In a 38' DP and while we fit I wouldn't do it with anything beyond 40' because you're limited to the first 6 angled parallel spaces as you enter. Lines are painted indicating your space size, and if you are over then you're in the travelled portion of the roadway.
Worse yet is the Park allows those who sleep in their cars to use a RV space, and it goes down hill from there with smaller trailers occasionally taking up larger spaces.
We arrived on a Tuesday at 2 and there was 1 space left, yet on other days, including the weekend where if you got there say before noon there were more spaces available.
Great jump off point to get a lot of hiking in.

Good Place With Some Issues
Water, trash, wide asphalt parking in a national park at the base of a mountain range. Signs say you can dispose of RV water wastes in the restrooms. Widely varying flora and pleasant views, I found it very relaxing here. Also, I have 52' of truck and TT and had zero issues maneuvering.
With that said, this park is tens of miles of desert from anywhere. No reservations available for tent or RV sites so you risk driving here only to have to leave again if full. There's also only a few RV spaces, why does a US national park have very limited & unreservable RV sites, especially when theres no other camping options nearby? Do they want this park to be visited?? Add to this no dump station which is unheard of for a NP with camping... I just don't get the decisions made by whomever designed this place.
If they tripled the RV spots, added a dump station and allowed for at least some reservations the park would be visited much more and still be quiet.

No Services & tough for large Rigs.
just an asphalt parking lot for RVs with no services. We noticed large RVs and ones with dingys had an exceptionally tough time turning around.

Wanted to add that it's only $8 to dry camp in the parking lot. It's car camping at its best because of the trails! Close to Carlsbad. Try Bottomless Lakes just east of Roswell, NM after camping here.
