I'll just pick one item. I call it the "Million Dollar View". I have found that the best view of the world is out of the rear of the RV. Our Navion IQ has a similar floor plan as our RoadTrek did, a rear dinette with windows on three sides. Makes for a lousy bed, but we found ways to make it livable.

I'm still looking, but for me, it is a permanent bed with the only other alternative being a Murphy bed floorplan. I just like having the ability to drive to a CG/SP/RV park, park, draw the drapes, walk to the bed, then sleep for a while before I actually unpack. Similar with dry camping. At the minimum, a cabover, but sometimes those end up being cramped.

I'm also looking for what is the optimal size/balance between agility, but yet big enough not to be cramped when stuck at one place due to inclement weather.

I got my class c because I liked the van cockpit over the class a box. Purchased my brand because I wanted to buy from my local dealer

Started out with a small TT, found we wanted more space and no corner bed. switched to a larger TT and totaled it first time out. Decided no more TTs.

Looked at class As and Cs. Didn't like the way Class As in our price range drove and couldn't find a used C we liked. Finally found our present MH, new at a reasonable price, we wanted an island queen and no slides.

We have done a ton of mods and it has served us well for 8 years.

We bought the current one because of the floor plan and the engine (Ford V-10). Our RV has the side hall and full bathroom. We rented a rv in Alaska (E-350) and decided that the Class C was for us. We then bought a Four Winds on the Chevy chassis which seemed underpowered and the ride felt like it was floating. We saw the floor plan we have now and just liked it so we traded when we found a deal.

PRICE,the price was so low, that we could not pass it up. It has been a real nice unit for us. Its a great unit for 2 people. Has all the bells and whistels that we need. I have added some upgrades that we wanted. Really the PRICE was the deciding factor.

I have a 1979 Dodge Champion Grand Slam that was left to me by my late step-father. It's 24' long with a factory 440cid/727hd. I've had it about 12 years now. It has been interesting to drive and own. I cracked an exhaust manifold and set the doghouse on fire on my last trip with it 5 years ago. So far no manifold is available for it.

I chose our old Class C for the floor plan. Rear bedroom, center bath.
I also liked the 29 foot size.
The 460 Ford was neither a selling point nor a deal breaker. It was just adequate.

I traded it for the Class A Southwind for the V-10 engine, the size (32 foot), the living room slide out, the floor plan, and the towing capacity.
And, of course, the year. Next year I can put PERMANENT registration on it, and never have to renew it as long as I own it!
The relatively low miles was also a plus.
