No Offense... I looked at PC.
They didn't have a OH Bed.
I wanted my biggest bang for the buck... length wise/ with the most features.
They should have a model with a Over Head Bed.
Just my 2 cents... like I said.. no offense.

Hey, no offense taken at all.

Because the PC is lower profile than most, I think an over-head bed would be too confining. I don't know what my PC roof height is, but my rig is 9'-10" to the tippy-tp of the a/c unit. Laying down looking up, the ceiling would be too close for comfort.

I have heard of people special ordering their PC with that B+ cap open inside making an open bunk for a child, pet, or open bulk storage. But that sure is not a huge queen or king size bed as conventional class-Cs have.

Thanks Ron
My Class C has the equivalent of a 48 inch wide by 72 inch long OH Bed.
9 feet 10 1/2 inches tall to the top of the AC.

But one thing you would gain with the PC, is a little more aerodynamic, thus better gas mileage.
How is the head room achieved? Does the front tumor upward higher than the rest of the roof like this?

I really like this tumering concept to keep the over-all height lower. And I especially like what appears to be a seamless bucket design for the cab-over bed area. Am I right about it being a seamless bucket?

Question: Which is a good, quality workmanship rv comparable to mine? Class B+ with a glide out, about 24' long.


I'm not familiar with your unit, so I don't know for sure if the following produces a similar unit. You should look into the Winnebago/Itasca line. This company has been around for quite a while, and they know how to make a motorhome. There are also many dealers across the country, and you can get easily get parts if the need arises.

Our '08 Winnebago View has not had a single problem with the house portion. Not one, as in zip, zero, nada. The chassis has only had one problem, an O2 emissions sensor that went bad, and was replaced under the 100k miles emissions system warranty. Other than that, the only thing I have done is normal chassis maintenance, and replaced the batteries.

My brother's late-nineties vintage class-A Winne has not had any major issues either. I don't even think he has had any minor issues either. The overall reliability and durability of his unit is the main reason why we also went with Winnebago. Take a look at them, if you get a chance.....

No, Triple-E is alive and well. What they stopped building are Class-A motorhomes. They are still building Class "B+" models and, of course, Leisure Travel Vans, their sister company, is building A LOT of Sprinter-based motorhomes (as well as one Chevy Van-based model.)

Yes the OH is all one piece/ seamless fiberglass.
The roof is one piece fiberglass.
The back is one piece fiberglass.
The "sides" are fiberglass.
Where these pieces join together, there are seams.
Interior has 3 steel roll bars.

Not sure what you mean by "tumor"?
The roof goes up in front to give you room to access the OH and then goes back down to the rear. I am 6 foot tall. At the back, headroom is probably 6'2".
Steve, I learn something new every day. Your Born Free is a revelation to me. I never realized the front cab-over was sealmess. It's now my #1 recommendation for people who desire a cab-over bed. I really don't know any other manufacture making seamless cab-overs in 2013 except "maybe" for the View which involves the Sprinter diesel. Not that the Sprinter is bad, but people in general shy away from a diesel. You diesel people, please don't take my comment wrong... okay?

BTW: By tumor I meant the cab-over roof tumors higher than the main roof. And you clarified that for me.

When we were in the market for a B+ 6 years ago, I did look at Born Free, but our 25'-0" max length & main floor permanent double bed ruled them out. Planning for retirement, we felt a cab-over bed would catch up with us, hence "B+" main floor bed.
