Back in the 80's we had a 19' TT I pulled with a '70 Ford E-100 Van and got pretty good at backing the thing into some pretty tight spots. I would look the campsite over and decide where the best place to position it would be. Then I would take one of my three children and have the stand about 3' beside where I wanted the axel on the TT to be, then back in till the child held their hand up meaning "Stop Daddy". This worked fine, done it all the time till one time my mother happened to be with us. I found the site we wanted, scouted it out and placed my four year old daughter where I wanted the axel. Now I must say here that these kids were used to this routine, they didn't move as I backed in so there was no danger to them. Anyway, I started backing the trailer around to line up with the site, still about 40' away from the site. As I brought the trailer around the daughter wasn't there, still a long ways from where she should have been standing, I stopped jumped out and ran back to see what had happened. My mother thought I was going to back over her and over the granddaughters protest had carried her about 75' up in the woods away from the site. We had a good laugh about grandma "saving" the granddaughter. DW was working at this time so the kids and I done some quality time camping together.
