We've been using the "Easy Hitch" since we first got our 19 foot Scamp. The wife has the process "nailed". Hooking up is relatively easy and painless!

I use the tennis balls, the easy hitch (Coupler Connect): http://www.durasafelocks.com/product...ail-a-cc1.html, and a back up camera we got at Costco. A pair of dog crates blocks my view out the back window, so the camera was installed prior to purchasing a TT.

I agree, as always, with Donna D.: I can hitch up better & faster by myself than with other helpers.

I also use the G.O.A.L. method when I'm within a couple of feet from the trailer's tongue. I want to know just how far away I am so that I don't dent anything. I want that soft "landing"!

My problem is backing the trailer into my driveway upon returning from my adventures. I've adopted some ideas I found on this forum. But this sometimes becomes a hit or miss operation. My husband is usually on hand to "help", but we're still working on our commincation skills.

You're right- this thing totally works.
Cabela's also sells them.

Here's a link for the backup camera we bought a Costco: Costco - Backup Car Camera System by Rear View Safety

Costco's price is $79.99! We had an Auto Stereo Sound specialist install it permanently on our dashboard for less than $60. This was over 5 years ago and still works great, so I can attest that it is a quality product.

Harbor Freight sells the magnetic Tennis Balls for $19.99, but regularly offers coupon sales on its web site which brings the price down to $9.99!
