Just saying that the length restrictions tend to be on the ultra conservative side. Good to be accurate, but if its a site you know you will fit on, just give them the ## they want.
You are a trailer not a tent.
Many years ago I had a favorite campground that I would take the family to. I also had certain sites that I preferred. One of the sites sat deep in the woods and I was able to put a 32 ft TT on that site.
Every time that I would call and make a reservation for that site I was asked for the length of my TT and the reason was that they didn't want anything over 25ft on that site. And the reason for that restriction was due to the road that lead to the site. You had to know exactly how to position yourself or otherwise you would wind up in a deep ditch and need to be pulled out. So when I asked for that site and they asked my length I would tell them to check the records and that I had been on that site many times in the past. I would then get a reply OH your the guy that knows how to put 32 ft on a 25 ft site.
There are many reasons why campgrounds will have a length limit on certain sites. You and I may know what we are doing and know our limitations But its the other guy that has no idea what he is doing and when he gets into problems it generally means problems for others. Imagine being stuck in a ditch and blocking a road when its check in time for many others that are arriving.
