Yosemite

Has anybody tried to get a 36' Fifth Wheel into the Yosemite Valley Floor?
We just went in for the day and rode our bikes through each campground. We saw lots of Class As but not 5th wheels

I drove our 38 ft class A if I recall correctly there is a max combined limit that I would have breached if I had towed our car in behind us.

Maximum RV/trailer lengths: In Yosemite Valley, the maximum RV length is 40 feet and maximum trailer length is 35 feet, however, only a total of 8 sites of this size are available (six sites in Lower Pines and two in North Pines, which are open spring through fall). Many more sites exist in Yosemite Valley and elsewhere in Yosemite that can take RVs up to 35 feet or trailers up to 24 feet.
Seems like you could do it with 36ft, assuming you could get a good site.

They have used 40" busses on the main roads for years. The problem is in finding parking for the longer rigs. As the above there are only a very limited amount of sites that would hold a long 5er and truck. And unless you were there mid week or off season you won't find public parking either. If you are only there for the day, you might look at parks outside of YNP, and just put the bikes in the truck. Good Luck. DR

I will add that in the park the do not allow you to park with tires on the dirty must be on asphalt. They will notice. Our small suv just fit sideways in front of our rv.

After reading the length limitations on their website, I presume that I will be able to park my 29' trailer on the site, but then will need to park my 22' truck in the overflow lot. I won't be able to park it crosswise in front of the trailer and stay off the dirt.
