How to Drive a Motorhome/RV — Driving Tips: Off-Tracking & Rear Overhang

Turning an RV’s steering wheel creates a couple of situations that require special attention. 3DR Solo aerial footage makes it clearer than ever what happens when you go around a corner with an RV!

We always make a point of mentioning that we’re not professionals when it comes to RV repair and maintenance. We get lots of kind comments about the clarity of our instructional videos, and people sometimes assume at least one of us has a teaching background. That is indeed the case.

For the first time, we can remove the “we’re not professionals” disclaimer, because one of us Geeks is indeed a former professional… in the driving realm.

Peter’s resume as a motorcoach operator and driving instructor is substantial. Not only did he drive tour buses in a big city, but he was also the Safety & Training Manager for one of the largest bus companies in North America. He designed and ran the training program, hiring and training hundreds of professional drivers, and dozens of driving instructors, over the years.

In addition, his driving prowess in the American Public Transit Association’s annual Bus Roadeo driving competition earned him a shelf full of trophies.

We intend for this to be the first of many RVgeeks Driving School videos, designed to share the concepts required to master the operation of a large vehicle, and increase safety on the road. We get so many questions about driving, that we thought it was about time we shared something from a bona fide expert’s point of view.

Full-Time RVers since April, 2003, we share DIY (do it yourself) RV maintenance, repair, travel, upgrade and operational tips & tricks.

Many RVers are eager to learn more about using, maintaining and caring for their rigs. We hope our experience can help others go DIY, saving time & money, plus the satisfaction of a job well done.

We’re handy RVers, not professional technicians. We’re happy with the techniques and products we use, but be sure to confirm that all methods and materials you use are compatible with your equipment and abilities. Regardless of what we recommend, consult a professional if you’re unsure about working on your RV. Any task you perform or product you purchase based on any information we provide is strictly at your own risk.
