There are times when I favor a solution that doesn't require an assistant (whom I refuse to name). It's just a much better solution than trying to find out just how the comms lost clarity.

Some sort of fancy laser thingy sounds like a wonderful choice for you to pursue.

Take care,
Stu
Stu, I remember that line very well! Ranks right up there with, "H-ll, the fall will probably kill you!" from Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid and "Luther said you could teach me something. I already know how to drink." from The Sting.

I agree with your thoughts regarding an assistantless parking process, even though I'm sure those guys with the orange sticks ALWAYS guided you perfectly into place at the gate.

Sort of a higher-tech, more elegant version of hanging a tennis ball from the ceiling. See first photo below.

The purpose of the setup GKW described, as I understand it, is to let you know exactly where you need to be side-to-side. The second photo below is the one GKW posted. Iíve rotated it to the correct orientation and added notes to clarify how I think his system works.


LEBAZ, Nice job of cleaning up my picture. Your edit explains the idea much better. This simple system will allow you to drive into a tight spot quite easily. I used it to backup straight into a tight service bay door for an oil change and lube without coming close to brushing up to the sides. I think it would be a nice option for these larger coach builders to build 4 lasers into each corner with easy activation from the drivers seat. Driving into the same parking spot regularly is a piece of cake compared to getting into the tight ones that pop up frequently.

I put two Flashing flashlights on a shelf. Each clearly visible in the mirrors. Orange cones on the ground help too.
