Do they even teach reverse at " truck driving school" anymore?

CDL test requires backing in straight line, backing into another lane, and backing into a loading dock. An optional backing test is parallel parking. Backing on a "test" course is easier than real world. That is why I want a short trailer but I have been told short trailers have their issues too.

The trick is the truck being shorter than the trailer.

My MH has a short wheelbase so hopefully it will not be too difficult. Hopefully I will not have to back-up too often.
