P30 and C30 chassis questions???

I've been looking at mohos recently, mostly from the 70s and 80s.

Most say they have a P30 chassis. Some say they have a C30 chassis.

Is there a real difference in terms of performance/reliability/durability and most importantly getting parts?

I've been focused on mohos with the 454, either airstream or some vintage kin like Barth.

Any guidance on the relative difference between the chassis or if one or the other should be a deal killer would be much appreciated.

C30 is the heaviest duty pickup chassis, P30 is the stepvan chassis. My guess is that you are finding class "C" motorhomes on C30 chassis, and class "A" motorhomes on P30 chassis. I don't know about the relative merits of their suspensions, but my guess is that the drivetrain components as far back as the transmission would be the same.
