There have been plenty of folks on the forum who found their Vegas or Axis wasn't quite big enough. Then again there were and are many who found the right fit in their smaller rig.
I've said here that RV's are like shoes, the style you prefer may be much different than the next person. And that preference may change over time. Double the payment, and probably double the depreciation? That might not matter to some, if it brings you more enjoyment and it fits the budget, maybe the dollarsdon'tmatter.
My analytical side suggests you calculate rhe total cost of your current rig per night, based on expected miles and nights, then do the same for possible alternatives. Your ultimate choice will likely be apparent.
We traded a 33 foot Class A for a Vegas 25.2 and enjoyed it for 6 years. Not too big, not too small. We just traded it away for a 29 foot Hurricane and time will tell if that wa a good move. Will the big slide and the power steps cause problems like we had with our earlier Class A?
