhomes are larger than Class C motorhomes. Class A motorhomes are built on a larger chassis, and can measure up to 45 feet in length. These motorhomes are designed to be more like mobile homes, with amenities including bedrooms, fully-equipped kitchens, and large bathrooms. Class A RVs are ideal for travelers who’d like to spend nearly all their time on the roads to their favorite RV park in Southern California or to a campsite around Seattle. At Dennis Dillon RV Marine Powersports, we’re proud to offer Class A RVs in both gas and diesel engines. While Class A RVs are a bit harder to park and steer for the novice RV driver, the challenge is well worth it for full-timers. Some of our most popular Class A RV models include the Coachmen Pursuit, Entegra Insignia, and the Winnebago Forza.

As mentioned, Class C RVs are typically smaller than their Class A siblings, often measuring between 20 and 30 feet. These RVs are built on a truck or van chassis with an attached cab and overhang. This overhang is sometimes designed for use as storage, but can often house a double or queen-sized bed. Almost all of these vehicles include fully self-contained bathrooms, fresh, gray, and black water holding tanks, full kitchens, and entertainment centers similar to those found in Class A models. However, since Class C RVs are considerably smaller than Class A RVs, Meridian campers can generally expect to find less luxurious amenities on board. Because of their smaller size, Class C RVs are also good options for San Diego drivers who don’t have as much experience driving an RV or those who just don’t want to deal with the bulk. Some of our most popular Class C RV models include the Coachmen Freelander, Coachmen Leprechaun, and the Winnebago Mini Wini.
