On our very first trip out, we were following friends. After we arrived at the campground, we followed them along the trail to the campsites. They made a nice easy turn. After we rubbed the slide against a wooden fence, we remembered their trailer was 5 feet shorter than ours. DH proceeded to back up to correct the situation. "Do you want me to get out and spot you?" Of course not, he can handle it all! Thankfully there were no people behind us, but we did back into a tree. The ladder shoved right through the back of the trailer. Thank goodness for insurance! It cost around $3,000 to repair.
We were camping with 3 other families. As soon as they found out what happened, the guys all came over and, as they helped him back into our site, they told him all the stories about the times they - and everyone else in our camping group - crashed their own trailers. They definitely helped him feel a bit better. Looks like we got our initiation out of the way. LOL
