We intend to change our MoHo to a fixed bed but it will be longer than our existing AT Tracker which we store on a level pitch. However, the upgrade won't fit on the same space and I would like to know from you technical experts out there if parking it on the space in the picture will cause any structural damage. image.jpg
(Ignore the water, it's not a rad leak I just opened the fresh water tap to drain)

I park on my drive which is a quite steep slope and it has never caused any problems in 14 years and 2 different vans.

laterally it is not good, and you risk getting a permanent lilt. Been there, done that.
Level it as best you can. Fore and aft differences are OK.

Since 2012 but longer in my dreams
Wouldn't be too big a job to level up your drive ,might be worth getting a couple of quotes!

Why not just make a couple of levelling ramps to put it on ... not the plastic things you use when out and about, but some made of wide timber so your tyres sit on it as if they were on tarmac.
