What about a 5th wheel? Let's say it's 30ft long you have a truck 20ft long. When hitched up overall length is roughly 46.5 ft long bumper to bumper. Now while at campsite your unhitched so now your 50ft long. So what have the fiver's been doing? Do you only book 50ft or greater or can you sneak into a 46.5ft site or maybe even a 45ft being you could hang the bumper over the cement stop at the end of pad. I've herd you can get 5er's in tighter spots then tt because of pivot points.

Each unit brings with it it's own set of circumstances. As I said often a sight may have parking parallel to the rig, rather than in front. Also a 5r because of height, may have limitations as to where it can be parked. Tree's and other vegitation may limit access to some sites. Another reason to be honest in your rigs length is utilities. It's why you are asked if you need 30 or 50 amp service. It is assumed that a unit 34' and under will be 30 amp and over that 50 amp. When making reservation online if you under estimate the length and are not asked specifically what your needs are, you may be in for a surprise when you arrive at your site. Bottom line, the more accurate and complete your information is when making a reservation, the better you can be placed in the correct site.

Well what size is your trailer? On my mobile device I can't see details. Doesn't look like your over 24'. That spot does look nice and open to a larger trailers size.
