I am guessing SOL stands for **** out of luck. I couldnít resist.

NO! Buy the trailer and enjoy it!

You have nothing to worry about. Your width is fine and you are only 19 feet long. At 19 feet you can park it most anywhere. Know your height. Some bridges can be very low.

I know this the trailer forum but the topic caught my eye.


My 28' Class C is 102", I have not had any trouble getting around and here in Michigan we have plenty of construction zones with narrow lanes.


It can make me a little nervous but so far I haven't nailed a cone or side rail.


Go camping and have fun.

Some of the new light weight trailers are 7í wide. Maybe you could look at those. They donít have slides so easier to set up.
Personally the bigger the better seems to be the current trend.

Overwidth RV's

As a commercial carrier (the guy that delivers it to the dealer) you would be over width unless they pay the overwidth permit fee who in turn passes it on to the dealer and you. You, as the owner are still over width but, no state I'm aware of enforces it unless your a commercial carrier

The idea of getting a fellow RV person to walk you thru the systems is a real good idea.

Good luck and safe travels.

This is what I do as well. I did it that way when we had the trailer, and now with the diesel pusher. Next month, Iím going to pick up a small trailer (because my big rig doesnít fit in some of the places I want to go...keeping the big rig for long rv Park type trips) similar size to @travelnoob, and will again do the same.

Do these camp site make it mandatory to use those special hoses or can you DIY a PVC system that links together. Just cause Iíd imagine a pvc line would be easier to clean then those groovy hoses. Then again there is weight to consider.
The reason for the flexible system instead of pvc is that youíll never be able to park the trailer exactly enough to get the solid pvc drain pipe to line up well enough with the dump to get the yuck where it needs to go.

May I add, get yourself some latex gloves for handling the stinky slinky.

Sewer Pipe storage

I just added a second storage location for the second section of sewer hose that wouldn't quite fit in my bumper. I used a 5" square white vinyl fence post which you can buy at Lowes or Home Depot. I attached it underneath but probably should have mounted it to the top of the bumper. They have square caps to cover the ends. I just glued one end and put bungees around the other to hold it on. I will come up with some more ingenious cover holder later. Super easy and pretty cheap. The reason I used fence post was 4" wasn't big enough and it jumps to 6" at Lowes and HD.

You could put a solar newel post cap on it!

It would provide campsite 'clearance markers'

I suspect your design was the root of all of those 'made especially for RV' holders for sale at Camping World.
