Default trailer question

I need to buy a travel trailer, and thinking about using it at comps to. I am leaning towards one that is only 20 feet from tongue to bumper, and one that is 21.6 from tip to tip, doesn't most contests have the slots at 20 feet? or can I get by the slightly bigger one?

Thanks everyone.

Michael

we are about 26' long total, and we have never had a problem getting into a contest. Just let them know how much space you need ahead of time. You will probably have to pay more though.

mine is 42 foot from end to end you pay extra for the space
but when it raining and cold it is worth it in gold

i sleep good and can cook better because i an rested
my last one was 20 - 8 and it would fit in most places

go for it you will love it

Don't forget the extra footage you may need if you want to keep the ramp door down

With the truck you have, you need at least a 28 footer. Anything less is child's play.

the very small office



small but it works sink, counter, and the "secret" bbq weapon




this converts to a really large sleeping area.

I have not figured out how to do more than one post, but,,,,It is not a toy hauler, I really wanted one, but does not work out for me,,,(they are really past that area ) I do have a 60 ft. place to park stuff at and I do have a 40' pusher,('06 4074 tuscany, in the shop to get repainted, damage from a semi tire on the road) and I do know life is easier if I stayed in that 20' area. so its a win/win for me.

I do not want to say how much, but it's under $11,000,,,,at the KC r.v show

Sorry man, I shouldn't have put you on the spot. I didn't think about it before I asked. I am just trying to figure out how much I can get for my $$$ I appreciate the estimate.
