Comparing to Winnie View, the PW is much nicer. Space and storage are my main concerns.
We looked at one of these; they are far better quality than the Winnie View. We also had the same storage concern. We prefer the Leisure Travel Vans Unity TB. Although a bit longer, there is a lot of cargo space. I also did not like the boxy look of the Plateau; the Unity is more streamlined in appearance. Give it a look.
On the downside, unless you get lucky and a dealer has just what you want, there is about a 6 month wait for orders. These are very popular MHs. In fact, LTV has quit making class Bs so they can keep up with demand for the Unity. They are still hand built, not mass produced, which explains the premium prices. We did find a few used units with low miles. Dealers are scarce, though we are blessed to have a Pleasure-Way/Leisure Travel dealer near where my son lives in the Portland, OR area. They had a 2016 PW XLTD as well as a couple of new Unity models (just not the twin bed floor plan we are looking for). One 2014 UnityTB, but the 2016 and 17 models have some feature improvements I am willing to wait (and pay) for.
I was especially impressed with Pleasure-Way's cabinetry - very nice. We were also looking at Class B vans (which Leisure Travel no longer makes). If we were to choose a B Van, it would definitely be a PW - very nice finish. Leisure Travel Vans (probably one of the best made in the price range), on the other hand, has brought some very innovative ideas to RV design. They appear to be willing to go "outside the box" to create floor plans that optimize the smaller size of the relatively new B+ MHs. In my mind, this is an indication that they care about their customers, as well as their bottom line
At the moment, I feel we have found the perfect (as near as you can get anyway) MH for us in the LTV UnityTB. I am not willing to give up cargo space, a separate sleeping area with real beds, and a dry bath for a Class B MH that is a bit more maneuverable and gets a few more MPG. As you probably realize, if you've been comparing, there is little price difference between comparable B and B+ units. Bs can even be a bit more.
I believe these two makes (PW and LTV) offer some of the best value in the RV market. Resale value is unmatched which, in my opinion, is important, should your needs change or you decide the choice you made is just not right for you.
Good luck in your search. I feel your pain. If you have questions, I would gladly share some of my observations and the results of my research.
