yet you progressed to larger rigs over the years? Going from a C to an A... is not scaling down.

I am of the opinion that sometimes Mother Nature does not play fair with those that enjoy the RV lifestyle, whether full timing (I'm told they are not "camping") and those that do camp to enjoy the outdoors. I like enough space and comfort that if I have to stay in for a couple of days I have the room to do it. Love my 34.6ft Georgetown, tons of room inside and out.

You are correct. However, I suggest it's a matter of degree. Our moving from a 24 ft Class C, to a 29ft Class A, in my eyes, isn't the same a going to a 36, 38, 40 or longer rig. A 29 ft RV certainly isn't considered a big rig.

That said, there is certainly nothing wrong with people loving their big rigs. We have some friends with a Prevost and stacker trailer. They moved to this after hauling a toy box trailer, and absolutely love it. For them, bigger was better. For me, something like this has no appeal.
