If there was any doubt before it has faded into oblivion.

For me it is the safety. You sit up high and can see over the cars in front of you. You can see the car way up ahead of the others when it slams on brakes and you can start braking ahead of time. When you pull into a rest area late at night and someone pulls in behind you and you don't like their looks, You simply crank up and move on. No getting out and going to the tow vehicle to leave. For the wife it is being able to lie down on the couch for a thirty minute rest when on long trips. For both of us it is the rest room that is always accessible.

I just love our 2005 SunVoyager Class A just wished we could have purchased a DP but the price tags are just too high. I agree with all the above and should have gone from a TT to the Class A rather than to a 5th wheel before the class A. Now 65 plus but still working so do not get out much, but love my job as well.

pets

If there is one thing about a class a that I love, it is being able to take your pets with you without any stress on them. We have a cat and two birds. Peanut, the cat is a great traveler and adjusts well. When he sees the slides going in he knows we are going bye bye and usually stays between the two of us sleeping while we are going down the road. I put the bird cage between the couch and the dining room chair and they are snug and happy too. I could never do that in a truck. I think that having the pets with you and the accessibility of a bathroom and refrigerator and food are reasons for a class a. If you aren't going to be traveling and will be staying in one place for months at a time, then I can see having a fifth wheel, it is more like a house, but too much work for us.

I like the entire vibe, the good time on our way to going to have a good time. Friends and familmy can hang out and be comfortable while we travel. No basement seating like a class c, or no seperate vehicle like the TT and such. Although both have their own advantages I'm sure! But yeah, the good times!

Out of curiosity, is there more of a brotherhood amongst class a owners?
With class c, I really don't see it. However, I wonder if a owners are any different?
I know when camping those with class a's do seem to be more out going or willing to talk...for some reason.

I like spending lots of money in large sums frequently.

One could likewise save a lot of money by camping in a tent.

Some of it is the cool factor
It's the same feel as driving a full blown highway coach. The ride and handling is second to none. You sit up as high as all the highway trucks. Power to spare.................No doddling.
Oh and did I mention they're just plain COOL?
