Do you have room to add a gate on the other side of the house? If so with a large back yard you might be able to drive in and drive out with minimal fuss.

Thanks for all the responses!
In general from what I am hearing is to measure to get exact dimensions first and formost as well as using spotters when backing but all in all it is doable.

Thanks !

We have our 5er parked on our lot and our gate opening is 10'.(double gate-2 5' pieces) Just back up slowly. Watch the mirrors on your truck though.

I’ve got a 9 foot opening and eves on onside of the driveway. It’s really tight and planning on redoing gate to get a bit of room on far side from house. Hoping to gain about a foot. It’s only doable in day light.

Front receiver hitch would really help squeezing an 8' trailer between 9.5' gate. Dollar to a doughnut, you'll scrap if not bump one side or the other.
