If you have a large family and are unsure where to begin in your search for a motorhome, we’re here to help. With all the different manufacturers, classes, sizes and floor plans, it feels overwhelming at times. But, don’t fret; this week’s blog will make the choice simple.
Class C motorhomes are perfect for large families because of their versatility. They’re more spacious and powerful than a camper van but have a larger sleeping capacity, much like a Class A motorhome, without the intimidating size. Once you learn more about our two picks for the best Class C RVs for large families — Quantum and Magnitude — you’ll be ready to take on the journey with your family.
Quantum comes in six unique floor plans, all with unique layouts for sleeping, living and dining. The floor plans sleep six to seven, depending on which one you like best. Our call-out is the LF31 floor plan, the bunkhouse model. LF31 features bunk beds, a queen-sized bed, a jack-knife sofa, a cab-over sleeping area and a Dream Dinette® that converts into a sleeping area. Everyone in the family has their own place to rest their head before taking on the day. If you need help deciding on a floor plan, our Coach Link® Sales Advisors are ready to assist you.
Depending on which floor plan you land on, you’ll either have a Ford® E-Series or Chevy® Express chassis. Both of which are highly regarded among current owners. Models over 31-feet, including the LF31, have the SmoothTECH® suspension system. This ride enhancement is even trusted on ambulances for a plain-sailing trip to any destination. Conveniences continue behind the wheel in the LF31 floor plan, with a 7-inch touchscreen dash radio with Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay® and a backup monitor.
Quantum is filled with features that the whole family appreciates, starting with entertainment. LF31’s bunk beds each come with a tablet holder and USB charger, along with a 39-inch TV on a swivel bracket in the living area and a 32-inch TV in the bedroom. Winegard® ConnecT™ 2.0 works as a WiFi extender, 4G hotspot and TV antenna, so everyone can watch their favorite show. There’s also an exterior 32-inch TV with a built-in Bluetooth® soundbar for family gatherings under the powered patio awning. Trust us, in the LF31, being bored is never an option — even on rainy days.
Magnitude is available in five* floor plans, with a similar family-friendly focus. Every floor plan sleeps eight people, so no one gets left behind — including your pet. We’re going to highlight the BT36 floor plan, the bath and a half layout. The owner’s bedroom is a private oasis, including a full bath and a large wardrobe. Choose the optional sofa for an extra place to sleep, along with the cab-over bunk and Dream Dinette conversion sleeping area. As always, feel free to contact Coach Link for help finding the right model for your family.
Magnitude is built on the Ford F-600 chassis, giving these motorhomes a more spacious interior, with BT36 at a length of almost 38-feet. The diesel engine provides plenty of power, even while hauling a trailer on the floor plan’s 12,000-pound hitch. Safety features on this model include audible lane-departure warning, pre-collision assist with emergency braking and auto headlights. No matter where you take your family, you’ll feel safe in this motorhome.
People say that the way to peoples' hearts is through their stomachs, which is why we’ll be highlighting the BT36 floor plan’s kitchen. Reminiscent of a residential home, this model features a double door refrigerator, double bowl sink with a pull-down sprayer, decorative tile backsplash and a pop-up outlet for additional appliances. To create all of your family’s homemade recipes, there’s a 2-burner gas cooktop and an over-the-range convection microwave.
