Always fun getting a new rig!

And yes, watching a newbie set up and tear down the first few times is fun for others.

A couple of guys thought I was going to provide some entertainment for them when I went to back a 40' MH into a tight spot. The came out with drinks and sat at the picnic table to watch the fun. Sorry guys, didn't happen. Put it in perfectly the first time with no help, but I did back up too far and had to move forward so my rear jacks were on the pad.
For some reason I've never had problems backing any RV or trailer into a spot. Some people never do get the hang of it. Just takes practice I guess.

I've been RV'ing since 1957 and got my first TT in 1968 (a used 16') never been without an RV since.

I expect I'm going to provide some entertainment the first few times with the Magna in setting up. Just not used to the way it's set up yet and after almost 13 years with the Dutch Star I've got a lot to unlearn and relearn!

That is one good-looking 5er you've got there! But what's with that little truck parked in front of it?
