Who needs an excuse? LOL!
Honestly, I suck at backing up trailers. I manage it, slowly, and with people gawking.
I can't hold a candle to the "Towing Master" (my dad), or worse, practically every guy in my wife's family who either currently is, or at one time was, a truck driver.
I don't know that I'd buy a truck with an automated system like this. Watching it doesn't convince me that it would really help all that much.
