Good day all!

Are there any hard and fast "rules" about getting a 36' class A with two slides into state run campgrounds. We're planning our move to fulltiming, and will be towing a trailer for our two motorcycles. I've heard that the length limit is "usually" 35', but haven't had much luck in trying to find anything about length limits on the parks' websites.

Thanks for any input on this.

Mackerman, welcome to iRV2.

The rules are not hard and fast.

I don't think that 1 foot will be a deal breaker.

Most of us have found that a phone call to the campground will answer those questions.

Unfortunately, not always correctly.

My coach is 34' and we do a lot of camping in state parks. When reserving (on line) I always look for a site rated at 30' or better. I have never had a problem getting my coach into these sites.

If the website (ReserveAmerica.com) lists the site under 30' I don't reserve these sites, as these sites for sure may be a problem getting in.

Don't forget the trailer....the motorhome might fit but no room for the trailer.

Ok, that brings up the next question - does pulling a trailer count towards the total number of feet allowed for a spot?

If you intend to keep it hitched when set up, then yes.

If you are going to unhitch it, you need to be sure of a place to park it.

The only time I had a length problem was in Red Deer, AB when I had a 27' Class C. That was in 1989. They were crowded & I got stuck in overflow but they had tent sites available. From 35 to 38' in the last 10 years we have never had a problem.
