Our first trip in our first trailer- I backed in and wife gave directions!
It was UGLY. She would say things like watch out or move over....
WHICH WAY I would yell.... After 2 angry arrivals at different camping spots she said if I thought giving directions was so easy I should try it!
We swapped places and it's WONDERFUL! She drives and I walk around
and along side and tell her exactly which way to steer and when to stop or
move. It works great. She is like my own personal robot/remote control
behind the wheel. We get the hitch on the ball 1st time every time
and our arrivals are SO much less stressful.
We park in a shelter at home and in order to be able to open the trailer
door the other side has to be within 2 inches or less of the post. We make it every time and haven't so much as scuffed off the dirt!
It's worked great for us for the last 10 years.
