backing up a trailer is easy. Even easier when loaded(weight)
I used to work in a marina, and it would be nothing to back a 40' boat up with a gmc pickup. Best way to learn is to practice..Sorry

They wont teach you how to do it?

How did you get the job without the experience?

Easy way to back a trailer is to put your hand at the bottom of the wheel, whatever way you want the trailer to go, move your hand in that direction.

Now when you get real good, you can back up two trailers. Just throw everything you learned about left and right and right and left out the window. need to learn how to back, drive with and be speedy with trailer-000_0034.jpg

It can be done, and has been done.


Ya got me a little worried about the "jumping ditches" part, maybe I'm not hip to the vernacular. Do this, go to U-Haul and rent a trailer for the day. It's cheap cash and you're insured. Find an empty warehouse parking lot with lines and docks. Practice till your fingers bleed. The longer the trailer, the easier it is to back up.

Where in NC are ya? I'd take a ride on a weekend to help you out if you're close enough. I live in Columbia SC and I've been a trainer and a driver mentor. I've had my CDL for 20 years, pulled everything from dump trailers to gasoline tankers to now pulling doubles.

Let me know.

im in the wonderful gvagus nc haha im a lil far away

the uhaul thing is a good idea, ill give it a shot

also by jumping ditches i meant like real shallow ditches where there isnt exactly a pathbut you kinda make one nothin deep though, i just thought it may whack the trailer off ballance or something,

also about what is a good speed, my dad was talkin bout when he used to do this and how about some people wouldnt load the tobbacco right and if you went too fast the trailer would fish tail and flip

I'm hoping you spelled where you are wrong. I couldn't find it on a map and Google kept laughing at me.

They way it's loaded will definitely have an effect on stability. Just remember too, the speed is not only gonna bite ya in the ace while pulling but it'll kick you harder in the balls when you're trying to stop. Especially in a panic stop.

I've seen these agricultural trailers and the way they load them. I keep as far away as possible. Good luck

haha greenville the locals call it gvagus, im from the backwoods surroundin it but i have peed there so it is mine.

one of the main things i was worried bout was speed, you can go 65 and have no problems here but i think id be afraid at 55.

i know its harder to stop i always try to decelerate slowly already to practice and hopefully avoid rearending someone so i think i still need to practise it though
