2016 Winnebago ERA 70c. 6500 miles. This is our second Class B, the first being a Roadtrek SS Agile. We looked at many of the popular Sprinter based B vans, driving and spending hours debating features. We are over 65 and look for features that make touring and camping easier and more fun. Hands down, the larger more functional dry bath and additional space provided by the slide out made the decision easier. After living with the 70c for a while, we are convinced it was the right decision for us. We are both amazed at the interior room. Most of its systems work well. We've had a few small issues and one larger problem. I'm good at fixing things and went right to work taking care of the small things, adjusting cabinet and drawer latches, adding a paper towel holder, fixed rattling screens, added a soap/shampoo dispenser in the shower, shelf paper in cabinets, repaired nonworking LED light over the sink, precision balanced the tires, removed the long vertical pole near the sliding door, added a slightly larger tv, added a folding cup holder near the couch, bought a 1.5" memory foam topper for the bed (stored in the rear storage area), and bought nice gray mats for the front. The only semi major issue was a sometimes faulty power transfer switch. Our local dealers are mostly clueless so I ordered a new switch ($111.),found where it was hidden behind the circuit breaker box,and replaced it myself. I like a really smooth ride at 72 mph. It seems it's hard to get the dual wheels to balance smoothly. I had our best tire company forgo the stick on weights and use the regular knock on weights. They are finally running smooth. We average around 17.5 mpg. Our best has been 22.4 mpg and worst has been 16 mpg. Our final debate was between the 70a and the 70c. The larger dry bath and extra space was the final decision point. We are not large people, 5' 10" and 5'3", normal weight. The bed is comfortable and resonable for our size. If you are much taller or heavy, the 70a might be a better choice. Good luck and happy RVing.
