My 2 cents worth. We have a new (2007) Winnie 26P Class A that we are extremely happy with. For 2 people (with an occasional third) we have plenty of room, 2 slideouts, a door to close between us when we need to, 2 TVs, and a motorhome small enough to be able to go into any state or federal park.
With the 8.1 liter Vortec engine and Workhorse chassis it has enough power to go over any hill, and even tow our Jeep Wrangler.
We have done several small trips since we have bought it (about 2 months ago) and are about to go on a 8K mile, 19 state trip. We will give a report on how it goes as we travel along.
Yes, big is good when you need it, but sometimes small is good too.
