30 amp sites are not even a worry. I never understand the people that say we can't be on 50 amp. My guess they have no experience with all electric and are guessing.
Our Oasis system uses less 12 volt power then the 2 propane furnaces. We cook with the microwave on inverter power with no issues.
Our refig is always the right temp, frozen stuff is always frozen. Endless supply of hot water for showers.
Never having to find a place to fill the propane tank.
We don't do a lot of boondocking, but what we have done hasn't been any sort of issue.
I guess I don't understand what you mean by the statement "I never understand the people that say we can't be on 50 amp." There's no problem with a 50 amp hookup. The 30 Amp hookup or no hookup is where the propane option comes in handy.
With a 30 amp hookup the energy management system prioritizes what systems will run. If you have multiple air conditioners, residential refrigerator, an electric range, and an electric water heater the system will have to choose which will run and which will have to wait.
With the propane option the fridge, cook top, and water heater can be running on propane so the AC's and microwave don't have to wait their turn.
If you have no hookup I doubt you can run more than a couple of the appliances without running the generator. When most people talk about boon docking they aren't talking about staying overnight in a Wal-Mart. They're talking about a week or more off the grid.
We had the option of going all electric or staying with the propane option. We chose the propane option because of the places we like to go. As for storage space lost to a propane tank I would venture to guess that an 8 battery bank takes as much or more room than a propane tank.
Again there is no right or wrong. If there were there would only be 1 brand 1 model, 1 size, and 1 type of coach on the market. It isn't a one size fits all scenario. Everyone chooses what best fits the way they use their coach.
