I need lessons from this guy.

My Dad drove an 18-wheeler and they belonged to a camping club. On Friday nights when he would get to the campground, several of the rigs were waiting for him to be parked. LOL He always dispatched them quickly and didn't complain.

I am surprised that is not done at campgrounds! I can seen a bunch of campers driving / er, backing that course with everyone else watching.

Yea, I figure you would rig up a "fake" ultralight "RV" to pull. As long as everyone has to use the same rig, all's good!

My first impression was the tape was run at 2-3 times normal speed.
But then I noticed people walking in the background and other cars and decided the tape was run at normal speed.

Very impressive.

I don't need mad backing skill, I have my wife back there.
Sometimes she looks like she's swimming out of water with all her hand gestures but haven't hit anything yet.

LOL. I see this a lot.. the wife is back there yelling, waving, maybe not in mirror view. I'd rather get in and out of the truck 4 or 5 times and look than have that going on.
