I can walk from the back of the house to the driver's seat without the risk of banging my head on that stupid overhead bed.

Off to warmer climates, nothing like it in the world for me.

My next favorite time is getting back home six months later to 3000 sq ft and water pressure and my own back yard and garage woodshop.

I appreciate what you are saying. My wife decided to go back to work and we moved the MH to a campsite about three hours away from home where she will be doing a contract job till the end of the year. We have done several short trips and several back to back short trips. Two weeks here two weeks there etc. We came home for the weekend to our stick house and I could not get over how big the 600 sq ft bedroom was compared to the bedroom in the MH. I am not saying I like it better it just felt so huge

Over the years have gone from tent trailer, 5th wheel, class C, and now Class A,
As all have posted, basically everything is better
5th wheel way too intense
Class C very nice just not big enough and towing was harder
Class A, no issues, grab a drink or sandwich while cruising "nice", overall better ride
Class A all the way

Sorry just could not name one!!

I like having my Jeep toad to run arround the mountains of CO rather than a large full-size pickup.

We are FT, and we love the size of our large Class A! We also like pulling our Jeep toad. The coach does not even know it's there!

Size, washer/dryer, being able to get up and go to the kitchen or bathroom (autopilot engaged obviously), towing my Sport Trac.

Now that we own a class A, DW is no longer bugging me to buy a class A.

Impossible to name just one..... I guess the top of my list would be the level of comfort I immediately feel when I get behind the wheel and pull out on the road.... Quiet Power and weight that lets me feel like I rule the portion of the road I'm current moving down... Only feel that in a Class A....

I like my huge front window. My tiffin has a one piece window and when I am driving around the country I like that it does not restrict my vision and I can manage to see some of the beautiful scenery in our great country.
. People think because you have a class A coach it's like a Greyhound Bus that holds 40. Or 50 people. My standard answer is: I can seat 6, feed 4 and sleep 2....

We've had about everything there is in rv's but what works for us is the Class A. Eeveryone enjoy your travels.

Steve~n~Sal,

Maybe this video from "Jeff Daniels UP Tour Webisode" can help you learn to drive and use the bathroom facilities at the same time
