X2 and it's not just the short length that makes them hard it's also the fewer axles the more squirrelly they are when backing as well. That is part of the reason I refuse to buy any trailer that is less than two axles! Plus with two or more axles the better they tend to track while driving down the road! Just my 2 cents

I'm almost 70 and pulling a Flagstaff 27'. It's all in one's mind. I feel 18, until I look in the mirror in the mornings.

X3 Rattle! I have a small utility trailer that is a pain in the ***** to back up, especially with a long wheelbase truck!

48 (for a couple more days) pulling 42'

Wouldn't it be easier to pull your trailer with your truck? I'd hate to make my wife try to pull ours.

*Sorry, couldn't resist*
