I stand corrected.

Not necessarily corrected mtnguy. I was backing up, in too sharp a turn, and going uphill. There is also a funny little rise as you go over the sidewalk that seems peculiar to this driveway. I too have never touched on a forward turning situation. Old Guys

Ah, backing up is an entirely different ballgame. Thanks for the update.

Firstly, Welcome to the forums. When we were looking to upgrade a couple of years ago, The DW and I were walking thru a campground and we noticed 2 V nose trailers with the front corners dented in from what I assume was turning too short. We purchased a "normal" tt after that walk around.
Just my thoughts.
