I have been checking around. Do they make a Class C with out the step down to the drivers & passenger seat from the main coach? Also one that doesn't have the bunk bed over the cab, I seen one along time ago that had an entertainment center up there instead of the bed. I can't remember what make it was and haven't seen one since. I'm thinking about down sizing if I can find one.
Thanks

look at the winnebago aspects for the entertainment system (B+), or some of the other B+ platforms. But just about all have the step down as far as I know.

Our Forester has a stepdown, but it's only about 2" & tapered down. Many come with the entertainment center, (mine did), but many come as an Option.

Lots of them have the option of an entertainment center in the overhead area instead of a bed. As far as I am aware, they all have at least a little step down to the cab area. Some higher than others.

Take a look at the Coach House units, they are high quality and hold their value; but the best deals are the slightly used MH's sold at the factory and are just like new for a more affordable price.

Hi egh33,

The quick answers to your questions are yes & yes.

The answer to your bunk bed question is.....You seek a B+ motor home of which there are many to choose from. It is officially a class C but with a small aero-dynamic cap instead of the massive bed. This difference give it an unofficial B+ classification. We own a B+ motor home and love the setup.

The answer to your "step-down" question is in the selection of the chassis that the motor home company built the house on. In the conventional class B+ market, there are five basic chassis choices.

Ford E350 & E450
Chevy 3500 & 4500
Mercedes Sprinter
Ford Transit (no step-down)
Dodge Promaster (no step-down)

The Transit and Promaster do NOT have the step-down. They are more like a mini-van with a much lower stance, hence no need for a step. But they don't carry nearly as much of a load as the bigger boys do so they are offered only in short lengths. CLICK HERE to see an example of a Transit B+ motor home.

It has been over 15 years since we shopped for a motor home so do not have current knowledge on how the Class C chassis are made. We bought a new 2002 R Vision Trail-Light Model 211-S with a 5.7 Chevy with a flat floor from the cab to the rest of the motor home. All of the Chevy's we looked at had flat floors. We looked at a couple Ford's and they had the step down.

Our motorhome has a television above the cab instead of a bed.
