It seems to me at the campgrounds we have been to, the truck cannot straighten out without hitting the campers in the opposing pad and at some point you need to straighten out the truck! Yet I see big 5th wheels in these spots so it must be possible....
It's always fun. I drove semi for years so I'm used to getting a big rig into small places but you always have to check the site out before you try to get in. My rig is 61' long.
We try to get pull throughs but even then they can leave a tree at the end of the pad so pulling out won't work. I usually have them take me to the site in their cart to see it before I pull the 5th down to it. That way I can see if I'm going to fit and if there is anything in the way.
Bill & Linda. If it doesn't move and should, WD-40 it. If it moves and shouldn't, duct tape it. F-350 dually, 40' Sunnybrook Titan toy hauler and custom Harley
