Cant decide, I want a A she wants a super C.. We have 4 girls, ages 3-21.. will be using this to travel to trapshooting competitions.. is there any advantage or disadvantage between the 2? I'm sure this has been discussed many times before but I have very little time to sit down and look around on here..thanks!

I woulds suggest that the Super C layout makes it much easier to work on the engine. But.... The need to run a drive shaft down the middle also takes up basement space.

Seriously both are great and it really is more of a personal matter for the family to work out. Both can get you there and back in style.

DO NOT use Male logic on this one.

I will take it one step further, Go with a Truck Conversion, look at Renegade, Showhauler, or Haulmark, these are heavy duty Rigs that can be customized to meet your needs, Many advantages to this platform, Gene...

Haulmark is one of the few new motorhomes I'm actually impressed with. The only disadvantage I see is the more closed in cockpit. It ends up not being as practical as extra seating in the living room.

Are you looking at a Kodiac chassis or Semi-tractor type chassis?

I have had a class C and currently have an A. Both have features to love...and some features to miss.

One factor is your are a family of 6. Typically, the overhead bed in a c type provides a great sleeping location that is missing in an A type coach. This is a "always there/ready to go" bed...which will be of value to a larger rv based family.

I would suggest looking at any coach floorplan and thinking of what you have to do to: cook, sleep, lounge/loaf, bathe, and feed your family...both on the road and while "camping". This excercise might help you "visualize" the plusses and minuses of a specific coach. If any of these daily functions is a problem...you will be living with it every day.

As your into attending trap matches...I've found some ranges seem to lack level parking for thier special big events and you will need the capability to "boondock" for perhaps a full day...so levelers and a good generator set up will be very nice.

First, make a list of the reasons you want to buy a diesel. Those reasons should answer some of your questions whether a class A or a Super C is your first choice. Second, look at floor plan and storage space. Both types come with bunk beds or other bed options, but class A diesel basement storage will probably be better. Also interior room may be better in the Class A.

I did consider a Jayco super C with full wall slide, but my concern was noise from the engine up front, no airbag ride, and DW did not like small refrigerator and smaller shower and bathroom in the Super C.

Ditto ...

Some A's have a couple of extra bunks, but few, and floor plans, and chassis choices are limited. And A's in general are designed for just two people.

C's and Super C's do a better job of offering family oriented floor plans.

Super C's usually have great & efficient layouts for larger families.

That being said, to me most Super C's look like decorated U-Haul trucks.

Plus, your cab area is just that -- a cab area -- adding nothing to usable living space as a Class A would.

Tough decision, and only you can decide what's best for your family.
