Class A length and state and national parks

My wife and jumping into the world of RVing and intend to become full time "live aboards". On the one hand we are looking for creature comforts and recognize that to a large extent the more creature comforts we have the longer the coach. On the other hand, we want to make maximum use of state and national parks. Our question is, if we choose a 38-40 footer, how restricted will we be on getting into state and national parks?

Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.

You might give Nina and Paul a shout at their blog. They have been traveling for a few years now in their 40' Holiday Rambler Endeavor mostly staying in public locations.

You will not fit into 85 percent of the state and national parks with anything over 35 ft. and that is really pushing it. For comfort on the site you need to be no more than 30 ft. The parks were built and designed for smaller trailers and MH's.
