Talking 5th Wheel - Parking on Incline

We've been campers our whole life but newbies to 5th wheels. My folks are coming up to visit with thier 5th wheel and state parks are booked solid which means Im trying to consider the driveway. Its about a 5.2% incline - is it safe? What do you guys think?

sorry about the damn slanted pics. chaaaaa.

That drive is way too steep, it looks to be almost straight 90 degrees.

Your folks shouldn't have any problems with that incline, I have been in a lot of campgrounds that are much worse than that. Have them back in and enjoy the time together.
