Class C vs. Small Class a RVs


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am looking at getting an RV in the 24-26 foot length range.   I was looking at  a 24 foot Class C diesel  on a Sprinter Frame vs. a small Class A diesel  such as a Itasca Reyo 25 Q or Winnebago Via 25  or similar RV   I believe the Reyo and Via are also on a  Mercedes Benz Sprinter Frame.   Does anyone have experience with these and could offer some insight?      

I had been looking at an older Dynaquest 260 but have concerns over only having a sofa bed and not an actual bed and the comfort it would provide although I do like the build of the Dynaquest.

My wife and I are in our 70's. Our experience is with a 1996 25 ft class C Jayco with a bed over cab (my spot) and a rear queen bed for my wife. (We have no animals or kids.) It is pure joy to travel in and to live in. It would be a challenge to fulltime in it as a boondocker, lacking the large gray and black tanks as well as the freshwater tank. It does great in a 5 week trip.

You will have no problem with storage. It's built on a E-350 Ford chassis. Everything was trouble-free across our two maiden voyages.

We got into this for $10K.

Funny, I also looked at a Dynaquest 260, and also did not like the sofa bed, pretty well made the coach useless when bed was out. Ended up with a Sprinter based unit with twin beds in the back and a single slide in the front. Like it because it is completely practical with slide in, Great for stealth camping.
