Long trailers and available sites

Purchasing a TT next year and I'm a little concerned about setting up in decent sites. We had a pop up over the last 10 years and we could obviously get into some of the nicest sites available. My wife keeps telling me that the last thing she will do (and I agree) is park the rig in an open field. It looks like a TT between 30-35 feet is in the plans and I know several camp grounds are going to be a no go. Many places advertise that the sites will accomodate longer trailers, but I know that you would only be able to get into many indicated sites after a ridiculous amount of time and maneuvering.

Is there a reliable publication or internet site that gets it right about trailers fitting into sites properly without cramping or decent pull through sites? Not much fun driving many hours to a selected location only to have a major headache at the other end before you even set up.

Same here for my 34' FW - however we always call ahead plus the clubs that we belong to have our profile (including RV lenght) in our file.

But No never a problem.

Most CG will ask for length and slides, you really need to invest in a CG directory, therin they provide site size, hookups etc Helps you plan ahead.

If the campgrounds that you want to go to don't allow a 30-35 ft. TT then you need to get one that fits, or explore some new campgrounds. We had a 30 ft TT & never had a problem finding a camp site. As suggested, a directory would help too.

Trailer Life and Woodall's are the two best campground directories.

Several online sites to use. This is just a sample of sites I use. Reserve America handles several of the state and national parks. We have a 35' and have had only a few issues in the camps. Worst was in Flagstaff KOA, place was packed and lots of huge pines. The reviews warned me, but I did not pay attention. If we have concerns we call ahead to be sure. You can always walk to the site to confirm before driving into the campground.
