19 vs 22

As someone who just did a very close side-by-side comparison, the differences we felt were most noticable: significantly bigger bathroom - which for many is a big reason you get your own "rolling suite"; and relatively little penalty in weight and manueverabiity. For us the 22 was in the "small but feels roomy" category.

Granted there was a little apples and oranges comparison going on, since the 19 we inspected was the higher end Safari series, and the single axle 22 we bought is part of the Safari Sport series. But you give up relatively little in features.

Thanks. I guess the AS makes better sense than a Roadtrek Class B, right?

It doesn't cost as much to insure, and there is one less drivetrain to keep up with. The worst thing is for a mechanical device to sit and not be used, like a motor home. In 2-3 years when you are ready to trade tow vehicles, you can get bigger/smaller/bigger engine/manual transmission/red/blue/white, etc, and if you aren't happy with it, you can trade it in. If you should not like the Roadtrek, you're pretty much stuck with it for the duration. Another thing to think about right now, is in ten years you will still have your trailer, but we may all be driving fuel cell or solar vehicles because of gas prices and availability. If you have a motorhome, it ain't going anywhere, but you might still be able to tow the trailer.
