Never have had a problem. When we are on the road, we call around noon and check with the parks ahead of us close to our route for a pull thru site. If we want somewhere around home for a weekend or week we make reservations way ahead of the dates usually at the state parks or the COE parks in the SouthEast. We tend to stay away from privately owned due to the lack of space to spread out.

I tow a 37' fiver and have a long bed dually TV. I have never had an issue find a place with or without reservations. I stay in both state and private campgrounds and rv parks. If you are unsure just call ahead. I just did a 5100 road trip from Fla to Col to Tx and home and did not have an issue with or without reservations.

Our fiver is 40' and have yet to have an issue getting a sight. We always call ahead to ensure they have a spot big enough for us. Biggest issue we have had is navigaging through some parks andlow tree branches. If we come across a low branch we just talk with the park manager or ranger and either they have trimmed it for us or let us trim it ourselves, we carry a pole saw with us. One thing I've noticed is when I say I have a 40' fiver they think it will fit in a 30' site and end up going back to the office getting another site. Enjoy your travels and always remember to look up.

We've found that making reservations nearly always jinxes the trip. We use online searches and the Trailer Life guide to find parks with sufficient parking, or we simply pull in and see what they have. It's working so far.

Never had a problem. May have to move the truck off to one side. Aren't many sites that aren't at least 35 feet long.
