Planning ahead is key, from gas station stops to roads in and out of camp grounds. I use Google Earth a lot, street view also helps.
In 7 years with mine I always seem to find a way to stick it in the space.
I even make it fit in what most places call a 36' spot and I'm 42' from cap to tailgate. There's a few camp grounds I'd like to go to up and down the coast of Ca. that are just to short, most State owned.
