Susan and I own a Class C RV that is under 25 feet. It’s a 2008 Gulf Stream Conquest that is 24 feet long and we love it for a variety of reasons. But it can be tough to find the perfect, compact Class C RV under 25 feet in 2024. While there are tons of large models available, finding everything you need in a small Class C RV under 25 feet can be a challenge.

We love the benefits you get from our smaller size Class C RV. Being able to drive and park easily and camp easily at national parks is worth searching for the perfect compact Class C RV.

Our list of the ten best small Class C RVs under 25 feet for 2024 is a great place to start your search.

What’s The Difference Between A Class C And A Class A?

The difference between a Class C and a Class A isn’t always size. There are some massive Class Cs and Super Cs out there, after all. The difference is mostly in the design and the chassis. For one, Class C is built in two parts: the cab section and the living section. A Class A is one, whole part.

Class Cs, with a few exceptions, mostly benefit from more maneuverability, smaller size, and a smaller invasion of your bank account. Class As usually have more slides, as well, though that’s not always the case. Mostly, Class Cs are allowed into most state and national parks, while there are some Class As that aren’t allowed, based on size and weight.

As usual, however, the biggest difference between a Class A and a Class C, is consumer preference.

10 Best Class C RVs Under 25 Feet in 2024

These 2024 Class C RVs under 25 feet offer the luxury of most motorhomes in a much smaller package, along with the freedom to park and camp just about anywhere you can imagine.

1. Dynamax Isata 3 24RW

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Rear slide allows for a separate bathroom and excellent space throughout

⛔ Window shades use magnetic strips

  • Length: 24.6′
  • Chassis: Mercedes Benz Sprinter
  • Engine: Mercedes Benz V6
  • GVWR: 11,030 lbs
  • Towing Capacity: 5,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

The rear slide of the Dynamax Isata 3 24RW is such an underutilized feature in the RV industry. You just don’t see it that often. However, it works well in the design of the Isata’s interior, allowing for much more space throughout.

Even when the slide is in, you still maintain full access to the kitchen and the bathroom as well, which is one of those highly convenient features often overlooked by new RVers. With a full kitchen, large living space, and large bathroom, you won’t feel like you’re in a small Class C either.

2. Leisure Wonder Rear Lounge

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Solid gas mileage with the 3.5L twin, turbocharged V6

⛔ Left and right-hinged fridge is easy to break

  • Length: 24′ 9″
  • Chassis: Ford Transit
  • Engine: EcoBoost V6
  • GVWR: 11,000 lbs
  • Towing Capacity: N/A
  • Sleep: 2

The Leisure Wonder Rear Lounge is one of those Class C RVs under 25 feet that can easily be confused with a Class B. It’s mostly in the shape, which resembles a singular, campervan-style design. The interior space is surprisingly intuitive, however.

The rear couch converts into a bed, which expands the interior space. There’s also a sizeable bathroom that’s split down the middle. The kitchen is upfront and compact, but more than viable, despite its small size. The Leisure Wonder is a fantastic option for couples or weekend getaways.

3. Thor Compass AWD 23TW

Thor Compass AWD 23TW Exterior

Thor Compass AWD 23TW Floorplan Class C Under 25 Feet

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Highly maneuverable with the perfect size for nearly every parking situation

⛔ Plastic toilet

  • Length: 23′ 7″
  • Chassis: Ford Transit
  • Engine: EcoBoost V6
  • GVWR: 11,000 lbs
  • Towing Capacity: 5,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 4

The Thor Compass AWD 23TW features a full wall slide that really opens things up on the inside. In addition, you can flip up the queen bed for even more living and breathing space.

It includes two TVs, so you can catch your favorite shows whether you’re lying in bed for the day or lounging in the living room.

The bathroom is small but full-featured and dry. There’s even enough space to include a large wardrobe that takes up most of the back end. If you have storage needs, the odds are good this Class C RV under 25 feet will provide.

4. Gulfstream BT Cruiser 5210

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Dual-opposing jack-knife sofas offer plenty of sitting and lounging space

⛔ Small counter space

  • Length: 22′ 1″
  • Chassis: Ford E350
  • Engine: 350 hp V8
  • GVWR: 12,500 lbs
  • Towing Capacity: 5,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 4

The second Class C without slides on our list is the Gulfstream BT Cruiser 5210. However, this one doesn’t resemble a Class B. As small as it is, Gulfstream went with a split, modular-like arrangement.

The front half features a three-part combination of bed, dual-opposing jack-knife sofas, and a dinette. The back half includes an open kitchen area, with a large wardrobe, and the full, dry-bath taking up a slice of the back.

It’s an interesting arrangement and it works well. When you lack the space for everything, simply combine multiple, major features into one.

5. Nexus Triumph Phantom 23P

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Large amount of interior room with plenty of counter space and a bright aesthetic

⛔ Bathroom is all separated, with the toilet within a water closet

  • Length: 25′
  • Chassis: Ford E350
  • Engine: 325 hp V8
  • GVWR: 12,500 lbs
  • Towing Capacity: 7,500 lbs
  • Sleep: 5

Right at the 25′ limit, the Nexus Triumph Phantom 23P features a more traditional Class C RV arrangement. Most of your utility is in the front, with sleeping arrangements in the back.

