The first time we went camping with my late BIL, we drove to the campground and our individual sites. I backed in, leveled, put down the stabilizers, put the slide out, hooked up water, electric, and got the fridge and AC up and running. As I pulled my truck out, I looked down the road and he is still sitting in the road in front of his campsite. I walk down to and ask him what is the matter. He says I am waiting for you to back my trailer in! "I'll tow it but I won't back it in!" This guy owned a snowplowing business, delivered truck loads of gravel and topsoil, and had heavy equipment but would not back his TT in to a space. RIP Milt, you were a hoot!

I've been doing it more years than I want to admit and I still have trouble especially on the blind side.

We seem to either get the backing done easy in one shot, or we get to make a couple of stabs at it. Just depends on the day. But we always get it in there.

We frequently set up group spots for our gang, getting there early. Then we get to watch everyone else park, which can be quite entertaining

Glad no one was around with a video camera on our first time out with our pop-up. I think between the DH and I it took a total of an hour including a different site. I managed to break off a sampling a break a tail light cover. I did the damage while DH went to find someone to back it in for us. OK I spent a lot of time crying while trying to backup while he was gone. Wanted to give up on the whole idea of camping in anything other than a tent the first four hours of that trip Glad we both improved over time.
Hope no one is around with a camera the first trip out with the new TT. Oh wait the fun will be backing into the turn around for our own driveway
