New to RVing and interested in a 27 foot class C. Initially wanted to go with a smaller footprint but am willing to go up in size to get the amenities we want. How much more difficult is it to find spots for an RV of this size? Ease of use versus a smaller 24ish foot B+? Thanks!
 

We had a 40' motorhome and had absolutely no difficulty with campgrounds.

If you mean campsites then it would be difficult to find an RV park or campground that has very many sitess that are too small for a rig of 27' or even 30' lenght. There are a few parks that still have some sites too small for those but very few. I would suspect that at least 95% of the RV sites available in the US are amply large for a 27' class C.

On the other hand, if by spots you mean parking places to put the RV when driving it to tourist attractions and such, that is more difficult. Even the 24' long B would have some problems but in either case it could be managed most of the time.

That was our experience with a 24' motorhome. If we could back into a space where the rear could overhang a curb we fit in one space. Otherwise we had to find two spaces front to back and take part of each of them. We did that on the street in both Chicago and Miami by finding two meters between an alley and a bus stop in downtown Chicago and one spot in front of a loading area in Miami where a meter maid assured us we would be fine there. All big box stores offer such spaces if you are willing to walk from the back of the lot. We sometimes got into a campground because only the short spots were left--we even did that in a 35' motorhome because the 40' ones wouldn't fit. I say, go for it.
