Help w/RV School instructors experience?

Schedules aren't working for us to get our RV School
Driving training from the most recommended guy in the OH/MI area

Does anyone have any experience learning from Terry Bacus in Columbus OH or Jim Arner in Buffalo NY?

I hate to take the rig all the way to TX without good instruction.

We should be picking it up 1st or 2nd week of October in Grand Rapids MI.

Any other highly recommended instructors in OH/ S MI/ W PA or W NY?

I'm not sure who your looking at, but we used RV School and the local instructor for the Seattle area was Loren Walsh and he was excelent. it was great for both my wife and I. I'm sure all there instructors across the country are good.

I commend you for wanting to learn to drive your RV before heading out. Check out Youtube. There's a bunch of good videos there.

Agreed. Everything you need to know can be found on YouTube. Look for the driver confidence course by LazyDays. It's excellent and covers all you need to know.

I had my wife watch it as well. With a little bit of road time she was fine, including highways, wide turns, tight turns, neighborhood roads, etc.

It will ultimately come down to how you are most comfortable learning, but the you tube videos - be selective because some are utterly useless - can be both a big knowledge and confidence booster.

All the best!
