Smile FR3 30ds vs 28ds

I'm a newbie and have been looking at both Class As and Class Cs. I'm leaning toward Class As - drove both an FR3 and a Forester, around the same length and liked the FR3 better. Just wondering if anyone has experience with the 28ds - I like the length but when the bedroom slide comes out, its around 32-33ft. Does this present a problem when getting a camp site? Also, how annoying is the fold up bed? Any issues sleeping on it (where the two mattresses meet)? One of the things I didn't like in both the 30ds and 28ds are the lack of cup holders and the lack of a shelf near the bed - I wear glasses and if I'm reading or using my phone or iPad, I'd like to have someplace to stow them. Wondering if anyone has developed solutions to that issue. Thanks!

I put my phone on top of the window blinds valance before I go to sleep on the 30DS

No issues with the retractable bed. The 30 has a "nightstand" on one side. Other than the AC, I'm a happy camper.

We have a 25 ds which does have a shelf for a small box to use as a nightstand. But I find that the window valance is a better spot to leave my reading glasses and mouth guard holder. It's flat and pretty big.

Rather than have a cup of water, I use a sports water bottle and just keep it in the corner between the mattress and the wall.

If you get the coach you will find ways to improvise!
