Out here in the western states, we have tall canopies and plenty of room to get turned around. I have had fears about being too tall at 13'6" and having this happen

As I approach a business or low overhang I ask myself; "Is this someplace that a Semi might pull through or use?" If not the radar goes up and I start worrying about clearance.

This is a valid argument for requiring licenses to drive RV's, and pull trailers.

The idiots at most gas stations including Flying J, Loves and Pilot place the pumps in front of the store, facing the store with parking in front so RV's longer than 25 foot can't use them. It's so fustrating that I'm glad I switched from a class A gasser to a diesel 5th wheel.... In WV I had to exit 4 exits before I found a station that had parallel pumps that my 50' rig would fit in... Who ever designs these places never had a RV.....

I agree about pump placement issues. I think that all of the outside pumps should be diesel only. I say that because there is nothing more frustrating than a bunch of cars and gasser pickups are left blocking the diesel pumps while people are inside shopping or standing in line at Subway and haven't even started pumping gas when there are several open gasoline only pumps!

PLEASE NO! I use only the outside pumps to fill my gas motorhome (and toad). At most of the stations I would feel uncomfortable using a center aisle.

Didn't really think of that. Maybe it would be better just to have a dedicated island or better spacing between all of the pumps instead.

I was just venting my frustrations about where I have to fill up almost everyday while I'm at work.
