I suck at video games, I would crash that in heartbeat. At least I can back up a trailer like a real man though.

The smaller the trailer, the more trouble I have.

Re: Very Cool....


I know what you mean, I have a 8 ft Thule trailer that we use for camping supplies. It looks ridiculous behind the one ton, can't even see it out the back window. We usually use it behind the wife's explorer, but when it comes time to back it into a space, I make her do it. She's much more coordinated than I am

If you can't back a trailer up you shouldn't be pulling a trailer...

That's just another reason America is too fat. For christs sake! Learn to back up a trailer. 😡

Little hint- turn the bottom of the steering wheel in the direction you want the trailer to go.

Really America is too fat!

For me is easy to turn my head, if I'm looking to the rear I turn the steering wheel in the right direction automatically.

Just for real men!

I never pulled a 30' enclosed trailer, only sailboats, that permit to see to rear. Something like this:

Re: Very Cool....


try a 53' van trailer with a sleeper. Have to use mirrors.

IMO if you can't back it up, you shouldn't pull it in the first place. There is a good chance you don't have the capacity to swing the corners right, judge distance, or stop safely.

It just takes practice.

Re: Very Cool....


When you are looking at the screen you aren't looking at your surroundings. I see a lot of dinged front ends and scraped bystanders rigs. So much more goes into backing a trailer than just turning the wheels the right way. How close or far from the turn, how much your rig will turn a specific trailer, etc.

Lots of mad people when they scratch their and another's nice rig.
