My first: I approach every campground with absolute fear and dread of having to park my rig. When I get backed into the site, I still feel like it was luck rather than skill! More times than not, it's not a complete mess - it actually goes pretty well.

I love doing it. And been doing it so long that its almost unconscious.

Unlike boats, that don't sit still while you figure out what to do, an RV allows you to just stop and figure it out.

The DW and I have interesting conversationS on which way is left or right LOL.

my secret confessions: I love it when I back it in easily with a bunch of guys standing around expecting a show from the lady. I nail it and they comment on how they couldn't have done it that easily. I can pretty much put that TT darn near anywhere I need to unless I'm too tired to know my drivers side from my passengers side. . I also am usually way ahead of DH and have already begun changing the trajectory of the TT before I tell him, but hey it makes him feel good to help.

my secret fear- I am horrible t judging height of things so I'm terrified of every overhead wire and gas station roof. don't know what I'll do when we finally get around to getting the new fiver.

Yeah that helps but sometimes the DW doesn't realize that left is right and right is left regarding the front wheels AND how slowly a fiver reacts to driver input when backing.

We get a lot of entertainment out of it.

yeah even after I taught DH how to back, he still doesn't get the reaction time of the TT.

Secret confession #4 and no offense to any of you who use this, which is a lot of people. But I get really annoyed with the DW, DH, DD, DS abbreviations. To each their own, but since this is a secret confession and all...

one more confession.... I drive by truck trailer combos and judge them for safety all the time now (and not just rv's but all kinds of trailers). I look at how level they are, if it is way too much trailer for the TV, or if they have or don't have wdh. I then secretly wish I could take a pic and post on a forum if the setup is really bad.
