Garage idea

Being of an ever advancing age and deteriorating eyesight, I have been having difficulty backing our Sunline into the Toy Box without a director. Today after winterizing it following our Branson trip I decided to do something to assist with the backing in part. I did some measuring, masking and painting and look here.

Neat idea Paul.

On our other camper that would fit in the shed, at night was actually easier to back in the camper. The lighted shed showed me the way. During the day it was so bright out that backing in was dark inside from the truck mirrors. In this case I put a clip light on the back wall as a marker so I knew where I was going to hit something.

This is something we did at the last two fire houses I volunteered at. Made it much easier to back in straight. We also anchored concrete parking curbs at the rear wheels to keep from backing into the walls. Yes, new trucks in old buildings a half inch made a big difference!!!
