Class C RV’s are the most common type of RV. Class C RV’s are characterized by the large bed directly over the drivers cabin. Class C’s are available in many sizes. I have seen them as small as 22’ and as larger are 35’. These motorhomes tend to sleep more people than a similar sized Class A as you get that extra bed over the driver. Most Class C RV’s allow you to walk from the driver’s area into the cabin of the RV, but I have seen exceptions to this, so it is always good to ask before you rent the RV if this is important to you. This RV will tend to be a little easier to drive compared to a Class A motorhome because the wheelbase is much more similar to regular passenger vehicles. In the end this is the most popular type of RV simply because of the extra sleeping space that it provides. Class C RV’s can be rented from almost any major city across the US including, Phoenix (PHX), Los Angeles (LAX), Chicago (ORD) San Francisco (SFO), Denver (DEN),Boston (BOS) Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), Ft Lauderdale (FLL) Las Vegas (LAS), RENO (RNO), New York City (NYC), Dallas (DFW), Salt Lake City (SLC), and Seattle (SEA).

When most people think of So-Cal they think of Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Malibu. For the wine lover, winemaking has been taking place in these wine regions since the late 1700s. Grab some lunch and road trip up to the high elevation wineries in Malibu. Elevations range from sea level to 3,111 feet at Sandstone Peak. The newly granted Malibu Coast AVA is mainly in the Santa Monica Mountains and is about 46 miles long and 8 miles wide and includes 198 acres of vines for 52 grape growers. The high elevation in this “region’s climate, soils and unique aspects affect the taste of the wine produced.” Check out this post, by Wine Folly for an easy to understand write up of why that’s important. Why does this matter? It matters because the combination produces the delicious wine we know and love in Malibu.
While driving along the coast, don’t forget to stop by Mission San Diego de Alcala, as they are home to the oldest grapes in California. About an hour northeast of San Diego, off the beaten path, you can stumble upon Temecula. Best known for their Italian and Rhône varietals and the annual Balloon and Wine Festival. The Cucamonga Valley should also be on your hit list. Famous for preserving the past with historic vineyards and ranches and their old-vine Zinfandel and Portstyle wines.
