5 Best Class C RV Floor Plans For Full-Timers

A Class C motorhome has a distinguishing feature from the Class A motorhome. They have the cab-over profile that usually boasts a bed or additional storage. This type of RV is usually on a truck chassis and has a gas or diesel engine. Like the Class A, they are self-contained.

We created this easy-to-reference list of the 5 best Class C RV floor plans for full-time living.

  1. Several of the reviews mentioned that the coach could sleep more than two people, in one case as many as six. None of the reviews stated how many people, in addition to the two individuals in the cab, could be passengers occupying seats having legal seatbelts.

    • Hey Steve, that is a great point! I will keep that in mind for the next review! Very important info to have to make an informed decision.

  2. We have a 2018 Winnebago View 24D Murphy Bed floor plan. It’s the best floorplan and quality class C out there. We had a 2016 Entegra Aspire 45′ Diesel Pusher prior to downsizing to our View. We find the build quality of the little View to be every bit as good as the much pricier and much larger luxury Class A Entegra. You should have mentioned the View and Navion from Winnebago if you really want to talk about TOP 5!!
    By the way…the Tiffin Wayfarer doesn’t allow for much more than two passengers, clothing and little else in it’s weight limitations! Something most buyers never consider and aren’t informed about when purchasing!

    • I love that the View 24Ds but I am curious how practical they are for full time living since carrying capacity and towing capacities are not the highest. Are you full time in yours? If so, are they easy enough to go and get groceries in? How do you handle your day-to-day travel needs in yours?

    • Hi Joyce, thanks for your comment and opinion! I guess it really depends on the full-timer. It is certainly an adaption to your cooking style when you full-time in an RV!

  3. Why are the grey tanks smaller than the black tanks in these units. Everybody knows grey tanks fill up twice as fast as black tanks.

  4. We have Forest River Forester 2501TS. We looked at every Class C. This floor plan by far the best for us. Three slides and the master bed slides to the back which gives us three extra feet in interior length.

  5. Like your article I have a Fleetwood 44b bunk house. 44 feet long and it is definitely all the comforts of home. Only concern is some of the older campgrounds are not big enough. But I love this coach.

  6. Personally I will never have another RV that does not have front seats that can swivel.
    In my opinion a dinette is a relic from the past when people wanted an upgrade from a log to sit on. A small couch or 2 comfortable chairs with some type of removable table would be my choice.
    Thanks for your articles..

    • Hey Bill, thanks for your comment. Swivel seats are awesome – and in some cases, a relatively easy DIY project. I like your thought on a couch or 2 chairs with a table. I think that is a great option for some.

  7. Have you ever looked at the Newmar Superstar? Would love to get feedback on that Super C. My understanding is that its similar to the Jayco, but with a bath and a half on the 4051 layout that many people like. Thank you!

    • Hey Paul, I guess “best” is based on personal preference, knowledge of full-time RVing life, and reviews from other owners. It is definitely subjective though. Your version of best might be different than mine.

  8. Why do you not review Dynamax Products?
    I own an Isata series3 and I think it is the best made Class c made in America.

    • I agree! Love the floor plan of the Issa series 3. Don’t need the dinning table- takes up too much room. We bring a fold up table and two extra chairs if we want to (rarely) entertain. Just the two of us, two fold up TV trays. Only dislike is the micro/convection oven is too high and would rather have a regular oven.
