Visual Aid for straight line backing

So school is going very well, Thanks to the High Road Training Program. And we will be working with instructors in the truck starting next week.

It looks as though we will be working on straight line backing to start. My question is, What do most drivers keep their eye on when backing?

Obviously the trailer and cones/dock. But is there a more specific part of the trailer? And as far as mirrors, Obviously you want to use all out in the real world for safety reasons, but in an empty parking lot just to get between the cones could I primarily focus on my driver side side mirrors?

Thanks, I appreciate any suggestions

I will be attending a driving program later this summer at a community college. But in the meantime I'm wanting to practice my backing skills. Without having any experience w/ backing or pulling a trailer, would it be a good idea to maybe rent a trailer from a Uhaul?
