Rubber Hitch!

Do they make (Sliding Hitches) for pull trailers? If so maybe this person would NOT have (Caved the truck bed in ,punctured the rear tire,bent the tounge of the trailer,and felt dumb)? Youroo!!

Youroo, are you sure that's what happened in the pic?

The damage/scratches on the trucks quarter panel seem to be too high for the trailer to have caused, and the difference would been even higher once you factor in the tire being aired up on the truck.

But if this happened to you, then you would know. It may be time to fess up. LOL

I almost did that with our little garden trailer. Small trailers are much more difficult to control in reverse, but I stopped paying attention for a second and the thing had whipped around almost to the truck.

Did he forget to have someone hold his beer while backing up?

Went back for your camera? Isn't that like seeing a house fire and going back to get the marshmallows? Lol

When I was a kid, my grandparents would take us camping a lot, they had a Coleman pop up. My grandfather couldn't back into a site to save his life. They would make me do it. Too young to drive but I could back that thing like a champ.

I have a 10' utility trailer, much like the one in the picture, (and NO, it wasn't me ) and I can't back it worth a hoot. Now put a 42' 5er behind me and no problem.

The smaller and shorter the wheel base the harder they are to back up for sure. Still I would have stopped and maybe the pop of my tire.... OR MAYBE MY FENDER CAVING IN!!!!! OUCH!
