I was just like you 5 yrs. ago. I was terrified of towing. I, too, had someone from the dealership ride home with me and park my 13' pop up, that's how concerned I was.
What Dad said about the inside wheels is spot on. Add to that what a retired trucker told me: "Go slow - turn small."
Do what is comfortable for you
. Speed limit is 70? You're most comfortable doing 60 (like me)? Get in the right lane and do 60. If you feel you must allow someone to merge into your
lane (you have the right of way, remember). slow down even more; don't move over and become trapped in the fast lane.
In a tight spot, as in the aforementioned gas station? DW gets out and acts as a spotter. We don't move until a plan is in place. People waiting for you to do something? Let 'em wait. They'll be waiting longer if you screw up.
Stay calm. Remember, thousands of other folks have been in your situation and learned how to tow successfully. You will, too.
