Backing in to tight spots (pics)

Note by site team: The following posts have been moved to their own thread so as to not further hijack the thread they were originally posted in



I find it absolutely amazing how many can't seem to back up a trailer by themselves.

I've been doing it since I was eight years old...

I'm 58 1/2 now...never once hit a thing!

Of course, now I'm all worried about my neighbors at the storage lot!

I've tucked it in this tight spot twice since I moved here all by my lonesome...

That is about as tight as my spot at my old house in Denver before the wind blew my side fence down.

Decided not to replace most of the fence so that I could put the slides out.

I think that if I were in the position of having to get a new paint job on my 5'ver...I'd have all of the decals removed and go plain...or maybe have some custom logos put on it.

I'd definately get rid of those swirlies!

You do know you can edit your posts for a period of time (maybe a half hour) and not have to create a second post apologizing.

I still don't get the swirlies...

I mean...really...who ever came up with the idea that they look good on an RV?
