Our XLR is about 42' long by itself. Add an 8' door and 4 door cab on the TV and we would need about 60'+. We usually unload the bikes before pulling into spot. Disconnect TV and find someplace for it to go. Then relax. When we went to the KOA on the Quiet Side of the Smokeys (darn old age, can't remember the town name) I told them how long the camper was and they didn't believe me. Until we pulled in. Or was that in Branson? Anyway, doesn't matter where. I would have liked to have a back deck, but then I don't think we would find very many places to be able to use it.

We also unload our motorcycles before we set up camp. I try to find a wide spot in the road or a parking lot to do the unloading and loading. After many trips, we can get in done in less than 5 minutes. Our toy hauler has a pull down screen for the back but we almost never use it. The ramp down requires a very long site ( for truck, trailer, and door 60') and if it rains or gets cold during the night you have to go outside to close the door. We prefer finding a more private or secluded site so unloading first makes it easier.

I have not run into problems yet getting bike in and out. I usually unload and load on campground road and then back in. Most of the spot have had room for me to open back door to get air through screen.
