2306 Overall Length

Good morning. My first post here is a boring one..... Should be an easy answer to my question for any 2306 owners.

The 2306 is listed at a length of 23'-7". Is that the overall bumper-to-hitch length?

This model fits our needs perfectly. I don't want to be surprised that it doesn't fit in our driveway just when I get serious about buying it.....

Thanks in advance.

I dont own one but almost bought one a few years ago.... I remember it being about 24' tip to end... Others who own can confirm this.

I think the figures posted by FR are pretty darn close, but remember that is probably without options. With the Mini-Lites, a spare tire "carrier and cover" is included with Convenience Package A. If the carrier is mounted on the bumper, then you will need to add some to the overall measurement.

The 2306 model is in reference to the length of the trl body itself, the actural overall length will be just under 30'. My 2604 measures 26'4" on the body and about 30' bumper to hitch.

Sorry but this isn't correct. The trailer body itself on my 2306 measures 19'11". The 23' 7" referenced in the original post is from the tip of the tongue to the end of the bumper. The murphy bed system is great on this model. It's got separate bunks, dinette, couch, queen bed...very practical design.

Oh and welcome to the forum and have fun!

It might be best if you double checked the measurements in person. Hopefully you can locate a unit close to you to check out. The reason I say this is that it not uncommon to get various answers.

Also, you might have already checked but some cities, like mine, have restrictions on RVs being parked in the driveway. While my unit is under the weight limit and can be parked in the driveway it still needs to be back from the street 9 feet which includes the tongue frame.

Different model, 17BH, but spec says 22'-2" and it's 24' from spare to front of hitch. 22-2 is the box according to them but that doesn't measure out either. I used the trusty measuring tape.
