Well, this being an election year, I first cringed at the subject title!!

However, I opt for the most yard in front of the door so there is plenty of space for our chairs and the table under the awning. I also pay attention to where the fire pit is so the awning is away from that.

Next is the hookups especially the sewer one. I have had to adjust to get the height needed to be sloped into the sewer connection.

Making sure the slide does not hit anything is another consideration.

Then there is the location of the neighbors........

Great point. I always do that too.

Not much choice

We frequent Ohio State Parks, and the pads are so narrow, I only have 1' on each side to spare - go for the middle.

I do the same as Semperfi24.

We get as far to the utility side as possible (allowing for slide). The bigger the area we're planning on 'living' in with 2 dogs, fire ring, picnic table, grill, chairs, etc. the better.

I've got 3' slides so that wouldn't work for me.

In many campgrounds that we've been at, the drive for the camper may be a bit higher than the rest of the site. If it's uneven that way, I'll park closer to the site side. Otherwise, I prefer to park further over on the driver side with enough room on the back to comfortably hook up and move around the slideout.

I prefer to be closer to the driver's side edge of possible to give myself more room on the door side.
