because the 22" tire is on a larger chasis. larger chasis & more wieght = more stable driving experience. its the same reason that a 32' MH w/ no slides & weighs only 16k lbs feels a lot more squirrely on the road than a 35' MH that weighs 22k lbs.i'm not infering that there major jump like moving to a DP, but it is a step up from the 19.5" wheel. if the simple physics dont make sense, you can also swing by any large dealer lot that sells a variety of rigs. you'll see a difference in a few things besides the price tag.
i'm not positive about the Thor ACE, but i'm almost positive the Daybreak, Windsport, and Hurricane are only offered on the 19.5" wheel chasis. I'm not trying to make a blanket statement, but i can tell you i looked at a heck of a lot of rigs literally side by side, and across various manurfacturers.
Without sparking controversy, i've only suggested to the OP that his Windsport is no better and no worse than the other gasers in the Thor lineup, which is what he was asking. All of that lineup is of rough equal quality. i've owned 2 different ones now and i've looked at every one of them side by side in person.
