I've noticed my father's road rage becomes active when driving his A due to people pulling out in front of him, etc. When this happens he tends to make hasty decisions. I'm picturing some people parked in a manner that is not "Big Rig" compatible. Add a little road rage and people will try risky stuff. Truck drivers do it all the time. I hear them complaining on the CB then they are driving aggressively and lose their common sense. I've driven his A a few times, but I have a 46' 5th wheel and I always over analyze gas stations, ramps, parking lots, etc. Sure I might fit, but if I don't... My suggestion is take you time, be smart and if you are not sure... just wait for a better option. You are supposed to be on vacation anyway. What is the rush?
