I learned a long time ago to NOT trust anyone, as a spotter. So, I simply set out the orange cones, and back up slowly. If I'm not sure, I STOP, GET out and take a look. Slow but sure.

That's exactly what I do, but having a spotter and/or assisting devices never hurts.




Well, ok Rarely hurts but that is dependent on the quality of the spotter.

I can back the "C" RV into any spot in one motion as well as the ladder truck into a complettlly dark fire station, wife likes to participate in the adventure so having her do signals in a profesional looking manner impresses the looky loos a lot, by this time I have done a thorough walk of the site looking for holes or roots, obstructions and avove all low hanging branches, if it is a campground I look for obstructipns and then back in with the wife doing the yellow shirt work and then the LSO moment and we have the 3rd hooked.

With mirrors and rear/side cameras I park ok. Trained drivers park 18 wheelers in the most difficult places without "Spotters."


as one of those trained 18 wheeler drivers. i do not trust anybody when backing up. ---they do not get penalized if a oops happens.---
and so many of then just wiggle the fingers in front of there faces, so they are not visible to me at all.
even while using the 4 way flashers, fools keep trying to drive behind me, and then a woman walking/pushing a stroller behind me, (this is while i am rolling backward, light flashing and beeper on).
best way is always look at where you are trying to back into, use reference marks. and as the board of dictators found out for a "nifty" saying G.O.A.L. aka get out and look.
take the extra couple minute's and be safe.
if you do use a spotter, use only one you can trust. and make sure they know the correct hand/arm signals you know.
do not forget to look for low branches.

Get Out and Look is excellent advice! I do it often and have found myself surprised a few times about where my clearance was and wasn’t. Also gives you a second to take a breath and de-stress.

Also a good point about trusting your spotter. I absolutely don’t trust my wife. In other ways, yes, but she couldn’t back a trailer to save her life. I tell her that I want her to warn me if I’m going to hit something. I wish she’d stick to that. She tries to help, so I try to be patient.
