So you know what one excels at or doesn’t compared to the other.
The biggest consideration aside from checking the boxes is the condition vs price in your budget range.

Have never driven a Class A MH but believe Class C is safer in head on collision, like shade of Class C overhead, prefer 27/28 foot class C for ease of maneuvering. Don't like huge windshield and heat from sun. Biggest benefit of medium sized Class C is usefulness as hobby, sport and local event support vehicle in addition to touring and camping. We take our 27 foot C to local parks for the day with our dogs, to theme parks, airshows and for kid sports as a support vehicle with rest room privileges. A larger C or A would be out of place in many situations.

Correction, I did drive some Class A's while looking at motorhomes, didn't like the huge picture windshield and sun glare, learned about front end construction and finding services for Class A's in the hinterland subsequently.
