Up to a Class C???

We have owned a TT, 5er, and back to a TT and now thinking it is time for new RV. We are considering the possibilities of looking into a class c.

Looking for opinions, thoughts (good and bad) of those who made the jump from a TT, 5er to a "C".

Thanks...

We have had cabovers, small single axle hunting TT, and then on up to 15-19-24 foot TT for me and the wife. The last was a large toy hauler for taking out Kawasaki Teryx and wintering in AZ. It was harder and harder to pull, in the wind and on Interstates so the wife finally quit trying to drive, Time to look into upgrades.

We have a very specific floorplan that we like, with fixed utilities such as plumbing to bathrooms, gas to stove and oven and the bedroom arrangements. Found everything we wanted in the latest MH. Made the jump to a Sunseeker 3010DS Class C last month and she swears it put the fun back into RV'ing for her. Leaving tomorrow for a 2 week trip into the mountains and she has never been happier.

Like some others I have talked to, most centered around once you are at the campground. You need to go some where... what do you do? We went from a tv/tt to mh/toad and really like it. If we want we can leave the Liberty at home, but if we needs something while camping, we can jump in it and go to the store. Or, we go on little excursions. Do I miss my Armada and trailer? At times. But I would be getting about the same gas mileage which ever way I went. But, there's other things to consider which others will write about.

What type of gas mileage are you getting with your "C"?

I am getting around 11-12 with my TV/TT. From what I have heard it would be around 10 or less with the "C". Notice any MPG difference when towing the toad?

Well, I'll give you a better idea at the end of today when I fill up. Stopped for the dogs right now... late start this a.m., and that's another story.

Class C

We owned a travel trailer, upgraded to a 5vr, upgraded to a Class A and downgraded to a Class C in 2016. We love the C. I have driven it towing a Jeep Liberty. My husband says it is like driving a truck so he likes it. We are trying to sell it now as we havenít been able to use it due to his back surgeries. Really want to travel. It only has 3900 miles. Forest River Forester 3051S 31í.

We have been up and down the spectrum of rigs a couple of times. Most recently from a F250 diesel 4x4 and 28’ SOB fiver to our 28’ Lexington 283GTS. We are well pleased. The opposing slides in the front give us a nice open living area and the bedroom slide gives us a walk around queen bed. We have spent as long as 3 months in it a few years ago in Florida quite comfortably. We purposely looked for a Moho without the cab over bed and have all the room we need.

We are campers not big travellers and don’t bother with a toad. We take our bicycles or walk on occasion for supplies if necessary. In Florida we just rented a car for a few days every other week.

The best improvement for us is the lower chassis and resulting lack of stairs. I have had two total knee replacements and was struggling with the tall truck and stairs at times.

Good luck with your decision.

We have gone through exactly that progression and are currently in the process of trading our 2014 Winnebago Aspect 30J for a Allegro Red 37PA. Love the loaded Aspect and with our kids raised, didnít need the bunk over. Instead, the Aspect provides a very sweet entertainment center, more arrow dynamic, lower profile coach with much less wind drag. Handles like driving a van and is completely loaded. Nothing negative to say about it over the past 5 years of ownership. Only trading because we are preparing for much longer stays in retirement.

I know there are there are all kinds of different variables...but, what kind of MPG are you "C" owners getting?

Do you see a difference when towing a toad or not?
