We love our Vegas 25.2 and it fits us just right. But RVs are like shoes, what fits me might not be the right style for you.
RVs are not like a car, where you expect few maintenance problems from a new vehicle. With the limited free time you described, you might want to consider a good used RV for your first one. Your investment will be less, and you can better determine your ideal rig. New RVs almost always have some issues that have to be resolved under warranty. You won't find many 25.2 or 25.3 models available, but there are many used Class C units available.
Two other ideas to consider, for a new one, you could wait until spring to order a 2019. We did this in 2015, and picked up our 2016 model in June of 2015. Every model year brings a few refinements, and you'll be rewarded when you go to sell or trade. (My 2016 with 15K shows worth $9,000 more than the same 2015, looking at low retail on NA DA.)
The other idea is to check prices from Total Value in Elkhart, IN and other dealers in that area. We saved a whole lotta $$$ in delivery fees by picking ours up in Ohio. Paul Sherry RV near Dayton gave us the best deal with our trade in.
Only some of us learn by other people's mistakes, the rest have to be the other people!
