klarowe, I also added a camera on the back of my trailer. I am a noob myself, so I dont really have any comparison between having a camera and not having one, but I think it makes things pretty easy. Wife and I use the walkie talkie setup, and we are starting to get that part down (our problem is we dont speak the same language, when giving directions I tend to speak in a way that sounds like an instruction manual, and she speaks in very vague terms, like "this side". I really dont need the added level of trying to figure out what side "this side" is, when I am looking in the mirror, lol, so she is getting better at "driver side" "passenger side", lol). I admit that I know what side she is on, so it shouldnt matter, but with all the things I am trying to concentrate on, I just want to think as little as possible
I also kind of chuckled when you mentioned backing in on the drivers side, I have heard that from everyone, and I agree in theory it gives you more visibility of everything, making it easier, but for some strange reason, I struggle mightily to back in on the drivers side. Maybe it is that I can see everything so I make steering mistakes that I wouldnt make if I wasnt able to see??? Everytime we have to back into a site on the blind side, I back it in one try, unhook, and get it all set up. And then we look at each other and go, "why the hell is it so hard on the 'easy side' but so easy this way". I wish I could explain it. But if we pull up and the site is on the drivers side, we know we are in for a long afternoon, lol. Back it up, pull it forward, back it up, pull it forward, back it up, pull it forward... That is probably a little bit exaggerated, we are about 50% of the time one try on the drivers side, and 100% one try on the passenger side, which makes no sense (we store it at a storage lot that is a blind side back in and nail that everytime, lol). Oh well, having only pulled a trailer 7 times (or there about) in my entire life, I am doing ok, lol.
