Question 3500 Sprinter Coach Lengths

I am trying to understand all the tradeoff and benefits of the 3500 Sprinter platform versus the Gas Ford/Chevy platforms.

The last issue for me is the physical footprint compared with lets say the largest full size super crew pick up as I have some constraint parking at my condo complex. The is a wall on the perimeter so I can't hang over the rear end I will need to back up to a wall and not hang out and obstruct the driveway.

from what I can tell the length of full size pick ups are as follows;

These full-size pickup trucks are long-several feet longer than a typical average sedan. These four competitors vary in length by no more than 3 inches. The longest is the Ford F-150 SuperCrew 4x2 (231.7 inches), followed by the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab 4x2 (230.2) and Toyota Tundra CrewMax 4x2 (228.7). The shortest is the Ram 1500 Crew Cab 4x2 (227.5 inches).

I think 231.7" is 19.3' and the 3500 Sprinters (ERA & Plateau) from what I can tell are 289.2" or 24.1' which is about 4.8' longer than the biggest pickup which I think may obstruct the driveway if I park in our lot. I will need to measure the spot today but can you confirm my or correct my numbers?

Also what are your thoughts/experience on this? The 3500 seems to offer more things I was looking for but if it doesn't fit where I will need to park it it doesn't matter...

Thoughts please?
