That parking job was done way too easily! I didn’t hear one bit of cussing, no loud crunch, and your wife didn’t yell at you at all!


LOL, it was an easy-ish spot. And we rarely yell at eAxh other. In fact, the only time we got heated while parking the rig was at a wide open 70’ long pull thru! It was the damnedest thing... couldn’t quite get straight to each other’s eyes.

I found it easier to just do it my self.


For the most part I agree. Having another set of eyes can be beneficial, however their tends to be less grief when I do it solo.
Solo is my preferred method for most sites.

I think this rig came with one, but parts were lost at the dealership. I finally got the monitor months later but it still doesn't work. I gave up on it. (shrug)

My wife, however does an amazing job spotting for me. She parks the trailer by voice and I just try to make the truck/trailer do it. We’ve learned a lot over the years in our communication with each other.

Same here actually - we're getting better at it. My comment was just that compared to the lack of conflict with the original poster, We've had troubles.


There is something special about camping in an RV.

We decide where we want it, and I back it in. Wife watches, and intervenes if I'm going to hit something. Usually takes only a couple of minutes.

I'm sure we disappoint the peanut gallery with our lack of drama.

I like the twirling of both hands in the mirror telling you which way to “turn your wheels” when your tow vehicle is no where near an obstacle the driver can’t see.

I get the hands held apart and then slapped together all at once too...

But, generally the communication is friendly and adequate for me. One site tho, I must have tried to back it up 5 or 6 times before I finally got out of the truck to see what she was trying to tell me. The site was actually angled relative to the road. I'm trying make the trailer perpendicular to the road, she was trying to make it parallel to the site. Best part of that day, after we finally get the trailer set in place, go to plug it in, the post is dead [emoticon]
