5.0 TA length from bumper to rear of trailer?

Hi,
I'm reserving campsites, and I don't have our trailer yet. What is the length from the bumper of the tow vehicle to the rear bumper of the trailer? I have a 6ft bed, thanks

I think the trailer alone is 21 feet.

Ya pretty much wondering how much of the 5th wheel length is over the bed. Some of these campsites are very strict on length, such as Yellowstone.

36' for my 5.0 TA hitched to 2016 F150 Supercab, 6.5 bed. When I look for sites I look for ones that'll fit 21 foot trailer not combined length.

5TA /Toyota Tundra length

BC Ferries just measured my 2016 5TA and my Toyota Tundra 6.5 bed at 35 feet when calculating my fare.

Ya I usually do too but reservations at Yellowstone are asking to put total length specifically. Thanks for the info.

My 6.5' bed truck (2017 F-150 Supercrew) and my 2017 5.0 TA (with the Andersen hitch adapter turned "backwards" - the "normal" position for 5.0 TAs) is a little over 35'. Unfortunately, I don't have the exact number since it is in the truck and I'm too far away to conveniently check it.

When I'm looking for campsites online, or by phone, I say my trailer is 20'. This often gives me more choice in campsites and I've never had any trouble getting into any of those campsites with my 21' trailer. YMMV

Maybe that's because some of their access roads have really tight turns? In Acadia Maine they have restrictions on vehicle length and height because of switchbacks and some low tressels.

At Yellowstone I only got 35' or bigger, at none of them was the length of my rig checked. At Canyon the truck just fit backed into a 35'er with the camper disconnected, the other 2 campground sites were even bigger. I did see a few of the huge rigs, you know, with a 40' fifth wheel or some such, jammed into whatever was available. I saw no one forced to move cause they were too long.

FWIW, we looked at a few of the small campgrounds in the central area of the park that are first come first serve. I only saw a couple sites in each that I thought my rig would fit in, and they were all taken of course. I'm glad I had made reservations.
