829fkss

I am finally picking mine up in May!! I need to prepare my pad in the back yard. Can someone tell me the distance between the rear bumper of the trailer, and the back tire of the trailer? I will have some overhang off of my pad, just wondering how much!! Thanks!

I have an 8314ss Rockwood o6 and it is approx 34' and I have 9' from the back of the back tire to the bumper. The 8296ss is approx 31.5 long so it may be around the same....8 to 9' over hang.
