Backing Camper Tricks
Over the weekend we were at a state park that only has 18 sites, it's a nice little park about 3 miles off interstate 10 so you get a lot of travel trailer layovers for the night. As we enjoying the evening around a camp fire one guy came in and it was almost painful to watch him over correct on this 24" finally my adult son said, "come on Dad lets go help him!" I warned him that some guys were a little touchy about getting help.
It wasn't 30 minutes later that this guy comes in pulling a 32". Interesting watching him, first he turned off his head lights so his eyes would adjust to using his running lights, then we notice that the wife has her phone out talking to him over the trucks blue tooth connection. He easies that big rig in with one fluid movement as the wife talks him back. Later we watched a women come in pulling a 28" Airstream. She walks the spot and the gets out two battery powered lanterns place one on either side of the pavement just off the pavement on the grass, then she to turns off her head lights and just leaves the running lights on, She too slides that rig right into the spot. We were impressed. My own expertise at backing are just barely acceptable so I am always easily impressed.
I wondered what are some of your tricks for backing your rigs in at night.
