It must have taken a ton of practice, The guy in the car had his hands full. Going in reverse messes with the natural caster / camber of the steering. That said, Back in my Army days we would play with the 915's and a 40ft trailer and see how fast we could back them around a twisting course.

This kind of humor - messing with peoples' minds, shaking up their
paradigm - is right up my alley. I would love to have had a hand in
this. :-)

A few years ago, Chevrolet advertised their four wheel drive/four wheel steer pickups on TV. They showed a pickup backing up a trailer in a circle, around and around. To me, it looked immediately like they just reversed the recording. No way could they back up a trailer that way, four wheel steering or not. JMHO. Dave

Since we're off topic about trailers, how many of you know about "trailer racing"? The object is to finish with some part of your trailer still attached to the hitch, and finish first of course! http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=trailer+racing&qpvt=trailer+racing&view=deta il&mid=9CEE4AED1492B7E3D5489CEE4AED1492B7E3D548&FORM=VRDGAR

I hate backing trailers unless I really take my time. My dad tells me slow down and it's easier and he is right. I surely could be doing anything like the video at the top.. Tim

OK. it's faked insofar as there's a driver in the trailer and possibly it's speeded up a bit too. Their not proving anything as far as a new back up system is concerned though. Unless their selling trailers with drivers in them. The absolutely best tip I ever got for backing up a trailer is to put one hand on the bottom of the steering wheel. The direction your hand swings (rt. or lft.) is the way the tail of the trailer is going to go. Totally amazing & K.I.S.S. to boot.

The trailer is really the front part of a Jetta placed backwards. The trailer is towing the car and the driver is in the trailer facing backwards. I think the rear door is transparent from the inside, complete fake...... Advertising something or other....

I think the picture was taken driving forward. Then it was reversed to make it look as though they were backing up.

I didn't get to see the video (dial-up internet), but my Dad always amazed me; we have a family resort that used to rent overnight & short stay trailer spaces (still have them, but seldom used). Now the resort is a wooded area, but each space had a nice concrete pad to serve as a "front porch" for the trailer. Some space have a tree growing near the front of the parking area. My Dad could stand next to the driver's door, and talk the person (if he followed the directions)right into that space, with the trailer parallel to the patio and the tree just clearing the trailer's tongue!
Sadly, this ability was NOT inherited by me!

I had a big eight foot wide sloped nose Hallmark and had to park it on a nine and a half foot wide curving driveway and then between the house and a seven foot high wall. I had a hitch welded to the front of our truck and it was very easy to push that trailer up the driveway with that rig.

Good grief - a savvy director could have staged the scenes and reversed the film for a lot less money.

You can tell the car driver is either over-correcting or under-correcting the turns by all the squealing tires noise.

Many years ago, I was making a living driving an oilfield truck, 40' pipe, derrick sections, all of the above with no trailer brakes and etc. I thought I was pretty good, till I saw an old boy in North Dakota backing a triple (tractor plus three (3) trailers). He came in off the highway and backed up to a loading dock at a feed store and never pulled up to correct, didn't think it was possible
