Tight spot

Trees everywhere while trying to position the trailer. Had the side of the trailer 1" from a tree with the un-level ground forcing the trailer closer to the tree which was angled the wrong way. Tried to pull trailer straight but when I saw it would scrap I stopped, unhitched the trailer, repositioned the truck at a pulled at a better angle.

Anyone else get into a tight spot and had to unhitch and reposition the truck?

I'm thinking of getting a front hitch receiver. Won't help with a 5er, but you can stick a TT anywhere like that.

This was a place a sked loader would have been handy

No, but I saw a new trailer at the dealer the owner had destroyed arguing with trees.

Trees will win everytime. State Parks are great and shaded quiet but some have trees too close to the roads...especially when the tree is on the inside of a sharp turn.
