Almost always especially with the Class A. I got pretty good at backing the first RV, an '88 Toyota Dolphin. For a year we had to use it as a daily driver work vehicle as well as our living quarters. As I got in an hour before DW, I had to back it in 5 days a week. Next RV was a 31 ft class c and even though it was not really that big a problem, it just worked out better to have the wife go to left rear and spot. We've had some communication problems over the years so next time out we are going to try the hand signals presented earlier.

I can see this working just fine.
If the 2 use radios the female can back the RV with her eyes closed.

DW & I have worked out hand signals and I don't move if I cannot see her. Always remember my brother's story where he was backing in and his wife kept waving her hands in every direction...he stopped, got out, walked back, and asked her what she meant by those signals....turns out that she was trying to wave the gnats away. :-)
