I'm totally behind the cruising at 80 "vibe".............and when you are on the highway it doesn't matter if your "bus" is 40 feet or 60.........
However, in my opinion, there's something to be said for ground clearance. There's something to be said for gliding through city centers and down town shopping malls and be able to do so with a deft maneuverable machine. That's where short comes in. Also there are going to be times when you move into more remote areas, funky mountain roads that feed to isolated and more remote areas near lakes and streams and National and State Parks.............
If the aim is RV parks and Resorts then Highway Coaches are probably tough to beat. But when it comes to getting off the beaten track, generally speaking you'd be asking for trouble..........
There are many times when I'm traveling and I see a road that feeds off into a rural setting, to a lake, a park, a Damn................and smaller roads that feed from them. The larger my bus is the less likely I am to explore. Simply because I risk there not being enough room for a "turnaround". I'm not selling anything here not even an Idea. But part of the freedom associated with an RV is being able to not be limited too much by where you can or cannot go: Like most things we can't have it all. It is up to each of us to Know where our heart is in this.
Also I'm not traveling with family, House systems are nice to have but I can pee in a pot, or get a hotel for a shower etc............with the cost of fuel what's the big deal............So many ways to do this thing and keeping it simple has advantages. And often. Less is More.
