Default I didn't think of this

When staying hooked up, you can level right to left with the level blocks sold at all camping stores. Just put them under the trailer tires as needed. What took me along time to think about was that those same leveling blocks could be put under the tow vehicle to help level the trailer front and back, especially when at a a site with no hook ups. Since you don't have to worry about which side has the hook ups, pull into the site with the front of the trailer low and place level blocks to raise the rear of the tow vehicle until the trailer is level. I used this on a trip to Alaska when we had time limitations and unfortunately had to make a lot of miles in a day.

Default Yes you can, just be on level ground

I have done this several time in the short time I have owned mine. One time at 2am (don't ask) I pulled it into driveway to open it while attached. Due to the slope I had a difficult time getting the front shell closed up.

I have a short draw bar so it was pretty close to SUV, but gravity was the real problem, especially with the 200lb air conditioner. I ended up with a lovely shoulder size dent in the lift gate of my new to me Traverse. So from now on I will only open on relatively level ground. In fact I did this the mornin I left on vacation. Pulled it into he street and opened it.
