It explains basic rules so you can apply them to any vehicle you might drive.Driving a motorhome, especially for the first time can be very intimidating.

Review

I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!! Last Thursday, I just purchased an 08 Georgetown Forest River 373 37' 6". I had reviewed your dvd over and over again and again prior to this purchase and I wanted to say I was able to drive this beast off the lot and the next day drove from Maryland to Nags Head NC for 5 days of camping. I used your techniques and they worked as I found myself going through tunnels, rain, heavy traffic, and tight turns. I really wanted to say thank you. As a woman, the men at the campgrounds said to me you drove that big rig? I told them yes and it is easy. I also told them about your website too --Leila

This is a wonderful DVD to help you become aware of the
how and why of driving your RV.

I though this might help me park a little better and more
accurately, but this DVD was much more.

Really, if you're driving a 20 ton vehicle that costs as
much as a house, you should really know something about it.

My wife and I would love to drive a motorhome, but are hesitant about driving something so big. This disc is very helpful in showing that the average person can do it, and do it safely.

No substitute for behind-the-wheel training, of course, but I'm glad I bought it.

I disagree with the reviewer who said this is just a promotion for other products. There are 3 or 4 *quick* mentions of other products in this hour-long disc, but it's no big deal.

The video points out some problems you'll likely encounter driving a large RV for the first time and how to deal with those problems. Much of the video's information is pretty obvious, but preventing even a "small" problem while driving can save you a lot of money; much more money than this video costs. So it is well worth its cost.

Although somewhat basic, it's probably the basics that prospective RV buyers should understand before they get behind the wheel. This is a cheap investment considering the potentially disastrous consequences of making a bad turn.

I bought this just before I picked up my new motorhome. I have to say, it was really valuable, really informative and helped me really understand how to drive much more accurately than I might have without it. Mark makes it easy to see how to judge turning radius and line up lanes. After 4,000 miles of driving most of this becomes automatic but this was my first orientation and I really found it so useful.

Either I was a better driver than I realized or this video caters to the lowest common denominator. Advice included information such as watch cross streets for turning traffic and RVs take much longer to stop so anticipate accordingly. Some of the most helpful footage was the segment that they included in their free preview. I did take one extremely helpful tip away from the video about how to line up where your edges are, but not sure that was worth the fifteen dollars that I paid. The other factor that reduced number of stars was the very low-res recording. I watch plenty of dvds that look fine on a hi-def TV, but this video badly needs to be remastered to not look like it was produced in 1989 (which it well might have been).

Just upgraded from a travel trailer to a 35' motorhome and while I used my trailer extensively driving the motorhome is a very different experience. The tips for operating the motorhome safely and enjoying the experience are invaluable

IT is learning RVs the easy way. If you thought that you new everything about RVs, just watch this DVD series and relearn everything you thought you new. Great series, I have enjoyed the ones that I have and am planning to order the rest of them. The more knowledge the better. Do things the right way first.
