I think that is a gross exaggeration. Some older parks were laid out when the average RV was under 35 ft, but the majority of RV parks can accommodate 35-40 ft. We traveled in a 40 footer for 12 years and always found places to stay. Of course, in a big rig we were choosing parks with full hook-up sites, not rustic sites. Maybe it depends on what you are looking for.My 2 cent for you depending what length you looking for 35' to 40' maybe. The problem is anything over 35' will not fit in most US camp grounds. Some do have room for larger or longer RV's. I have a 37' with 3 slides and 2 baths. Wanted to go to a couple of State beaches but they max out at 35'. Good Luck and have fun shopping
Based on your first post it seems you'd like a turnkey solution that meets 90% of your desires.
For me the research goes something like this.
1 - Look at some new class As, Class Cs and Super Cs - Definitely decide what you are after. If I don't narrow it down I will get stuck with too many variables.
2 - Pay attention to floor plan, floor plan, floor plan
Totally agree! Narrowing it down will help with focus and avoid becoming lost. Which I am trying to do. Can I expect to meet 90% of my wants turnkey realistically?Bottom line for you is probably a 3-5 year old super C. But that's just an opinion.
I agree with Gary. When I was traveling in a 39 foot DP we never had any problems finding a space in an NP. Most of the NPs have RV parks very close to the entrance with long sites.I think that is a gross exaggeration.

I just figured he could sleep over driver area in most class c or super c. Just needed some kind of door that was better than the fabric mesh that my big arse dog could tear through (she is expensive since a trailer without her would be cheaper lol)...pocket door or true door was cool not just for “parent privacy” but big-honking-dog-proof.If I really decided I needed two private spaces (kids or visitors) I would seriously go bunkhouse
You might consider a Super Class C which are bigger than the Class C and usually have more cargo capacity. My dream Super C would be the Nexus Ghost, but it's very expensive. Don't know what your budge is, but here's a 2016 Ghost near me which is pretty cheap at $109,995 and has a king size bed. https://www.rvtrader.com/listing/2016-Nexus-Rv-Ghost-36DS-5014581352

Our good friends have a Super C. They just bought their second one a Enterga Accolade after saying the Nexus they owned had too many problems. We are considering this option as well. My friend is a mechanic and says " One of the benefits of a Super C is truck stops will work on them."Thank you all! I knew you would provide loads of wisdom & invaluable insight!
It looks like class C may not work as far as cargo capacity. I am ok up’ing my budget if worth it...just paranoid about an expensive yard decoration lol. It is a new concept to me to not base my purchase on reliability & service...but I have been eduacated on how that does not apply in the RV world. Still I would like to be as smart as I can be, even if that may not matter lol. I can deal with the drawbacks if I am realistically prepared (which you guys are preparing me for).
Have any of you bought an IWS super class C? His video provided a lot of information & even if I do not buy from him, makes me steer towards super C’s and willing to put more out there for longevity. But it “looks” like they provide great service to so would like to hear from anyone that has experience with them.
This is the video. I found it insightful & helpful on many things. But I am a noob lol!
Are those realistic observations & facts? Or just dealer sales manipulations? I felt more educated after watching but could just be my noobiness lol.
Again thank you everyone!
