Avenue likes,dislikes, suggestions?

We are mulling over making the switch to a B Van and have our eye on a very low-mileage (2800 miles) 2011 Avenue. They want too much money for it, of course, but otherwise, any experiences out there worth mentioning as we continue our consideration? I understand the space (or lack of it) issue -we've owned a VW Westphalia and Eurovan camper). Other stuff: Gas mileage with that Chevy V8, 12V/110 frig, height under AC, plumbing, 3-captain chair version vs. the "suite" or the 4 captain chair model, Onan generator (already read about the noise and the need for a baffler), finish work, mechanical, awning, etc. Thanks in advance for any words of encouragement or discouragement. Feel free. We also know that AS discontinued the Avenues last year (apparently didn't want a duel in the sun with seriously overpriced Roadtreks). Jeff

Having owned an Interstate, I would prefer the Avenue because of the smaller size and gas engine. Small is small and a little smaller in my opinion makes little difference. Jim
