    Agreed with Nick, this the number one rule. If you as the the driver can’t see the helper in the mirrors then stop.

  2. John Bradbury says:

    Always worth reinforcing these types of tips as complacency can prove expensive as well as ruining an otherwise pleasant motorhome experience. We have a dog leg shaped large driveway with 4 family cars and we always have two people to ensure a safe reversing between vehicles to avoid damage to cars or motorhome.

    Excellent article. Suggest for all reverse times change one of white reverse bulbs with a lite and built in beeper bulb.
    Secondly,helps a lot if helper (banksman)holds hands up when a meter from obstacles and mimicks the closing distance by bringing hands closer together!

  4. Nick says:

    Never stand behind a reversing vehicle, or in the place to which it is reversing. Stay in sight of the driver at all times if helping someone reverse – and agree hand signals beforehand. Drivers, when reversing a scream or frantic slaps on your bodywork usually mean STOP NOW!
