Ouch. Sorry, I can't help. My all molded towable is only 16 feet long from tongue to bumper! You might want to check on a forum more dedicated to your type of trailer since we're all a bunch of little ones here. I respectfully suggest: iRV2 Forum | - RV Forum Community and RV News and/or the Open Road forums at RV.net

Best of luck!

Donna will be picking up her new Escape 5th wheel in the spring and it will be one of the largest units on our forum at almost 20'

Ian, those folks with the 25' all molded Bigfoot trailers may take exception to your statement. AND those owning a Bigfoot Silver Cloud (be still my heart).. But yeah, excited for June!

So true Donna, I forgot all about the Bigfoot's
My apologies to these highly respected molded trailers and their owners
