New Wolf Pup 18TO owner HELP!!!!

Hello, I am a single female owner of a 2019 Wolf Pup 18TO. I have one year to get better at hooking up and backing up. I will retire next June and want to hit the road as a Travel Technologist. I also need help on adding storage to this beauty. How do I even put up a toilet paper roll or a paper towel roll? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks, Cyndie AKA WFMB

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. I use a toilet stand instead of a fixed holder and it works great.

There's several threads here that may be of interest.

Before you set out, I'd suggest you look into TPMS. A must have for single axle trailers.

Welcome to the 18TO club. We love ours, but as you mentioned, storage is limited. For towel holders, we found some that just hang over the cabinet doors. The TP holder is one that sticks to the wall with strong, double stick tape. One thing I've noticed is that the interior paneling is very smooth, so much so that normal double sided adhesives won't grab.


What are you towing it with? I have a backup camera in the tailgate handle of my truck. I noticed that, since everything on the front of the trailer is black, I was having a hard time seeing exactly where the ball coupler was in the camera. So I taped off everything except the tip of the coupler and spray painted it white. Now I have great contrast and can back the ball straight into the coupler the first time.

I have a Ford F150 with the backup camera screen in the rear view mirror. Not very big. I'm having the electric jack added with hopes that the light on it will help. Thanks for your reply.

You're getting really good advice here and I can't really add much, but I am curious as to what a "Travel Technologist" is ? Care to elaborate on that ?

I have this exact same set up. it takes a little bit of trial and error to get it right. i spent several tries going forward and backward to get it right the first few times. now i can do it in just one go. practice! get out and look, you will become an expert in no time. are you backing up at night? the light on your tongue jack will help a lot. there is also a little plugin you can get for your 7 way plug that has a flood light in it. i keep my connected all the time unless im towing. makes hitching at night a breeze!

Welcome to the forum. You will find many people on this forum willing to help with any issues either specific or general. But please refrain from writing the word “ Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!” It sounds like the boy who cried Wolf.
