In many cases you can slide some of the limits, but really there are some real disadvantages to any coach over 40' being able to get into anything other than newer luxury RV parks. Was a chief complaint from sis and BIl in their Entegra. They were sorry they went that big, it really limits access.

Those things need a lot of room to turn and swing too, difficult to back into anything. Just forget about older parks and campgrounds.

The Parks I'm talking about have ease of access as well as huge sites, and the Rangers have no issues with pretty much any RV entering the park. So we are following the guidance, rules, laws or whatever you want to call them. Just because they have not updated the website does not mean people are just doing whatever they want, or not following the rules. Unless you have actually stayed at some of these places and seen for yourself what can be accommodated, you will miss out on some pretty good places to stay. Oh well.

...unless I specifically see a 45' site or length limit, I always say I'm a 40 footer. The majority of the sites are large enough to accompany my 45 footer. Just gotta satellite view it to make sure. Never failed me yet. If it does, just gotta move on.

Just depends on your skill and comfortability.

Good luck!

I believe that the point being missed on the "45 foot law" is that it applies to the State, County, and City hwy, routes, and Rds. 45' RVs can be driven on any interstate or US hwy without any special permission. All other's need to have an exception. The Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1982 (STAA) All vehicles in compliance with the STAA can travel up to a minimum of a mile off of STAA routes for, fuel, food, or other necessary business. (US hwys can have separate height and weight restrictions from interstates.)

That seems a might vacuous.

I meant to say in my earlier post "a maximum" instead of "a minimum" of one mile unless the state, county, or city who has authority gives further permission.

Don't worry, its not really a law, just a suggestion for those paying attention. Cal State Parks and many other Public Parks, cities, counties, etc., are only interested in revenue.

Whoa!!!!

Now we're getting two conversations mixed up. The OP was regarding state park campsite sizes.

Now we're talking about highway limits.

This is getting confusing.
