Hi Tom, We're excited, signed off on our build sheet and will be picking up in May.
As we plan our trip, we're looking at camp sites. I know the trailer is a bit under 22' long. Have you ever measured the full length when hitched up to your Ranger? Thanks!

Hi, I have measured before, but don't remember the number. The trailer is stored in the barn and the truck is outside. Right now we have rain and extreme wind. Whenever it abates I will measure individually and let you know.

Thanks! Rough estimate is probably fine. Just want to make sure what size lots we can fit into, for ferries, etc.

AuthorSP, I measured both truck and trailer as if they were hitched up, about 35'. Seems a good bit less the way it handles!
