The essential function of a planer is to make the top face of the wood parallel to the bottom. This requires that you can adjust the cutters to be dead parallel to the bed of the planer. Never easy unless your planer comes with a fixture to ensure that it happens. 20 inches is much harder than 15.

If you plan on doing mostly rough work, it won't matter, but if you want to do fine woodworking it matters hugely.
