We have been to many national and state parks with our 28ft international and never had problem.

In terms of length, if we were full-timing, we'd probably want a longer trailer, for storage space as much as anything, but we have happily camped for 6 weeks at a stretch in a 19-footer. Part of the reason for not going longer is that we do like to camp in more remote places in the western states and BC that either won't accommodate longer trailers, or where there are sites for longer trailers, but only a few of them per campground, so these tend to fill up first.

Any more, a lot of public campgrounds have a reservation system where you can go on-line, and see what types of sites/ RV length limits are available. Most RV parks advertise that they accommodate big rigs. If you've got your dream destinations worked out, it might be worth spending a little time on the Internet to see what trailer lengths they can handle.

I just checked the two major CGs in Glacier NP in Montana, for example, and found that they have 35' sites, but most were 27' or 24' limits. Natural Bridges NM in Utah has a 26' limit. Bryce Canyon NP "discourages" rigs more than 45' in total length in its Sunset CG. Priest Lake, a popular and beautiful state park in northern Idaho, theoretically accommodates longer rigs at Indian Creek, but the typical narrow, sharp right-angle back-in sites, are tricky for any size unit.

Of course, maybe you don't plan to visit these places, or would rather stay in a nearby RV park with full hook-ups if you do. So a lot depends on where you hope to camp, and your preferred type of destination.

We never encountered dragging issues with our 30' trailer. One issue we DID encounter was while in SE Ohio getting the trailer level front to rear. We were in a nicer campground that was in hilly terrain. The tongue had to be lowered completely, wheels blocked up @8-10" and we still had the rear jacks fully extended with many blocks underneath. Needless to say the wheels were WELL chocked.

I know many are concerned about the length pf the trailer and will it fit at state and federal campsites. Even though we have a 25 f AS I am also concerned about the size of the sight and what amenities it might have. So I always check with and/or the state site before reserving a site. They normally give you the size of the site and in many instances pictures of the site.
