Tomorrow my wife and I are going to take a ride to New Hampshire and look at an 18 foot Toy Hauler that is advertised on Craigs list. It is a 2003 eighteen foot Homesteader trailer. It has ac, microwave oven, cabinets, and the two beds fold up. We would like to go to a destination and camp at say a KOA or similar, and then ride around and explore the area. If we went on any trip with just the bike it could be a nightmare if, we encounter rain, inclement weather, traffic, etc. She can't do long rides so this option seems like a good alternative for us. Here's my problem. I have never towed anything in my life, let alone an eighteen foot trailer. I did recently buy a Ford F150 ( HD Edition, natch :s ) with the towing package because I thought I might want to get into doing this but I am concerned about towing. Can a normal guy learn to maneuver a trailer without too much difficulty? Is it that hard? What tips do I need to know? My plan is to drive it home ( if I buy it) and practice backing it up over and over again on my property before hitting the open road. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
