My pre-Tiger RV was 17.5 feet bumper to bumper, a custom C built on a 1983 Toyota 4x4 chassis. My Tiger CX is 19.5 feet bumper to bumper, built on a Chevy 2500 HD 4x4 chassis. Such a great size for a one-person RV!!!

My Damon Escaper was built on a 1988 Toyota one ton chassis. It was just under 20' long. It worked very well for us but we actually like being married to one another. The 120 hp was a definite drawback but we made it up every grade, including Beartooth, Going to the Sun Road, and up the west side of 14A in the Bighorns.

Our 2007 Phoenix Cruiser HERE measures 23'-8" end-to-end. Back in 2007, it was the smallest rig we could find with a main floor double bed, a standard dinette, a dry bath, and all decent useful house/living features. It also clears our 10' tall garage door by 2".

Our rig is ideal for my wife and I. We had our son travel with us a couple times. He slept on the dinette conversion which works, but is naturally disruptive. Our rig is offered with a couch/bed SEEN HERE in a slide-out to sleep a total of 4 people, but I imagine that would be even more disruptive.

Our rig does NOT fit into a typical automobile parking spot unless we back in and let the rear overhang grass.

Those 19G Majestic type rigs are most nimble. I have seen them and envy their car-size. But everything has it's trade-offs. You have to determine your own priorities.

Phoenix Cruiser 2100. 22' bumper to bumper with full time dinette and a foldable, walk around bed even when open.


Our Phoenix Cruiser 2100, "Bob", has turned us from campers into RVers and loving it!

Oh yes, absolutely.

A 2008 or newer without the ladder, model 2100 is only 21'-7" long.
A 2007 or older without the ladder, model 2100 is only 21'-2" long.
The 5" difference is in the style of the Ford chassis between 2007 and 2008.
Ford added the 5" forward.

Here is the floor plan of model 2100 (21'-7" long)

Here is the floor plan of model 2350 (23'-11" long)

These are 19ft long, in this case built on the Toyota Hilux " 0ne Tonne Chassis" for North Americans ALL midsize Pickups outside the US or Canada are built on similar chassis, so payloads can go from 2,200lbs to 3,000lbs in some cases
