Well, I guess my membership in the national Rv owners club will need to be revoked, as I recently downsized to a new itasca navion 24m. DW and I had been debating this for a few months, pros and cons with both types. Big factor is that I can keep navion at home behind fence, saves an hour round trip when I wanted to go get sea breeze to work on, wash, or get ready for trip. The 24m seems to have plenty of floor space with nearly full wall slide, and sure does drive nice.
Wanted to say thanks to all on this forum, I have learned a lot and enjoyed my time fixing up the old coach, but for our use and needs for the next 10 years the smaller unit will be better suited. Being able to keep at house increases sleeping capacity when kids/grand kids visit, another bonus.
