That's bizarre, given that there is no combination of tug and trailer which is only 20 feet long in total, and no current motorhome only 20 feet long. I wonder who they expect to use such a site? Maybe some people are okay with leaving the tug in the remote lot.

It looks like Bob's trailer is not quite level (somewhat nose-up) when towing.

Mine sits high till disconnected and leveled, not enough to bother you when sleeping, just all the doors swing open or closed. Meant to adjust the pinbox some but haven't gotten to it.
