    Hi. My husband and i just purchased a 2005 Flagstaff popup. We live outside of St. Louis MO and have so much to learn. We're nearing retirement years which will give us time to travel but I'm the main driver and I'm not at all skilled at backing up. But I study YouTube and practice. Hopefully i will get there. Thanks to everyone who post on here I've learned so much already.

    Welcome from Dukes Fl. Congrats on the NTU PUP, best way to learn to back is go slow and practice, practice, practice. it helps to place your hand on the bottom of the steering wheel and move your hand just a little bit (do not over do )in the direction you want the trailer to go, Good Luck and happy Camping

    Hello and Welcome from central PA!
    I agree with nineoaks2004, patience and practice. Don't get down on yourself if it takes 2 3 or 12 attempts to get the trailer backed in. We all and I mean everyone of us had to learn and practice to get where we are. Some may have picked up on it faster than other and some not so quick but you will get there!
