Have you considered widening your drive apron? Much much less expensive than replacing a septic tank.

Don't drive over it. My husband had to re-do our daughter's drain field because he damaged it from running the tractor over it when he mows.

X2. Besides, the grass is always greener over the septic tank!

I saw this demonstrated at an RV show this past winter. It may do the trick for you. It allows you to move your rig in very tight situations. Video | Purple Line

I am on public sewer but I discovered we had an old septic tank when it collasped leaving a large hole in my front lawn. My neighbors son fell into their septic tank when it collasped under him while mowing the lawn.

I would not park over it unless I was able to build some sort of bridge over the area. Something to spread out the weight load and protect the trailer if there is a collapse

I had the same problem at my house of getting camper in. I made the driveway wider so I didn't have to cut to short and I have a septic tank in the way, I would never drive over it

Around here code does not allow you to put any type of driveway or parking pad within 10 feet of the septic tank. It isn't just for fear of damage but the traffic vibration can cause the tank to shift throwing off the flow of effluent and causing a possible spill or backup into your house.

Don't do it, if you do it will cave in eventually

Could be a great spot for FULL hookup though.
