Class C RVs Less Than $200,000

© Tiffin MotorhomesClass C RVs Less Than $200,000
Unlike Class A motorhomes (huge, bus-size vehicles) and Class B RVs (small van chassis, a bit cramped), Class C RVs can be a right-sized choice for folks who want maximum living space, comfort and storage without having to pilot a stress-inducing vehicle. Class C RVs are typically built with a van cab and cutaway chassis, so the layout of the cockpit mimics common vans or large passenger vehicles, helping drivers feel more at home behind the wheel. Class C RV prices can seem like they approach the stratosphere; however, to stick with versions that are slightly more affordable, we’ve compiled a selection of entry-level models with starting prices less than $200,000.

Coach House Platinum 220 TB

Coach House Platinum 220 TB
Estimated Base MSRP: $164,000
Chassis: Ford
Fuel Capacity: 55 gallons
Length: 23 feet 2 inches
Height: 10 feet 5 inches
Estimated Towing Capacity: 7,500 pounds
Built on Ford’s 158-inch E-450 commercial truck chassis, the Platinum series from Coach House has a powerful V10 engine. The “home” part of this motorhome is a one-piece fiberglass shell reinforced with carbon fiber that makes it quieter than other RV units built in sections. (Note that RV and motorhome are used interchangeably throughout this article. Technically speaking, a motorhome is a self-propelled RV — so a teardrop trailer also is an RV, but it is not a motorhome.)
