Name one thing you like most about owning a class A

I see a lot of posts where people are considering moving to a class A motor home. They are trying to get information about driving or air brakes or sizes etc. I thought a post where some of us talk about what we like most about our Class A Motor Homes might be a nice place for people to get ideas.

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.

Do I have to pick just one . I agree the view is in the top 5.
Level floor throughout.
Power levelers.( Overall set up time )
Ease of parking in a back in RV site. This could just be me because over 9 years and 4 , 5th wheels I never got really good at backing up a 5er. At least that's what the DW says. ( I never hit anything)
Interior room and basement storage , Important if your DW likes to have stuff " Just in case " like mine does.
And the view.
I know you said one , but that was just too much pressure, to choose.

BTW: I have an electric pressure cooker for sale , brand new ; only 12,000 miles on it.

Looked at fifth wheels before we bought the Class A, but never drove or lived in one. What I like about my class A is that everything is in one place. Small toad, for nipping here and there, but when we are moving from place to place, we can stop and eat, sleep, watch tv, whatever, and then drive on. If where we stop seems a little dodgy, we leave the toad connected and the jacks up, and we can move on without going outside. Don't get wet setting up, wait till it's fine. I love the setup of some fifth wheels, they look beautiful, but I love my Mirada.

When heading south in cold weather, the rig is warm already when you pull into rest stop to eat or nap. No need to leave and go back to unheated trailer and hope you can get to fridge etc. bathroom is close and warm also. So many likes, hard to stop but many mentioned already!!

I can just turn the key off when I get to my destination. With my 5er toy hauler, I had to unload, just to have a place to sit down.

As someone has already mentioned I love the view and the height at which I sit to see out.

We just sold our 2008 Class C 32' and purchased a New 2013 Class A 36'. We put a lot of miles 70,366 on our C and we loved it. We have only owned our class A for 2 months now but already have 4,208 miles. Just like the other posts it is hard to pick just 1 thing but what is on top of my long list of likes: (1) Ease - Comfort of driving our Class A

All of the above plus my air horn. It's a real wake up for folks who come on from a ramp and don't have enough smarts to get their speed up to match the rest of the traffic flow.

A toilet is only a few short feet away, and it is available wherever I am. I don't need to get wet, hot, or cold to use it. You know when you gotta go.....

I like my A because it is not a TT, 5er, or C. They don't call them Class A's for nothing
