I admit, that when someone gets to their campsite and starts to back in, set up, etc... I enjoy watching them. Sometimes to watch the craziness, sometimes to get tips on How To improve. I will also offer To Help if they just aren't getting it right and I can help

What can I say. Growing up on a dairy farm and backing that specific trailer in between two buildings with barely enough clearance (Well if I dead centered it you could not walk around either side) I got kind of good at using REVERSE.

Sometimes (OFTEN) the how you describe is the best show in town.


Home is where I park it.

LOL One stop last year we had this old friendly guy who was a seasonal come out of his trailer and sat at his picnic table, watched us from the very start pulling in to the last lawn chair I unfolded.

Here we go. The "I never have a problem" crowd, the "I like to make fun of them crowd", etc., should pop up about now. This never ends well. Mod, you might want to consider closing this before it gets out of hand.

I like to watch others for the simple fact to learn. Even though we have been RVing for a long time. I am certainly no expert.
I can back up and maneuver pretty well. But certainly not as good as a lot of others. I have a short bed and even though I do have a slider I never use it. So I take my time and watch that I do not turn to tightly.
I may go back and forth more then others but I get there.
I certainly do not make fun of others.

In south Miami there is a marina called Black point. They have a tiki bar there that is situated for some great people watching.
Folks loading or launching their boats at the 4 lane ramp. At least once a day someones truck would get a bath in the saltwater. A dozen more would come close.
