If the owner didn't have those numbers or a spotter to watch for him,then he might be taking a "chance".

With a combo that long and tall...why not use the convenience of a big rig truck plaza that simplifies the process?!...why over complicate an already thought out function

Its a toy hauler, and they don't sell gas at the diesel islands. Have to keep the toys fed somehow. Any ideas how much gas they hold anybody?

Toy haulers don't hold gas!
Didn't the Raptor trailer company biff it because they were over-length and weight?
I saw one on our trip and it was HUGE.

Reminds me of a "close call" picture posted here a year or so ago. I think the poster had to actually navigate around lights to clear.

looks like me last summer, had the wife climb the ladder and give me a look, cleared by 2 inches...it was my fault, traveling back roads, needed fuel before we got on the interstate and the only station we saw that had diesel was under the canopy and was it ever tight and super busy with other traffic, now if I get fuel under the canopy it usually is 18 feet high and just for big rigs

Yes that was Nigels that had to navigate around the lights in the canopy. Here's the link to that post.

Probably a couple of camp chairs and the kids bikes!
