Find a KMart or Sears. Those lots are empty.

I went to our police station when I purchased my fifth wheel. Two officers came over to help me. They got cones out and had me back in. It paid off!

We did research for 6 months before we purchased a TT and followed all the discussions on the forum about towing and weight. I have had experience pulling trailers. When we purchased the TT we signed my wife up for professional driving lessons. The instructor was awesome and my wife is now very comfortable towing the TT. I was very surprised that when we purchased our trailer that the dealer (who is really a great dealer) had no recommendations or contact with any driving school.

A friendly reminder from a retired 48 and Canada tractor-trailer driver. The longer the trailer, the easier it is to back up. I used to hate backing in 28's and loved 48's and 53's. Now I pull a 2016 Jayco 29REKS Whitehawk TT. Happy Camping!

We started out in 1974 with a pop up and over the years we had a fifth wheel. Now I have a Jayco 17 ex-port hybird. This is the worst trailer for pulling and backing up. It hops and jerks when pulling. The dealer had us change tires. It made it better but still a pain. Backing up it is easy to over complicate when backing in. My fifth wheel was very easy. Trailer makes a difference. Single wheel or dual wheel.
