What Are The Pros & Cons Of Super C RVs?
Super C RVs are super-sized versions of Class C RVs, with between 33 and 45 feet of well-appointed luxury. If you’re considering one of these gorgeous rigs, it’s important to know the pros and cons.
Pros of Super C RVs
There are so many pros to these RVs, it’s really hard not to fall in love with their features.
Greater ride comfort
Front seating positions are closer together, up high, and not as close as in a Class A RV. This front row positioning gives a softer ride, a great view of the road, and front-seat passengers don’t feel unnerving like they are sitting right on top of the road.
Easier to drive
The design of these RVs have the front row seating behind the front wheels, rather than over the top of them. This design makes Super Cs drive more like a pickup truck than a bus.
With the hood and engine in-between the driver and the front of the vehicle, and a durable truck chassis, the chances of surviving a front-end collision are far better in a Super C than a Class A RV. Three wide doors that can be used for emergency egress are another feature not found on other RVs.
Super C RVs are powerful
With plenty of horsepower and amazing torque, these RVs won’t bog down on hills. Towing capacity ranges from 10,000 to 20,000 lbs.
Easy to service
Most Super Cs are built on heavy truck chassis like Volvo, Freightliner, or Peterbilt and can be worked on at any truck mechanic shop. This means you can get a Super C serviced 24/7.
Super Cs are well-appointed inside and out. Manufacturers have installed everything to make you feel at home on the road:
- Real wood kitchen and bathroom cabinetry
- Granite countertops
- Spacious bathrooms with tile flooring
- Electric fireplaces
- Outdoor entertainment centers
- Huge awnings that span the length of the RV
- Loads of storage space
- Programmable Temperature Control
Cons of Super C RVs
Alas, while Super C RVs are definitely super, they aren’t perfect. The biggest barrier to owning one for most RV enthusiasts is the price.
High price point
There is no denying that the price makes ownership inaccessible for many would-be owners. The Dynamax Isata 5, which is on a Dodge Ram Chassis, starts at $211,211. Super C RVs range up to around $700,000.
Not as much interior room
Length measurements include about 10 feet of hood and front seats, so you get less interior space.
No RV is great on gas but due to their bulkiness and weight, Super Cs will definitely put a ding in your pocketbook at the fuel pump.
