Hi to all

My wife and I downsized from the large 5th wheel life. No more 1 ton ram diesel and 39' 5th wheel. We are now happy (for now) owners of a 2017 ACE 29.4. So we have a large learning curve to over come.

Welcome to the world of smaller A class motorhomes. Let us know how the transition is working out.

Welcome! We also just transitioned over from a 39' fiver (Montana) to our first MH. What my DW noticed the most was we ended up with a little less cabinet space inside. What I noticed was that instead of about 60 square feet of storage under outside, we now have well over 200 square feet. And of course going down the road with a V-10 gas engine under you instead of a big diesel will be very different also.

We are sure happy with the switch though, and I am sure you folks will be too.
