We have had length issues lots of times in the 10 1/2 years we have owned our coach. I would say most public parks in National Parks and some States spaces big enough to accept 40 foot is rare. Most newer commercial RV parks are fine with over 40, but I always tell them the size of our rig in case some of their sites will not fit.

I cannot imagine owning an RV that might be too big for an RV park.
I like em under 25 feet. Then they fit almost everywhere.


And I cannot imagine anything less than 40'!

Thx for all the info. You are really making it tough on me to get the 45’ I am fixing to pull the trigger on. I am thinking maybe a 40’ would be better but now to convince the wife and kids on that.

Like the Dirty Harry movies "a man just needs to know his limitations"! If you can't go where you want, there is likely somewhere nearby that you can. Generally this means a higher nighly cost (and sometime much higher) but you will be able to find somewhere to park near where you want to visit. State and City parks will be the most challenging but we find to be some of the best in the Country. They put them there for a reason and that's usually the view or the location or both.
We have been very happy with our 40 footer but it's all about the floor plan. There are 45 footers that have less living room than my 40 foot coach. Also, if you plan to have slides you may be quite surprised how much living room you have with the slides out in the 40 foot and still have some money left over to pay for those times you have to pay too much for a site.

What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?
