We can back our fifth wheel into the drive very easily....problem is it's too steep and far too dangerous to think of unhooking. Therefore it goes to storage

Question Do I win? (or at least come close?)

When we had the pop-up, I could park it in our steep driveway only if I got one wheel on the driveway first and then sharply turned it to continue up the driveway. If I tried to back it straight in, it would hit on the bottom of the spare tire attached to the rear.

With the TT, it's impossible. It would hang-up on the rear bumper before the tandems even reached the driveway. In fact, when the hitch is in the receiver I can't even back just my truck up the driveway without it scraping.

Mine is 900 feet long, quite steep and weaves between an oak tree and two BIG rocks. Once I get to the bottom, things are OK.
