When booking an RV spot to use with a travel trailer, do we reserve a spot that is big enough for both the truck and trailer, or just the trailer length?

Truck and trailer would be best if you are towing a vehicle or hauling a trailer. The trailer length spots are usually for actual RV's. Most spots provide room for your to park your vehicle as well as set up your trailer though so I wouldn't worry too much if you find a spot that is trailer only. Happy Camping!
We just give the length of our RV and have plenty of room for the RV and the truck (if we chose to, we could even leave the truck hooked up to the hitch) at any campground we've been to.
Most camp sites that you can reserve online will tell you the length. For instance, our camper is 33 foot, and I allow 20 for our truck. So I check that the site has a minimum of 53 feet. Since we carry some equipment, such as our bikes, in the truck, I want the truck with us.
