Hello, you are welcome to be in the vehicle when the valet driver goes into the parking lot, but due to our insurance policy only the valet driver can actually drive the car into the lot. The 2 lots we have do have plenty of space for the truck camper and the drivers we have are very experienced in parking all types of vehicles.
