We purchased our Rockwood Roo 21SS in December of 2015. We picked it up from the dealer this past March. I knew that our parking space next to our garage was not going to be wide enough to fit the TT into and would have to be made wider. I first dug new holes to transplant 8 arborvitaes that I had planted 2 years earlier and 1 new one. I dug around each arborvitae and used an engine hoist to lift them up and then rolled it ahead 3 feet and set them in their new location. I laid out my driveway expansion and dug it out to a depth of 8 inches by hand. I estimated I moved about 8 yard of dirt and hauled it to my back yard with a wheelbarrow! Before I put in the forms I wanted to make sure that I made it large enough to be able to back the TT into the space and not have to drive off into the grass with my truck. I went to a large parking lot and laid out with sidewalk chalk the garage and the new driveway. I then with the help of DW I backed into the new area to see if I could stay inside my chalk lines. It was determined that I needed it to be just a bit wider, so I could cut the trailer into it parking spot and keep the front truck tires on the driveway. Went home and made the minor adjustments. I then put the forms in place. Had 4.5 yards of ¾ inch TB (traffic bond) gravel delivered? Spread it to a depth of 4 inches and compacted it. Concrete was poured 2.5 weeks ago and we parked the TT in its new parking spot when we returned home from a camping trip last Monday! See photos of project!!!
