View Full Version : Are you comfortable with parking your big rig?

I'm comfortable parking my coach but I have gotten into more than a few tricky, sticky, hairy situations. We all know our coaches don't bend like a fifth wheel or pull right in and out like a smaller rig. We need plenty of swing room to get in and out of spaces. and I'm sure most of us have gotten into some tight situations but with a little patience taking it slow we will get out and let's hope with no damage! Right?

Are you comfortable parking your big rig?

Kinda - sorta. Recently backed into a fence, but I am getting better. Dragging the tag over curbs is my problem.

We have taken the coach over a few curbs and knocked down a few trash cans. :blushing:

:o Very comfortable it's no big deal once you get the hang of it. :thumbsup:

It's no big deal for me, but then again I have a lot of experience behind a tractor trailer combination. For others I can see where it is intimidating until you get the hang of it.

Recently drove over about 100 new plastic poles just install at a mall parking lot. NOT MY FAULT!:argue:

Comfortable? Yes. But it doesn't mean I don't make mistakes. :laugh:

I screw up and scrape or hit something :banghead: but lucky for me not to often. But it does happen :thumbdn:

Yes I'm comfortable parking my coach. In the beginning when we first bought the coach it was very intimidating. However, once you get a few years under your belt your judgement gets better.

I haven't backed into anything. Knock on wood.
