Why we recommend the Thor Chateau class C motorhome: Our very first choice is an obvious one if you’ve been following our top 5 posts for a while. The Thor Chateau Class C motorhome has it all: from a variety of specs and the variation in their respective floorplans to the features, which we’ll be talking about below. If you’re looking for ones with more slideouts, we recommend taking a look at the Chateau 28E and the Chateau 30D floorplans.

In terms of features, the Chateau is as durable on the outside as it is comfortable on the inside. You’ll find the sturdy aluminum frame with a stylish look and a one piece TPO roof when you take a look on the inside. Step in and it’s clear that there are a number of security measures added apart from the comfort of the ceiling ducted air conditioner or the fabric dream dinette booth. Apart from these, Thor has also thrown a variety of upgrades/expansions into the mix, rendering it a top choice if you’re in the market for small motorhomes with slideouts!

No. of Floorplans Unloaded Weight Sleeps Length
20 8140-12728 lbs 5-8 23-31 feet

Why we recommend Coachmen Freelander class C motorhome: Apart from a higher sleeping capacity and a lighter dry weight, there isn’t a lot of difference between the Coachmen Freelander Class C motorhome and our previous choice, the Thor Chateau. Floorplans like the Freelander 26DS Chevy 4500 and the Freelander 31BH Ford 450 offer more slideouts, but there are others which offer different layouts as well!

Depending on the floorplan you choose the Freelander offers varying features, but the ones that remain the same are nutmeg wood grain cabinets, the jackknife sofa, the U-shaped dinette among others. If you wish to add more features, you could so with the list of options provided. There are many of them, so be sure to check them out by clicking on the link above to see and decide for yourself if this is the motorhome with slideout that’s the one for you.

No. of Floorplans Unloaded Weight Sleeps Length
12 12500-14500 lbs 5-8 24-32 feet

Why we recommend the Gulf Stream Conquest class C motorhome: If bunkhouses are a must in your hunt for small motorhomes with slideouts, then look no further than the Conquest Class C by Gulf Stream RVs. They’re Spacious, they’re durable and each and every one of them offers a bunk over cab and hence a sleeping capacity of 5 people at the very least. Of course, floorplans like the Conquest C 6317 and the Conquest C 63111 are recommended as they have 2 slideouts as well.

Like the freelander, there are slight variations of features depending on which floorplan you go after. For the most part, however, they’re the same. Shower skydome, beautifully designed cabinetry (Roarke Cherry), system monitor control, necessary kitchen appliances, you name it and the Conquest has it. Well, most of it inbuilt, and the rest of it available through a list of upgrades available such as power leveling jacks and an attic fan.

No. of Floorplans Unloaded Weight Sleeps Length
18 10288-12867 lbs 5-9 24-32 feet

Why we recommend the Coachmen Leprechaun class C motorhome: Another one of Coachmen’s finest is the Leprechaun class C that has a sleeping capacity of up to 9 people in the Leprechaun 310BH Ford 450 floorplan. Of course, it goes without saying that there are other floorplans with slideouts such as the Leprechaun 319MB Ford 450 among others available too. Since it has 18 floorplans in total, there’s enough layouts available to ensure that you’ll find one that’s just perfect for you.

There’s a reason why this rig scored itself a 4.5 out of 5 star rating. The Leprechaun impressed us with its features just as much, if not more than what it did with its specifications. Patio awning, vinyl flooring, solar panel connection, night shades, exterior warehouse storage are just a few of its features which are based on a solid aluminum framing and fiberglass sidewalls. All in all, we have no qualms about recommending the Leprechaun as one of the best small motorhomes with slideouts in the market right now!

The Comfy Camper For Couples!

View All Coachmen Galleria Class B Motorhome Floorplans!

No. of Floorplans Unloaded Weight Sleeps Length
4 8935-8882 lbs 2 24 feet

Why we recommend Coachmen Galleria class B motorhome: For us, the Galleria is to couples what the Leprechaun is to people with a lot of camping buddies: perfection. The spacious 24 feet floorplans can sleep 2 people and offer lots of storage and features, making it suitable for couples who would prefer a spacious motorhome for their next camping trip. We recommend taking a look at the Galleria 24D and the Galleria 24Q floorplans.

Heading onto the features, you’ll find that the Galleria spared no expense in making sure that you end up with a quality motorhome. From the deal breakers such as 80-inch queen style residential bed to the small stuff like swiveling seats for the driver and passanger, they’ve paid attention to every detail. It’s also obvious that a motorhome this great will also have upgrades available, and there are over 30 of them available with the Galleria, so we recommend taking a look at all of them by checking out the RV page.
