When making reservations at a CG I'm always asked the length of my 28rss. I usually tell them "29 ft but I have a rear queen slide that extends another 5 or so feet." I figure that this is the safe way to go in order to insure I get a site that will fit my rig. I am curious to see how others answer when asked this question?

I also add the length of the rear slide. Many campgrounds don't have 6 feet of extra space behind the site. Bigger is better!

I give them the TT lenght because most sites allow 1 TV. Have had no problems so far-knock on wood- but mabey I should rethink after reading the above posts. Kirk

Bob,

You are actually 35'-2" tongue to extended rear bed. Out here in Oregon, our state park sites are listed by the total driveway length so you do have to consider the TV as well. We are 55' combined.

Usually you can hang the rear slide past the end of the driveway, but the one time I REALLY broke that rule big time (by 7 feet!), I ended up with a big Doug Fir exactly at the end of the driveway. The way it was growing, I did not have so much as an inch of extra space. That trip required some creative parking techniques!


Happy Trails,
Doug

Doug, Doug, Doug . . . . for shame. You rookies. Geesh! Can't we teach you anything? You really didn't have to answer Bob, Doug . . . er, since he posted his question in March of 2004.


Some people just never loin.


Heh, heh. I just couldn't resist.

I guess I have the ONLY 40' Outback!!!!

I tell them it is 40' and if they say they don't have a site that long, I ask "How long of a site do you have?"
