We did it the hard way.
I had a head full of theoretical knowledge. That's all. I read a lot of stuff. Good information in this thread.
We drove from Georgia to RVWholesalers in Ohio. With no towing experience at all, we moved the brand new 5th wheel from RVW to the local KOA campground. When we made reservations we told them we were newbies and they insisted we take a pull through site. Nice of them.
Then a few days later, we drove to a state park in Kentucky. Tried backing into a site that was not level, at all, and too small. But with some help from a neighbor we got it in there.
Then on to Georgia with a stop at Cloudland Canyon State Park. More fun learning to back up into a site. As we were leaving the rangers used blue lights and sirens to stop us, our TV antenna was up (we didn't have a checklist. But we sure do now!)
Then home. Got my (truck driver) brother in law to help us get backed down the driveway.
It was a white knuckle ride. But it can be done. We did it.
