This past Friday, I woke up and really wanted to go camping. Yet Maury just could't get away. I, having never driven a trailer, said, "Hey, if I don't go to far I can drive that trailer by myself."
My 18 y/o daughter was game.
Looking online, the nearby campground didn't have any openings. My daughter and husband suggested that I call to see if by any chance they had any. So I called and they did have one spot left. It was a pull-in site, Perfect! I won't have to back up! (Now mind you, I didn't know that a pull-in site is NOT the same as a pull-thru site!)
Maury hooked up the trailer and away we went!
Driving our 21' Escape was a breeze!
Well, I did end up having to back the trailer in, because our cords and hoses were not long enough to reach the hook ups. After many tries and lot of laughter, I gave up backing and let a very nice man back the trailer in for me. I'll get it next time!
This weekend was full of many firsts for me. Pulling a trailer, hooking up everything, building a fire, making the television and the DVD player work together, sticking my gloved hand down the toilet because the TP was piling up (I guess we weren't adding enough water while flushing
) packing up to leaving and hooking up the trailer again and emptying the tanks!
Phew! It was a great weekend and I can't wait to go out again.
