Yep ... I think you're right on a 24 foot Class C length being the shortest to provide two queen beds, plus another full bed from converting the dinette. Our 24 foot Itasca also has a lounge chair facing the dinette.

Here's our 24 footer boondock camped off a 4X4 road in Death Valley:

Yep, I think to get a dedicated rear bed you have to go with 24ft minimum.

If you are OK with the cabover bed or a convertible (including murphy) bed, you can go down to 21ft or less.

I guess we have to qualify our dedicated rear bed 24 foot comments: For a NON-SLIDE small Class C you have stay with 24 feet minimum to get a dedicated rear bed.

The Winnebago 22M has a dedicated rear bed (walk around bed, too) ... but that rear bed is in a slideout that comes out the driver's side in the rear.

IMHO, that Winnebago 22M is a fantastic little Class C that can even be ordered on the heavy duty E450 Ford chassis for the ultimate in ruggedness - but unfortunately you have to accept a slide in order to get that bed/smallness/durability combination.

Didn't use it, wasn't even inside it: we were waiting for the ferry from Seattle to Victoria, B.C., and wound up behind a European Class C (Renault chassis? Can't recall), driven by a couple who had it shipped over from Europe to Halifax, Nova Scotia, and who had then driven it all the way across Canada and down into the U.S. They were preparing to drive it back across to Halifax before going home. It looked to me like the house portion was just about long enough for a bed and a little more room, but they were quite cheerful and clearly still having fun together.

The people in this one did the same thing (motor home not the van). Shipped it over from France.
