You could probably ask the same question about truck campers. My answer would be what you want it to do for you would determine what size you would want (or need). We travel with a TC. It's a place to sleep and a place to cook & eat if the weather isn't fit for doing same outside. For snowbirding we have something larger. To me the smallest thing that meets your needs is the way to go. Different people have different needs so different sizes.

I have a question for you camper van owners. Isn't the interior of camper vans difficult to move around? I mean, I've never owned one but I've been inside a few of them and in my idea it has a lack of room. On a scale of 1 through 10, how would you rate the comfort of the interior? I would rate it a 4!
Hmmm... I think for most of us here, it's more about the comfort of the exterior, which is sooo much easier to move around in... easier to drive on narrow roads and streets, easier to park in a CG or at the curb, etc, etc. Compared to my Subie, about an 8.
Compared to a house, I'd rate the interior comfort about a 6 or 7. But who the heck in their right mind wants to drive a dam' house around, or haul all that empty air space around? Not I.

Winnebago Fan, What i wanted in an RV was was to go from point "A" to point "B", single twin beds ,or full size, or queen, or king size, and a refrigerator, a microwave oven, sink,one or two tables,color tv,dvd player, range,stool,lavatory,shower,closet,lots of cabinets,dash air,roof air, 12volt and 110 volt power, furnace, comfortable captain chairs,double or triple gas mileage,drive anywhere,easier to clean up. (NO I DO NOT HAVE A WASHER AND DRYER, DO NOT NEED IT) Yes it is small, but that is what i wanted because i tried the monstrous class "A" motor homes--been there,and would never go back. Bob

Probably the single most telling fact is that I have never seen a B pulling a toad. Our MH is our toad. When you want to leave the CG to tour or go to the liquor store or something else important there is a minor unhooking and just go! (We have quit carrying the Vespa, it lives in Florida now)
