I came across this video in Facebook of some sort of event/competition backing up trailers in what appears to be Europe.

Wait a minute, I thought you needed an F450 to tow a trailer?!?

What I'm wondering about is whether or not he did all of this using just his mirrors. Now THAT would be impressive.

It's just Mrs. SpeakEasy and me now (empty-nesters). But we can choose from among 7 grandchildren to drag along with us!

Backing up a trailer fast is not impressive. It is contrary to the real world and safety. JMO

I set up our company's RV shows and use a forklift to position the trailers 3 paces from each other. I've gotten pretty good at parking 80 to 100 trailers with military precision. Yet when I'm backing up my own 40 footer with my truck I can really suck. lol

Can your boss back? I thought most spend most of their time driving a desk.
As for the video, if a hand know his ride, and doesn't have to worry about things to hit...

It's okay, the car salesman told the guy his car has the same capabilities as an F450....
