M/C trailer and RV parks

Purchased a CanAm Spyder and will be hauling it in a trailer. My question is, if the RV park does not have pull through spots how do you park the trailer. I'm debating open verses enclosed thinking it will be easer to manhandle the open if I can't find a pull through. I'd prefer an enclosed but concerned about weight if I have to manhandle it.

Any info on pulling a trailer behind you RV and experience with RV parks will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The few times that there wasnt a pull through available there was a place to park my trailer. I pull a 8.5x20 enclosed.

I pull a 20 x 8.5 car carrier with my Can Am Spyder inside. It can be a challenge at times, but we've managed. Some parks are tight, like the Las Vegas Thousand Trails where I had to maneuver a bit and drop the trailer, then back the coach in with barely enough room to open our door.

Presently we're backed into a site at the Bend-Sun River Thousand Trails with no problem. In between we've managed to score pull-throughs.
