wdsniderman & anchorwood,
Don't y'all hate it when inanimate objects learn to move just in time to jump in the way? Thanks for the chuckles. Unfortunately, I read this after getting our "new" Hi-Lo home. Here's my addition:
When we brought our 83 Voyager (25 footer) home, I had to back it through an alley and make a an almost 90* angle turn to get into the uphill driveway. Mind you, I'm not a professional driver but have had a bit of experience with backing trailers up. With my wife and father-in-law giving hand signals and verbal commands and multiple "wiggle turns", it still ended up with us realizing it wasn't going to fit though our back gate (even though we measured more than a couple of times) because of the rear lights were barely too wide.
We were left with a cracked light cover on the driver's side and our camper parked on a 30* grade driveway. This Spring, we'll be putting in a bigger gate so we can move it into the backyard and onto a much more level surface.
PS -- I've already joked with my wife about a pair of rearview cameras (one on each side on the back) as a "sanity saver." Not sure how much of a joke it is, yet.
