Generally speaking, putting the car on backward will maintain the proper 
tongue weight on the trailer so as to prevent swerve and sway....providing 
of course
there is an engine in the car.

Really it's a matter of how the car is parked, it's basically pointed 
straight ahead next to the carport, I can easily back the trailer up to the 
rear of the car.  Turning it around is doable, but it's quite a bit more
