What company makes the best class c?

Recommended Posts

I'm full-timing now for about 3 months in my 2014 Navion IQ 24G. I think it is the PERFECT RV. I have had zero problems with it, the gas mileage has been about 18 MPG, plenty of storage, etc. All of that said, RV selection is highly personal. You have to shop and shop and research and shop some more. I have a friend with a Lazy Daze and she would have no other. I'm also a fan of the Big Foot trailers. But for me? Navion/View all the way.

Two Class Cs that have not been mentioned that I think are higher than average quality are Dynamax and Renegade.  The question asked by the OP was "Best", not best value. 

Born Free and Lazy Daze are also very good, as previously stated

We have a 25 ft Jayco Melbourne for 3 yrs. we are happy with it. There are better class c’s but you pay $20,000 more and worse class c’s that cost less. So buy the best you can afford. We are happy with ours and the price and remember they all go down in value. How much do you want to throw away?

As you look at the Class B ones consider the size of the black tank. We managed only 4 months in our Leisure Travel before we got tired of dumping that often and traded it in on our Winnebago View. Dave also wanted the taller interior of the View; he didn't like having his hair move when he walked under the A/C in the Leisure Travel.

We're looking to upsize from a RoadTrek CS Adventurous.  We're looking at the Winnebago View and can't decide on a model.  Each seems to have advantages over the others.  Which of the three models did you choose and why did you choose that one over the others?

We chose the 2008 H model View because that was the only one that had room in the bathroom for Dave's long legs. Since I'm short I didn't have that problem. Instead my problem was the microwave being too high for me to safely remove food from it. Like you said, "advantages and disadvantages."

I researched for two years before I made my decision to purchase a Lazy Daze 26.5 Class C. I could not afford a new one, and it is hard to find many used ones this far east ( Texas).  I am travelling alone, and like to make sourdough bread and enjoy cooking, so I found a 2002 rear kitchen model that suits me well. I just had the roof re-caulked before I head out and the mobile contractor stated he couldn't believe how strong the roof was. Said it didn't give at all, where most of the RV's he works on the roof flex like crazy. Also recently had it weighed out at the Escapees Park in Livingston. I was afraid I would have to unload a bunch of my junk, but it weighed out well under the max limits. The lady that weighed me said the Lazy Daze always weigh out well. I understand a lot of RV's are almost at their max limits when you take them off the showroom floor, so something to keep in mind. Lazy Daze does not deal with dealerships. You either buy a new one direct from the factory, or you purchase a used one, usually from an individual. Whatever RV you choose, pay the money and have it professionally inspected before finalizing the purchase.  Good luck.

Welcome to the forums and also to the Escapees RV Club! Consider this to be an SKP hug and also your personal invitation to attend the 2020 Escapade!

The weight issue with new RVs was a fairly common problem, especially for motorized RVs back in the late 80's and into the 90's but as far as I am awarer is not true today. It has been a long time since I have seen anything but the smallest of RVs with less than 1000# of cargo capacity and most motorized RVs today have 2000# or more. Even my little 20' travel trailer that was built in 2012 has a capacity of 850# and you would be hard pressed to find storage for that much inside of it. That isn't bad for a trailer that has a GVWR of less then 4000#.

Class C and Super C the best ive seen are the Dynamax. They are super nice and haven't heard many complaints on them. If moving to a Class B Id say a Renegade or showhauler. Truck chassis and Super big box.
