Yeah, I've seen the same over the years. I'm a wildlife photographer putting on presentations and visiting five coastal campgrounds in an immensely popular area dozens of times a year, beyond our own camping. We see plenty of the largest rigs on the road...at certain locations, and know where it's very unlikely to find anyone over about 30-35'.
It's a compromise, like so many of the choices made with RVs. Get the most room in your RV and you have the most room, but you're not going to fit into some campgrounds and within some campgrounds you're not going to fit into the best sites.
To some this compromise is a problem, and we see accounts of people downsizing to go more places. We all know this to be true, right?
