Did to health reasons (husbands) have decided to sell the 5th wheel. Looking at class cs. Narrowed down to under 30 feet. Would prefer 27 or 28. Considering used. Looking at coachman leprechaun 260 d's or Thor Chateau 28z. Any recommendations,suggestions would be appreciated.

Think about something. If you can;t maintain a 5 how are you going to maintain a Class C. No disrespect intended.

Maybe it about driving and towing, hitching up and setup

With a class C, it's more simple, less to do, and she can do some of the driving

Well,
That's a possible answer but, without taking some sort of informal or formal survey, I'd say that about 98% of the folks that travel in either class C's or class A's, ALSO tow a toad. So, you'd still have some form of hook-up and disconnect, before and after a days traveling. The type of hookup and disconnect will of course, be a bit different.
A person or, couple can procure say, a 26'-28' class C and then get a small toad that takes literally a minute or two to hook up. Then, they have the versatility to bee-bop around after setting up camp. Maintenance is also a bit difference. Yep, a bit of engine, trans and drive train maintenance is gonna be present, for sure. But, it's not all that hard, especially with a C.

Try renting a C. If hooking and unhooking are the issue with the 5er, I believe you need some coaching and stress reduction. Learned this years ago when I watched a guy who could hardly walk slowly and carefully hook up...refusing all help. No stress in that man!

Good lord, she is asking "Any recommendations about Coachman Leprechaun 260 d's or Thor Chateau 28z".[emoticon] Sorry I can't help you but I would go with whatever floor plan fits your needs the best.

Take a look at the newer Class C's that are built on the Mercedes Sprinter chassis. Winnebago Navion, and Holiday Rambler Prodigy are 2 that come to mind. There are others out there as well. We are seriously considering upgrading/downsizing to one of them.

I am looking at smaller RVs myself and thinking also towards the future. I would look at a 24 ft class C with a full wall slide and no tow car. The Leprechon 240FS and the Chateau 24BL or 24 F would have a queen bed and enough room inside with the full wall slide. Maybe someone can comment that has a 24 ft with a full wall slide.
