What license do I need in California?

OK.. I have a 2018 Winnebago Forza 38w that is just shy of 40 feet, but has a GVWR of 27,910lbs. Class C only goes up to 26,000lbs GVWR. The "Non Commercial Class B" is for house cars greater than 40 feet and less than 45 feet, but does not mention weight at all. The CA DMV online materials are not clear and I also want to make sure I am studying the right materials for the test. Any help in which license would be great. Please don't just send the link to CA DMV website. :-)

I believe in Calif you require a non commercial special DL. Class B license required for over 26,000 pounds or 40 feet.

According to this California Driver License Classes page the Basic Class C License is good for "any housecar 40 feet or less."
