I park a 19' in a 16 X 24 garage that has a 12' door. It is a hard 90 degree turn in from our driveway. When we built the garage I was really worried it was to tight. It was a little stressful the first few times with the wife watching. Now that I know where the trailer has to be I can do it with my eyes closed. Will not really but I can do without the wife watching using just the driver side mirror because of the truck being kicked so hard. I know how much to keep it off the wall I can see and that if it's where it should be on the side I can see that there is plenty of room on the side I can't see. I lay a 4X4 on the floor so I don't back up to far. Its much easier to back it to the drivers side than the passengers side because you can also turn around and see the driver side without looking in a mirror.

It fit in the larger parking area with no problems on the first try. From my experience backing it in twice now I think it should also fit in the smaller future parking area as well. Thanks everyone for your help!
