Greg and Teresa,
Watching you back up would be part of the entertainment for the rally?

And that is my fear

I know it's crazy, but I occasionally wake up in the middle of night worrying about that very thing. And yes, I know, we've all been there at some point. But still...

Don't worry - when the line of tow vehicles waiting to get by gets long enough, someone will hop out & park it for you. Just another thing to heighten the anxiety!

Then again, if you park it yourself & look like a first timer, you may get a round of applause...

Borrow or rent a utility trailer and get some practice! After dragging around a Uhaul for 24 hours you'll feel a lot better about it. Set out a few plastic buckets on a big parking lot to get started.

Hi: titanizer... Every campground usually has at least one. Even Cracker Barrels have them. Alf
