Wheelbase is important. All things being equal, a longer wheelbase will handle better in crosswinds and wander less(esp. if you are towing something). We started with a 32' Winnebago Adventurer, it wandered a LOT with the Toad on back... the tail wagging the dog. We graduated to a 35' Adventurer(adding 20" of wheelbase) and the improvement was like night and day. Now we have a 40' DP(adding another 40" of wheelbase and a lot more weight), and it tracks perfectly with the Toad. The tail overhang is not as long, and with the increased wheel cut(56) is more maneuverable than the 35' gasser.

And CCC is important, some M/H have less than 1000#, while others can be rated over 4000#. We're snowbirds, and I didn't thank we hauled a lot of stuff, but when we put the M/H on the scales it was over 1500# of stuff. In some M/H we would be overloaded. IMHO.
