Backing that boat behind the 5th wheel is actually not that hard, it just takes practice, practice, practice. What's impressive in the video is that it's night time on a narrow street and very close quarters. What Larry L did at UPS is much more impressive, as he is actually backing 3 trailers at once (2 28' trailers and a converter gear, which basically is a 6-8' trailer used to connect the two pups together. I was in the LTL freight industry for nearly 40 years and while quite a few of us could back a pup and a converter gear wherever we wanted to, I only witnessed a set of pups being backed into a door twice, and they probably took more time than splitting the set would have.
