First Time with a longer trailer

We'll be heading to campground we know well, but this will be the first time with a longer trailer. Depending on whether you count the tongue or not, the new TT is 7-10 feet longer than the old one, and there are some pretty steep dips on the road. Wish us luck - 'cause if we find out on the way that we can't get there, we're not sure how we're getting back out again!

I went in a old logging trail to stay with my old 35' 5er at a small cottage with friends...up and down inclines and sharp bends. I couldn't turn around when I got there and had to back out the whole 1 mile. Wasn't easy.
So if you can drive in...you can back out.

We have a White Hawk 23MRB. The clearance is about 12", but some of the dips are darned steep. We're a little worried about getting stuck and not being able to go either way, but we really love the campground, so we're gonna give it a try ....

Maybe you should bring some 4 foot 2x6's with you. If you see your back end is about to drag then you could put them under the wheels for 3" of lift or slide them under the back end and let the back of the frame drag across wood instead of stones.
If you end up not using them then you'll have some good dry campfire wood.

Good luck.
