Hitching your RV up is a pain, especially if it’s just you doing the hitching, having to get out of the car multiple times just to gauge how much further you need to back up. With two people, you have confusing hand signals and lots of screaming and yelling, “TURN THE WHEEL LEFT, NO!!! I MEAN YOUR OTHER LEFT!”
This is where technology makes our lives easier. There are a couple of back-up sensor and camera systems that I recommend, and right now, until March 10th, they’re on sale! The Smart Hitch & the Swift Hitch are both great solutions to help you hitch up your RV and get outta town. Be sure and sign up for our email updates and be informed of all of our sales and deals.
