We looked at the View/Navion before we bought our signature RV, but just couldn't live with the lack of floor space or the skinny storage provisions. We're not sure we coud full time in our 32-footer, but it might be feasible. It's not in our current plans.

If you could tow a 15' utility box trailer behind a View, full-timing might be OK for a single person!

I'll start with the caveat that I have not gone fulltime...yet. But my folks did for about fifteen years and then "most timed" for several more. They had everything at one time or another. TT, 5'er, Class C, Class A, and finally a Class B. When they went to the B it was not as full time but they would still stay out for many months at a time. I think it's a matter of what you need to have with you vs. what you want.

That being said, we are going to set out in a month on our first experiment at an extended trip. From WA hoping to be in FL by mid December. We decided on our 31 ft Allegro because it seemed to be a good size for us. We were originally looking at the View. I really liked it and think we could have been OK but the DW wanted a bit more room. The older I get the more I want small, simple, uncluttered, and uncomplicated....but that's just me.

DW a border collie and I lived 2 to 3 weekes at a time in a truck with an 8 foot sleeper and thought we were in heaven with all that room. Considering what we had in the past. The amount of room needed is more a state of mind than the actual reality of what is really needed, but more is better.

Not full timer but have a B+ (Jayco Melbourne 29D with three slides). Resently did a three week trip. Just the wife and I. Had a ball. Lots of living space and storage to spare.
I would check into a B+. (Concord, Forest River, Jayco) All are about the same in design.
