For us this unit is perfect, big enough for a month stay, small enough the DW is perfectly happy heading out on her own, well, with Deputy Dog riding shotgun too.
It's interesting that you mentioned this. Last weekend I helped a new neighbor move in and he had rented a small E350 cube van. I followed him on the way out and the truck had no trouble with the most problematic stretch of the road. The truck was only 20-22' so it's possible a 25-28 footer would have more trouble but it looked doable with careful driving.

I never really understood why people buy those extra long 31"+ Class C motorhomes; why not just buy a class a and be done with it?
Just my opinion, everyone has their reasons I suppose.
I wonder what percentage of RV sales are to new RVers? Jumping straight into a Class A might be too expensive/intimidating for a first time buyer.

Handles well. We pull a toad.
Are you full timing? Next Spring we have a big business trip planned that can be combined with a road trip. We're thinking that'd be the perfect time to discover how well a rental 25' C works for 3-4 weeks. It'll be interesting to see if we can get away with a smaller mh or if we'll find ourselves regretting going small.

Bear in mind though, with an RV they talk about bumper to bumper length (even including the rear stinky slinky tube bumper), with a cube van the length they talk about is the box only.

I'd have to guess an Econoline cab to be 6' or 7' minimum in length, so an 16' cube van would be a 22' to 24' RV.
