Tips for driving Winnebago era 170A

Seems like a silly question, but when I got my insurance, he wanted to know if I had a Class B license. So does any know what I should know about driving my new winny era 170A? I have a large van but I've never driven a vehicle this long. It does have back up camera's. Thanks!

What state are you in?
You should fill in the details of you motor home in the signature and at least the state you are in for your profile. Makes it easier to answer your questions.

I think you may need a new insurance agent. Most states you need a CDL if you go over 26,000 lbs. It doesn't matter what "class" your RV is.

Find a new insurance agent! We have a Class B Era 170C - no special license needed. Maybe your agent is confusing a Class B MH with a Class B license?? No relationship between the two.

As to driving, yeah, use the rear camera, but you'll find the mirrors on the Sprinter are great.
