Check out the "Class C" motorhomes from Coachmen in both traditional C types with bunks over the cab and also B+ versions. They use the Ford E-350 chassis for some models and the Chevy 4500 for others so you have a choice of both as well as differing floor plans.

What I particularly like is their use of compressor fridges and propane cooktops and ovens. The 4500 RVs also have a 4000W generator and very large fuel tanks.
Yes, If you are referring to the Leprechaun and Freelander I like the large storage bays in the rear, 50 gals of FW, and the large gas tank. If the actual weight is close the the GAWR front and rear the Chevy would 4500 Chevy would have better weight distribution than the Ford 350. I don't know if anyone else has noticed the axel weight ratings of each chassis or have actual weights front and back for the 21QB models.

I think that the overhead of a standard Class C is a good thing for storage, etc., but would prefer no front or side windows to develop leaks and need re-sealing over time. If you have kids/grandkids or guests sleeping in overhead, opening side windows are probably worth having along with curtains and privacy drapes. Another good thing is shade from overhead, less sun glare. Class C's with overheads are more plentiful used.

Side issue, I prefer a 27 foot Class C with rear RV queen bed to a 24 footer with less storage cabinetry and lesser sleeping comfort overhead and jacknife sofa bed.
