I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

A Class B RV is contained within a standard van body, although often with an extended roof. A B+ has a slightly wider body behind the van nose.

Also Super C is a C style body/cabin mounted on a heavy truck chassis.

They make both C and Super C.

The C class will be the ones on the E450, Mercedes and Ram chassis. The Ram chassis does have higher GVW of 19,000 lbs than the other 2.

The Super C will be on the Freightliner chassis with GVW of 33,000 lbs.

Glad you got it.

I could have made it simpler if I had of said that it uses the Freightliner chassis and cab.

yep, the 'semi truck' front look is what gives away the freightliner SUPER C class, as it is truly the 'diesel' puller of the RV world.
The Class C's can get more confusing, trying to 'differentiate' between Cs, B+s, and others is a class in itself.

a Class B should be one, such as a Mercedes Sprinter, that is not really 'modified', as far as the body goes, and is just retrofit on the interior. But, even some of those have changed over time. Extended roofs, slides, etc. These have more of the 'personal Van' front look.

a Class C is probably the hardest to pin down since it can really be several different things, though it is 'supposed' to be: a manufactured Chassis(driver area only), typically a ford or dodge, an 'added on' RV body(built in the RV factory), and possibly slide rooms. These have more of the typical 'cargo van' front look.

Class As are the easiest to identify, most of the time, but even they can get confusing as to which are Ford chassis'/engines or which are Freightliner(or Spartan) chassis'/diesels engines(rear mounted), or even some diesels that are either front mounted, or even mounted nearer the middle!

As much as we want it to be, it's not as a 'standardized' world as we may want it to be. We, the public, keep asking for new and better... and they keep giving it to us!

Don't forget the B+ (Lexington, Concord, Used to be Jayco Melbourne). That is what they call a C, without the cabover bed and narrower body (typically 96") versus a traditional Class C at 102".

Technically there are ONLY 3 classes. Class A (named for the A rail they are built on). Class C (for Cab Chassis) and Class B (which is a VAN body, but I have no idea how it got the name)

Super C, B-Plus are just industry terms to try to differentiate between a traditional Class C.
