How wide a gate is needed??

When I had my place built I made arrangements to to leave a a gated area next to my garage of 13ft... What I didn't take into consideration was the overhang and 7" gutters.. So I actually have 10' 4" opening to back my 30ft Georgetown in..... Is this doable... Or should I just pay to have the fenced moved??

Thoughts opinions would be appreciated...

You'll probably have about 14 inches on each side, it's doable but pretty tight IMO.

Like Clint Eastwood said......."do ya feel lucky punk?"

Typically today's motor homes are 8 feet 6 inches wide not including the mirrors.

It'll be snug for sure and there's no room for opening slides or the awning.

What were you planning on being able to do with the rig in this position?

It's just a place to park it when we're not using it..I can move the fence I have the land but it's going to cost about 1k ... Need to remove fence.. And bring in a bobcat to push back the jungle..lol ... then put fence back up..

Well, I would try it and see how it works. If you don't feel comfortable then you can always spend the money. JMHO

I am in a similar predicament. I have a Georgetown 351 I am picking up this week. My gate is 10 feet 6 inches. The brochure lists the unit at 101 inches (8feet 4 inches) so that leaves me about 13 inches on each side. I am sure the brochure does not include the mirror. Does anyone know how far they stick out and also are you able to fold them in at the base of the arm or just at the mirror?

In thinking the mirrors are higher than the average 6 ft fence

Try it, if you don't like it then ponyup.

Personally I would be happy as it is.

The are higher then 6ft when the hang down from a arm but the georgetowns the are upright. So I think they are shorter than 6ft.
