The honest answer is this, a Trailer that is shorter in length including the draw bar will always will be more difficult to reverse with.
It can be mastered as everything can, the key is when reversing with a short Trailer is not to let the Trailer go too far out of line if of coarse you are reversing in a straight line.
If you relax & keep the steering to small gentle movement when correcting this will help inormously.
If you are making really big steering wheel corrections due to the Trailer snaking from side to side then you reversing technique is not a good one.
A good tip is normally to steer in the opposite direction that you wish the Trailer to head but this can just complicate your thinking if you dwell on it too much.
Nice & steady is the key, if you find you have gone back a little too far & the Trailer is too far off straight too continue your reverse then simply pull forward again to straighten up & start you reverse again.
It really is practice makes perfect with reversing a Trailer, a large LGV Trailer is far easier to reverse in a straight line that a 5 foot Trailer.
just remember this, there is no rush, just take your time.
