Explore the forums for opinions on size.

I did extensively, and ultimately decided on a used '27 Safari rear twin. With the whole family in tow, we convert the front gaucho to a queen with an air bed and let the kids (15 girl & 18 boy) share the rear. Otherwise it is the front queen with an early morning/late night rear lounge for the restless.

Only drawback to length is parking that sucker, otherwise on the road with the appropriate rig, not much of a difference. State and National facilities, as well as some private campgrounds, do often have length restrictions though. It is all part of the fun of researching the correct unit.

Any "extra" space comes in handy. Sometimes the longer units represent a better value per square foot. Just make sure they are structurally sound.

Enjoy the experience and hit the road!

Thanks for all the time you guys have given and the tips you've supplied.
Between the 22' International we had and the 30' Classic we now have, I haven't noticed any appreciable difference in mileage costs other than the diesel seems to work less when on the road. Besides the obvious of having more space for us and the dawg, the 30' allows us to have more folks over inside when the weather is not so good (winter or summer). Sometimes, playing some accoustic stuff outside bothers folks late a night or the 'skeeters begin to feast... indoors is a whole other venue and makes for nice conversation... with the 22' International, more than 4 adults indoors was very crowded.
