Because our Coaches are very likely

the largest vehicle any of us will ever

drive, I went looking on the 'Net for

information.

I found a site to link to, the written

info from a Discovery Coach Owners site,

where the class was driver instruction.

Of real interest is the fact that the info

is generic, it works for all big Coaches,

tips and tricks, 45 and 50-degree wheel

cuts.

There are several intities that offer classroom and hands on driving instructions around the country. We should ask those on the forum that have used them what they have learned and compare these different trainers to each other. Eddie, thanks for the link.

HERE is a link to Jane and John Canfield's "rv page" where they discuss their personal experience with Dick Reed's driving school in Florida.

A real good read...

On one of our Florida visits, we made a date at Lazy Days in Sefner, they have a one day driving school. Classroom in morning and hands on in afternoon. I highly recommend it to one and all.
I don't think I would be driving (5yrs now) if I had not taken that course.

Dick Reed's "RV School" gives lessons at several locations nationwide is is highly regarded by their graduates. The ladies seem to be particularly impressed with the quality of the course and the confidence it gives them. There is a short version of the course for those wo feel they just need some tips and techniques work and a full version for those that need to build up skills and experience. Prices are reasonable.

See http://www.rvschool.com/

I am not associated with the school in any way - just passing on what I have seen reported over the last several years on multiple RVing web sites.
