Driving should and can be fun. When you learned to drive you were probably taught how, but not why you needed to do things. I started Drive Smart publications to help people learn the whys. To help you do that I have written two books, “Drive Your Motorhome Like a Pro” and “Tow Your Fifth Wheel Trailer like a Pro”.
My question to you is, “How much does an Oops cost?” $500?, $1000? $2000? If one of my books can save you just one Oops, it would probably be the best return on an investment you ever made. My books are available in hard copy, down load, and DVD.
If you would like to learn about RVing in Alaska and The Yukon Territory my wife has compiled her experiences as a tour guide and RV travels in the great land in a book called “Rambling By RV Through Alaska and The Yukon Territory“, available in hard copy or download.
Drive Your Motorhome Like a Pro is a complete guide to professional driving techniques for beginners to experienced drivers. It takes commercial driving training techniques and converts them to layman’s terms. It explains basic rules so you can apply them to anything that you might drive.
The author Lorrin Walsh has had motorhomes for over 30 years. When he came close to retirement he went to work for GrayLine of Seattle. As he went through training he realized how much he knew, how much he thought he knew, and how much he didn’t know about driving a large vehicle. After 2 years he was asked to become a driving instructor for the company. Realizing that he was one of millions of baby boomer who are in the same place, he decided to take the knowledge he had gained and write a book that could help people become safer, more confident drivers.
