Ain't that the truth!!! And anybody giving advice or directions counts triple!

A few years ago I managed to back 40' up a steep rocky path, make a sharp turn, and run the trailer up onto blocks, all while avoiding trees close on both sides. Not a soul around.

With two RVs backed up behind me and people watching anxiously, it usually takes three tries just to make a straight shot back onto a paved pad!

My wife and I are still working on our communication skills when it comes to backing the trailer. Sometimes it's just easier to send the family off to explore and set a bright object where I want the rear corner of the trailer to land.

Agreed. After only a couple of trips trying to work together when backing the trailer, we quickly decided that I work best alone, and Teresa's only job is to yell if I'm about to hit something.
