Class C Motorhome
Most of the visitors on this are familiar with the motorhome classifications but for those who are not here is a quick general reference guide.
• Class A – Full Size Motor Coach
• Class B – Camper Van
• Class C – “Mini Motorhome”
Class C Motorhomes are often referred to as Alcove or Cab-Over Motorhomes as they commonly have a double berth (sleeping area) over the driving cab. This is combined with a caravan style body of medium length, usually 22 to 33 feet long.
Class C motorhomes are advantageous because the owner receives better gas mileage like a camper van but has more self contained accommodations like a full size Class A motorhome. This class of motorhome is considered semi-integrated as sometimes the cab is separate from the camper portion, similar to a truck with a camper shell. Toyota Motorhomes are iconic as they were some of the first Class C motorhomes to hit the road back in the 70s.
Toyota Motorhome History
Today most major motorhome manufactures utilize the Ford E Series chassis to base their motorhome designs on, however back in 1970s they used the Toyota Truck.
This is the truck that the Toyota Tacoma was originally based on, but at the time was simply known as the Toyota Pickup in the United States or the Toyota Hilux in international markets.
Motorhomes were made on the standard duty Toyota truck chassis from 1977 to 1985 before moving to a one-ton cab and chassis in 1986. Motorhome makers continued to fabricate their shells on Toyota trucks until 1993 when weight restrictions caused them to move to the Ford E-Series (E450/550) Econoline chassis.
