LOL, I gots you beat there. Before my pop-up, my prior towing experience before the FW was a kayak trailer being pulled from a parking lot, down a walking path to a lake. If we couldn't park it back in it's parking lot, we'd simply get it close and PUSH IT INTO POSITION! Same with hitching up!
Then I got the pop-up - it was something like 3,300 lbs. and no longer had the option of pushing it around by hand. That was 19' from coupler to bumper. We had that for a year.
THEN we got the fifth wheel. The dealership sent one of their techs on a test-drive with me. I made him pull it around the building (back to front) before I'd get in and drive. We drove for 30 or 45 minutes and he gave me tips as we went.
After leaving there, we stopped at a couple of Walmarts on our way to a campground; I hopped 3 curbs and almost ran out of gas!
Since then, I've only gently kissed a curb or two.
The size doesn't bother me so much now. I still get anxious thinking about making it around campgrounds and having to back into our sites. But wife and I have been working on it. Our storage lot parking experience has gone from 50+ minutes down to about 5.
