RV's are not the easiest thing to drive. Was following a rather large one several years back on Interstate 55. The road was heavily rutted from the big trucks. RV was probably doing about 70. It's wheels didn't fit the ruts too good and it got to rocking back and forth in the ruts. Both back wheels came completely off the ground (not at the same time of course) and it almost turned over before the poor guy got it under control. He drove much slower after that. Probably had to change his underwear also.

Husker About those RV's    Posted 06-25-2004 at 06:28:31       [Reply]  [No Email]
I drive a 33 ft. RV and when the wind blows, (that's every time I turn the key!), it's a real challenge. I agree that an endorsement to drive a rig over 20 ft is appropriate.

Actually in Ny you do need an endorsment on your license to drive some of the larger ones off the interstates, I don't know the size limit of the vehicle or the requirements on the driver, but I do remenber the RV dealers and campground owners screaming like mad when it was proposed.

Well that sounds like a good start--I've never driven one, but I've put in my share ot seat time in semis, and to tell the truth, in a strong crosswind those things look way more unstable than a truck! JMHO

ctually I just looked at the NYS site and it is only for RV's having a Combined Gross vehicle weight of more than 26,000 # single or combination vehicle.

Well, like I say then, just a good start!
