Holy Smokes! You have got to want it real bad to go that route...

Tightest Parking Spot Ever

Having towed both, I can say bumper pulls have their benefits. The dynamics of axle location and the coupler location (pivot behind tv axle), less input is required from tv to move the trailer around.

5ers are handy because you can jack-knife them... but a TT can be swung in pretty tight spots... without the tv being 90 degrees.

Like I said, there are pros and cons of each regarding maneuverability.

The tough part with a TT is having more swing behind the TT axles. The ass-end can swing around and hit things when turning sharp.

I agree but 5th wheels tow a little better and they have much more storage room then a TT but TT have advantages but I am glad to have my Crusader 5th Wheel over my Roo Hybrid.

Agree, but those subjects were not what I was responding to.

We were talking about backing into tight spots.

With the camper there he doesn't need the fence and based the how its facing it would appear to be his. That and the extra room from cutting down the overhang and he'll have plenty of room.

This guy is THE KING!

I think we have seen the limits of possible backing skills. Well maybe it could be better if he could pull it off with one shot

Great job. That's not too far off of how I have to back my trailer into the 12' wide storage cover in our back yard. We started off with a shorter trailer and a shorter tow vehicle. Current setup requires a bit more maneuvering, but do-able by knowing where it needs to be line up when starting. I've done it so many times over the years its just second nature now.

Hi all, This was my video
Thanks for all the comments and compliments!

It's way past midnight and I just got home from work, so I am too tired at the moment to respond to all the comments, questions and concerns.

Let me just say quickly, backing in the RV is not a chore for me. It doesn't intimidate me at all! Rather, I actually enjoy it, it's a fun task I never seem to get bored of. Ok, I will admit, the first times I did it were freaky, until I figured out the "perfect" path. And, you won't believe me when i say this: no, it is not an accident waiting to happen. I got it figured out .

Anyway, I just wanted to pop up here and say hi. I will try to be back here this weekend and discuss all the issues that have been mentioned in this thread.
Take care!

How does he see down the side ? He has standard mirrors on the truck, not towing mirrors.
