Welcome to the forum!
We downsized from a 33' Class A to our Vegas, which is about 26'. We haven't missed the things we threw out. We weren't ready to trim down enough to fit our stuff into a Synergy, but it is appealing for the reasons you listed.
Said before, RVs are a bit like shoes, different types for different folks, and our preferences change over time.
There are friends, there are family, and then there are friends that become family!
