Storage in Airstream / Argosy

Hi all.. While I've yet to go into an older AS/Argosy (but may tomorrow), I'm
wondering what you all think of the storage in your average vehicle? Our main trailer (2001 Nash fifth wheel) we decided after the fact has poor storage for some areas.. Do the motorhomes have sufficient storage places for things like tools and other items that might be needed for your average trip (firewood,kitchen supplies, food, etc)? Also, I gather not many have any ovens -- correct?

Anyway, I was just curious about your impressions for those of you that own one. Thx!

Never enough storage in MH.
No oven, but there is a convection as part of the microwave.
Food selection is important, and very important if your boondocking.

Your opinion is valued, please not your opinion of someones else's opinion.

Storage is a matter of perspective, I think. We "graduated" to the Airstream after tent-camping with the MG. It seemed spacious!

We actually think there's more than enough storage in our argosy moho as well as our airstream trailer. In both, we have yet to fill up all of the compartments, cubbies, and drawers. But, we take nothing more than what's required. Some sob friends have massive storage, and fill it all. I don't plan on rebuilding my engine or changing out a transmission on the road, so I don't take enough equipment to do so.

Of course my Airstream is 34 feet long, so storage everywhere. Really haven't hit the road yet, nor packed up the things I feel are 'must-haves'. I do have full-timer friends who are very concerened about their total weight in the 5'er. They are now to the point of "one thing in-one thing out" mantra.
I have a huge outdoor storage area underneath rear bed mattress. TONS of room, and thinking if I wanted, I could even take along a chiminea if I wanted to.
My only suggestion for when you hit the road, look at everything you're wanting to take, and decide if you will use it each and every day while camping.
Just my opinion. Thanks, Derek
