[QUOTE=PrairieBoy;174942]Whenever possible I like to have the site to my drivers side. This way I can see exactly what the trailer is doing and not have to worry about hitting something on the other side of the camper. All DW has to do is make sure I don't back up too far and hit something. I usually back in once as far as I can then pull forward to straighten out then back up and put it on leveling blocks. The new trailer is quite a bit longer than my old trailer so I suspect I'll have to make a few more forward and back passes to get it just right but having the site opening on my side makes it so much easier than backing it in from the other direction. My wife also has a tendency of disappearing from view when I'm backing up and she doesn't understand why I stop when I can't see her.
I am also 1 of those guys that usually comes over to help if I can see a couple having trouble getting a trailer into a spot. I usually wait until its obvious they are having trouble, then I'll come over and ask if they need a hand. Most times the help is accepted, usually by the wife. Most often the trouble is the driver doesn't know which way to turn the steering wheel to manipulate the trailer in the direction that it needs to go.[/QUOTE]
I understand that the trailer will move in the other direction but being a short gal it's real hard to see the direction of the truck tires when I am told to straighten them out. This is pretty much a blind move for me.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
