Thumbs down Similar to Boot Camp?

So, hope to pick up my first MH (class a DP) this weekend. Was hoping that DW and I could attend the upcoming Escapees Boot Camp in November as we both have lots to learn. Both weekends are totally full. Since we live in Texas, Boot Camp would have been convenient, but is there anything else in the marketplace similar to Boot Camp that I may not be aware of?

First and foremost in Texas you will need, as a minimum, a Non-CDL Class B driver's license to be legal to drive. This requires both a written test and driving test in your coach. I suggest Seguin or Uvalde as DPS testing sites as the towns are smaller and traffic is not so bad. Several of us in this area have solicited the services of a licensed school bus driver for training. I suggest that you do a search of Texas "Non CDL Class B License" in the Class A forum and you should find several threads on the subject. I know there are several fairly recent threads specific to the San Antonio area that should be helpful. In addition, there are some excellent "lazy Days" driver videos on You tube that helped me a lot.

Other than that, you may be able to find a Class A owner locally to help you out. I don't know of any professional services in the area.

Good Luck and congratulations on your new coach.

If your still interested in RV driver training here is a school that has a number of instructors in Texas. I'm planning to contact them for my wife.
