My wife has never driven our truck. She has absolutely no interest in driving the TV and TT. But she does offer me a great deal
of instruction and critique when I'm driving.

The DW drives the TV (she drove an F150 when we started dating[one of the things that attracted me to her]), but I do all the driving while towing. She will pull the trailer forward and back it onto the leveling blocks after I get it backed into the spot. Maybe this off season I'll talk her into towing on the road should an emergency arise.

I will be the main driver towing the TT. My wife says that's a "Man Job"!

Nice to see there are still some things a woman thinks us men are better at!!

Ever since I was a kid I have had problems getting car sick. Even now, just studying a map for a while while we're moving can make me feel queasy. My wife? She can sew, quilt, read a book all day in the passenger seat. Needless, to say, I do pretty much all the driving on trips. She has pulled our old PUP in the past, could probably handle the 25-foot Jayco TT in a pinch, but this is the best division of labor. She does give me nice shoulder rubs goin down the road.

We decided a long time ago that Sallie should know how to pull the trailer in case of an emergency. She enjoys towing the trailer.

My hubby won't let me drive after the first time. We were bringing our new baby home and were in the flats of Western Nebraska/Eastern Colorado. Hubby needed a nap. He was getting 10mpg while he was driving. After I drove a few hours, we needed gas. He did the math and saw that I was getting 7. He's never let me drive again.

My little 115 lb wife takes her turn pulling the fifth wheel. She is edgy backing but I am glad to do that!

I tow our Swift all the time but the dw has towed it around town and practiced backing it up in a vacant parking lot near our home. In an emergency, she could do a fine job. Also she knows how to hook up the wdh and sway bar and get the tt ready to go, just seems like a good idea to me, I think even older children should have an idea of how to get things hooked up......happy camping!

Kim, you were either going up hill or driving into the wind. Keep on pulling.
