He needs a diesel coach to meet the 10k towing requirement. No gas chassis has that much capability.

On a more reasonable budget, the Winnebago and Itasca 32 footers of several years back would suit the need nicely. The Journey & Meridian 32T was 32'8" and had a 10,000 lb hitch receiver.

Most everything labeled as a 34 footer will be 34 and change overall, so too big for LVRVLUVR's stated needs.

Country Coach has a 32 footer back around 2000; that might be another option. A little bit classider than the Journey.

The Nexus 34 Bentley is near the top of my list!
Too bad it's like pulling teeth to see or buy one.
I trying to see one during spring break in So Cal. Looks like you can ONLY buy one in Indiana and then have it built.

Several Thor Palazzo Diesel Pushers are 34' or under, with 10k towing,
300hp Cummins
My 33.3 works very well(bunk house)

One of the guys in the video state that the coach is under 36 feet in length. So I might think it's not 34 feet or less.

Country Coach made a 32' coach. Actual measurement is 31" 11". If you can find one, you can get the ISL motor and have a hot rod.

No bad handling if the tire pressure is correct, ride height correct, alignment correct. All these parameters should be correct with any coach so no big deal.

The '02 model year is the one I am familiar with

We had similar requirements, wanting something that was ~33 and could tow 10K for horses, and went with a 2013 Excursion 33A. It's been great.

It's been great for us, although we're second guessing our initial interest in keeping the coach smaller (it was our first and we were nervous about being too long with a trailer). Thinking about going 40' now.
