You have a long rear overhang there and that will keep the MH level while the boat is going down the ramp. On a very steep ramp you could get into problems hitting the drive unit on the ramp. Been there and done that in Chetek, WI on a very steep ramp.

I have a 32'class A, but cant see out the back window. I will be pulling a 20' Bayliner to the lake with us. Not sure how this is going to work out. Maybe just pay someone $5 at the lake to launch for me. I dont think I have ever seen anyone launch with a big motorhome.Don't want to have to take my truck as well and pay for gas for 2 vehicles.Any words of wisdom?
Simple, Carry a trailer dolly with you.
This one is rated for 600lbs and I have moved 'well over' the lbs rated with it. They make higher rated dolly's but they are bulkier and weigh more. The smaller ones can be carried inside your boat.
This dolly won't pull a boat over rough terrain, but the parking lots and the boat ramps are flat and the launch is slanted which works in your favor and this dolly works just fine for launching from a flat parking lot to the launch and into the water.
Please do not attempt this with anything larger than a canoe.
X2!!! I had visions of sliding down the launch ramp with my shoes smoking trying to keep the trailer from getting away
There are advantages to having a front receiver and using it to launch and retrieve a boat. It is easy to see how far to go into the water to float the boat and not go any farther than is absolutely necessary. Launching at coastal boat ramps and at lakes with low water levels it is not uncommon to run out of concrete for the trailer wheels before the boat is floating - rollers helps a lot as compared to bunks.
I always want to see when the boat lifts off the trailer and I can stop going into the water.
The advantage with a rear hitch entry is that the rear axles are less likely to be submerged in the water with a steep ramp which helps to keep the water out of the brakes and the wheel bearings.
