Title: My trailer is growing
Post by: UTTransplant on February 01, 2018, 06:53:40 PM
Well, it has happened again. My 28.5’ nose to tail trailer was given a site more suitable for a Class B than a mid-sized trailer. I always fudge a little and tell them I have a 30’ trailer, but that didn’t work this time. The first site had sewer connection right in the middle of the site where it would have been underneath the trailer. We categorically rejected that. Next one is so short that there is no way the truck fits sideways. It also is so narrow that the truck won’t fit at the side. This has happened before, but I think I have a solution. Next time I am going to say my trailer is 35’!

Then they will say that they only have sites for 32' and send you down the road. ;)

I reserved a site in a PA state park that was 40' deep.  What they didn't tell me it was curved and it made for a ridiculous back in entry and setup.

I would much rather have that than find out the site is unsuitable after I have driven there, checked into the office, and paid the fee. I just want campgrounds to be honest about their facilities. If they were, I would t have to resort to exaggeration.
