Back in I'm cheap and it's so easy to back in it's not worth extra money. Would rather spend the money for full hook up.

never spend extra for pull through site. And back-in sites tend to have more privacy, which is more important to us.

I always just back in unless all the sites are pull-through, and, like as stated above, we prefer more private sites. I'm a fairly experienced driver and have many years experience with trailers of all sizes/shapes so it's no big deal to me, but many people are not comfortable with backing a trailer or they simply prefer the convenience of not having to do so. I certainly would not pay extra for it, but that's just me...

p.s. I generally find the back in spots are nicer/quieter/shadier anyway
I totally agree...

Same here. Pull throughs are great for a quick stop and no disconnect but I do like back ins as I enjoy backing the trailer into tight spots.

I've become pretty proficient at backing. I can back around a curve! If there's an additional charge, I'm backing in. Unless the back in site is just too tight. I'll pay $5 for a better view per night if we're staying two nights or more.
