You never tried to back up a wagon? It shouldn't be tough at all to back up this setup.
You ever tried to back up a wagon with a box truck. Way harder than a tractor or regular pickup.

Not to mention the second swivel point on the gooseneck. Yikes! Yes, backing that up would be difficult

Can't say that I have with a box truck. I have done it lots with pickup with the box stacked with 60 small bales of hay hanging out over the edge forcing you to use the mirrors. Also done the tractor/baler/wagon combo many times.

That was my point of a wagon, 2 pivots... 1 pivot at the hitch, 1 at the steering. Slow and steady. Difficult bordering on impossible for average folk but should be easy for the average farmer. I guess you guys have never watched a transport driver back up a set of B Trains either.

Got greedy and tired to get 1.5 loads of green birch out of the woods in 1. Made it too top heavy and over she went when the left side tire dipped in a hole.

Sometimes, in rough country, you have a side dump trailer.
