I'm willing to pay someone in the area who would try my driveway with their RV. I live in Roseville, outside of Sacramento. Need to do this soon. - Bob 916-768-9800
Those UHaul moving trucks sit very low, call the seller and find out how much overhang you have behind the rear axle and height. You may find a truck with similar dimensions. If you find it's really close but just touching there are rollers which attach to the receiver hitch/frame, made for just that situation. I've read where movable transition plates are used also. I lived on the side of Signal Mtn. in Tn. years back, we couldn't park in our driveways when snow and ice were forecast or it would have been a quick trip back down into Redbank next morning.
