Great point. Comfortable size depends a lot on previous experience. We traveled the country for 35 years with VW Camper vans (and still believe it's a good concept) so when we got our 20' Airstream we were amazed at the space.
Trouble is we decided to spend a lot more time traveling, six months a year so got a 25' Airstream, smallest of the large Airstreams but with all the features. This thing is huge by our experience.
Talk to someone who has a big motorhome and they will tell you they could never get by with our little 25', not even close. They're cramped in a 30' Airstream, often stuffed to the gills with stuff.
This point is made regularly in this forum, and followed with a similar argument about tow vehicles.
