Hi: honda 03842... Sorry about your loss!!!
We are fast catching up to you, and anything that brings us closer to each other is a bonus IMHO. Those extra 4-6" 's in width would be nice but then I'd have to add extra mirrors on the truck.
What I do like about the 5.0 is the headroom. It goes along way toward dispelling the clause tro phobia. It doesn't feel like the roof is caving in on me...not that I'm tall, dark, or handsome!!! I don't have to worry about rubbing any more hair off the cranium either.
My wife thinks I need glasses...as I don't see things the way she does OTOH.
Different strokes for different folks though.

Norm and Ginny, I too must share my condolences.

You make a point that, in what I have gathered, is very relevant to the O.P..

Steve, concessions now will put you on the road sooner. Yes, there will be things that may bother you or that you may need to change. There is no perfect camper. As you know, there are times when things are perfect for the moment but no thing is perfect forever. Time is what we cannot change so small concessions should be afforded to spend time the way we wish to.

We wasted a year looking for the Swiss army knife of campers. Our joke now is we want the Harry Potter tent. It's 12 sq ft on the outside but 2500sq ft on the inside and weighs less than a pound.

My advice is pick one you can live with and enjoy.

Happy hunting!
