VIDEO: How to Back Up a Travel Trailer

Posted In: "How To", Blog, Video

A few years ago we posted a video on YouTube revealing our “secret sauce” for backing up a travel trailer. Quite simply, there’s a simple technique that makes things go MUCH easier. We call this technique “The Scoop” ™. Once we mastered this simple technique, any problems with backing up our rig pretty much went away.

But there’s more to backing up an Airstream than just doing The Scoop ™. So we are created a “sequel” of sorts to that video. Our new video goes into more detail with regards to our own trailer backing technique.

I’m sure that all experienced RV campers have their own routines for this sort of task. Whenever we encounter a back up campsite, we fire up our walkie talkies and get to work.

We’re not saying that we know everything there is to know about backing up a trailer rig.

Heck, even as experienced RV travelers, we always like to hear different perspectives and fresh ideas. I’m sure we’ll learn more as we go.

But at this point, we’ve backed up our own 25-foot Airstream so many times, the task really isn’t stressful at all. It’s routine. At times it’s even – dare I say it? – fun.

We hope that newcomers may benefit from this knowledge.

This video explains what we do, and why. We hope you find it helpful. If you have any tips you’d like to share, don’t hesitate to leave a comment on the YouTube page.
