I am new to RVing as well and started with a 40 foot Fleetwood class A with three sliders. The basement storage is outstanding. I will tell you that when the sliders are in you will be cramped with 4-6 people in the RV. I would suggest finding a model that has space for people when sliders are in.
I like the Fleetwood on the freight liner chassis.
For me, big is better. You will appreciate it when you are setup in a park.

By dumb luck we have enough storage available that we can pack food in the fridge Friday night and go. All clothes and outside items for camping are stowed easily. I took this for granted until we saw other A's that don't have the same room. We also have to take or own water to some places and our tank is too small. Look at the size of the tank. Our twenty gal. is not enough. Two days max when the two of us take a quick shower. The sleeping is really set up for two. Our mh would not be large enough for a family. If our kids would be younger we would have bought a 32/34 foot A. For two of us the 25 foot A is perfect. Good luck on your purchase. Can't wait for spring!, Tom
Very good advice, Tom. Tank sizes (both fresh and wastewater) will be VERY important when traveling with a family.

If I had your money, I'd burn mine.
