A tandem trailer is easier to back, compared to a single axle trailer.
what would you be towing with?

I have to re- learn each season. Backing in I always have to stop and think. The other thing is that we only camp once or twice a year, so I'm not sure the investment in a trailer is justified. I like going down the road easily, and cheaply if we go very far. But... A trailer gives us our own bathroom.....

Oh, that explains the Popup turning on a dime. I have a Ford Explorer I use everyday, I will be able to tow a small Roo, looking at the 183.

An easy trick is to place your hand on the 6 o'clock position and turn your hand in the direction you want the trailer to go.
