Smaller Motorhomes have been becoming increasingly popular, with Class C, Class B+, and Class B being a rapidly expanding segment of the market. Several RV manufacturers that previously only produced Class A motorhomes have been throwing their hat into the Class C market.
In this video we show you new models from Winnebago Vita, Tiffin Wayfarer, Entegra Qwest, plus a Super C Showhauler. Of course, the Showhauler is far from small. It’s one of the biggest RVs out there. But it’s still considered a Class C (albeit a Super C) . So we included the bit of footage we managed to capture in this video.
Watch our video for a visual tour, and read on for some notable mentions.
Tiffin Motorhomes has predominantly built Class A motorhomes over the years. A couple of years ago the family decided to expand their product line into Class C motorhomes with their Tiffin Wayfarer offering.
They have had a number of floor plans available, but we felt this new 25RW was a noteworthy one as it feels amazingly spacious inside. It has power reclining seats, and a murphy bed. So the floor space feels very large for a Class C. MSRP is around $143,000. This unit was offered at the show for about $122,000. Click here to watch our video tour.
Winnebago debuted their new Vita Class C at the Tampa show this year. The company is rumored to be shifting much of it’s Class A production to producing more Class C motorhomes.
This Vita is offered at a lower price point than some other Mercedes Sprinter Chassis based Class C motorhomes. The Vita we saw had an 80″ long bed. But the bed had a rounded corner that might make fitting sheets more challenging.
MSRP is around $126K. The unit at the show was offered for around $90K. It has a functional floor plan that could be very popular. Click here for the video tour.
Entegra has traditionally only built luxury Class A motorhomes. But last year they entered Class C production with many models including their Mercedes Chassis Qwest Class C.
This 24K model offers two slides,. One with the dinette on the driver side, and one out the back with the bed. The floor plan feels very roomy when the slides are out. We liked the large pass-through storage at the rear of the coach.
You will need to pack relatively light with only 750 lbs of cargo capacity (including passengers). This is a very nice looking RV inside and out. MSRP around $150K. This unit was offered at the show for about $100K Click here to see our video tour.
For those needing a lot more cargo and towing capacity, you can look at Super C motorhomes built on large truck chassis. There are other brands that build Super C. Showhauler is a custom builder and can build on most any truck chassis.
These are higher end, much more expensive RVs with prices ranging from $200K to $350K. But they can be built on semi-truck chassis with 600hp, 2000 ft/lbs of torque and up to 20,000 lb towing capacity.
They are serious rigs, often purchased by racing teams. But we see them being used as private coaches as well. Click here to watch our Class C video.
There were, of course, many more Class C motorhomes at the show built on many different chassis, so there is a wide variety to choose from. Class C motorhomes without slides, built on Ford Van chassis are also much less expensive than the Mercedes chassis Class Cs with slide outs we featured in this video.
We would have liked to visit more Super C’s to show you in these tours, but we were simply running out of time. Even though we worked the show all day every day for six days. We are but mere humans. Hopefully, next time!
We also featured some downsized C’s, also commonly referred to as Class B+ motorhomes in our post and video tour about Class Bs so make sure you check out that one too.
