Let’s do it with a short, single axle trailer now!

Do you twist your head around to look back, or just use the mirrors? Turning around ain’t as easy as it used to be.

Enjoyed the video buddy!

That's pretty darn good. I've never backed up a gooseneck but can do a longer trailer like you show in the video. Maybe not 30 mph, lol. No way could we do that with a short trailer.

You got skillz!

Great job, but do it with a yard cart on the back of a lawnmower!

Not impressed! Now you show me a video of someone in a crew cab long bed with a 10ft bumper trailer then I’ll be impressed! [emoticon]

Very well done! Things could turn bad quickly if the trailer starts to get away from you on a turn going that fast....[emoticon]

I don't think my G56 will go that fast in reverse but I'm good with that!

Happy New Year! [emoticon]

And one you cannot see over the tailgate[emoticon]. Good job none the less.

I've had people marvel that I can back a 14' tool crib down a narrow curvy wooded driveway in one shot, then I've had a time or two where I struggled with the simplest of back ins. Go figure[emoticon]

Impressive backing skills--Nice job!

One of my first jobs was working for a lawn and garden dealer, and one of my responsibilities was picking up and delivering various equipment. This was in an upscale area full of big houses on 10 acre lots. There were plenty of really long drives with nowhere to turn a truck and trailer around. I had standing orders to stay off the customer's lawn unless I was retrieving a disabled machine.

Backing into campsites doesn't seem so bad.

Looking over the tailgate has nothing to do with it. There is nothing to see from the driver's seat looking out the back window.... you need to back up using those nice Ford tow mirrors. The main advantage of backing up the gooseneck over backing up my 5ver is I can see over the back corner of the gooseneck's deck which allows me a better view of what's behind me. I'm sure I can't back up a 14' bumper pull utility trailer at that speed nor would I try ........but my wife goes for a hair appointment this afternoon.... hehe, I might just have to go hook onto to that little enclosed motorcycle trailer and.... no I'm an adult now..... but.....

pfffft I could have done that with my eyes closed. [emoticon]

All kidding aside that's pretty impressive. Even if I wanted to try it I don't have any roads that empty near me.

I don't think my truck would do 30 MPH in reverse. Might have to check, but not with a trailer.
