Congrats, what are you picking up ?
We were in Cheyenne WY, went by the train station , following the directions of the GPS in our 31 ft Class C , pulling our Jeep, when we ended up on a dead in road due to construction in a popular tourist area . . .. what a mess . . . . I was blocking the street, a parking lot and everything else, had to unhook the Jeep, drive it a block away, parked in a no parking zone... and then painstakingly got my rig turned around 30 minutes later I was getting out of there. Then there was the time we were at the Windstar resort in Oklahoma and somehow when we were leaving we ended up on a cart path for the golf course...... no, I don't drink . . . . It happens . . . . .

No difference if you were driving a Class A or Super C.

FWIW I also usually try to make route reversals by turning left into a large parking lot where I can either do a loop or a turning maneuver. That way I am always only crossing traffic flow in 1 direction so it is easier to find a hole in the flow. ;-)

FWIW2 I always park in any lot so I have a basic straight shot out. Too many morons who park close to the MH thus inhibiting turning. If that means I take 4 spaces on a diagonal that is the breaks. That's why I am out near the end of the row.
