2012 Rockwood parking question

I am creating a parking pad for my new 1640 8ft pop up and need to know the distance between the two tires. New member today and not sure where to post this question?

I think your best bet would be to pull out the measuring tape (or purchase one if you don't have one) and measure from the middle of one tire to the middle of the other tire. There's so many different models and options out there that you may not get an exact answer to that question. I am under the assumption that you or someone is looking for the width so that they can place the rock, ties, wood, or whatever in the right place so that the tires don't sit in the dirt/mud/water, etc. while it's parked in your new parking pad. I hope I read that correctly. Sounds like a great project, something I'll be doing myself sooner than later. Don't forget to come back and post some pictures up for us all to see.

Take care

Joe

Make it 8 feet wide then no concerns.

I am 'squeezing' into a 94inch wide spot w pavers and want not to waste cost. I do not have it yet, as it was due yesterday and still not here, but wanted to get the parking prepared before I brought it home. That's why I can't measure it on my own and that's why I bought the smallest size. Thanks for your reply! I am going to like this site:-)

I do not have the pop up yet, as it was due in yesterday, however wanted the two strip parking ready for it when it arrived. I guess I'll just have to wait and instead of "playing" when it gets here...I'll still be "working".

The specs on that trailer call for an overall width of 85", if it were me, I would measure 90 inches width and allow for a 12" (each side) path for the tires to follow, that would leave room for error as you will not always line it up exactly the same each time. Don't forget to place a paver for the front and rear stabilizer jacks, as well as the tongue jack. You don't want any of those sinking in mud/dirt
