Congrats on the new 'Roo. You're gonna enjoy! If you've never pulled a trailer before, I suggest you find an empty parking lot somewhere and practice backing it up. You can pick a marked parking space and see if you can put the trailer dead on. Unless you're fortunate to always get a pull-through parking space in a campground, you'll need some backing-up skills.

Seems every time I ever screwed up backing a camper, everyone in the campground was either laughing at me, or telling me what I was doing wrong!:rollback:

Congratulations, also! Tip - take your time, don't rush, look at how the trailer is responding to you. Just guide it back.
