Thinking about selling my LQ trailer and getting a smaller Class C motorhome with a 2 or 3 horse bumper pull trailer. I want to do some camping as well as barrel racing and think that might work better for me.
Anyone tow with a motorhome?
Pros and cons?

A friend does. It works great for them. Her comment was though they do have to make sure they are early to certain locations where parking can get tricky.

At two different times, we pulled with one and had no problems with pulling power, etc with a 4-horse and then later a 3-horse slant .... We did have "sway bars" on our hitch. The main downfall for us and why we traded back to a living quarters trailer is that it is not as easy to just unhook and run around, etc.

edited to add: I didn't see your Class "C" ...... Both of ours were class "A" motorhomes .....

I've done both and personally love pulling and traveling with our Class C motorhome. I can go to the bathroom traveling down the highway with hubby driving, fix lunch, relax on the couch...etc... For us this is the only way to go and you can forget the trailer is even back there it pulls so good, even in the north arkansas mountains.

Ours is a class A......which I would suggest if you are looking at buying one......we have a 25ft we use now and are selling to upgrade to a little bigger one but it has been perfect...we towed a 2 horse and 3 horse aluminum trailers with ours......

I'm not sure why you only recommend a Class A?? I've been at runs where Martha Josey pulled up in her Class C pulling a 3 horse bumper pull and i also attended a Charmayne James clinic where Charmayne came in a Class C motorhome pulling a 3 horse bumper pull. Our Class C has pulled a loaded down 3 horse bumper pull all over Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama, Texas & Mississippi without the first problem. CJE have you had a bad experience with a Class C?

My best friend and her SO just got one this year, Class C I believe. They love it and say they'll never go back to a gooseneck. We're always in there hanging out. When they go short distances they just hook the truck up. I don't need that much space, I usually haul alone but for a family it would be great. We also live in flat land and don't have to worry too much about being able to haul up hills and such.

We used to pull with a Winnebago MiniWinnie, which I suppose would be a Class C.  It certainly wasn't a whopper of a motorhome.  We pulled a 2 horse trailer with it.   Never knew the trailer was back there, but it was a gas guzzling old gal. 

I don't know what race hauler's classes are, but they tow bumper hitch car haulers with them, a buddy's is 53 feet total, hauler and trailer.  You might look into an older Hauler because then you could haul anything.

I have a 31' Minnie Winnebago, a Sooner 3H slant, a husband, 2 daughters, 200+ pounds of dogs (one is a Great Dane) and....  Yes, we love it. 

Pros - ROOM for every one to be comfortable traveling.  It's a cool place to hang out in the summer, warm in the winter and dry all year round.  We use it for the beach, the lake, the rodeo, it hauls whatever toys we want for that trip.  Pulls the bumper pull trailer without really knowing the trailer is attached.  Class C drives like a truck and you can disconnect and run to town if you really want to.  The total rig is easier to get in and out of the convenience store parking lot that a lot of truck/LQ trailers.  We often take the RV to dinner/softball/other events because it is handy and you can get a lot of friends in there. 
Cons - 6 miles per gallon.  No run around car when you get there.  When we went to Youth World for 10 days, we rented a car in Georgia to run around in.

Now having said all that, my girls are grown and my husband is less interested in tagging along than he used to be.  I'm going to be hauling just myself and a 20 pound dog before long.  I've hauled by myself many times and have been wondering if it would make more sense to go to a truck/small LQ????

I've tagged along with a friend that has one of the big RVs.  It's great when you get there.  It has 4 slides that makes it as big, or bigger, than a hotel suite.  Downside is that you do not want to take it to town because it's so big.

Class A are built more for hauling, heavy duty frame etc...where as the Class C is not and does not have the same hailing capacity ....can you haul with them.....well of course but we choose not to.......
