Don't be afraid to ask for help from any camper......you will find most of us willing to lend a hand!!!

They do have pull through. Or is that pullthrough/pullthru/pull-thru?

If you are not familiar with backing up campers, dont worry, take it in stride. I laugh about burning a half a tank of gas moving it 3 inches over........ I second the don't be afraid to ask for help. A lot of time it can be obvious who may benefit from a helping hand.
My family loves to help out when we see someone struggling with something. Even my son may help by keeping their kids entertained while the parents park their unit. We have had occasional "less than optimal" experiences and if we can take a few minutes to help someone have a good time, we will.
In no time, you will be the one helping the next new guy wearing out his transmission shifter. Have fun. We are off to Alex Bay this weekend.

Bring a pair of walkie-talkies. Makes it a lot easier to talk to the person helping to back you in. Saves a lot of yelling and are really great when backing in at night. The really cheap ones aren't the best because others near you may be on the same frequency. I bought a pair of rechargeable Cobras with multiple channels for about $50 online. Still married after 20 years of camping.

yes walkie's work great.Another tip I learned on a video, when guiding the driver do not use left and right, use driver side/ pass side, less confusing.The first time out with our trailer I had a pull thru with a concrete pad with a picnic table that I needed to get close to.Took me a bit, the guy in the next site had a new truck.Monica told me later that he ran for his keys and told his wife that he was going for a ride!

Yes, they are. We live in Virginia and have attended the Buttonwood rally and this September will be at Nick's Lake for the Adirondack M&G.
To meet them, all you have to do is put your camper on the highway and point it north. Most of the SOCs are north of the Mason-Dixon Line. So you have to go up north to see them in their natural habitat, or try to ambush them one at a time as they drift South down I-95 to Myrtle Beach, Savannah, and Florida. That can get tricky.
You could meet a few in Virginia October 9-11 at Shenandoah State Park.
