My favorite was Our 76 19' Jamboree. We sold it with 108,000mi. It would go anywhere we wanted to go round trip. Unlike the last two GM based class A's.

there's no law that says you can only one..... pick up a second one..... I'm ok with the design of my Class C, but would have done it differently if given the choice.... The dinette/bed would have been replaced with loveseat sized sofa bed, and a removable table that could be mounted in front of it.... also without the dinette in the way, reclining/swivel front bucket seats in the front, to allow more seating, also saw one small class A (can't remember which model) that used the entire bathroom floor (with drain in the middle) as the shower stall, freeing up the space that the tiny tub takes up (good for small kids, but definitely not design with full sized adults in mind )

the Yellowstone Cavalier that I have, was most likely designed for vacationing, not ever intended for full time use, not that it's not capable of being use that way, just not especially comfortable (especially for more than one person or even small family)

I will be keeping an eye out for at least a similar or slightly larger Class A at some time in the near future.

your right about the size, as most full sized vans are 18' - 21'

I can relate... wish my dad had been into to or another relative, wish I had gotten interested in it when I was a teenager... no telling what kind of model I'ld have now, or where in the country I'ld call home... (even temporarily)

Mine was over 20 years old when I got it

I have a 27 ft class C. It is fine for week long trips, drives like a dream, but for long stays of like 3 months--- much too small. Two people, it would insanity. Does not have over the cab bunk.

mine has the over cab bunk, along with the dinette that folds down to another bed... both of those were more comfortable than the mattress in the bedroom (which I've already priced a piece of foam to cover it - $40 or a replacement mattress -$350)

My dinette folds down into a bunk. I have not tried it yet, would not be a simple conversion. The rear bed is very comfortable, but is corner type bed. No outside walkaround. Make up of the bed is a bear so I use the Travasak which does make it easier.

Winnebago 30' with one slide. Nice size bed in the back with room to get around on both sides. Table makes a bed, as does the couch plus the over cab. I would rather the over cab be cabinets. This is plenty big for the two of us but also allows for short trips with another couple or the grandkids.

turn the over head into storage space, thinking about doing the same with ours. Our Class C has the bed over cab, I'm thinking about using the board (bed frame) that slides out, as a base to build a cabinet on, leaving access for the small windows on the side for ventilation and light, but enclosing the center section w/ 2 large doors for access.

Going from a 36' DP Alpine Coach to a 24' Phoenix Cruiser.
We'll see how it works out on a 7-week trip starting this Saturday.

Boy, do I like a good experiment.

The storage issues will most likely be the biggest changes, if you don't tow a vehicle behind it, get a large hitch haul and a big mack on top if possible. free up all the spaee inside that you cann.

good luck
