Lazydays RV driver Confidence course

My Husband and took the RV driver Confidence Course at Lazydays, Tucson, Arizona. It was a great Course and if you ever get a chance to take it Please take advantage of it. My Husband has some health issues and wanted me to take it so in case of emergency i could drive. I have never drove our old coach and being that we got our new 2012 Tiffin Allegro Open Road it was on his list for me. Well for the first time in my life i drove a 45' Class A Pusher. I made left turns and right turns and did not hit anything. It was an amazing course and there were 12 in the group that took the class and were in the coach when i was driving. If you get the chance to take it please do it. By the way i am 4'10" and way about 100 lbs............Teri

Lazydays Confidence Course

Great Class--Course!! We took it May 2011 and bought our 1st Class A there July 30, 2011. My wife was 100% 'Confident' to drive a big Class A after that! I use the 'Dot System' on our S.Wind 32 each time we are out. Parking tips are The Best!! We were lucky to be in one of Barney's classes. He was the Grand Daddy of the class...and still has great tips on Lzdays web site!

I have to agree, I took it at Lazy Days in Florida, it was wonderful and I always use the tips Bob gave, I think everyone could learn something from it, Better take it while its free!

DH and I both took the class in Tucson. It was great. DH has driven fire engines, fire ladder trucks and those great big snow plows and he said he even learned something. I on the other hand learned a great deal. I too drove the
45 ft diesel pusher. If I can drive that our 29.1 foot should be a piece of cake.

How much actual drive time, you behind the wheel, do you get in the lazydays drivers confidence course?
Do you back into a "camp site" from both the left and right?

TIA

It depends on the number of people in the class as to how much time you get behind the drivers wheel. That being said you also learn by observing what the "driver" is doing and what the instructor is saying. It's a great
(currently free) course.
Do an internet search and you will find others you can do for a fee.
