Welcome to the forum! We traded a 33' Class A for a 2016 Vegas 25.2 just over 2 years ago, and call it our Goldilocks coach, not too big, not too small, just right (for us and the way we travel)!
We wouldn't consider a corner bed, and really like the walk around queen and bigger shower that the 25.2 has. We pull a small car four down (no dolly) and the Vegas has served us well for long trips and short.
I have a checklist for trip preparation, and another one for departure. Breaking camp is easier with a list, and only takes a few minutes.
You can search for previous comments on boondocking. If you are asking about a night in a truck stop, rest area, store or restaurant parking lot, there are mixed opinions. We have slept in front of many WMts and Cracker Barrels, and saved a lot of money.
There are several forums and blogs devoted to living and traveling full time in an RV. You'll learn a lot from them!
