What are the benefits of a Class A over a Super C?

You get to stay at all the snobby class A only resorts.

Super C's are more aerodynamic.....

And yes, If you want to stay at some RV resorts...many only allow Class A's, not Super C's (even though many Super C's cost way more than some Class A's)

that's about it......

having never sat in a super C cab I do not know how they compare with standard Cs which to me are the same as a pickup or Van. whereas my Class A front end seats like a recliner in the living room. In fact my passenger seat is a recliner. and why not buy the real thing instead of just a pretender?

The Super C's are no pickup. The cab area is just as comfortable as any A. I would also think the Super C's would handle a lot better then some of the low end gas A's or maybe all the gas A's. I have never driven a Super but I have driven alot of box trucks with that chassis and cab, and they all handled better then any A I have driven. As was said some Supers are more then some gas A's. Plus you have driver and passenger doors that are easier to get out of. Keeps the dirt and oil out of the living area from gas fill-ups. I don't think you lose very much room inside as on alot of A's it is a pain to turn the driver and passenger seats around so they can be part of the living area anyways. I have had class A's, but if I ever went back to a MH I would definitly look for a Super C.

Super C's are really, really nice. We looked at getting one as our original intent was to get a regular class C. A regular class C did not have the towing capacity that I needed and the fuel and water tanks are to small for me. Also in the used market a used class A is cheaper, and you get way more for your doller then a regular class C. Bigger fuel and water tanks, hydraulic jacks and way more towing capacity.

Thats why I was looking at a Super C as the towing and tanks are the same as a Class A. The biggest problem is unless your looking to buy new, there are not many used Super C's out their and the prices are still really high.

Now with a Super C or any class C you do lose space compaired to the class A as the engine and drivers area are not useable space. So a 30 ft class C really has 24 foot of coach area. But what we really liked about a C or the Super C is the fact that you have the above bunk which gives you 2 true large sleeping areas without effecting the general living area. Also the upper bunk is a great place to store stuff and to get it off the floor when camping.

In 2008 we bought a 2003 32' Fleetwood Southwind and love it. But I would not rule out buying a Super C, if the time ever comes where we are looking for another MH. My wife loved the Weekend Warrior Super C with the side hallway. I too agree it was a great floor plan, as the bathroom was nice and big. But buying new was not even an option for us.

If we ever get another MH it will be a Super C on a Peterbuilt or KW chassis. I'm really tired of the extra cost for repairs and parts because an A is a speciality box full of weird parts only available from mfgs. that don't care and a dealer network that really doesn't care past the sale. I like the MH we have and will use it for many years to come hopefully but the silly things like having to remove the gen set to change the fan belt, which requires a chasis lift for the MH and a fork lift to get the gen set out, are just stupid. Our old Win. Itasca Horizon had the license plate light bulb burn out and it turned out to be a speciality, sealed assy. only available form Winny at $12.00 each and took two weeks to get. And the list goes on.

I have never owned anything but a Class A, but I would prefer a Super C. Only problem is I own lots at two places that only allow Class A.
