We have a 2001 and I really like the size. We can usually park anywhere. Storage is adequate. Guess we all just have to figure out what we really need to take. My problem is that I am involved in quite a few motor sports and carry quite a few spares and tools. As work2play noted, the liquid carrying capacities of these coaches is quite nice. With the 34 (really 35), we have been able to get into the state parks, where some folk we know with 40s are not able to go. We take our MH off road quite a bit and you do have to be careful, because the front end of Alpines has to be one of the lowest around. Also, the step hangs below the body and I have had to replace a couple of times. All in all, I really like the motorhome. We have owned it for almost four years.
