Will It Fit? | Salinas Monterey Hollister Game Truck Blog


Some of our most common requests are either to park on the customer’s driveway or to place our trailer in the backyard. Our general response is “we can try!”, but it helps to know what goes into our decision-making process.

On our FAQ page, you can see that we take the stance of “probably not”. Unless you have a big place, your driveway/backyard probably doesn’t have the minimum of 55 feet (roughly 3-4 car lengths) to accommodate both our Mobile Game Theater and the Ford F-250 that tows the trailer around.

Our other concern is the possibility of damaging your property and/or our vehicles. Our trailer often leaves unsightly tire marks on driveways. And often the driveway is at an incline of some sort, in which case the tail of the trailer might “bottom out”, thereby scraping the driveway or street.

With backyards, the issue we often encounter is whether or not the gate is wide enough. The width of the trailer is about 9 feet, and often the gate won’t accommodate the trailer. Additionally, the trailer is over 11 feet high, so the overhang from the roof comes into play as well.

We are usually happy to come to your place, upon written request (email is fine), to take a look before you book. Keep in mind that we’re usually very busy on weekends and can only do site visits during the week, and even then our available time is limited.

That said, we have had many successful parties with us in driveways or backyards! We want to accommodate our awesome customers whenever possible! So if parking on your property is your wish, we will do our best. Keep in mind that, as part of our terms and conditions that you agree to upon submitting your reservation, that we are not responsible for any damage resulting from your request to park on your property. Additionally, you will be asked to sign an additional waiver confirming this.

We strive to make your event as trouble-free as possible, but at the same time we take the safety and well-being of your (and our!) property quite seriously! Please contact us with any questions!
