Rear overhang (ROH) dimension needed

Hello,

We are planning to purchase a late model Sprinter 24' Interstate and am laying out a parking pad alongside the house. Does anyone know the distance between the rear axle (contact point of the dual rear tires) to the trailer hitch cover.

My estimated values-

Front overhang = 3.7 feet
Wheelbase = 14.1 feet
ROH (rear overhang) = 6.7 feet

Total length=24.5 feet

Thanks much.

Measurements look good, only one that looks a bit off on my quick tape measurement would be the front overhang looks more like 3.5’. I would suggest leaving plenty of space at the rear for opening the doors, standing and loading and unloading.

That PDF is for a regular length Sprinter 170" wb. All late model Interstates are built on the extended length Sprinter 170" wb models are depicted in the attached file.

Thanks Mike for the correction. I plucked my diagram from an old thread in this forum and didn't notice it was for the non extended 170!

For all newbies, check out the departure angle of our interstates rear end it's just 10.6 degrees....& less if you add a bike rack!

Going to check that too. Wonder if it reduces even further for the 170 due to generator enclosure ?

In my experiences with ours, the tail end will bottom out entering/exiting the slopes of some entrance/driveways. I never had any issues with the generator doing that.
