How do you feel about RV drivers being required to be tested and or schooled and issued a special license? Why do you feel that way?

Hi there

I feel that if you are towing something as long as an 18 wheeler there should be additional training/licensing required re: parking, turning, weight issues, backing up. Commercial truckers are required to take extensive training prior to hauling and I feel it should be ensured that RVers have a basic knowledge about how to handle a rig. Having said that, most people who haul would have no problem getting this implemented but I agree with Dalsgal...we see many people come in to our park and hit things and back over things because they don't have the skills necessary.

I also feel every woman should be able to drive a truck with a trailer on it or their motorhome just in case....I'm guilty of NOT driving mine and a goal for me is to learn. You never know when your partner will be unable to drive and you will have to.

I have been telling my wife that for years. She says that she will learn real quick then. I did get her to drive about 100 yards in a parking lot once, but no more. I think RV dealer foster the idea that there is nothing to it. We rented a 27 foot Class A before we bought our first motor home and I was scared to death. I looked up some short videos on the internet, but back then, it was not as extensive as today. I think if you had to pay and then take a course of some type, a lot of people would be diswayed. It is not only the driving, but all of the interior systems that folks don't have a clue about.
