Is my coach too big?

We have a 42 ft coach. Is this too big for a trip to Canada and Alaska?

How about camping in the lower 48? We have been denied access to only a few parks. Is this typical? Thanks.

Why would you think it's too big? Truckers do it all the time and they're bigger/heavier than yours or ours rigs.

Your not too big to drive to Alaska or through Canada. You may find some provincial parks can't accommodate you either because what spaces that have that can fit you are taken or just don't handle 42' ers. Having said that, there are always some choices including private RV parks and when you get into the north, hell, just pull off to the side of the road someplace if you want.

Last time we stopped in Jasper AB, for the night there was a convoy of 45' MHs all with toads, from TX heading to AK, I'm pretty sure they all made it .
