I have decided to take the opportunity to enroll in an RV technical school and would like opinions on which school would be more beneficial, Camping World in Bowling Green, Kentucky or R.V.S.A. in Palmetto, Florida? Any feedback is appreciated as both classes are filling fast.

Gary,
As a graduate of RVSA (Jan - Mar 2003) I highly recommend it. The curriculum could use some updating, and I believe they are working on that. You will come out with a good solid base of knowledge to build on.
Caution: Don't go too crazy buying tools. You will be tempted, but should start by only buying what you NEED. Do buy the very best quality you can afford, though. That way you only cry once: when you pay for it, NOT every time you use it.

Any specific questions, email me.

L8r,
Steve

If I was looking for a tech to work on my coach or if I had a shop and was looking to hire; I would go with the R.V.S.A. tech.

I too will recommend the RVSA school in Palmetto, Fl. I have a tech working for me that is also a graduate and he has shown very good training.

I dont know about RV schools, but RV Wizard has helped me a lot with his knowledge and sujestions on my problems so what he says would be good enough for me!

I am however a Certified by FAA Airframe and Power Plant Mechanic and thought this RV stuff would be a breeze for me.......I was wrong!
I may attend an RV school myself in the future and it would be RVSA if I go.

Doug, thank you for the kind words. Before I attended the RVSA training I was in a similar industry with electronic, electrical and refigeration training and experience. I attended to get my certification and helped teach a few chapters. I am still trying to learn something everyday though.
