    That's a very nice trailer! You are going to love it.
    Practice becoming an expert "backer-upper." : ) Beats learning on the go.

    Thanks everyone.

    Yes, I am very happy with finding this one. Sure, I could have gotten a cheaper smaller bumper pull stock or whatever ..... But this is the type of trailer I wanted, and I knew I was just going to regret and want to upgrade if I didn't get what I wanted from the get-go.

    And I am a horrible backer-upper, haha. It might take me a couple tries to back a 90 degree angle if I have to, but usually I'll get it eventually! I mostly just try to park where I don't have to back up, haha.

    I totally agree with getting what you want the first time if you can! We had to upgrade less than a year later. That's a nice trailer though!

    LOL, that sounds like me last year when I had started pulling our trailer.

    Me too. But I was getting better but haven't towed it lately...Most of the time I don't have to back it in..The advantage of having a trucker hubby. If he can back a 53ft trailer this 28ft isn't anything...

    LOL my husband has his CDL license too. The CDL test is just crazy.....

    But he's non-horsey so he usually won't be with. I outta do some practice with him though. Wouldn't be a bad idea.

    Good Luck Mine has yelled at me before... Forget over what with driving...But I also told him I did it before I met cha..... I'm use to getting the LQ ready for a trip and all that goes with it..He actually gets in my way at times.But he wants to help and learn..But then again he is a bull in a china shop...

    I was lucky to have a large field at a trailhead where I could practice backing up-that helped a lot. At home I had to back into a gate off a busy road, then "keyhole" it into a narrow space on the side of the house. So not fun, but I got pretty good at it if hubby wasn't around to yell at me.
