Yup that should get rid of any confusion seeing as starboard refers to the steering side of the boat which happens to be the right side.[emoticon]

Confusing.......So I am backing my trailer in to a campsite. My wife shouts at me to turn more right. I frantically turn my truck more right and my 5ver hits the tree on the left. In this case starboard or port won't help ME either.

Me Again,
To correct you on nautical terms Red is right side returning from sea
Port and left has 4 letters
right and starboard has UNEVEN letters thence uneven numbers
When piloting a vessel (boat/ship) you occupy the left side and pass on the right
Simple law of navigation on the sea/waterways
Dis-obey and get run over.
### ever notice most boats wheel is in the middle or right side???

Your analysis is correct

Rightside...passenger side....Curbside
Leftside....drivers side......Roadside


Just try and put a 'rightside' brake assembly on the leftside (roadside) of trailer. It will be backwards!

I know I am a little late on this, but by facing the direction of forward travel from behind said vehicle powered or not would determine right or left side. JMO
