Large Trailer?

When booking CGs it has large camper sites. I have a 30' TT w/ one slide. I'm assuming I dont need a large site.

I know in Washington State the state parks show the length and width of each pad. I also look at the pictures to see if I might have any problems. I have a 33' MH and take sites for the under 32' all the time. Because I know my backend will hang out over the pad. In your case the width is more of an issue then length. Measure your TT with the slide out and that will tell you what you need.

good luck

In most commercial campgrounds, "large" is more than 30' long and 12' wide. However, in state parks, Forest Service, National Park, and Corps of Engineers campgrounds, "large" is whatever they decide it is, often less than 25' long and 8' wide. Remember than most of those Govenment campgrounds were built back in the 1930s when a 24' TT with no slide was considered "large".

So if you're staying in a KOA, then I wouldn't worry about it. But if your campground of choice is in the Chikamunga National Forest, the you need to check out the actual site you're reserving.
