Super C RVs are Awesome and Here’s Why 5139

If you know the types and classes of RVs, then you probably also know that there’s what’s called a Super C RV. This is a Class C RV that’s built larger and more on a scale with a Class A motorhome. However, the Super C RV is still not built on a bus chassis. It still has a large commercial truck chassis.

This enables some advantages that make the Super C special. Personally, I think these RVs are awesome and a good alternative to a Class A motorhome. Let’s take a closer look.

What Is a Super C RV Exactly?

Super C RVs are motorhomes that offer a design similar to a Class C coach, but with a larger chassis and powerplant. The super-large frame and extra-powerful engine open up a lot of possibilities when it comes to the details of the motorhome.

So the chassis on Super C’s are a lot bigger, but how much? Class C motorhomes will typically use the Ford E-450 chassis or a comparable chassis from Chevrolet or another manufacturer, Super C RVs get the larger truck chassis. For example, the 2020 Thor Motor Coach Omi Motorhome features the F-550 chassis. This is a considerably larger option.

So, it’s bigger. Is bigger better? In some cases, no. In other cases, yes. It really depends on how you plan to use the RV. However, I will say that there are many advantages to a Super C motorhome. Let’s take a look at what these advantages are.

Wider Wheel-Base

Typically, a Super C RV will have a wider wheelbase than a standard Class C. These types of RVs can even have a wider wheelbase than some Class A RVs. This means you’ll feel more safe and secure on the road. The Super C RV is one that is well-planted and ready for any road.

Plenty of Exterior Storage

Regular Class C motorhomes have limited basement or exterior storage space. Super C motorhomes have a basement storage area much more like a Class A motorhome. This means you can easily store a grill, camp chairs, an extra tent or canopy, or anything else that you’d like to take along.

Spacious Floorplans

As you might imagine, a larger chassis means more room to work with in terms of the floorplan. A Super C will have plenty of space for you and your family to enjoy the interior of the RV. While not every family needs a huge floorplan, most will be happier with a little more space.

High Towing Capacity

Want to bring a toad or tow a boat with you on your next camping trip? Get yourself a Super C RV and you’ll have plenty of towing capacity for whatever you want to tow. Typical Class C motorhomes usually have a pretty good towing capacity, but they pale in comparison to a Super C. Some can tow up to 25,000 pounds or more.

High Durability and Numerous Service Stations

The last advantage of the Super C motorhome is the fact that it uses a typical large truck chassis. These chassis were designed for hundreds of thousands of miles of heavy use. They’re built like tanks and can truly take a beating.

Additionally, these large truck chassis can be serviced by a larger number of service stations than a Class A motorhome can. Many service stations won’t touch a Class A whereas they’ll be less apprehensive about working on a Super C. You can also always bring your Super C motorhome to your local Camping World service center.
