My secret confessions - I have a few. My camper stays cleaner than my house! And it has nicer towels, silverware and decor in it than I keep in my house. I also don't cook very much at home but I love cooking while we're camping. I'm obviously a much better camperwife than I am a housewife!

Ha ha sounds like my wife! We grill when camping so the cooking is on me. Man thought I was only one. I tease her when I see other women driving, setting up etc.

I don't cook - not even to grill.

The 1st time I took this camper out, I tried to get it into a spot that I had gotten my Trailmanor into.....didn't even think I was gonna get out of that bind. I then promptly ran over a tree stump at another site....that goodness it didn't take out my waste water dump valves.

And these are just the mishaps that I admit to.
That's why I always hope and pray that the RV park or campground we are reserving a site at has pull-throughs and one is available. I really hate it when a campground has a narrow road and the sites are 90 degrees to the road. That always means stressing the tires and axles.

don't feel bad you just totally described me. I even worry about how neat I keep it at the campground. Doing the dishes does not bother me when camping either. I guess everything is better when camping, even housework.

X2. Holidays are good times to stay home.

OK, my confession is that when DH looked at the new TT dwarfin' the back yard and said;

We didn't need that much trailer

I said,

Who's talking about need....this puppy is about WANTS!

Oh, I can't back to save myself. Once jack knifed a van with 2 horse trailer connected just trying to back it up far enough to mow where ex had parked the V/HT the day before.

"gimme 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around"

I'm also guilty of running back and forth from side to side while yelling directions to DH while backing.

Those who can....do. Those who can't...yell directions.

Janice- having learned how to back using my old 2 horse trailer, I can tell you these babies are easier to back than the little horse trailers. just go to a mall or school and practice in an empty parking lot. you'll get it.
