Here in the Oregon Coast RV park where I live full-time, in the front section where the short-term folks camp, I spotted a 13' Lil Bigfoot
a few days ago. Their rig was sporting B.C. license
plates, which drew my attention, too (I was born in Ontario). I hadn't seen a 13-footer for a long while, so of course had to stop to chat.
When I told them I was living full-time in a 17-footer, they had to come see my baby. They were so amazed at how much room I had! This wouldn't work for some, but for me & my 2 kitties, it's been perfect.
So, yes, I agree it's a matter of perspective.
