We are in NC as well. We like to go to some of the South Carolina State Parks. Hunting Island, Lake Wateree and Dreher Island to name a few. All 3 of these parks have sites plenty deep and wide enough for a 40+ unit with slides on both sides. I am only 33' and there are some sites in the Lake Wateree campground that I can park 2 of my TT's in there. We also camp with 2 families that both have 39 footers and they have not had any issues around here. Make sure when you make your reservations that you let them know how big the 5er is.

We toured the NE last fall, Maine, NH, VT, NY, Penn, VA, WV, etc and never had any problems with our 39.5' 5th wheel. I always requested pull thru sites which made a big difference. We stayed mostly at commercial campgrounds because we were sight seeing and not "camping". My biggest worry was my height. My 351RLSA is 13'2" with the front AC unit. I had made reservations at one campground in Maine, when I turned down the road to the cg I encountered a train tressel that was only 13'3", I had to stop and do some manuvering. I cancelled my reservations and then I downloaded the Allstays Low Clearance app to my Iphone. We also went out west for 30 days in 2010, with a 30' TT, didn't have any issues there either. I also have the Trailer Life Directory app on my Iphone, use it extensively to find campgrounds that accommodate big rigs. With technology today you shouldn't have any issues. I am going to down load the height warning to my TomTom GPS as well. Have fun, don't worry, be happy.

We also like to camp in SC State Parks, Dreher and Myrtle Beach. There are plenty of sites for big rigs, but mostly only 30 amp hook ups. The site descriptions on the reservation web site tells you how long and wide the sites are and the maximum lenght of unit that can be accomodated.

I think a lot would depend on what you are going to pull it with, how long you plan to stay or live in it. and how much time you have for traveling. I have a 35ft 5th wheel and we like the comfort and used it for long stays a month or more. Now that we are getting up in years and health problems. We will not be spending as much time traveling or staying to far from home. I will be selling or trading for a small TT maybe 28 to 30 ft long. I would use it for weekend camping close to home.
