I do try not to use ours where possible, where ever I can I try to reverse on and can usually get it roughly where I want it. I then use the mover to tweak it if needs be and line up the wheel for the wheel lock. It's handy to have though in case of getting stuck in some tight spot somewhere. We also keep our caravan at a storage yard where it has to be backed into a relatively tight space. Sometimes after a long trip my reversing mojo has gone out the window for some reason or another so I give up and use the motor mover having tried a few times and failed
As a relative newbie to caravanning I could do with more practise but its not that easy to do that so unfortunately most of my reversing is done when it needs to be.
It was really handy for returning the van to storage on my own in the past and as you say "tight between other vans".
I remember the days the mrs would dread returning from holiday and having to manhandle the old van up and over into the drive as her banksman qualities left a lot to be desired
Here's to and end to this lockdown crap and great caravan weather this year though
