When we decided to upgrade we decided to go for a 34-36'. We ended up buying a 40'. WE are very happy with our choice. We found the floor plans in most of the smaller MH's just didn't suit us. Go look and sit in all from big to small. There are some remarkable bargains in the used market. The longer ones don't require much more maintenance than the short ones, in general. Don't worry about driving either, its not that big a deal. Caveat: not every National Forest campground can accommodate a 45'.

We went with a 36' model with a single slide. We are very pleased with this size and floor plan. We are able to travel camp and use our Dynasty with out having to move our slide in or out and still have access to all our comforts as well as our walk around Queen Bed. This model has a Washer/Dryer combo, full pass thru storage with a tray as well as all the other. We are not full timers but for the two of us we have had plenty of room for month long travel. Our only campground problems has been height at certain locations with poorly trimmed trees.

One thing to watch out for with the bigger DP.
They may have more storage space but not necessary have the CCC to carry anything in that space.

A 34' could have much more CCC then a 40' unless you get a tag one.

I don't think so.

I don't think that is the case with most DP's on the market. My 34' DP has a CCC of about 5000lbs. Most 40-45' ers can do at least that and usually much more. Not that I need more, we carry about 2500 including the two of us. CCC is just one of the many advantages in going with any DP vs. a gasser.
