I should add if you are going to host, you will be living on the road and will require plenty of storage…insure the unit you buy is going to be ample for you…
A diesel pusher doesn't feel as close to camping as a 5th wheel in my humble opinion…there are places you can get a 5th wheel that one cannot get a motorhome as well…

But wanted more like home feel sent I will be retiring and be in it for a longer time.
They make a lot of different makes now so it would be hard to say,except We woulded look at any of they now less 36ft and it would have to be a 5th wheel

Just saw a TV show review Excel RV's (made in Kansas) and they said that unlike most other RV mfgt's their Toy Haulers do not use the typical Checker board floors/Black vinyl/Chrome or diamond plate interiors...

So if you are looking for more of a normal house décor vs. the look of at "racing shop," try: Excel RVs: The Nations Top-Rated Luxury 5th Wheel - Excel RVs

I had the same feeling when shopping for my Class A Toy hauler. But, most of the ones I found looked like the start/finish line at a race track. Luckily the Outlaw came with several different interiors.

Best luck
