Class C motorhomes are an excellent way of seeing the country with your spouse or the whole family. While Class C RVs can come with very long overall lengths, you’ll often find that a more compact unit is easier to handle on the road and fits better into many of the campgrounds you find across the country.
For those reasons, a Class C under 25 feet long is a great option for many people. Some folks will need a bigger RV, but if you don’t and you’re looking for something on the shorter side that still offers a lot in terms of space, features, and amenities, here are a few excellent options.
2019 Thor Freedom Elite 22FE
The Freedom Elite 22FE features a layout with a single slide on the driver’s side of the RV. That slide is for the queen bed. There’s also a rear bath, a full camp-side kitchen, a large dinette, and a cab-over bunk at the front of the unit with a LED TV on a swivel mount. This layout is great for a couple or for a small family.
The unit measures 24 feet in length, so it’s a compact unit. Between the queen bed, bunk, and dinette, it sleeps up to five people. The motorhome features a Ford E-350 chassis with a gas engine that makes 305 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.
2019 Winnebago Outlook 22C
Another option with essentially the same layout is the Winnebago Outlook 22C. This model has a single slide, too, with a queen bed. The bathroom is in the rear of the camper and there’s a camp side kitchen across from a dinette. There’s also an over-cab bed with a TV. The bedroom area is just a little bigger in this model.
The overall length of this unit is a little longer than 24 feet. The unit can sleep up to six people between the over-cab bed, queen bed in the rear of the unit, and the dinette, which turns into a bed. Like the Freedom Elite this unit uses a Ford E-350 with a gas engine that produces 305 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.
2019 Forest River Forester MBS 2401R
If you’re not in love with the layouts of the units shown above, then maybe the Forest River Forester MBS 2401R will be more pleasing to you. The model features two slides. One is for the rear queen bed and the other is for the dinette. There’s also a bathroom on the driver’s side of the unit and a camp side kitchen. Above the cab is a bunk and there’s a TV in that area, too.
The Forester MBS 2401R is just under the 25-foot mark. When parked and the slides deployed, the rear slide will increase the overall length of the RV. Keep that in mind. The unit sleeps up to five people between the beds and dinette. The unit is built on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis with a diesel engine that produces 188 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque.
2019 Forest River Sunseeker 2290SF
The Sunseeker 2290F is another unique layout featuring a single driver’s side slide out. On that slide out is a wardrobe and U-shaped dinette. On the opposite wall is the full kitchen. The queen bed is in the rear on the passenger side of the RV. Next to it is the bathroom. At the front is an over-cab bunk and a TV.
This unit measures 24 and a half feet in overall length. The queen bed, over-cab bunk, and the U-dinette can all be used to sleep up to six people. The Sunseeker uses the Ford E-450 chassis. Powering the RV is a gasoline engine that makes 305 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.
2019 Thor Daybreak 22GOF
If you’re looking for a model with no slide outs, you should check out the Daybreak 22GOF made by Thor. The unit features a similar layout to the Sunseeker show above, but it lacks the slide for the dinette and offers a standard dinette instead of a U-shaped one like the Sunseeker’s.
The Daybreak 22GOF measures 24 feet even in overall length. The unit can sleep up to five people between the beds and the dinette. The unit is built on the Ford E-450 chassis. Powering the motorhome is a gasoline engine that makes 305 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.
