A $15 fix...

For $15 you should be able to remove the foot on your tougue jack replace it with a wheel and effortlessly move that trailer around with one hand. This will not help you in backing into a campsite but putting it back in the garage in seconds. My wife rolls it around like a little wagon.

I find the real trick to backing a trailer is to not let your brain get in the way.

Once I was having trouble backing in a campground; tight corner, big drop, poor design. A next door neighbor came to help. He said he would rather pack a 30 footer than a 13.

The comment of only going one way makes me wonder about the axle alignment. Could it be out of alignment?

Nah, it's me. I just watched my daughter back that little sucker into my garage. Sigh, time to face the music......hitch it up and go find an empty parking lot.

Really appreciated all the comments!
