Which one of you drives the RV.

My dw is petrified to drive our mh but I see plenty of couples traveling with the wife behind the wheel. Its not like it takes testosterone to drive one so was just curious if most couples share the drive time or are more like us and rely on just one for all the driving.
I personally don't mind as I'm comfortable behind the wheel and as nervous as she gets even riding shotgun at times I would be a wreck with her driving. She has no desire and i'm okay with that. What about you?

I do the majority of the driving and DW will give me a two hour break if it is going to be a long day. The break is nice and I am rested for my second "shift". When I worked there were times she would take the rig to our destination and I would fly down when my vacation started. She would prefer not to do city or tight space driving, but she is perfectly capable.

When we got our RV she wanted to learn how to drive it. A friend's Husband broke his right ankle and could not drive it home his wife drove it and she made it. So I took it in bites, like we did the switch out in rest areas away from big towns then off the interstate switched out and I drove to the gas pumps. Then she got brave one time and pulled into the gas pumps and then pulled away ! Now we share the driving funny thing is that she seems to alway's get the construction zones with the concrete barriers. I am proud of her she does an excellant job of driving our RV. And That is 34 foot Storm with Toad!

I've been told not to get sick or die. The DW will not drive the MH. She would not drive the F150/33' TT either. She has driven the F150 by itself when it was necessary. She is fully capable and if pushed I'm hoping she would. For now, it is not worth the arguement so I drive.

Unrelaxed I like it! Because that's what I would be, I am going to teach her how to at least get it parked somewhere just in case of an emergency.

I do all the driving although I hate to admit it but she's better at backing up than I am (I like to think that it's because I'm also better at giving directions )

Now that we have a DP, it's pretty much a moot point anyway since I'm the only one that's licensed to drive it anyway (need air brake endorsement and straigth truck driver license (D class) in Ontario)

Sandee is very capable also...I just LOVE to drive it and she would rather do other stuff.

I do all the driving mostly because I get motion sick easily if someone else drives, in any vehicle. DW on the other hand has a commercial licence and drives school buses for a living, so I'm sure she would be fine with the MH and horse trailer. In fact she uses it around the homestead to ride with friend during the day while I'm working and I've never come home to any "modifications" to the rigs.

I do all the driving. DH does not feel comfortable driving our MH and if she's not comfortable she will not be relaxed. That opens a lot of doors where things could go wrong. Besides I love to drive it.
