As you gain experience with towing, you will quickly develop your "eye" for saying......"yeah, I can make that turn."
You do have to change your perspective for gas stations, restaurants and any other place you are going to pull in and park when you are 50 feet long!!! Planning ahead is a requirement.
Heck, the first time I pulled in to a grocery store with our first trip with a TT, I thought I had picked out a great parking spot, but did not pay attention to the trees in the median. Yup, a 16 foot scratch right down the side/top of our brand new TT....to answer your question though -- yup, truck stops are a great place to get gas and have LOTS of room.....just don't use the green hose if you are a gasser!!!!!
