Ed is an excellent instructor: knowledgeable, patient, and a clear communicator.Couldn’t be more pleased with the class. So happy to learn so much in just one 4 hour session:) Hugely improved my skills. Was able to back into my son’s driveway and park COMPLETELY ON MY OWN!Many, many thanks!!Peace,
This is a review of our RV school driving lesson November 11 and 12th this year. Our instructor was Andy Wahl. He did an outstanding job in teaching us how to maneuver our travel trailer in and out of tight spots. Both forward turns and during backing up. He has a great personality and excellent teaching demeanor. I would recommend Andy to anyone wanting to learn how to drive their RV. I have his card and will plan to distribute it. Five stars for Andy Wahl and your RV driving School!
I am answering for Ann who took the lesson. The instructor was absolutely excellent and incredibly thorough and knowledgeable. She was very much at ease and learned an amazing amount during the 2 day course. She had never driven an RV nor had any expereince with large trucks but was able to drive home part of the way home on highways, thru towns and on narrow country lanes.Clearly not an expert but comfortable enough to get behind the wheel- now it’s just practice. Thanks again
I just want to take a moment to thank you for your program. My instructor was Herb. He was great to work with and very thorough in my training. We had just purchased our first ever RV, a 40′ Class A motorhome. I am a pretty confident driver. However, whenever it came to driving something that big, I felt totally intimidated. Herb asked right away what I hoped to accomplish during my training. I told him that I needed to feel confident in driving our motorhome and knowledgeable in what I was doing. He took his time in showing me pre-trip inspection points as well as a review of internal instruments, gauges , etc. Before long he had me driving around a parking lot and was instructing me on the proper way to handle the vehicle. We then went out on the road and he took me through many obstacles which I will surely encounter along the way, instructing, complimenting and noting where I needed to improve the entire time. We also took time to go over various backing maneuvers. By the time I was done with this course, I felt very confident that I could handle our vehicle. Throughout, Herb gave me the option to ask questions, or to review anything that I was not certain of.I would highly recommend RV Driving School to anyone driving an RV! I now feel safe and confident, ready to enjoy our many years ahead as we travel this beautiful country! Thank you Herb!
Randy was great. Although we finished each day in 4 hours, he said it may take longer depending on what I needed. He was very thorough, explained everything. He certainly met my expectations
Our stab braking experiments had mixed success. I heard that the Allison/Duramax may automatically downshift on grades in tow/haul mode. Is there any way of validating this? If so, it would explain why we weren’t increasing in speed that fast when going down a grade.Nice guy and a nice course.Thank you!
I participated in a RV Driving School lesson with instructor Bill Anderson. This course was offered as part of the Renegade Bootcamp Event in Kerrville TX. This course met my expectations. Bill provided great instructions and information. His outgoing personality sets the tone. He was very patient and put me at ease and I walked away with the knowledge and skill I needed to be confident that I can drive my RV on the highway, 2-way roads, hills, in the city, truck stops, backing, and parking in different site configurations. He was also very good about covering seat position, mirrors, all the dials and buttons on the console, which included during the driving when and how to use them correctly. I greatly appreciated Bill’s approach and definitely feel comfortable driving the RV, in fact I drove approximately 225 miles in the last two days. I highly recommend Bill and this course. Thanks
Jordy was my instructor and I have to say that he was the most kind, patient and knowledgeable instructor one could have. He gave me advice based on his knowledge and what people might say, basically the pros and cons of his knowledge, which I appreciated. He told me what to expect from what others might say as opposed to what he taught me. The proof was in the pudding when I asked my neighbor (before the training) who was a 20 plus year teamster to re-park my camper when we got the training done and he came over to assist after I told him I wanted to attempt to park my camper. He threw advice at me and Jordy told my neighbor that I can only listen and hear one voice. I “aced” backing my camper up to my parents driveway (which the delivery person who delivered the camper backed the camper into my parents roof and parked it crooked and so no one could park on that side of the driveway for months.) I also had another incident when Hitchman’s auto and RV repair shop pulled one over one me by getting me to purchase a new sleeve for my sway bar tow package, Jordy assisted me with the company as to why they basically lied and forced me to buy this new hitch that I didn’t need. They also didn’t have my camper leveled and Jordy went to bat for me that they needed to get the camper leveled. They also fought with me about the sway bar and Jordy set them straight. All things I would have just let go, but Jordy wanted me to be safe and legal. I was absolutely terrified of driving the I17 even without a camper, but he thought I did so well with maneuvering the back up of my camper that I could handle the I17 mountain up to Sunset point and back down the mountain. I was nervous and white knuckled all the way up but ‘Jake’ had my back all the way down (Jake is now my truck’s new name because Jordy’s wife calls the Jake brake…Jake). Jordy made me feel super confident in driving my 32 ft long camper up and down the mountain and I feel good about driving the city streets. I wish there was a bit more time to practice with an instructor but I am good where I am now. Even though I previously purchased a bunch of stuff I needed for my camper in preparation for the training and getting on the road. Jordy set me up with some purchases as far as safety and security went. He patiently walked me through my entire camper interior and exterior and showed me how everything worked and how something may not work. He offered his number for any future phone calls if anything arises. I really appreciate Jordy and the RV driving course. Thank you!
Although I have some experience in driving our Super C, the majority of my driving has been on the highways. My instructor went over all the objectives of my driving lesson and asked me what I felt I needed help with the most. For me, driving in towns was something I didn’t have much experience with so that is mostly what we concentrated on. In addition we also worked on backing into designated spaces as well as parallel parking. Although I wasn’t fearful of driving such a big rig, I definitely gained confidence. I’m glad I took the lesson.

Michael Lynch gave me my RV lesson last Tuesday. My wife and I, just bought our first RV, a class A with a tag wheel, a couple of weeks ago. Due to health issues, our class had to be adjusted and we had to do the entire course in one day. Michael was very accommodating. I can see where 2 days is ideal but I found I never got tired and never got overwhelmed going through your course in just one day. My wife (ride-along) and I are very excited about learning all we can as first-time RVers and we enjoyed the experience so much we found the time went by quickly.Michael is a wonderful instructor. He’s passionate and has an effective method. He passed on a wealth of information obviously from a wealth of experience. We’ve tried our best to prepare ourselves by watching and reading material but Michael brought out a lot that we hadn’t thought of and he demonstrated everything in a way that will stay with us. We both really appreciate that he kept my wife actively engaged. I expected her to have a long day as a ride-along but she enjoyed every moment and she got so much out of it. So we are not only feeling much more confident, but we are even more excited about getting this new adventure underway.As far as improvements in the course, I really can’t think of anything. You could incorporate your own facilities but that would make you less flexible and accommodating. Michael had all the materials and had a great spot picked out for us to do our maneuvers and it was conveniently near our storage facility. He also provided us with some very helpful ideas on paper for us to always have and refer to.NIRVC highly recommended we take your course and gave us Michael’s contact information. We are very glad we took their advice. I’m sure we will come into contact with other new buyers at NIRVC and we will definitely recommend your course to them. The added confidence is worth the money.Thank you,
