    ok i have a 21 ft boat that i trailer and keep in my driveway. i can get it in but its a pain in the a$#. im looking for an easier way. maybe a power dolly to do it by hand? or a trailer hitch on front of my truck so i can see where im going instead of backing it in. does anyone have any tricks ot ideas? what about a polaris 500 with a front hitch....

    Did you let your husband try to park it? Don't want to stereotype or say you can't do it because you're a woman, but men are normally better at driving than women especially when it comes to parking or towing

    Practice practice practice.

    Keep your hand at 6o'clock on the steering wheel, move your hand the way you want the back of the trailer to go.

    Don't over-correct

    Try to keep the truck and trailer in-line(except for sharp turns.

    Don't be afraid to straighten out and start over.

    you need to be able to back it up on the ramp loading and unloading, sometimes in crazy traffic. dedicate a few hours before the season and practice
