Re: Can you reverse a Car & Trailer?
Have done a few times in the past. VW LT 28 with a similar length trailer on the back. The trick is to not over-steer. Small inputs, well timed, as you only need to change the angle of the car very slightly to get a much bigger change in direction on the trailer.
Only a personal thing, but I try to keep the van as close to straight on from the trailer as possible, even when turning a corner with it, it gives you more scope for change. If you get the trailer at a large angle there's only one way to change it's direction: go forwards again.
