As to Class Bs, conversion vans, they have sort of fallen out of favor because the actual coat for a good one is real close to that for a reasonable Class C. But no, you can't stand up in one.
We recently bouught a used 'B'. You can stand up in it easilly. I have neck and back issues due to a car accident and this was a necessaty for us.
We chose the 'B' over a 'C' because it would take us more places we wanted to go. Down the shore roads and logging roads etc.
Also, because it blends in better in the city. To the average joe our 'B' can look like a work van.
It is nice but not too nice like a brand new roadtreck that costs 100K plus. This means it is not a target for theft or breakins.
Finally with the price of gas now, we had to consider the cost of running it. Our 'B" gets much better gas milage than a 'C'. We can average up to 20mpg.
Interesting, here is another one of OP's posts:

A bit of clarification. I am in Sothern Ontario Canada. I wanted to know mainly about parking on crown land. but also parking lots.
We have car pool sites at the side of the highway in most cities on a major highway. Are these fair game?
I am familiar with the walmart thing and we only want to do this as a last resort.
On our most resent trip (north eastern Ontario) I bought the backroads mapbook that is supposed to show all crown land. I also used the Crown land use web site. This was great. We picked a spot near our destination. It was on crown land with an access road and close to the highway. The maps both showed all this as well as that there was a boat launch there and an access point for canoe routes. when we got there (4 hour drive arriving after 9 p.m. there were signs saying no overnight parking. We ended up staying at a 24 hour Tim Hortons.
We were so disapointed. We are new to all this boondocking and such and thought we had done everything right.
The next day we visited a mine and asked the owner about where the locals swim. He directerd us to an amazing spot. It was part of a conservation area-should be crown land since is a conservation (not a provincial or national park) area but very small so not on the maps. There were no signs so we spent the night. This is what we expected boondocking to be. A nice green space beside the river.
So given the whole story - the question is what are the consequences we would of had to face if the police (ranger, etc.) was to knock on our door during the night we spent at the conservation area?
Hoped this clears up a few things.
