A new Host Mammoth will be in the $50-60K OTD price range based on the options you choose, so that is more than you want spend. The Eagle Cap 1165 has much more storage than the Lance 1172 because the floor is bed rail height. The EC 1160 layout is closer to the Lance but with more storage. Did you look at the Adventurer 116DS?
Toilet height is an issue for people with shorter legs in any of the Hosts because you are sitting on top of the black tank that is part of the slide out. You need some type of folding foot stool for these people. I know light and fan controls on the ceiling are inaccessible for shorter people inside any of these campers, so make sure you can reach them or that they have remote controls or wall mounted switches.
BTW: A camper that is off focus from what you have looked at, but may be of interest is the Northstar 12 STC. It's a large camper with easy access to the dry bath, but no slides.
