Hi, all-

The good news: We bought a new RV at the Hershey Show last week.

The not-quite-as-good news: We had our winter trip all planned out months
ago with our smaller camper in mind. Some of the sites we have reserved
are just not going to work for us and we'll cancel on those.

But on two, the max vehicle length is only a couple feet shorter than our new
camper-- even though the sites themselves actually measure 65' and 73' in
length. Photos don't show any trees in the back or curves that would make
it hard to back in or anything like that.

So my question is this: Have you ever reserved a site listing a max vehicle
length just a smidgeon smaller than your RV? Any horrible consequences?
Did the park ranger come over with his tape measurer and toss you out?

(These are gravel sites at FL state parks, btw)

As always, any/all courteous replies and relevant insights are greatly
appreciated.

My wife makes the reservations. when she calls she tells them what we have. A 25 ft semi truck, a 35 ft 5th wheel trailer and a small car. Then asks if they have a site big enough for all our stuff.

This summer it was amazing on how many campground owners/managers/employees have no idea what a semi truck, a 35 ft 5th wheel trailer and a small car looks like on some of the sites they tried to put us in and ones we were able to get into. rolleyes.gif

"Oh I didn't know you had a semi truck."
"Wow that trailer is a lot taller then I thought it would be".
"WOW!!! How long are you?"

So all you can do is tell them what you have and hope for the best when you pull in. biggrin.gif
