From your other posts it would seem you are having problems with cooling your trailer. NO one class is better then the other that I know of. Maybe you need to have someone knowledge about RV cooling system check your rig out instead of your hit and mis system of trying to figure out what is not working properly.

There is a difference in insulation qualities in rv's. The best at keeping temperature controlled is a four season unit or a polar package, even the polar packages have different levels.

My Heritage Glen is only a 3 season unit and it has huge temperature swings, too hot during the day and cold in the mornings.

Hope that helps,

I've owned Class C and A, two major items in both vehicles were air leaks and window tinting / insulation.

The best time to find air leaks is when its cold and windy, I just found a very large leak in my Mirada, just in front of the gas pedal right at the firewall, probably 2 x 6 inch hole that lead right into the engine compartment. I used a can of spray foam to plug it. (This explains why my feet were always cold when we were traveling in the winter)

Similar air leaks in my class A, doors, window handles, vehicle vents, etc.

Windows are great source of heat, I tinted all my windows and made aluminized covers for the windshields. Huge difference in trying to keep the MH cool.
