Good grief, many of the posts on this subject make it sound like the guys' worth is somehow measured by his trailer backing ability. Both my husband and I (and we are not unique in this), can and do, hook/unhook, pull and BACKUP all of our trailers - 5er, gooseneck, and bumper pull. When our son was about to turn 14 and wanted to get his drivers license, a requirement was that by himself he could hook/unhook and back up every trailer. We were at the DMV on his 14th birthday.
To answer the OP original request - check out Maisto Diecast cars.
I love my DW dearly however, we all have our strengths and weaknesses and one of her self admitted weaknesses is her driving ability - more specifically, her backing ability.
In the past 3 years alone she has backed into a stone retaining wall, Backed off the edge of our driveway (tow truck recovery required) side swiped the passenger SIDE (most of it) of her car backing out of our garage, backed over our mailbox. BUT the topper of all events....
Wait for it.....
She backed through the closed garage door!!!
IF I were to give her the keys to my truck especially while towing our camper I would need to have my head examined.
Now, in her defense, she is an awesome wife and the most caring mother to our 4 children and we are extremely lucky to have her in our lives.
Like I said, we all just need to know our strengths, weaknesses and limitations.
