We had a 33ft 5th for 12 years it was huge at the beginning but we ended full timing in it. We were OK but when we bought the new one we needed larger with larger everything.
Our choice was this 39' Big Country by Heartland RV. Their lowest trimmed FT unit. The price was right and the options were just right for living in it FT.
The axles were the best at 7k each. The windows were DP. The unit is very comfortable down to our northern temperature in November. Plus I was able to make modifications to it to make it a real home. We tow it with our existing F250, and much easier then the previous unit. The basement storage with the lowered front frame is huge and fully occupied.
We store everything we use for hobbies we have and they are different. I have 3 kayaks, 3 guitars and amp with sound equipment, desktop PC and portables as I also build and repair computers. Wife is also in sewing and painting and other interesting stuff that may come along. Also carry a lot of repair tools as we volunteer a lot on projects while wintering in the south.
BC unit was the only model I would tow with my truck while equipped with W/D. Units with the washer in the closet puts to much weight on the pin for a SRW truck.

Barbara and Laurent, Hartland Big Country 3500RL. 39 ft long and 15500 GVW.
2005 Ford F250 SD, XL F250 4x4, Long Box, 6.0L Diesel, 6 Speed Stick, Hypertech Max Energy for Fuel mileage of 21 MPusG empty, 12.6 MPusG pulling the BC. ScangaugeII for display..
