But that's juxt opposed to the OP's requirements for a small Class C. So, that's not it. The 3500 Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis doesn't come any smaller than 3500 for a Class C cutaway. Sounds like he wants a Class B van. However, there's not one small E450 in a Class B. He's describing an E150, or E250, which again, is the basic van he's wanting.


Nope not what I’m looking for at all. People have already posted links to exactly what I’m looking for and they are available on the 450 Chassis and with the V-10. And if you do the actual math on the Sprinter Chassis motorhomes (not the vans) 5000 pound towed puts you over the GCVWR.

You're not going to find any Compact Cs, on the 2020 E450 Superduty chassis. Were you to find one, it'd be above the $130K price point new. A specialty off road type C.


I guess I don't quite understand what you mean above.

This Coach House Platinum 220 is a 23 foot pretty compact Class C (well maybe it's a Class C - there's no overhead cab bed area) ... and from everything I read on their website they only build this model line of theirs on the E450 Super Duty chassis. So wouldn't a 2020 Ford E450 Super Duty chassis be used under this RV if you ordered one this year?

What you posted is exactly what I’m looking for. This particular model is on the expensive side, but it looks very well built. I’m collecting a list of all these I can find then I’ll figure out which is best for what I want to do. Thanks for the help. If you know of any other manufacturers who make these please post the links. The big guys like Winnebago don’t seem to make them anymore.

Check out Phoenix Cruiser.
Many lengths, floor plans & colors. Ford 450 is popular, but I believe also available in diesel. Tons of options and customizable. A quality rig and a company that stands behind their product.

Many Sprinter mohos can tow 5,000 lbs.

Sprinter cab chassis GVWR = 11,030
Class C Sprinters run very close to or above GVWR
GCWR = 15,250
Max tow capacity at GVWR = 4,220

Increasing the 4220 comes at the expense of reducing OCCC. I meticulously watched my OCCC, and by keeping it under was able to tow more weight than 4220. Have a Wrangler with stuff stuffed inside, and from memory it weighed in at about 4300 or so. As you said, many/most may run over.

I found my mistake. Apparently most manufacturers call what I’m looking for a Class B+. So once I entered that term in Google all kinds popped up. So problem solved.

We own model 2350 that is 23'-8" long, end-to-end for model year 2007. We've had it 13 years now. They are still made today though a few inches longer now.
CLICK HERE to see many pictures of it, inside and outside.

Glad you clarified things as what you said you liked was not meshing with what you posted you were looking for. With that, check out the GulfStream BT Cruisers as they are a more budget friendly B+ model.
