I also went from a 5er (a new Excel 33' w/2 slides) to a used 32' Winnebago gasser. I've since upgraded just a tad, and can certainly second the bit about driving in a crosswind. I used to fight the same wind, in the 32', that I now don't really notice.
But I DO remember the first time I was driving the original MH, and it was raining, and I really had to go to the bathroom. So I pulled over, walked back, relieved my tensions, and just had a huge grin on my face as I walked back up to the driver's seat.
In general, I think that the 5er might be better if you're going to sit for 6 months at a time, whereas the MH is better with more travelling. In my case, however, I simply wanted to be able to go up into the 4-wheel drive trails in Colorado, and that's really tough with an F350 PSD!!! So it just made more sense. We all have out own reasons ....
