Arbor pruning to make room for small RV

I am looking to put a small RV in the space next to my driveway. I'v attached pictures. I have an arbor that I share with my neighbor and his side is in much better shape probably because he has sprinklers on his side and I have no water source on mine.
I need to cut up and back about 3 feet in order to fit the RV and I'm wondering if this is possible without harming the arbor and what is the best way to do it.

Welcome to the forums.

Not the garden pro but I've seen that problem before.
My neighbor had slightly more room for his big rig but needed to chop heavy.
He was constantly trimming the little that was left.
His neighbor wasn't very happy.

What do you need..... right to the trunk ?
There is no easy way to what you want to do.

In my personal experience, many of neighbors are not happy RV parked close to next-door's neighbor's driveway. Some are very picky. Also, next door neighbor does not like neighbor trimming and cutting limbs and branches.
One of the neighbors is nice enough to grow a tree, because the next neighbor also needs a shade to relax and chat.
Probably, you need to judge what type of folks the next neighbor is? Nice or picky.
It'll be nice if you'd talk whether the neighbor agrees with your planned RV-park with Arbur-cutting which next-door neighbor might not really happy to see.
