Stacker/Cargo Trailer and RV sites

We are considering the purchase of a stacker trailer for our car and motorcycle. One of our concerns is finding RV sites that can accommodate the length without unhooking. Has this been an issue for you? Would also appreciate hearing about personal experience with towing this type of trailer...are you happy with your decision? We've been full-timing for a year now, and have rarely seen this combo in RV parks. Thanks in advance!

We are 67 ft long, and so far only once out of 100+ campgrounds have we had a problem. We never unhook and always ask for a pull through. The key is to call before you show up, make sure they have pull throughs available.

Good Luck!

I'm over 70', and like DegoRed planning is key. I have had to unhook at three different parks in 4 years of trailering , but they did not charge me anything extra. In fact, one of the locations allowed me to plug in my trailer (I don't have a stacker) in to 30 amp service for free and the other moved the trailer for me to their storage area. Unhooking isn't that big of deal and I have always had access to my trailer as I keep my Harley inside overnight for security and weather reasons.

My MH and race car trailer are about 68 feet combined. Yes, you can find places to stay. Is it always a snap, no way.

The biggest problem we have encountered is the lack of "understanding" as to what constitutes a big rig.

We've been told on the phone "oh yeah, no problem, we have plenty of room". Then on arrival discovered we couldn't come close to fitting in the spot they had saved for us.

It seems most RV parks will say whatever it takes to get your dollars in the gate. Once you've committed for at least a 1 night stay they figure it's too late and you're too tired to leave. They're usually right about the 1 night but we remember the places that are worth remembering!
