This isn't a trick of the photo, this awning is literally over the roadway. I drove under it in just my truck.

Turning too tight and taking the stop sign and post out in the Walmart parking lot is pretty effective too. Let’s not go into how I found this technique.

Like my mother used to say "Smart like rubber boot"

Looks like the next guy down is sticking out into the roadway too.

Triple axel trailer, probably 35 feet or more long.
Maybe the sites are meant for shorter rigs but they try to cram a too large rig in a too small spot.

My truck wouldn't fit under that awning. With my rack on it, I would run into it.

I was trying to get into a very tight CG once and had to get my neighbor to roll his awning in just so I could back in to my spot...

YEP..........good way to get it torn up

Did you stop and talk with the folks that the awning could be torn/damaged/ripped from their RV or just post here?

Be a helpful neighbor and have a talk....they surely do not KNOW that it is an issue (for whatever reason----stupidity/just not thinking etc)

That one is a trick of the photo.. that rig is right at the end of the campsite at the road, but they’re within it.

We were headed to dinner reservations and no one was outside or I would have stopped to talk to them.

I haven’t been outside and/or down that way yet today.

And its black too so any late arrivals will have a harder time noticing it while searching for their site.

If you get rebuffed, report it to CG mgmt. They'll fix it.
