Well i think i'm in love...

With the 2010 Cherokee 295U.

We upgraded the tow vehicle to an F-350 V-10 crew cab (short bed). I realize this is going to be a huge change in towing (for DH, i'm happy being the passenger) - going from a 17' single axle to a honkin' 35' 5er.

Any good starter sites for learning the difference? Any words of wisdom for learning the difference in towing and backing up?

Aaaaand, finally, anyone have anything similar? I'm SO excited. We haven't pulled the trigger yet, but I think we both really want it.

The key to backing is practice and then more practice. This web site may help explain alittle
What I would do is go to an empty parking lot with some traffic cones and alot of time. Just keep backing up with as many different angels as you can think of. The main thing however is to go camping and have fun.
