I very much agree with your views here. I recently acquired a 25RT. In life many choices tend to come down to trade offs. For me the 25 RT offered a few high priorities:
1. Twin Beds
2. Increased viewing areas both from (dinette) and rear (twin beds).
3. Very good interior storage.
Now that I have had a chance to experience the 25RT on a few trips I'm not disappointed in the view. The twin beds offer actually more sleeping space and better access. The storage is quite incredible and we have room to spare.
What was the trade off? Here's some things that actually support the 25FB:
1. Seating in the 25RQ/RT dinette is less than perfect. It offers little support. When you stretch out your head hits the sloping window or window frames. We often just seek incredible comfort by going to the rear bedroom area. No extended sitting at the dinette. The FB has a sofa. That would be nice.
2. The bathroom is incredibly small and difficult to maneuver in. We've set up a make shift expansion into the hallway with a quick set up shower curtain. Fortunately it is not an area that most of us spend a lot of time in.
The 25RT provides even more advantages for us (and a few more disadvantages) but the top two priorities mentioned above won out for us. No regrets. The views really add to the outdoor experience so often associated with the RV/camping experience. Compared to previous RV's, the increased storage reduced frustration and increased organization. The outdoor storage is really pleasant as well, particularly due to the front storage pod.
The overall construction of a Bigfoot
truly is very solid comparatively speaking and depending on your priorities either one would be worth serious consideration.
