DH does not camp, so I do all of the towing. When we go out I usually drive. Sometimes I have DS drive so I can have a break.

No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D

My wife tows our 228 with her Outlook. Being a teacher with summers off she has the time to take it out all summer and has towed it everywhere, starting at the dealership, where she raised a few eyebrows and gotta couple way to go girl, when she pulled it out of their lot.

My DW enjoys driving highway miles, but still needs instruction while backing. I'm very proud of her.

My wife refuses to drive the TV alone...never mind with the TT attached. She knows that she needs to learn in case anything ever happens to me while we are on a trip but we can never find time to take the combo somewhere to practice. Besides, I really don't mind doing all the towing, it actually relaxes me.

My wife does not like driving the F150. I don't think she will ever pull the trailer

It's my truck, but DH tows it. (I sit quietly with my eyes closed and my knuckles white). BUT, I'm the one who backs it.

I do all the towing. Wife hauled the 2007 jayco pop up once. SHe has expressed a great deal of interest in hauling the 1990 Jayco 25ft TT. Once camping season winds down I'll take her to our work parking lot after hours and let her practice. She has all begun studyin gfor her CDL as she has the opportunity to drive tractor trailers at our work.
