Go to an office parking lot on a Sunday when there are no cars and practice, practice, practice. Work on your skills before you need them.

Be aware though that the ball is going to be REAL greasy so after removing the trailer you either need to remove it or cover it with something (I use a 16 oz water bottle with the bottom cut out). Otherwise it will attract dirt and pants legs.

Mine seems to have a real taste for shins.

now i just need to learn how to steer in reverse.
Nice looking trailer.

As to the steering, don't overthink. Steer the wheel in the direction you want it to go. That's all you have to do. Works looking over your shoulder and in the mirrors. And lots of practice. In time you'll be able to parallel park that sucker like a champ!
