Well that's awesome then!
I had never owned a trailer before either (camping or otherwise).
First thing I did after driving it off the lot was take it to a large empty parking lot and pull it around and back it up and attempt (and fail many times) to turn into a parking spot while backing. This was one of my biggest fears, honestly. Not hitting anything necessarily, but looking like a "typical" female driver that doesn't know what she's doing! I took it out a few more times to a different empty lot for practice and now have lots more confidence. I can park it in my back-in only storage spot without help now! (go me!)
Just new to trailers ... or new to RVs in general?
Lots of folks around here are SUPER helpful and there is a lot of information available already, just use that search bar. I don't want to think about how many hours I've spent simply browsing! If you can't find your answer, post ... or feel free to message me.
Also ... YouTube has been great as well. Helped me create that "I need" list before my first trip.
