Wow - what an improvement!!
 
Today when dropping off the trailer I was able to make a wide u-turn and get into position to back into my storage place while I waited for the mgr to help. He only had me pull forward once and within a minute or two my trailer was parked in its space. This is a good record for me because it usually takes about 30 minutes or 1/4 of a tank of gas plus pulling forward a zillion times to get it backed in.

When I was at the cg I felt ready to back into a site. Next time I stay there I will get that site I've been eyeing for a while.

I am glad you don't park next to me then.
Just kidding. Practice makes perfect.

:roflblack:Haha :)
Actually it was harder to get it in to my space when the other spaces next to mine were empty. Now I can see my space because it's only the open one :D

I forgot to say that using mirrors that I could see with helped a lot too.

I heard that 5th wheels are easier but must say that the one in your picture is very big...

Way to go Terier.....We are all proud for you.

Not harder or easier for me, just different. They don't react as fast.

I always hate the seasonal refresher. The first time you back the trailer in after 5 months is always good for a laugh.
