Of course she is looking for help, this coming in on an issue I feel would not benefit her in the least. I have given hands on training to many folks, the majority being in work conditions where safety is a major concern. I am a big advocate of inexperienced tow folks going for professional training. Even short courses really help.
And I have done this before, when trying to place tow behind compressors and generators inside and in a tight spot on jobsites. They are extremely narrow with real short wheel bases, so seeing them in the mirrors is impossible.
Still, I maintain it is not a good idea for a trailer 7-8' wide where you can't see down the sides nor over the top.
