Disadvantages of Owning a Class C Motorhome

Here are some of the disadvantages of owning a Class C:

  • Leaking Cab Concerns - The Class C’s over-the-cab design often has seams that collect water and leak. Even worse: this tight space is difficult to repair and can cause lots of frustration.
  • Enclosed Feeling - Be sure you’re not claustrophobic; many Class C owners feel squished and even bang their head on the bed’s ceiling. 
  • Tail Swing - As the Class C body extends past the back tires, most drivers report an increased feeling of tail swing, which means your RV may shutter or loose control in the back region.
  • Front Seats - Since the Class C cab is lower than the living space, the captain chairs don’t turn to become part of the living room. In other words, once you are done driving, the cab becomes wasted space.
  • Size Matters - If you plan to full-time, a traditional Class C can be a bit cramped. Most full-time RVers choose to own a Class A or a 5th wheel due to its larger home-like design.

If you choose to buy a Class C, make sure to hire a professional RV inspector before you sign any agreement. It’s also imperative that you have the right coverages and protection for your RV. Contact RVInsurance.com today at 1-866-646-1755 to speak with an agent.
