One thing I took for granted in the Airstream 25 was the storage space. Storage under the bed, under dinette benches, under the front sofa. Plus storage in the truck bed. Room for the broom, vacuum, nice tool box, that kind of stuff.

My 24 Lazy Daze C class to be delivered next week has about half the storage. Many other small C units have much more basement storage but are taller and more top heavy.

The less storage will be of no problem to me, but it does mean weeding out the never used, and rarely used items. I'm going through this stuff now. Lot is going to go, probably not at a big loss. The giant salad bowl, the colorful big globe lights, the bluboy dump tank. The margarita machine, the giant pot still shrink wrapped after 8 years. I may have to cut down on my lifetime supply of paper plates and plastic cups. Will the toaster come or go? Maybe I'll fill in the final tally when I finish the job.

A class B would hold far less than my small C. But as one actively downsizing, thought it would be relevant to the thread.

We bought our 25FB Flying Cloud with our grandkids in mind. They love it and even come down sometimes to spend the night in it parked in the driveway. We live very close to you and the opportunities for camping are close and easy to access. The grandkids will want to go. I'd keep what you have.

Hope is not a plan.

Actually, Winnebago makes the Era, a class B on a stock extended Sprinter chassis and body; the View, a class C with a Sprinter chassis and cab (two versions); and the Via, a class A on a Sprinter chassis. They've got the whole range of Sprinter-based RVs.
