Question Trade B for C

We have a 2016 Era 170X and are thinking about pros and cons of trading for a USED Winnebago class C. We would like just a bit more space but like driving the Era. And I know that we always want the next larger vehicle.
Could I still avoid a tow vehicle, and would length affect that?
What year (range) and models might I find if I want to trade pretty much even up? For example, 2015 View, 2016 Winnie, etc.

We have owned several Class C and one Class B. We currently own our second Trend. I use it much like I did our class B. I elected to sell our second car and I use my trend in town for errands. I am retired so most of the time wife and I go together and us the car.
Winnebago has stopped the Trend line. I believe that the new Ford Fuse is going to replace it.
My experience has been that any of the 24 foot or less can be used as a second vehicle. The one major caution is height. Most are under 11ft. My Trend is 10ft 1 to the highest point.
I don't find width or length a major problem.
Hope this helps.

We just picked up a private party 2014 View and although many owners say they don't need a towed we will be taking ours along almost every time.
We find it easier to setup the MH and camp, and just buzz in and out using the towed.
We equipped the towed many years ago, and although we may loose 1-2 MPG with it behind us we can't complain since our new to us View gets at least double the MPG's than any other MH we've ever owned.
