I'm great at backing up I can back up a 7 x 14 trailer at 20 mph down my dead end road. I have a 2000 f350 with leaf springs on the front and the crew cab with the 8 ft bed. I have to back up sometimes w/o a trailer on a cul-de-sac. These never trucks have coil springs which have a much better turning radius.

Real towing mirrors are really nice when it comes to pulling a 8 to 8.5 foot enclosed trailer, camper, whatever. If you dont have the wide towing mirrors you are going to have a rough time backing up... Otherwise, backing up by cranking your head around and looking out the rear window?: come on... That's not the way to do things. Learn to back up with your mirrors, period.

Yes I know the OP isn't the one with the backing up problem...
