Hi Ichatman,
The first word in your question is "IF". I would agree with an answer you got from SteveLevine. He said it right. If you have not purchased yet, I would think tire size would be on the bottom of the list of likes or dislikes. Some things are more easily changed than others. Find the coah you want, and put tire size on the back burner. good travels, old trucker

Is the GVRW the chassis weight? Then I have a 22,000 pound chassis. The 22.5 tires were not offered on the model I brought but the next year it was. My husband said that he liked the 22.5 idea because of the ride. Because I am a planner I was just thinking if I could consider them as an option down the road.

The 22.5s will hold more weight which is always nice. I had a 34' motorhome with 19.5s and now have a 39' motorhome with 22.5s (both gas). I would never go back to the smaller tires. I feel the larger ones handle better and raise the rig us slightly so you are not as apt to drag anything.
