"Avoid (at all costs) getting into a position where you might have to back up."
That is one of the advantages of trailer towing, you can back up! Use your mirrors, camera and a spotter.
The secret of trailer towing is practice. Find a big parking lot, place some cones or boxes and practice. After a light rain or a skiff of snow is a great time, as you can see the tracks of the trailer. Learn the track of the trailer, take your time and enjoy the trip.
