oh, I forget you have a 34'....that is 34' bumper to tongue? This would leave you with total 6 feet....if equal 3 feet front and 3 feet back...seems like you are tighter than that in that photos

Most 34-footers are actually closer to being 35 feet, oddly enough... And yes, all AS measurements are bumper to tip of the hitch.

Water and sewer right by the parking pad are not necessarily essential, but it seems like it would be nice to have fresh water within the length of your white hose from the trailer's fill, and a sewer cleanout someplace convenient for dumping the tanks when you get home from a trip.

There is a dump where I store our trailers, but no convenient source of potable water. At the house I park at the curb so I need to stretch two white hoses out to fill the fresh tank.

Trust us. You will appreciate the "facilities" if you use your AS.

I have "dump station" at the storage yard. Inevitably you will find there will be times you don't want to use public restrooms. So, when you arrive home you can do whole cleanup. If you have to use at home for emergency you will appreciate. If you sell, it will make a value lift.

Just trust us on this. If my home it would be done....

Sewer drain would be ....50-70 feet from parking spot for airstream...not sure how that would work without some form of pump type of deal

Water - we will be doing a kitchen renovation in the next few months - I think during all that I could get my contractor to set up a water line for this purpose for nominal additional cost.

How would the home sewer dump go then - there is an outlet to the sewer pipe (presume for access - cleaning ) in the garage. Just not sure how to move easily waste 50 ish feet as such

For the purposes of dumping the tanks on the way home from a trip, anywhere on the path from the street to your storage pad that's close to the sewer cleanout would work. As long as you're not going to use the waste tanks while it's on the pad, it's not essential that it be right there.

One way that people drain their tanks to a distant cleanout is with a product called SewerSolution. Nearly everyone who posts about it says it's a great product, but I don't have any first-hand experience with it. There are lots of threads about it on AIRForums though.

I've seen sewer solution - guess I would wonder if it would work for 40-50 feet distance?

Probably a 4 foot elevation over that distance

I store the trailer in the back yard, but I have full hook ups in the front that I can not get to until I have a big Oak tree trimmed. I have a sewer clean out T, water spigot, and a 50 amp receptacle together in one place. That is the first phase. Trimming trees will be the second phase. Pouring concrete will be the third phase. Building a shelter will be the last phase.

That kind of grade will probably need a lift station./sump pump. Now, THAT discussion will turn to sewer talk real quick.
