If you drive a recreational vehicle, you probably find backing and parking to be difficult and intimidating. Just because the salesman says it handles like a car, doesn’t mean you should believe him — not completely anyway.
The truth is, there is a real need for the right type of help when backing up a RV.
Everyone knows a little damage to your RV can cost a lot. Backing an RV can also be embarrassing — seesawing back and forth, stop, pull ahead, back up again, yelling back and forth with a human spotter, you get the idea. You need to have a handle on maneuvering in close quarters because many RV parks pack’em in pretty tight. The best way by far to back into any spot is to have a clearly marked lane and a highly visible stationary target indicating precisely when and where to stop.
