    Hey there,

    I'm just buying a 36 foot pace arrow to go camping with the family. Is this size too big to visit more secluded camp grounds like Big Sur and Yosemite?? Please respond as I'm new at this. Thanks for your help.

    WE HAVE JUST SOLD gulf STREAM 36 FT ( GREAT COACH)
    WE TRAVELED ALL 48 + ALASKA
    the new england area was the only place we had trouble,
    we came to a 10.6 ft high bridge, it only took 30 mins to go around.
    We had a 11 ft,10 inch height, the ferrys accepted 12 ft most places.
    we did get in one tight shopping center in az. a lot of trees along the driveways, which required backing up.
    IF YOUR NOT TOWING 36 ft is a great size.
    We have owned 8 motor homes from 23 ft to 40 ft, YOU HAVE THE BEST SIZE IN MY OPINION

    me personally i work at a rv dealer working on and around the lot and moving around motorhomes all day long i move anything from 28-42 foot long and the 40' diesels and the 32' gas are the easiest for me the 34,36,37' gas are a little too big for gas. but all i can say for a good rule of thumb is just learn how long it is before u go out on your first trip. i wasn't so fortunate with my bounder, first time i took it out was with it hooked up to my trailer which is 24' overall length so i had a length of 56' it was a very interesting first few hours. so practice local as much as possible
