They say it takes 3 RVs to get it right. We are on our 6th and still looking.

We currently have a 43ft 5th wheel. We thought it was perfect until we realize it doesnt fit in many places and there are a lot of things that break. So we are now looking to downsize.

I was wondering if anyone can point us to a Class C or B+ that has the following:

2020 or newer floorplan
28ft or less
True Queen or King (no weird folding or Murphy stuff)
Real Dinnette
Pantry
2 recliners
Decent outside storage
Decent size shower/bathroom
Can tow a 4500 lb Jeep
E450

Any ideas of what to look at would be appreciated. Does a floorplannlike that exists in a small MH?

Thank you

MC

Fitting 43ā€™ of rv amenities into a 28ā€™ space will be a challenge.
With everything you listed, its going to be thin pickings.
You might have to choose a non-slide floorplan which is not necessarily a bad thing. Less to go wrong.
Most 28ā€™ class Cā€™s have a folding queen bed unless you go to a non- slide floorplan like
Gulfstream Conquest 6280LE
Coachmen Cross-Trek 27XG.

You will have a split bath and the recliner option in place of the sofa, may or may not be available . Im not sure if there is enough aisle room to recline. But you are gaining a comfortable island full QB which is easy to get in/ out and where you will be spending 1/3 of your day, every day.

I would check the websites of Phoenix Cruiser, Leisure Vans and Coach House to see if there is a B+ that suits your needs. Expect pricing to be much higher plus the floorplans might not be what you want.

You might try searching on this site:

RV Search

It has quite a bit of information for searching, although not always really up-to-date. One nice thing is that if you find something close it will have links to units that are for sale around the country.

You might consider a smaller class A gasser.
An older Winnebago Vista/Sunstar 26HE (last seen in 2016) would tick most of the boxes. It sits on the Ford F53 chassis, has the 6.8L V10, plenty of towing and outside storage, and a Queen partial walkaround rear bed. Full bath and separate shower, full dinette, but lacks the recliners.

Or there's this one, a little newer, and similar, a tad longer, with recliners.

Mike. Comments are anecdotal or personal opinions, and worth what you paid for them.
2018 (2017 Sprinter Cab Chassis) Navion24V + 2016 Wrangler JKU (sold @ ????)
2016 Sunstar 26HE, V10, 3V, 6 Speed (sold @ 4600 miles)
2002 Roadtrek C190P (sold @ 315,000kms)

Finding both a real dinette plus 2 recliners in a kindof small E450 based Class C that can also pull a 4500 lb. Jeep ... could be difficult.

Also, for the ultimate in coach structural strength and reliability of course no-slides would be the best.

Good luck!

how about a truck camper? some of them are huge with 1-3 slides. They are heavy, so most of the bigger ones really need a 450-550 truck to safely haul the weight.
But they have tons of flexibility. much shorter overall length, Take off the camper and use the truck by itself. tow a jeep, boat, trailer, or nothing, etc. You can usually get further off the pavement than most other campers away from other campers.

for ex: Eagle Cap

Lance and Arctic fox also make large truck campers with different floor plans.
