I prefer pull through, but at the end of the day, some of the best camp sites I’ve been in were jack knife back up. It’s just a little extra hassle, but once settled in who cares.

For a quick overnite a pull through is nice. Destination I prefer a back in.

Just wanted to put this out there out of curiosity:

Pull Through and back in sites each have their own advantage/disadvantages. I tend to like the back in sites, as I feel they are more secluded on 3 sides. Which type of site do you prefer and why?


1. if you are traveling to a destination and plan on staying overnight at a RV park along the way, then my choice is a pull through site. Hooking and unhooking a trailer or 5th. wheel takes extra time and not needed unless there is a reason. Generally a spoter to help you go into a Pill Through site is not as critical.

2. Back in sites can be more more of a challenge if there are trees, bushes close to the edge of the rv site or over head tree limbs that could possibly hit the top of your RV. The angle you have to turn your RV as you are backing up into the site can also be a challenge. It is always safer to have spotter to help you back into to a site.

I recommend stopping at the registration station and then walk to your site to make sure it fits your RV.

back in. the more privet the better, and if its pull through at least 2 of the sides have no bush to isolate them. also backing up isn't that hard.

side note I use the truck to block off the site from the road once unhooked.


If it moves and it shouldn't..... duct tape
if it doesn't move and it should.....WD40
if all else fails .....BFH

It all depends on the park. No preference otherwise.

One of my favorites sites to camp has 2 driveways and is 20 feet from the water. To have my TT face the water i drive in at a 45 degree angle and just before I hit the firepit I crank it hard and aim for the other driveway.
I am usually unhitching with the truck jack knifed. And then out I go.

Now....not your typical drive through and good luck doing it if you are longer than my 22' TT [emoticon]


But what a view.

I prefer pull throughs since I'd rather pull my trailer than back it up. I will do either of course.

But rarely do I go to a camp site just to enjoy my surrounds and enjoy nature and sit around a campfire.

Most of the time we are either following our football team, visiting national parks to view wildlife or the scenery, or visiting relatives. In all those cases, the campsite doesn't mean a lot to us. What means something is how close the campground is to the activity we're pursuing.
