I'm with you on this one Gene. Backing is half the fun. Some can do it easily, and some never do learn how to back a trailer. Its almost like the spot "challenges" me, and I'm determined to win!!
Thanks, Jerry and Ginger

Ok, ok, I can see we need backing lessons. As it turns out, my new garden tractor mated to our garden trailer backs exactly like a truck with trailer attached. It's the perfect practice vehicle. (Now if I could just get my wife to try it. Indeed, if I could just get her to try driving forwards with the Airstream.)

Hi Deb, As Hagar's personal chauffeur in the Hagarstream I can say we have used the senior pass 5 times since we bought it two weeks ago. It's a great deal. We obviously don't have the parking problems that you trailer people do but if someone were to question me about length, I would talk about the coach length not bumper to coupler. If they argue you can always play dumb.

This is Hagar doing a little backseat driving.

Cheers, Dan

I'm glad our trailer doesn't back like our riding mower and cart. Every time I back the riding mower the cart jackknifes within 5 feet.
