I like both. Being outdoors as much as possible.

What is the draw for these huge RV's ? Unless you have a raft of kiddos, I just don't get it. I've seen more huge Provos' Class A's that the folks never leave their rig. Stay for a week and you may see them outside once or twice... what's the point? May as well put a picture of exotic places in your windows at home and be really comfortable. JMHO>

It's whatever the owner wants and I for one am glad we have so many options. So you asked why and those are just a few reasons. I am sure that there is others.
Totally agree.
I'm 6'4 and I'm not spending money to be cramped in a small trailer. And I keep the rig packed and ready to roll without loading gear in the truck bed or inside the trailer.

Sometimes there are 6 people hanging out in the trailer.
When it rains all weekend where do you go?
The other people we go camping with have the same attitude about trailer size as Waggs...they have a tiny hybrid and the others have a tent. Well guess where everyone is most of the time? Under the BIG awning, cooking in the BIG trailer, keeping their food in the BIG fridge, having me bring thier supplies in my BIG storage. They were all pretty ticked off too when I traded my BIG bunkhouse for a rear living room because now they couldn't sleep in my BIG beds.
And they sure love getting the kids settled watching a movie in front of my BIG tv.

New RV for the wife =
New Tow Vehicle for the man.

Is there a Ram 4500? If not then Ford has one.

We camp with a group of 10-12 friends on a monthly basis. We hardly ever go in each others rigs but do have social hour every day under an awning.

As far as sleeping over? Whaaat! Our rig only sleeps 2.

Some great points presented here. I agree it is great to have so many great choices. So many styles of enjoying the great outdoors. No one rig fits all needs.

I hope he took a big jar of Vaseline with him. I would've told my wife that she should've thought about getting bigger one when we got the last one. Never understand how some women get their way so much. I've seen quite a few wives take the family into near bankruptcy because they can't be happy with what they have and think they'll be happier with the next best thing.
I hope they're both really, really, happy, because they'll be paying on the big cost difference plus the higher price for the new Montana for the next 11-14 years.
