i guess it is all relative as we, too, wanted a TAB and in fact had one for a couple days before swapping it for the 16' Bambi. At only a foot longer than the TAB, everything about the AS is huge. That said, I can see that a 25' twin would be the ultimate for us in a few years when we retire and spend more than a few days at a time camping.

We looked at everything from 16 to 25.
TV was not an issue.

In the end we got a 22.

Can't tell you how much we like it.

I resisted at first, because I really like the dinette in the front pano windows, and the 22 does not have that.

But it has The largest bed (80" long), bathroom with a window that opens and room to stand at the sink, a long spanse of kitchen counter for a very workable kitchen, and comfy dinette.

The info that helped us decide was realizing via the Colonial AS long video that the table could be rotated 90 degrees when sitting so that the short end is under the window.

And the narrower width makes towing much easier as far as visibility and parking.

Couple all of that with the great (for an AS) price point and we feel we got a great unit we can use for the 2 of us and the dog, and bring along a grown kid if they wanted to come as well.

We just went from a '63 Globetrotter to a 16' Sport. For us (2+2 nearly grown daughters) it's just right. How much personal space do you and your family need? Everyone will answer that question differently. Some will see the 16' as way too small - others as just right. We're the latter.

Good luck with your decision.

We got our 22FB about 6 months ago and are already pushing 5k miles in trips! There's 4 of us, but two are kids and one kid is only two and a half so they sleep opposite each other and it works just fine.

Congrats on the 22!! I'm sure you'll have a blast with it!
