Holy Crap, Tight Spot Batman!

Well... we put our camper into our "seasonal" spot over the weekend. I was concerned about fitment and lengthy they assigned us our spot last fall, but they didn't seem to think there was a problem and said I'd fit "no problem"

Here are a couple pictures where we'll be for the next 2 months

It doesn't look "too bad" until you know more about the layout of the campground where we're parked... there are two sites to the right of us and then a fence (which blocks the drive, read dead-end). With my truck all the way against the fence I barely could crank the wheel off enough to miss the tree backing in, but somehow managed to pull it off... not sure how we'll get out in August, but I do plan to bring a saw-zawl and wire cutters (bye bye fence) in case I get into too tight of a situation

Um. It looks like the tree parked your 5er for you. I now bestow upon you the medal of parking. It is the highest honor we give.

See, you fit. No problem, just like the campground mgr. told you. Like they are going to say your RV is too big and not get paid. Fitting is your problem, not theirs. Besides, the guy that was there before you had a bigger RV and he fit his, wait for it wait for it.......No problem.
