Don't miss looking at the newly released Allegro Breeze (Tiffin) as it comes in a shorter lengths than most DP motorhomes. It is getting great raves from the new owners.
We've owned 10 RV's during the past 25 years and as owners of 3 diesel pushers, we'd strongly recommend a Class A DP as a perfect coach for you. The higher end coach you buy, the more things will be automated like the awnings, water hose, electrical hose, and leveling system. You will definitely find a motorhome much easier to deal with than a 5er! Good luck with whatever you decide, it sure beats sitting at home.
