    Default Any trailer "simulation" software?

    I presently have a Hudson 12K trailer, 24' end to end, and a Ford F350 CC dually 21' end to end. One of my considerations in getting a new enclosed trailer is parking. One place I have to park it is in my 2 car driveway on a suburban court where the road is about 22' wide between curbs and the neighbors are pretty picky about running over the curb on their lawn. Consequently I usually use my B7610 to park/unpark the Hudson and have used a Toyota Rav4 my son had, but sold. I just cannot make the angles avoiding obstructions like mailboxes to park it with my 21' truck.

    I'm in the market for a new enclosed 7' wide trailer 12' to 18' long and got to thinking (dangerous) is there any simulation or game where I could put in the dimensions so I could "practice" parking trailers of various lengths? Obviously the 12' would park easiest.

    no help on a simulator, but it seams as a short trailer is harder to back but in your situation I can see where you may need a short trailer
