What about a diesel pusher?
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.
Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

I used one for several years with a heavy trailer and loved it. There is an extra swivel point that takes some getting used to.
Backing on flat surfaces is not a problem. My driveway is 90 degrees to a sharply crowned street this results in a pretty big dip. Because of that I would disconnect the trailer on the street and back it in to my driveway with my pickup. I would say i got used to parking in places that minimized backing up. Still do even without it.
Small hassle considering 99% of the time we are moving forward and it worked very well for that.
I run a 34 DP with a 30ft trailor,3k door car and cart, went to a toad last year and will never run without one again.
Without question you will need a Trailer Toad.I used one for over 10 years with a 35' Pace Arrow Gas pulling a 24' Haulmark. Give Jok at Trailer Toad a call, he'll steer you in the right direction.
My Buddy uses one behind his 34'class A. Tows great. Backing up is a pain because you need to put pins in it to keep it from swiveling when backing. He just trys to park without backing it up when he can.
He just purchased a new motor home that doesn't need it. So he may sell it.
I will relay my story on the Trailer Toad.
I didn't think I needed one on my large diesel pusher but the wife insisted. Put it on, drove 70,000 miles without an issue.
One day I put myself in a very bad situation when I entered a parking lot and had to back out at extreme angles. I got lazy, I should have removed one of both of the tires because it was a full angle backup for over 100 feet. There were dips and the tires dug in and damaged the hitch.
I had to remove the Toad to connect the stacker trailer direct to the motor home. Then I was lazy again, didn't put it back on in a timely fashion. Within 6 months Cracks started to form under the slideouts on both sides of the motor home because I didn't put it back on.
I bought another motor home, similar to the old one. The Trailer Toad won't ever come off again. I now have nearly 90k miles on this coach without an issue.
I travel all over the country, many roads are just horrible. It saves my coach all that punishment.
Only maintenance I do is grease the wheel bearings twice a year and replace the shocks at 60k.
