We enjoy spending our time in National parks and dry camping and is why we have a 20 FC for that reason. There is usually more room between sites and are therefore much quieter, usually. We have a solar panel instead of a generator and has worked great for us since 2012. I volunteer in Yosemite NP in Aug and the 20 is the perfect size for this as well.

22 has lots of windows that open. Even in the bathroom.

Great for mild days with no AC.

If you are age 62 or older, you can purchase a Senior Pass for $10, which will allow a 50% discount on camping in most National Parks and other federal land. For more information, see link, below:

Note: Some National Parks have hookups; e.g., Gulpha Gorge NPS Campground, Hot Springs, AR. Full hookups = $30 per night; with Senior Pass = $15.

We started with a 16' so the tanks in the 22 seem big to us. We could go 3-4 days easily with the combined black grey tank on the 16'. Havent used the 22 enough without hookups to know how long they will last.
Looked at the 19's but I just didnt care for that rear corner bed.
We just love the 22, pretty open and roomy with decent sized bed (no more sleeping up against the wall for me). It tows just a nice as the 16'.

We have spent a week boondocking in the the Gunnison Nat'l Forest. Yes, we have a Honda genny to keep the battery charged. No, we didn't have any negative experiences. The 22' is perfect for us. Lots of room, easy to tow and manuver. After owning it for 8 years we don't feel anything else could suit us better.
