    Clown What is harder?

    Backing up a trailer?
    Backing up a grooming van?

    That is the only thing worrying me about going someday. Not joking but you can laugh at me, I deserve it.

    Neither if you practice.
    Ain't always easy to stand up for what is right.

    Backing up a van is just like backing up your car. My WGT has a back-up camera which helps a lot. Backing up a trailer is a "learned" tricky business.

    Yes, backing a trailer is harder......but if you do it every day it just becomes 2nd nature.

    Definitely trailers are harder and I don't like it LOL> If i was doing a trailer I would want a short bed truck and a small trailer. Something about it I just hate. My van I felt comfortable pretty quick. But as Cyn says it takes practice. That being said, a lot less practice for vans than trailers for me> I admire people that handle those trailers to quickly.

    I found the bigger the trailer the easier it is to put where I want. Sometimes bigger is better!
    Learning curve with a van would of course be shorter.

    Yes, the longer the trailer, the easier it is to back.

    I didn't have so much of a problem backing up a trailer when I could turn around and see out the back window, especially the cab window in truck. But if I don't have that view, it was an obstacle. Fortunately when I bought a mobile biz it came with an elite. Still wish I could see out a back window if it had one, but I have done well with practice. So I still say it is easier for me to do a van and backup camera.
