Wow. Very Steep

At some point when I store the Roo in the backyard, I'll have to back it down a hill, between two bushes and through a 9.5' fence opening. I thought I had it tough before looking at this video

Does this look extreme? Is it safe to back up a hill this steep? Mine is no where a steep as this.

That's doable with 4x4 and low range.

that's either in Australia or New Zealand, since the Jayco Expanda is a hybrid-style of TT sold by Jayco of Austrailia.

Now that all loose items are in the front of the camper they will be much easier to find!
That has got to be one HOT transmission.

I think I would spring for the cost of a storage lot.

I'd never buy a house with a driveway like that!

yeah. And at first I was thinking there is no way they are going to unhook and park it on that hill! Happy to see there was somewhat level ground up the mountain.

Seen worse, and not sure why a 4x4 is needed, since I bet that SUV was not a 4x4.
Would not want to have that driveway in a snowstorm.
