Hi everyone, I am very new to this group! We are looking to purchase a Jayco 20.64-1 as an upgrade to our jayco Expanda 17.56 but I am concerned about being able to fit it onto most sites. Has anyone had trouble with this? I have tried to look at the specifications but its a bit tricky to find all of the /open measurements'. Any advice is very much appreciated.

I haven't had any problems fitting on any sight. The slide out isn't really an issue. As long as you tell the caravan park you have 9 meters with a slide out, you shouldn't have any problems. There are bigger caravans than ours out there.

Most sites will fit up to a 22 foot van no worries. But You'll find the drawbar will be right at the roads edge.
I think where you'll find the biggest discrepancies will be in the width of sites more so than the length.

we always tell them the size of the van if we are booking ahead.
if i was told to park outside i would go else where

Ive done same thing looking into the 20s an extended bar model is 9.4 meters from tow hitch to bed end folded down
And a none extended draw bar is 8.8 meters to the folded down bed end measured a few i stand by my numbers
We have decided if eva on smaller sites with 2 kids will keep bed end up and use both bunks hope that helps
