Why Did Less Junk More Journey Downsize to a 24FT RV?

The Moss Family has traveled in various RVs during their adventures. They’ve lived on the road in travel trailers, fifth wheels, and motorhomes. So downsizing to a 24-foot RV isn’t much of a surprise.

The couple took an extended trip from Nashville to California in a Class C motorhome. This helped them see that their family could survive in a smaller space than they thought.

Nathan and Marissa shared that the biggest reason for their downsizing was to have an agile and more fuel-efficient vehicle. This allows them to avoid towing another car behind them during their travels. Their future travel plans will require a more agile vehicle, and they’ll have the camper for any upcoming adventures too.

About the Winnebago Viva

Less Junk More Journey selected a 2016 Itasca Viva as their next home on wheels. It has everything the couple needs to live on the road and make memories together. Let’s dive into some of the features and why it’s excellent for their adventurous life.


The Viva is 23’ 11” long and 7’ 6” wide. It sits on top of a Ram ProMaster chassis. It has a sleek and modern exterior and a matching interior. The RV has a six-speed automatic transmission and gets its power from a 3.6L V6 gas engine. 


The floorplan for the Viva is perfect for the Moss family. There may not be a tremendous amount of room or any slides, but the setup couldn’t be better. There’s a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping space for six. 

You may wonder how the Viva has space for six. It’s primarily due to the retractable bed they can raise and lower from the ceiling as needed. This helps maximize the area and provide everyone with the most comfort. 


The 2016 Winnebago Itasca Viva features a rearview camera, a power awning, a built-in generator, and a roof-mounted air conditioner. Additionally, the kitchen has a two-burner stove, a microwave, and enough space to prepare some delicious meals on the road. 

The compact size of the Viva makes it easy to drive and park. The family will access areas that wouldn’t have been convenient in their larger rigs during their time on the road. As Less Junk More Journey proves, this is an excellent RV for couples and families that want to move fast and take their travels to the next level.
