Crushed the bumper end one time when son, (brilliant 15 year old who knows everything because I am a booger eating moron) backed me into a four ton boulder that was not there.

Whenever I get to where we store our camper I have at least 3 spotters. I have to park between 5 trees and a workshop. I usually end up telling 2 of them to get out from BEHIND the camper because my mirrors can't see around corners. Spotters are no good if THEY can't see YOU in the mirrors.

I know how you feel. When we brought home the very first day our brand new PUP I was pushing it into the garage and side swiped my 1964 Chevy. The Chevy was fine but its bumper scraped about 6 feet of camper. $1100 damage to the PUP. You would think I learned from that...nope. Backing our HTT into the driveway without a spotter I backed right into the garage overhang...banged up the gutter, scratched the HTT. I think we all do dumb things from time to time. Good luck with the repairs.

Talking there are video aides out there

when you get home and you have time to get on the internet google
The Long Long Trailer with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez. my wife ordered it through walmart.com . we watched it and learned what not to do when backing up. really,get the movie it is sooooo funny. when you watch Desi character back up it will make you feel better.when you back up make sure you have measured the height and width and add 10 feet to both measurements and pull in straight. it will fit every time.enjoy the movie!!!
p.s. it is a good idea to hve the height printed backwards on the front left corner of your rv so you will always know the correct heigth. i am in the process of doing this myself.rv with robin williams is also good.

Awesome movie. I see it play out just about every time we head to Moab Utah and my wife starts filling up the compartments with pretty rocks. LOL!

Very sorry to here about your accident and hope the repaires go well. I just retired from a aircraft repair/modification company. I can't count the number of times workers ran trucks, tractors and fork lifts into aircraft and we had "TRAINED LICENSED SPOTTERS". Bottom line even with backup cameras and spotters it happens because we are all human.

This guy has the worst luck! I was going to go camping with him next year but I'm starting to have second thoughts. You're going to have more money invested in turnpike fees than campground fees if you keep going back to the dealer.. LOL
