Families and avid road trip campers love Class C Motorhomes. Their popularity in the Redmond area for decades is largely due to the fact that they are easy to handle on the road, sleep a lot of people, and offer many of the amenities of much larger Class A Motorhomes, all without the massive size and thirst for diesel or gasoline. Class C motorhomes are considered ideal for families with many children due to the fact that there are many beds available in most standard floor plans.
Class C Motorhomes for Redmond Travelers
Class C RVs are often described as “mini-motorhomes” and are the ideal choice for larger families, retired couples living on the road, or anyone else looking to pull up stakes and live on the go. In terms of customization, Class C RVs also offer the most customization options when it comes to slideouts and accessories, too.
There are many benefits to choosing a Class C RV for your travels, but here are the highlights:
Easier to Drive
If you don’t have a lot of experience driving larger vehicles, Class Cs are basically the same size as a medium sized moving truck. They are a lot easier to manage while getting on and off the highway, and maneuvering during parking is a lot easier than larger Class A models.
Connected Living and Drive Space
The cockpit of a Class C is accessible via a doorway at the front of the living area, keeping the driver insulated from the back compartment but not completely cut off from others riding in the back.
Class C RV driving compartments are considered to be significantly safer in the event of an accident than most other RV classes.
Small and Powerful
Even with their larger living space and connected cabin, Class C RVs can still pull a trailer behind, allowing you to bring along your favorite recreational accessories on your travels.
Heating and Cooling Energy Efficiency
Due to the fact that the front cabin and living area are separated from each other, it is much easier to heat and cool the living space than with larger Class A RVs, saving you energy and money.
Many Class C motorhomes can be customized with slideouts for additional living space while your RV is parked.
The over-the-cab compartment makes for handy storage on the go, and makes it easy to sleep a couple extra people or kids on your trip.
Cost Analysis of Owning a Class C Motorhome
In order to make the most informed decision possible for your RV budget, there are a number of points to ponder. Upfront costs are most Redmond area buyer’s primary concern, and with a price range of $30,000-$100,000, there is good reason to make sure you are getting the best value that meets your needs.
The good news is that used Class C RVs are much less expensive than brand new models, with a much more cheaper price range of $8,000 to $30,000 on up. The individual prices of Class C RVs vary by age, miles, amenities included, and the number of slideouts available for each RV.
The second consideration most people examine when shopping for a Class C RV is fuel economy. The average Class C rates anywhere between 8-12 MPG depending on driving conditions and the driver, which is a vast improvement over the average fuel economy of a Class A RV that can carry a fuel cost of anywhere from $0.50-$1 per mile on average.
