Hopefully the smaller size will not be a problem but one thing for sure driving the Villagio home it was a lot easier and less stressful to drive. We will post the outcome when we return home.

Well we made it back from our maiden voyage and it went very well. What a difference in the driving and handling of the Renegade Villagio. We got 16 MPG so with the price of diesel being more I figured we spent half the amount from the Fleetwood. As for the space difference after we spent the first night and had a system worked out it went very well. When in Asheville our GPS took us downtown to a place to eat supper and it went without stress. If ever in Asheville you got to see Biltmore Estate. The smaller coach makes the trip shorter on the road as you can run at a higher speed without feeling uncomfortable. So far NO regrets at downsizing. If there is one thing we did miss was a toad but we are looking into a Mini Cooper. Talked to a gentleman down south who has a Winnebago View and has a Scion as a toad and only loses 1 MPG so that was encouraging. No more trips till spring!!! Come on spring

Woody,
I am reading your posts with great interest . My wife and I bought a winnebago 27 for class a and we had it very custom made. Problem is, it is still too big for us. We will be watching your notes . Thanks
John

We got rid of our 34' Class A last spring and bought a 22' RoadTrek. We drove it to Florida last fall, camping and visiting friends along the way. In Florida until spring, it is our only transportation. We take it shopping where the refrigerator comes in handy when we have other errands to run. It's a bit long for some parking spaces but so far we've managed to find pull-thrus or parking at the back of the lots for parallel parking.

We'll drive it home in spring and spend three weeks this summer traveling the upper mid-west with our granddaughter. When we buy a car or pickup for everyday use depends on how well it goes with just the RT. Right now we're enjoying the freedom of the smaller RV.

BTW, it did take an adjustment in the way we thought of touring. Instead of driving the Class A to a campground, unhooking the car, and traveling out from that central location, we now travel, sightsee, and travel on to the next spot down the road.
