I saw Ford's new "Pro-Trailer Backup Assist" in action at a trade show in Georgia last Fall. Once you get it calibrated to a small black and white checkered sticker you adhere to the tongue of the trailer (it can store calibration information for up to 10 different trailers), you just let go of the steering wheel, look at the digital display on the dash, and twist a knob on the dash to use the truck's electronic steering mechanism to back the camper, boat, utility trailer, boat, etc. Pretty insane. I wanted to do a test drive to try it out, but the wait line was a mile long. Anyone out there have any real world experience with it?
