Yes. They are 19 feet long and 7 1/2 feet wide. For perspective, that is only 2 1/2 feet longer than a Chevy Tahoe.

The inside is more than likely quite comfortable.

Last week, I was set up a bit down the path from one just like that... I'd never seen one that little.

I spoke with the folks renting it and the guy said he had to step outside, just to change his mind... (lol) He told me his wife and he'd rented it to check out what "this RVing thing's all about".

Later that afternoon, they both came over and visited with us, in our 31' Class C. The wife confided that she was just about ready to throw in the towel on the whole motorhome thing, but after seeing the size of ours (with it's single slide-out), decided she'd reconsider.

Now, there's nothing wrong with a small coach, but a couple of folks, squeezed into such a small space, for a week, I imagine it'd get a wee bit claustrophobic for most people.

That's a bad way to start off. Go big or go home!

I met a couple who were both professional chefs, they worked the summers in the Mediterranean and the winters in the Caribbean. They lived (and commuted between the two) in a 32' sailboat, and had for 5 years. I think if you discount the bits of a boat that aren't habitable and the front & back that are narrower, it's probably not much more space than that rig.

They had to be in love to make that work!!

You nailed that one on the head... but, it's tough to just to step out for a little walk, when you're 3,000 miles from the closest land. (lol)

There is really no set definition. Our Aspect is considered a "C", but a B+ Cruiser is not. Same basic configuration, both have no "rugrat room" cab overhang.
The definition is in the eye of the beholder, I guess.
First photo is our Aspect.
Second photo is a B+ Cruiser.

We stayed next to a couple that were into their 9 month of camping (not sure it was full-timing), their way around the US. They were driving a Volkswagen Camper with 2 kids with them being home schooled. The kids stayed in a tent unless the weather was really bad.

They seemed to have a routine down and were thoroughly enjoying themselves. It was quite a delight to see.
