One of the smallest is the Thor 19G at just a bit over 19 Feet.

These are Former Rentals and there are a few members here that own them,they may be along soon I think to offer more information.

Here is just one of them

We had a 24 foot Itasca many years ago. It was very tight with a rear corner bath.

Mine is 21 feet 3 inches long from the outside of the front bumper guard to the outside of the rear spare time cover.

I have not used one myself (and I'm not sure I've even seen one in real life), but the smallest class C I'm aware of is the home-built VW Minihome, designed to be built on a VW bug chassis, and which you can still purchase plans for. It's about 12' long overall, I think, maybe a bit less.

Our Freedom Elite 22e (Thor) is 25 feet bumper to bumper. We have been cross country 3 times in it so far. It is fine for the 2 of us. It's the only RV we've ever owned or used so I guess it's the shortest...

When we first got married 45 years ago we bought a 1959 international 1 1/2 ton four wheel drive truck with a chassis mounted 10 foot Cab Over camper on it. The original owner had it custom built to travel to Alaska each year on fishing trips. It would be considered a Class C by todays standards. It was great for a young couple with no kids. It had an over cab bed and a sofa sleeper in the living area. A galley Kitchen with propane/12v fridge. We took a closet and turned it into a shower with portapotti. The old propane lights as well as 12v lights.

It was perfect for weekend trips. We did take it on a 2 week trip to a lake that is 500 miles away.

My clipper is 20.5ft bumper to bumper. A friend has a Sunrader that is 18ft.

I find mine is the perfect size for me and the two big dogs. I can have 1-3 friends inside for visits comfortably. I can have one overnight guest comfortably (barring other issues).

Had a 24 footer with a slide. We boondocked a lot and loved it. It was small enough to make travel a breeze.
