Did I choose wisely?

As you know, I consider my current 7'-9" by 20"-0" box size trailer (2005 Arctic Fox 22h) too big now that I have simplified a good bit.

Yes! How do birds do that?? Perch on thorns. Sounds like you may have had a relaxing day providing time for rumination. I vote artichoke. Of course, you didn't say where you took the photo. Maybe Walmart if it IS an artichoke.

I think since birds go barefoot all the time, they have calluses on their little feet and toes that even a cholla can't penetrate.

It's easy enough to go smaller, you just get a smaller trailer. But I would like to get rid of the hassles of dealing with a trailer, the parking problems, the backing up problems, the bearings and the tires, and just have one vehicle to worry about. My travels in the little Bronco have reinforced a couple of things that I already knew which is, it's great to have a small vehicle to travel in, but something the size of the little Bronco is waaay too small and uncomfortable to live in for very long.

Changing RV size is always an interesting discussion. We have a 32 ft. travel trailer and fortunately I can traverse backwards in a competent manner. It is a 2003 Arctic Fox 30U and is heavy but built very well. Last year I was considering a change but the price tags quickly caused me to appreciate what I have. Life is a compromise and at this point I am reluctant to down size because of the costs and loss of comfort. Their are two of us and sometimes the grand kids participate so that make a difference.

Thank you Larry that's a very interesting comment, and very interesting comments gives me an opportunity to bloviate endlessly about subjects I have little or no knowledge of. But in this case, since you asked a question about my hobby of photography the answer is extra special long.

I am being tempted by another van. The Embassy Traveler Duo built on a Ford Transit body. I really do miss being able to head out in the winter and this one looks to be designed for that with a water system that can be used even in the cold. https://www.embassyrv.com/models-traveler-duo-features

That is a beautiful Van Linda, I especially like that you can get it with 600 amps of lithium batteries. That's 200 amps more than I have, so you could boondock indefinitely as far as your electricity is concerned. I did find it interesting that they're using lithium ion batteries, instead of the more common for RVs, lithium iron batteries. I'll have to look a little deeper into that.

Yes, I'd go with the 600 amp since I had 400 amp in my last van and it was not always quite enough. The Ford chassis for maintenance appeals, too. But I'm not sure about that waterless flush toilet--the refills look more expensive than I'd like so I may just go with a bucket toilet lined with heavy duty garbage bags. If I do this at all, I'd sure like to do it but I'm still figuring out how to get it into our budget without my Dave having a heart attack.

I think the bucket is a good idea. My little Bronco slide-in camper has a regular RV toilet and I think it's a 7 gallon black water tank, and it's never been used. The bucket and bag is a whole lot easier to deal with than finding a place to dump your tanks. I can use either one and I chose the bucket and bag. Simple is always better.
