Wholly smack...my Class A has a 242" wheelbase (37.3' LOA). 340" is a long truck. What is planned for the middle 20ish feet of chassis?

-subscribed- Want to see what the experts say.

Best luck

A legacy sleeper and a drone box. To have the best of both worlds.

Good luck with camping at the rest areas. I had a Pete 387 conversion coach with a 356" wheelbase,...and it was 41' long. By the time you finish that, you'll be looking at around 85'.

I guess, the question that I have is, what's your main plan for the whole rig. My TC that I had was 41' and I had a 31' stacker to haul toys to the dunes, or to and from Texas, from Phoenix. 95% of our use was dry camping. So total length wasn't a major factor. Whenever we were staying at a campground, we didn't have to worry about the TC, because it was no different than a Class A. If you're looking to stay at campgrounds with the whole rig,...the wheelbase on both your TC and 5th wheel is what's gonna be the limiting factor. I'm pretty sure you've already thought about that. If you're ever passing through Phoenix and need somewhere to stop, you're more than welcome. I got enough room to park 5 rigs just in my driveway alone. Whatever you do, keep us informed,...I'd like to know how it all works out for you.

We've been nailed to our farm for what seems to be a lifetime so boon docking looks really good for us. With this type of rig we figure we can park the fifth wheel and use the truck for short trips into length restricted parks. Its just an idea we have. Thought we would toss it around on line and see if its doable .Thanks for the invite we have a lot of relation in Arizona when they get sick of us lol. we'll give you a shout
