Welcome from recently retired RVers from Anacortes. We had a 32' Class A and the cost of fuel and CG fees finally ran us off. In our view, a 32-footer was just about right. A permanent rear bedroom was the clincher. With our previous 26' Class C, having to build the bedroom every night and dismantle it before we could set out the next day got old really quickly
As I said many times to boating neighbors, "you can't visit the Grand Canyon in a boat" and "one lump of rock sticking out of the sea and covered in fir trees looks a lot like the others".
A local SP for a weekend shakedown is a very good idea. Good luck with your longer-term adventures, too.
