    We enjoy all your videos! Love learning from you. Please keep up the great work. Our trailer is pre-wired for a Furrion system, too expensive, your a Halo-view seems to be a better option! Safe travels, Robert/Donna, in Southern California.

    Superb advice! Makes me want to pull out my maps and plan something.

    Ive developed the habit of carefully scouting parking lots for the exits, before I enter. I won’t describe the episode that led to this habit…but backing up in a busy shopping centre lot isn’t something you EVER want to have to do!

    5:50 I love Gas Buddy! There's been more than one occasion it's saved me $.20 a gal by driving less than a mile from the exit. Here's hoping they put a notation about how high the overhangs are in the stations.

    A backup camera is invaluable. I had to turn around with my 32' trailer because the GPS sent us down a crazy route. It saved my bacon on that for sure.

    Great advice, however, you mentioned how far ahead you look (8:00) when pulling your trailer and then you said you look a shorter distance when driving your car. I would recommend that you look far ahead in both vehicles, especially going through curves. Analyze "traffic dynamics" early (former race driving school director).

    I recommend that one follows the U-Haul Company strategy, by placing height stickers on each side of your Fifth Wheel that you can see in your side mirrors to remind you of your true height.
    And be mindful that the posted heights are Grade at Time. Due to road repaving, the current height might be off by a few inches.
    Also be mindful that Snow Covered Roads are going to affect the available current height as well.

    Great tips, thanks! I'm not a pro RVer but I think I'm sort of a pro traveler so I'll add #1 the best time to travel is when other people aren't (choose to drive off-peak hours) and #2 audiobooks are the best… especially anything read by Jim Dale!

    Really like our Haloview rear camera. We have the 5' screen, mounted it to the rear view mirror with 2 elastic hair ties. Not obtrusive, easy on and off.

    Great info! I have an RV YouTube channel also, so I'm super excited to see what the colleagues are up to. Subbed your channel.

    What is the make and model of your RV? Really nice looking interior.

    I also use the WAZE app. It will also give you your mph. My speedometer in some of my autos aren’t correct so this app comes in handy. Thank you for your great videos. Love um.

    Thanks again for your videos…I really enjoyed some of these tips…it's so tricky! I have a tight gate and narrow road to get back home, so I bought a little truck and trailer, added a pipe cleaner extension to make it to scale, and marked off the size of the road and width of the gate, then practiced backing it in, and watching how the rig moved.
