The Pros and Cons of different Bus Sizes?

Hello all,

I'm in the process of searching for a bus and have found myself consistently coming back to the same question. What size bus should I get?

Whether it be a 12 window, 9 window, or 6 window. Long, medium, or short. I love the look of a 6 window, they're so cute and compact. The long ones of course have plenty of room for a full build. The 9 windows seem to be a compromise, but will they fit my needs?

The list of essentials my bus has to have is as follows:

A full bed
A bathroom
A shower
Room for a kitchen with a fridge, stove, sink and counter space.
A fold down couch
A "booth" inspired seating arrangement.

My question is, do you think that would fit in a medium bus or should I cut my losses and go for the full size?

I'd love to see floorplans for each size if you want to attach some below as well!

What are your pros and cons of each size?

We've spent the last year and a half in a short bus. If you want all of those features, you don't want a short bus. We recently picked up a 32 foot tc2000 that we're building that will allow us to have those things.
