Looking to purchase a gently used B+ or C Rv with bed over cab, rear corner bed, garage storage and a chair by the entryway. No longer than 25 feet.

So far have considered the Coachmen Prism M220, Forest River Solara 24, and the Thor Chateau.

Can anybody offer advice or pricing on these?

I currently have a 2000 Dynamax Isata Sport coach.

I recently traded my class A for a Prisim, I think it is great, I get 14 MPG towing a Ford Fusion, it has enough room for DW and I, along with the two dogs and a cat! The ride is good, (I do miss being up above it all with the A), but it is comfortable even on the interstate. Hope this helps!

There are a zillion ways around the possible hassle of making the bed. The compactness of it makes up for it IMO.

I have a rear corner bed in a 24 foot Class C and making it up is no problem at all. If I were you I wouldn't consider it as an issue.

We leave a permanent heavy cover on the mattress. What we do makup - very easily - is a 2 inch foam topper on top of the mattress. The DW made a fitted bottom sheet for the topper and a non-fitted top sheet for the topper. We wash both of these after every trip. You can lift the corners of the foam topper to quickly hook the fitted sheet corners on the topper and tuck the non-fitted sheet under the window side and foot of the topper. We hardly climb up onto the bed at all to do this - most of this can be done just standing at the foot of the rear corner bed. The 2 inch foam topper also makes for a very comfortable bed!

I wouldn’t let the corner bed arrangement be the deciding factor governing your choice. I use one of those extended-reach grippers (see here) to straighten the sheets and blankets in the far corner of the bed. The gripper adds about two and a half feet to your reach and greatly facilitates daily bed making in units with otherwise hard-to-reach corners. With this device, you can easily straighten out the bed each day from the unobstructed side.

I would think that making the bed in the crows nest would be harder, but my wife does it every day without complaining.

We have a Winnebago Access- the model says 24' But measures out at 25'1" it works for our small family- no slides- corner bed. Takes up two parking spots at the nearest wallmart.
