I agree many are designed for other than the eggs.
My last park camp, I had to go and buy a 30' extension
for my electric. Will probably be the first and last time
I need it, but I'm ready for just about any discrepancy now.
Extra adaptor, extensions, various lengths of water line, etc.

My electric comes out the nose, whereas I assumed the other
types have it coming out the rear from the way it was set up.

Then again, they may have just run a straight line and set every
thing up in that line. Even if the lots weren't exactly in a straight line.
It's only government work, what else would we

LOL with the electrical connection at the tongue of the trailer I can assure you that you will find you may be having to use that extension cord again - actually alot. Strange that a newish trailer manufacture would put power at the tongue of the trailer. Most campgrounds will have the connections toward the rear (often on the rear drivers side of the trailer) as most manufactures set up their trailers with all the electrical and sewer connections on the drivers side towards the rear these days. My older Scamp for some strange reason has the connections on the passenger side but Scamp eventually switching then over to the drivers side a number of years ago.

I just recently (last weekend!) camped in Oregon's newest full-hookup state park. The power tower and water were a good fifteen feet away from the sewer connection. I had to make a choice. I choose to hookup to power/water and when I got ready to leave, I dumped the blackwater tank... pulled forward four feet and dumped the graywater tank. If my tow was a 35' 5th wheel, I wouldn't have had any decisions. It took me a bit of time, but was happy with my choice of tow Time is cheap, especially when it only takes an extra 10 minutes or so. YMMV
