Rpod length?

Hi everyone! We just purchased a new 2018 rpod 189 which we have not yet picked up. We are trying to prepare a backyard site to store it in compliance with our city codes. I have not been able to find anywhere what the actual full length of the 189 is. All the specifications from the dealer site and Forest River talk about 20 ft 4 in. I know this may be a very newbie question, but does that length include the tongue? Or is that only the length of the actual trailer? I just want to make sure we prepare a pad site correctly. If anyone could answer that question it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. The exterior length listed is from bumper to coupler. Example my rig a 26'FKWS exterior length listed is actually 29'11"

Brochure/Website length numbers are one of the few FR specs that are accurate.
It includes the tongue. It's coupler to bumper.
