On the surface the 24 ft B, B+, C- or C are all the same length same height and the B + and C are slightly wider. What are the details I am not seeing?
Your statement: "It had the Ford 350 chassis and did not ride as well as the B's that I test drove..." for one. They drive completely differently. Your second statement "...B + and C are slightly wider" is interesting. My B is 76" wide while the Regency "B+" 94" wide per their specs. That's 18 inches of "slightly wider" [emoticon] which takes you out of parking between the lines in pretty much every standard parking spot.

If you look at them side by side you will certainly see a difference. If you put my B next to a View (for instance) you will see a huge difference. Smaller in every way. My B can park and go anywhere a van can since it is one. A B+ (C-) View can't. MPG will also suffer when you are driving a large box down the road compared to a van.

But - you do have to be a special person to own a B. Not everyone can do it - or will want to.

Good luck!
. You are right. We used to camp in a Hi top van when younger and really enjoyed it . Then people said to me buy your last RV first because you will want to end up with a 40 ft DP anyways. Some do some don’t , as we get older many off us want things easier and simpler. My wife of 52 years wants to just stay in hotels now, she backpacked With me into our late 50’s. So to me smaller RV’s seemed like a good compromise and become more attractive but every thing Is a trade off and finding the right one for your stage of life takes some research and understanding the details and your wife.
