Coachmen RV: A great cost-effective way to begin your RV lifestyle

RVing in a Class-C RV is a fun and rewarding experience. They sleep quite a few folks for their size, and they get better mileage than their Class-A counterparts. They’re also compatible with more RV parks than Class-A rigs because of their shorter length and nimbler agility. They’re also more affordable to buy as well as run.

Tale of the Tape

The Coachmen Leprechaun is 26 feet long. The 305-horsepower V-10 pairs with a 5-speed automatic transmission for a smooth ride. The 4 kW gas generator will power many appliances inside, including the three-burner stove and built-in microwave. The unexpected walk-in shower is a nice touch for a Class-C RV.

The 2022 Coachmen Leprechaun 319 is still a Class-C RV, but it’s longer than the Class-C RV Coachmen 23CB at 33 feet. Obviously, it sleeps more folks and has more amenities. However, because it’s more than five feet longer and therefore heavier, and because it has the same engine as the Coachmen Leprechaun 23CB, it gets slightly worse gas mileage. The Coachmen Leprechaun 319 has a six-speed transmission that mitigates the inferior mileage. Contact us for mileage tips.


The Class C RV Coachmen 23CB is a luxury model in the Coachmen RV line. Wood paneling and cabinetry is adorned with attractive, brushed-aluminum fixtures. The couch and kitchen areas convert to sleepers so that even a family with five children will find comfortable places to sleep.

The Coachmen Leprechaun 319 has cherry wood cabinetry and a slightly larger refrigerator, making it even more luxurious than the 23CB. Instead of seven, it sleeps eight. The biggest bed is a queen.

Towing Capacity

When it comes to the 2022 Coachmen Leprechaun models, both have great towing capacity. The 23CB is rated for 5,000 pounds, and the 319 is rated for 7.500 pounds. Call for towing safety tips.

Outside Perks

Both of these models have power retractable awnings for some nice shade outdoors on hot days. The 319 also has an outside shower so that two people can shower at once. With just six gallons of hot water available at a time, however, you have to shower quickly!

Both models have exterior ladders for reaching the roof. Both also have adjustable television antennas.


Either the 23CB or the 319 will serve your open-road needs admirably. They offer lots of space for their size, and the amenities are top-drawer for the price that you pay for one of these Coachmen Leprechaun RVs.
