They are both class C's but some like to split the class, calling those that are built on a medium duty truck or heavy duty truck as super C. I do not believe it is a true designation.

The Super C's are generally larger, our's sits as tall as the Class A. Most also have a more powerful Diesel engine. Jayco Seneca is a super c, 13'5" tall and 39' long. Their regular Class C is 26'3" long and 11'7" tall. The Seneca is built on the Freightliner M2 chassis with the 6.7 Cummings 340 HP Diesel. The regular class c is built on the Ford E450 Triton gas engine or Chevrolet 4500 chassis with 6L Vortec Diesel engine. Pretty big difference between a regular class c and a super c.

Specs show Seneca at 13'1" which I hope it is close as over 13' makes me nervous with highway clearances.
I see the primary difference in C and Super C being the diesel truck chassis allowing for larger rigs and higher weight ratings.

Most of the new FW are 13'5" with minimum highway clearance of 14'.

As to "C" vs Super "C" there are both gas and diesel in both. JAYCO made numerous SENECA's on the gas KODIAK chassis.

The "SUPER C" designation was a marketing tool that one manufacturer came up with and it just happen to stick.

Excuse my mistake WaltW, but you are correct, just a tad under at 13.08 tall.

Grumpy, brands shouldn't determine the classification. I.E., Seneca was available as a C and Super C. The classifications seem to be consistent across mfgrs. Thor has the same brand available as C and Super C and distinguishes between them. The differences seem to be gas (C) vs diesel (Super C), and in most cases Super C's have big rig chassis like Freightliner or International... although Thor calls their Ford diesel MH's Super C's.

SENECA's were never in two different classifications. When JAYCO came out with the first gas KODIAK chassis "C" they were called GREYHAWKS, that name was changed on that gas chassis (in a very short time) and it was moved to the SENECA line-up.

SENECA HG, was gas and the SENECA HD was diesel. SENECA ZX was the toyhauler.

If you currently look at JAYCO's web-site there is "NO"mention of SUPER C the Redhawk, Greyhawk and Seneca are all listed under " C" it is not a RVIA classification what so ever. The term "C" refers to any cab and chassis conversion, not chassis size.

You are correct Grumpy. But when you ask and search for Super C motorhomes the Seneca comes up. Sales people are also calling them Super C's and yes it is because since 2012 they have been building them on the Freightliner M2 Chassis. All Class C's that I have ever seen or read about on that type chassis are called super c. The chassis and size are a big difference.