The bathroom arrangement is a little weird, but it’s only weird in the fact that you have to get used to it.

All three elements of the bathroom are split up, with the sink being a part of the bedroom, the shower taking up the back corner, and the toilet relegated to a water closet. It seems like the idea was to maximize space by spreading out the components of a traditional bathroom.

8. Winnebago Minnie Winnie 22R

Winnebago Minnie Winnie 22R Exterior

Winnebago Minnie Winnie 22R Floorplan Class C Under 25 Feet

Our Pros and Cons

✅ A ton of sleeping space with a rear bed, over-cab bunk, and convertible dinette

⛔ Very entry-level tech

  • Length: 23.8′
  • Chassis: Ford E350
  • Engine: 350 hp V8
  • GVWR: 12,500 lbs
  • Towing Capacity: 7,500 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

The Winnebago Minnie Winnie 22R takes the best of the Winnebago Minnie and shrinks it, without sacrificing much in the way of amenities. The back half consists of a split arrangement between the bed and a full, dry bath, with a massive U-dinette taking up a large section of the front half.

You also get a bunk over the cab, which is capable of holding up to 750 lbs. The kitchen is a little short on counter space, but you can make up for it with the dinette table behind you. There’s also enough room for a sizeable wardrobe, just behind the kitchen, which can easily double as a pantry.

9. Gulfstream Conquest 6220LE

Gulfstream Conquest 6220LE Exterior Class C Under 25 Feet
Gulfstream Conquest 6220LE Interior

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Beautiful interior with rich cabinetry on a white backsplash

⛔ Could use a fold-up table for extra counter space

  • Length: 24′
  • Chassis: Ford E350
  • Engine: Vortec V8
  • GVWR: 12,500 lbs
  • Towing Capacity: 7,500 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

Of the ten Class C RVs under 25 feet on this list, the Gulfstream Conquest 6220LE probably has the richest interior aesthetic. There are tons of cabinets in the front half, covering all of your dry goods and alternative storage needs.

The fold-down dinette table opens up the interior some more as well. Like the Minnie Winnie, you also get the bunk bed over the cab. With the dinette converting into a bed, this Class C is capable of sleeping up to 6 people.

10. Thor Motor Coach Four Winds 22B

Thor Motor Coach Four Winds 22B  Exterior Class C Under 25 Feet

Our Pros and Cons

✅ Ceiling-ducted air conditioning system

⛔ Privacy curtain may not be enough for some couples

  • Length: 24.1′
  • Chassis: Ford E350
  • Engine: Vortec V8
  • GVWR: 12,500 lbs
  • Towing Capacity: 8,000 lbs
  • Sleep: 6

Last but not least on our list of Class C RVs under 25 feet, is the Thor Motor Coach Four Winds 22B. The rear slide opens up the bedroom space and, thanks to the corner-door design of the bathroom, it doesn’t restrict bathroom access when the slide is in.

There is plenty of space in the kitchen, with a flip-up, C-top table adding to the counter space. There’s even a dedicated pantry as well. The dream dinette is an excellent included feature as well, with plenty of sitting room for family or the occasional guests. Again, you also get the cab-over-bunk for larger sleeping counts.

How Much Do Class C RVs Under 25 Feet Cost?

The cost of a Class C RV is generally dependent on the type of Class C.

  • Super C: $150k to $550k
  • Class C Diesel: $70k to $275K
  • Class C Gas: $40k to $200k

Class C RVs under 25 feet are generally gasoline Class Cs, placing them in the cheapest bracket of Class C RVS. There are always outliers and options, which drive the price up or down, depending. For instance, purchasing a stock, factory Class C is much cheaper than purchasing the same Class C with a ton of extra options.

Should I Buy an Extended Warranty for My Class C RV?

Yes, you should buy an extended warranty for your RV – but not from a dealership! Unfortunately, your odds of suffering a major mechanical breakdown go up with every passing year.

Based on RV Warranty claims records, more than 3 out of every 10 RVs will need major repairs in only their second year on the road. This skyrockets to 8 out of 10 in their fifth year and virtually

All of them are in their eighth year! Today’s RVs are increasingly more complex, and with more things going wrong, the need to protect your investment is more important than ever.

Our RV Warranty plans allow you to change your mind! If you’re looking to sell your RV to a private party, you can absolutely transfer the policy to the new owner. Additionally, if you are trading in your RV, or getting out of RVing altogether, you can cancel your policy for a pro-rated refund.

We bought a warranty through Wholesale Warranties for several reasons:

  • We can cancel the warranty at any time and get a pro-rated refund
  • We can transfer the warranty to the new owner if we decide to sell our RV
  • There are no mileage caps on our policy
  • We can use repair shops all across the country
  • We can use a mobile repair company right at our campsite
  • The price is way better than most dealerships
  • We could finance the cost of the warranty
  • With parts and labor prices increasing all the time, we have peace of mind

You owe it to yourself to at least check out a warranty and get a free quote to see if it is right for you. It just takes a few minutes and you will learn a ton about protecting your investment. We only recommend products we use ourselves and we highly recommend you get a free quote from Wholesale Warranties.
