Practice makes perfect.
The real fun is when your campground neighbors gather 'round to laugh and point while you try to back in.

OK, I'm kidding. I've never never never seen that happen. And every one of us has struggled with backing our TTs in at one time or another.

The other campers will come to help. But I find the more help I get the longer it takes. Then we talk about how all the help makes it worse and everyone agrees it does make it worse.

A fellow I really respect showed us an easy way to back a unit into a spot. He will measure 8.5' from the pad and lay a block of wood where he wants the wheels to end up. He then backs up from the drivers side to align the wheels with the block of wood.

I have watched him back units in several times and he always hits the 'mark'.
