Had the same issue

When my Dad gave up his 37' DP he gave it to my wife and I. Had the same issue. Only way I could get it into my driveway was backing in from downhill side at an angle. Decided to go with a 32' gasser and had the private seller bring to my house and try it as a condition of sale. Still need to come in from downhill side and approach at an angle but much more forgiving. Can't hurt to ask a seller when the time comes.

Thanks again for all the comments. This incline is just to get on my street (it's actually called a Turnabout). I'll never get it up my drive way but I do have room for a a 34-36 across the front. I live on Vancouver Island and being close to the ocean here it's pretty hilly...

throb I will again recommend the heavy duty, non swiveling wheels be mounted on your hitch. I have skids on my 33ft class A, they were badly worn and worn more than half way through. Visiting my family in Federal way WA, very hilly near the bay, I tore gouge in ft of pavement in ft of their home. Got a set of the Castor's that when mounted are just about 1/2 inch below my skids, problem solved, my visit to them in august this year No drag just rolled over. My drop hitch for the toad also cleared. I believe I paid about $55.00 for them. If I ever sell this beast I will in bolt them and use them on the next MH I get. Best luck enjoy your travels I love the Washington Islands.

That's good question to consider. Don't forget to considering height of the motorhome with regards to low hanging branches or wires on the residential streets or over your property access.

Best of luck in your search!

Hey Rob, where on Vancouver Island. I'm full timing it in Qualicum Bay but probably moving to another RV Park as this one will be closing soon. I'm getting my home reno'd in the Eaglecrest area of Qualicum Beach; it should be done roughly mid-November.

PS: Lots of cougar sightings in Parksville recently.

You certainly can't go by see'ing delivery trucks on the road. Those things have huge ground clearance compared to a M.H!
