If you really must have a large rig with 4 slides you are limiting yourself as to types of campgrounds you will be confortable in. If you can accept that then get the biggest rig you want. We stayed with a 30' fifthwheel and it is well suited for all types of camping. We do both -- 3 month stays at an RV Resort and sightseeing trips staying in ordinary CGs. We have stayed in Wal Mart about 3 or 4 times. If you are travelling and just want to pull in, sleep, and get on the road early the next day Wal Mart parking lots are fine. But they are noisey and lack electricity and water. In winter I want my electric blanket. Our generator is small and requires refueling in the middle of the night. Dear Husband would much rather pay for a campsite than get dressed and refuel the generator.

We like having our own level of sanitation on board as we travel. We love the people we meet along the way! Most campers are friendly and helpful. No one even speaks to you in a hotel lobby.

In the RV world there is a lifestyle and type of rig for each personality.

So I don't care for crowds at all, like the quiet and am pretty much a private person. My DW likes talking and mingling. So a mix here. That being said, we like the usual stuff of having your MH, own bed etc. We like getting away, seeing other things and the nice thing is if I am tired of the "crowd", I can go inside. Its actually pretty quite in there, comfortable and home.
We use it for dog shows so some times end up boondocking at the venue. There's a mix, usually close and even those loud generators. But still going inside does it for me when I have had enough. That being said, it is still fun to meet people, people watch and visit.
As far as parks, we don't like to be on top of each other. Sometimes it just pot luck. We've stayed in some that were kinda close but good views over the lake. To give you an example of how things can turn out. We stopped at a park late one evening, couldn't see much but DW had called ahead. Next morning, found it was not so good a place and a guy on a mower threw stuff into the MH. We left in a hurry heading to a KOA not far away after several phone calls around the area. The owners warned us there would be 500 people there for a potjie festival but he could put us in the over flow area. We decided to try it one night. We ended up staying four nights there, met a lot of interesting people, ate a lot of good food and whenever I got tired of the food and music, back to the MH. It was really a good experience.
So I guess the short of it is, you will have both good and bad but in the end it is what you make it. Hope that helps.
