Comments?

Located in CA.

Why is it considered a Class C and not a Class A?

By definition it's a Class C and I've seen postings that indicate that because it is technically a Class C that some campgrounds have refused them, regardless that they are in every sense just as nice as Class A or Diesel Pushers.
Someties they are referred to as "Super-C's"

class C is defined as a rolling cab and chassis with the cabin added later. Where as most a's start as either a shell OR a chassis with no cab.

So are most Class 8 conversions a Class C or are they Class A's?

Where do the Class 8 conversions fall in regards to their classification as a Class "A", "C"...?

Motorhome size has nothing to do with classification?

Is this classification clear or are there gray areas?

What Class A motorhomes would start as a Chassis with no cab?

Are there advantages/disadvanteges of having one over the other?

-By definition, most Class 8 conversions are Class C motorhomes.

-See above.

Motorhome size has nothing to do with classification?

-No. Configuration determines classification

Is this classification clear or are there gray areas?

-Well, either a chassis starts with a cab or it does not. Anything gray about that?

What Class A motorhomes would start as a Chassis with no cab?

-All of them. They start as a bare chassis with a temporary seat, steering column, control pedals, and maybe a dashboard, but NO cab structure

Are there advantages/disadvantages of having one over the other?

-Depends on whether you want a truck cab around you, or the same structure as most motorhomes(This ought to be a no-brainer)

Size doesn't matter a truck conversion is a Class C. A BUS conversion can be a class A.
Class C is defined as follows:Class C Mini-motorhome - built on an automotive manufactured chassis with an attached van cab section.

An example of a class A chassis is the freightliner XC chassis. It is basically a rolling chassis with a steering wheel, NO Body

Is there a grey area... Sure it's grey for truck conversions becaus emost of the running gear and engines are more "Class A" like than C.
