Mobile Trailer

This looks too good to be true. Especially for us backing challenged drivers. Any comments or experience with this?

https://www.foryouthsome.com/?route=...-fqkbKhoW9ORfM

here is the write-up:

Our first self-motorized and remote-controlled series of units, the RVR is designed to take the chore out of moving your trailer. With the RVR you can now move your trailer without bending over or the need to use your own drill. The RVR comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can give you up to 30 minutes of runtime. The included remote control allows you to not only move your trailer with just the push of a button, you can do it from up to 40 feet away. Now you can move your trailer into tight spaces without having to ask someone else to help you look around the corners. Heavy-duty caterpillar treads allow the RVR to go over different terrains including asphalt, gravel, grass, and dirt. The RVR also comes with 2 or 4 planetary gear motors that can drive both single and dual axle trailers.

The real one is $4,4000 (not $80)

The site that you linked to is 27 days old and owned by someone in China:
https://www.scamadviser.com/check-we...ryouthsome.com

Further checks show some complaints about the "parent company" which are no doubt the result of other scam sites using the company's name. In this complaint you will note that in the screenshot of the web site, the layout, fonts etc. are exactly the same, except its for a treadmill... its good reading: https://www.ripoffreport.com/reports...-i-got-1468868

Let us know how your order goes...

Yup.. just take it slow and try to have a good look out.. I once backed my Scamp 16 into a space at a campsite by myself and when I got out of the truck I found that I missed a metal pole by literally one inch. The camp gods were with me that day.

Gordon, I would just like to add to your instruction GET OUT AND LOOK.

I've seen too many "lookouts" who don't understand the difference between
2ft and 2yds or what has to transpire as the unit is backed into a site.

Talking backing the TT??

The skill is simple to learn and can be seen and watched on several online vids. There is a good one from LOLOHO on YouTube.

The best advice I saw was to pick up a pair of cheap 'walkie talkies'..we did that and the wife is the guide and I back the TT. This Spring she will learn the skill in our church parking lot, w some cheap cones...[paper cups with water in them] for guides. I have already helped several newbies 'back in' with my set of walkies this year alone.
The commands are simple: Passenger Side or Driver Side or Stop, etc "Passenger side" vs "Driver Side" refers to which direction I need to move the trailer while backing it in. Make small corrections and take it slow at first. Walkies are CHEAP and can be used while hiking, etc too.

I've heard about using walkie talkies. One guy and his wife had done and it stopped a lot of fighting. He would turn his off.

If you are going to get the walkies.. might as well be prepared and order one of these also...

My first overnight trip (March 2017) in our then-new 21' Escape was heading over to Sequim in the Olympic Peninsula area to take driving lessons from an instructor with RV Driving School. Two day lessons and I learned a LOT about how to handle the trailer, as well as backing it up. I did take a shorter refresher lesson last year on backing as so much information was thrown my way over those two days that the backing information didn't stick too well. I kept jack knifing the trailer.


I added some paw print/fish bones decals on the front of the trailer on either side (it doesn't have any from ETI and I added cat decals on it myself) that tell me when to stop cranking the trailer or else I'll jack knife it. Those decals have really helped.



As does the rear view camera on the trailer. Most of the time I'm taking it out by myself so I don't have anyone to tell me when to stop and all that.


I watched the backing videos online and they weren't much help. Taking those lessons, adding the decals and practicing in the mall parking lot has helped a lot. RV Driving School has instructors in various parts of the country that are independent contractors. Some teach just for motorhomes, while others do both those and trailers.

One disadvantage of devices like that is that they rob the rest of us of the entertainment of watching other people back their campers into tight parking spots.

Use the "Braille" method for backing your trailer.

Back till ya hear metal!
