So with all that cash on a trailer going back completly blind the only thing to do is fit a reverse camera or 2 .
Its easy to reverse a trailer that you can see the sides of or the back of.
If i was backing that beut in to my drive i would also not be wanting to do it blind or letting the misses guide me back - 1 cock up and its not going to be cheap either
Ideally i would fit one camera on the top rear of the van so i could see the whole boat and one on the rear of the boat to see the o/b's - in reality you would only ever spend a second getting a quick reassurance from a camera then back using mirrors
90% of hgv's have reverse cameras for a reason and its not for full time reversing as they have bloody good mirrors for that
