Crusader 335BHS Actual Length

Hey everyone,

Current TT owner looking at the Crusader 335BHS 5th. Would someone be so be able to verify the exact the length of the trailer including the spare tire on the bumper for me please? It would be greatly appreciated.

The online specs indicate that the 335BHS is 37' 9". My driveway length is 38' 5" . This leaves me an 8" buffer, of which I would like to leave 6" gap between the back of the trailer and the garage.

So as you can see I am cutting it very close to fitting it in my driveway without overhanging the sidewalk.

I measured my current 292 and it should actually be called a 298. LoL

from the end of the pinbox (which is even with the front of the trailer)
to the back bumper is 38'. Add 1 foot for spare tire for a total of 39'.
if you move the spare you'll be set.

Awesome,

Thank you very much, I really appreciate it. It'll be cutting it close for sure.

I'll have to really check my measurements.


Cheers

i scrubed it down with simple green, left it outside for a couple weeks, then put it under the bed with no odor. I did put a piece of cardboard down first, and I put the cover back on it..
