I'm having an issue picking up cargo at Norbert Dentressangle in Zwolle.
The loading bay is in a place made for a single trailer whilst I'm towing a double.
It would be nearly impossible to reverse into there with a double.
I don't know if it's a problem just for me or if it's a problem to more.
The problem can be seen in the picture below.

It looks like there's more than enough space. Could you maybe record a video when trying to reverse there?

Maybe somebody else could try as well.

Reversing with doubles requires some skills, which I don't have personally, so I won't even try it.

have a look into your ingame settings. there are some options for parking.
i never get a spot like that with a double/tandem. ;)

I normally don't either, it's always drive straight in and straight out again.
I've tried skilled parking and safe parking and both options give me this very skilled option and I'm not skilled enough to start reversing a double trailer.

I don't have that skill either, so that's why the double trailer spots are normally in a place where no reversing is required.
I get that with skilled parking selected this could be an option, but I also tried safe parking because i wasn't going to try reversing this monstrosity, but even then it's in the same spot.

Same here, I always use skilled parking and it's always drive straight in and straight out, I never had to reverse in.
But I thought maybe this is Promods making the skilled parking more difficult. So then I tried safe parking but it was still the same spot, this is why I think it's a bug.

Hard parking on Tandem is always reversing, but when using easy parking, it should be just a drive in without reversing

Have I just been very lucky then, that I never had to reverse a double on skilled parking?
And how come that Rudi also never had to reverse on skilled parking?

You've to enabkle skilled parking on doubles, with a Config Variable, otherwise it's greyed out and not selectable. But I don't know which one it was.
