Question POLL: How many ladies out there driving/towing and set up the rv's?

Hey Y'all,

As I surf around the FR forum....
I see very few ladies out there commenting or references to ladies camping...
other than comments from their dear hubby's.

My question is:
How may ladies out there are REALLY driving or towing the rv's?

How many ladies can actually hitch-up the rv/trailer and or can set the rv up yourself?

Who does the most driving... ladies or the men?

I was just wondering because my hubby rides his motorcycle and I drive/tow the trailer.
I am very happy and comfortable setting up camp as well.
Have even given thought to going camping with my girl friends.

Would love to hear from all you Camp N Queens!

Last summer I could hook up / unhook and set up our tent trailer, as well as drive and back it in ( which isn't that easy). We have a new TT this summer and I have every intention on learning the same with it. I also plan on a girls trip this summer too

GO JEN!!! I love it! Go for it...
its so empowering to be able to hitch-up, back up and set up!
I love getting looks from the "guys"...
they are always so amazed a "girl" can drive and tow a trailer.

Get those girl friends and go camping!

I hitch, drive, tow and even back into dark and tiny campsites in national parks with giant hard trees all waiting to mash my trailer. Unfortunately, I have also been on duty come dump time, bearing repacking time and most horribly, oven cleaning time. OTOH - he does all these things as well so I suppose it's only fair.

Hey campnqueen!!!!!

This is our first trailer, but it is all mine baby!!! LOL
I did all the research and I picked this one out; I think my husband stood in it for all of 5 minutes when we were at the RV show :0
I intend on doing all the maintenance on it and will know how to hitch-up, tow, set-up, dump and all that.
I have always been a handy kinda girl, am not afraid to get my hands dirty, lol, so this will be no different.
I will however make my hubby drive to the campsites, whilst I read a good book and/or have a little snooze

But if he decides that camping is not for him (I hope this does not happen 'cuz I do kinda like him, alot!!!! ;p); it will just be the girls..meaning me, my 9 year old daughter, and our dog Zoey =]

Keep your fingers crossed for me that he loves it!!!!!!
