I LOVE these arguments - they are not discussions, they are arguments.
It is possible with my Element. 50ft, straight back on asphalt at a truck stop. Could have gone further but no need to.
Jeep, on grass, wheel swung over hard within the first 10 feet.

Please keep this going, most fun I have had since cold weather froze the South.

Yes, anybody can back up with a toad attached. I did it once, and I couldn't get the toad out of the body shop for three weeks. Good Luck !!!

Doc, If the wheels went hard over in 10 feet of backing one of two things went wrong. Either the person you had in the toad holding the steering wheel from spinning didn't or you didn't have someone back there holding it.

No one holding it. Just let the MH engine idle and did very little steering motion. Had a Tracker 4 dr that backed as well. In fairness to the Jeep, the ground was uneven and on grass, but I immediately understood what I have been reading some of these people say for years. Could have been 12 feet maybe. I believe you nailed the two possibilities - the only two
