How long is yours?

Hi, How long is your's? Just curious how long is your set up. My Navigator is 17' long, My Safari is 25' 11'' rounded up 26' long and I'll guesstimate about 1' for the hitch. My set up is real close to 44' long.
How long is the shortest Bambi & tow vehicle? And how long is that 34'er with that crew cab, long bed, H.A. hitch, whatever that thing is you have hanging on the front end of your tow vehicle, and whatever have attached to the back bumper of your trailer.
How long is mine? Forty four feet.

With my CC Dually Long bed and a 31' Sovereign I am hitting around 54' total length, and it takes 40 acres to turn around in

Ford f-250 crew cab w/ full 8' bed, Sovereign 31' I'm about 54 feet.
The Wal-Mart parking lot isn't big enough for a U-turn.

Give me 40 acres, and I'll turn this rig around...

48', 21 for the truck, and 27 for the Overlander.

Hi Bob--Good question! Don't know how long my '27 Overlander is hooked up to my Suburban (will measure next time I hook up), but do know I can make a U-turn on a normal 2-lane road.--Frank S

Starting from back to front: Airstream 31, receiver 1, Suburban 18.5, front mounted bike rack 2.5 = 53 feet. Yikes! It doesn't seem that long when I'm driving

I posted this a couple of months ago...

Rig: F-250 4X4 and 1999 30' Excella WB - overall length 53 feet, with a Blue Ox WD hitch.

Our inside turn radius is 57 feet and the trailer tracks about six feet inside the truck at the bottom of the U-turn. I could have turned a little bit tighter, but didn't want to stress things - maybe I could have made the U-turn in 50 feet?

This one is just to put a data point out there for those who might have a similar rig (we have to build a driveway up a hill with multiple switch-backs, and we need to know the turn radius).

We took our rig to the local high-school parking lot and lined it up on one of the parking stripes. I marked the left truck and trailer tire positions with chalk, then began a left U-turn, turning hard but not absolute maximum.

When the truck was at the bottom of the U, I marked the front truck tire position. When the trailer tires passed the bottom of the U, I also marked their positions.

The measurements above are on the 'inside' of the rig during the turn. To get parallel to our original position, we had to go a little further to straighten out (+20 feet), but were able to use the parking stripes to measure directly across the top of the U.

We'll plan for 60' turn radius. Guess what... that's what the fire department has as a building code!
