TT at home to stay. Finally!!!

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/57572144/Backing%20RV%20In.mp4

Had some trees taken down which has finally afforded me enough room to bring our TT home to stay. We've hired a driveway company who is going to widen our driveway and make a TT parking space so we are parking it on the grass for the next couple of weeks until the work begins.

Congratulations! DW and I have been talking it over for years; moving it into the back yard would require the teardown of our standalone single car garage and the construction of a new, large shed for all of our stuff. We can't agree on the size of the shed, so we're at an impasse. The TT is in storage most of the time except for a few days before and after a trip, when we keep it in the driveway.

Ours was being parked at my brother's house an hour's drive away. Each trip had to take into account the 2+ hours to go pick it up and another 2+ hours at the end dropping it off. I can't thank him enough for allowing us to use his yard but the inconvenience factor was off the chart.

The side of my house where the camper is parked is a wee bit off level.

Pick the bigger size in your argument and triple it. That way it will last up to 3 years before you'll need a bigger one. Lol

We did an addition to our driveway and had it extended beside our attached garage. Our 32' fiver fits perfectly and always available anytime we want to take a fun trip. Cost was minimal but we had highway grade asphalt laid down, along with a 19" packed gravel base, to handle the weight. Originally it was for our 38' Class A.
