I agree Leisure Travel rigs are great. Love the factory provided macerator, good storage space and solid well made units. I looked at the View, a good rig but chose a Leisure Van Libero, but the Unity has some great floor plans and has the Sprinter 3500 chassis. I like the dual single bed/king option on the Unity.

Also looked at an ERA, Pleasureway, & Roadtrek B's with the Sprinter chassis and all were very good, but we downsized from a 40ft DP and wanted something with a bit more room and larger tanks than available in the smaller units.

Good luck, there are sooo many options out there. Coach house in Fl have very nice units also.

Be sure you don't want a little bigger. It has happened to us and friends who thought they would be satisfied with the smaller coach. Lasted less than a year before the got a bigger coach. Think of what you will be using it for, how comfortable would it be on a rainy day when you are sitting inside all day. Can you have friends over comfortably? This was the reason our friends went bigger. Said they couldn't have anybody over to just visit without being cramped. However, the smaller coaches are nice because you can get by without having a toad. Just giving you food for thought.

Yes, rent a motorhome and take it out somewhere for a week or two.

As the old saying goes, there's no substitute for experience.

What's just fine for me maybe waaaaay too small for someone else. The DW & I (and Deputy Dog) have no problem with 2 to 4 weeks in our 24' class C, on the other hand I have a good friend who's a bachelor. He is trading his 30' class A in on a 34'er this summer because his 30'er is way too small to him.

To each their own.
