After 17 years of selling all types of RVs to the retail public, it has become
apparent that there are several key factors that customers expect in their RV. The
importance of these items may vary from person to person but they are consistently on
the list when retail customers make their buying decision.
These important items have made our decision, at Nexus RV, to build Class C and Class
B+ motorhomes. Here are the biggest motivators in selecting this type of product when
RVing in North America:
1. Safety- Class C’s and Class B+ products are safer to drive than any other type of
RV made today. The Ford Chassis has dual airbags which is rarely available in the
Class A or Diesel products.
2. Drivability- Driving a Class C is very similar to driving a car or an SUV. This
fact has made it is for first time RVers and RVers that are getting older to maneuver
on the highways and byways. The cockpit is comfortable and lower to the ground and the
driver is behind the front axle giving you more visibility of things around you.
3. Sleeping Capacity- Having the extra bedroom in the overhead is mandatory for many
of those retail customers who have children or grand children that go on trips as a
family. This nice feature allows you to sleep two extra people without opening the
hide a bed sofa in the living room. In the event that you do not need the extra
sleeping the Class B+ product gives you nicely finished entertainment center for those
couples or singles enjoy the RV lifestyle.
4. Serviceability- Because the entire cockpit and front end of the cut-a-way chassis
is like a van, every Ford Service center will work on this product without hesitation.
Unlike the Class A or diesel motorhome, that requires a special service center and or
truck facility to be service, the Class C products can get in and out quickly and
conveniently keeping customers driving down the road.
5. Size- Class C products are typically shorter and lower profile than their Class A
and Diesel big brothers. Many camp ground restrictions make it difficult to own a unit
that is too long or too tall. Class C products are designed to give customers
maneuverability into areas that may be impassable by the bigger Class A products.
6. Price- Class C and Class B+ products have proven to be the best value while keeping
as much of your hard earned money in your pocket. There is anywhere from a $ 25,000-
$ 100,000 difference in the sale price of a Class C and a Class A/Diesel Pusher. This
has made “Right sizing” a thing that is occurring on a daily basis. In a day and age
that banks are requiring a lot of information from retail customers in order to
finance a RV, the Class C product is a great alternative to stay well under $ 100,000
and enjoy the RV lifestyle.
7. Floor Plan- this features ties into the sleeping capacity but is more
comprehensive. The Ford Cut-a-way Chassis gives you 14,500 lbs. This high GVWR allows
for a nice selection of truly functional floorplans. In fact, you can get anything
from a 23′ to a 32′ with three slide-out rooms. Most recently, Driver and Passenger
seats that swivel have become available making the Class C product far more versatile
while maintaining all the elements that make it the product of choice for today’s
At Nexus RV, we believe so strongly in these features that we are building our company
on being the number one factory direct manufacturer of Class C and Class B+ products
in the industry.
