In your defense, there sure isn't much wiggle room in those parking spots!

EdJunior posted some pictures a while back of him backing his 5th wheel into his driveway......it was some tight quarters. Since then, I believe he has widened the driveway some....that rascal.

Yeah, and I can't find my backing in the driveway post anywhere. I'll get another pic up later. I did widen my driveway, but I haven't gotten the camper back there yet. I have to still do some tree trimming. And it's just plain been too hot for it. And after backing my boat down the crushed rock part I did, I know I'm going to have to widen that also. But it will all come.

I can't wait to see the youtube (blocked from this location). It's good to see you can take it all in stride ependydad. Otherwise it just plain wouldn't be worth the hassle, would it!??!

(cough) For those talking about the tight spot.. I have to say, I was lucky and the neighbor on the inner-corner of the turn was not there. I've already emailed a nice note to the storage lot facility manager thanking her for the gift!

I have been practicing inside my storage lot doing the same thing with my 12 foot pop-up, and I thought that was tricky! You should be commended for doing as well as you did with that big unit.

I also pull single and double jet ski trailers. The smaller jet ski trailer is a pain. At the boat launch, you have 3 invisible lanes that boaters are trying to reverse in which makes it difficult.

I noticed some beach spots for RV are so tight from the pictures. Has anybody ever tried reversing into a parking spot at the beach?

Heh...I just watched the video. It looked a bit bigger when you first started, but wow...it cramped right up. Man, good job!
