Not only can't my wife back up the trailer, she says the truck is to big for her to drive.

To add pictures you can just scroll down when you are composing a message in the thread and click "attach files" It automatically puts in the thumbnails. Another way to so store them at a place like photobucket. Then just insert the links or click the "insert picture" icon and paste the link for it to show.

As for wives backing up. Well, my husband does it... but he's not great at it. I've never seen such jig jagging ever... and he get irritated and that makes it worse. I had to stop him and "quiz" him on what to do to make the trailer go left. His answer was correct.... so I said "Good... now [moderator edit] crank it hard and back up."

I'm going to have to get some practice because that's enough to make a good woman spit venom.

Sylvia tell your husband to just take his time and slow down. He will just do fine or go fined a big parkiig lot and the 2 of you can play it will help.

That's a lovely idea in theory. Part of the trouble lies in the fact that our street is rather busy. And the drivers here are well, let's just say that they will go clear on the other side of the road and squeak past the nose of the truck while it's still rolling forward... Even with my car parked in the middle of the road with the emergency flashers on. (ok I'll say it... they are morons)

Nurse, Be sure and make some of the fall and winter shows. That's the best way to look at a lot of RVs and TTs and compare features side by side. Even if you are thinking used, you can compare the brands and floorplans you might be interested in.
that's a nice looking Escape, and it looks like a comfortable camp site.

TopV, it looks like we just purchased a similar sized trailer. Ours is a Chalet Takena. We got a 6 cyl Jeep Grand Cherokee as the tow vehicle in September. We went on a one day overnight an hour away, then a two night trip 3 hours away. On Sunday, we leave for our big trip about 3,000 miles.

We will be traveling with a 65 lb dog and a cat who is not too happy about this.

This will be a shock to our system but we are excited.

Wish you luck Hammer and a safe carefree trip. The real test for us wont come until May when we both retire. We both feel strange doing it but decided to enjoy life for awhile.

As for my tow i started out with a Ram 6 Cly, but decided to up grade to a 5.7 Hemi.

Keep in touch and drop us a line during your travels..

Joe
