Backing up your RV is one of the tricky parts of camping. Each campground you visit has a different configuration to navigate. There are some steps to take in backing up that will make it easier for you and increase your chances of success the first time.
Survey the Site – Look the site over to give yourself bearings on where you’d like to park your rig. Make sure nothing is scattered on the grown that could be run over.
Move Slowly – Taking your time is very important. If you find yourself rushing you’ll probably also find yourself making multiple attempts at getting backed in.
Have a Guide – Have someone standing outside within view of your mirror. They can give you hand signals to lead you in. Some people like to use radios for communicating with each other, too.
Keep to the Driver’s Side – That is your best vantage point for using your mirror and getting yourself into your site without problems.
Practice – The more you can practice before actually setting out on your first road trip, the better. Find a parking lot and practice backing in between the lines. The more you do this the more comfortable you will feel in your rig. Each RV has its own nuances and the more familiar you become with your rig the better you will do.
We hope your RVing days are long and happy and we hope that every effort at backing your rig in is a successful one.
