HARRELLS, N.C. -- RV Education 101, a video and RV information company, fills the need for RV driver’s training and trailer towing training in easy-to-follow instructional DVDs.

People can watch the DVD in the comfort of their own homes, as many times as necessary, and find an area to apply the techniques they learned until they are more comfortable driving or towing the RV.

“It would be extremely difficult to design some type of driver's training course for RVs all over the country," said Mark Polk, founder of RV Education 101. "There are a few RV training facilities available, but the RV owner must drive or tow the RV to get to where the training is.”

Many people, especially new RVers or those who have never driven large vehicles, don't feel comfortable towing a trailer or driving a large motorhome without some type of additional training. When most people were taught to drive they were just taught the hows and not the whys, said Polk. Teaching the whys or the mechanics of driving gives RVers the tools and skills they can apply to any vehicle or any driving situation.

In the motorhome driving video, Polk joins Lorrin Walsh, a professional driver and author of Drive Your Motorhome Like a Pro, to provide the tools to help RV consumers drive their RVs like a professional driver. That means professionalism developed by the ongoing awareness of driving motor coaches, and the execution of unique driving techniques needed to become a safer and a more confident driver, said Polk.

Other DVD’s in the training library instruct individuals on how to properly and safely tow a travel trailer and fifth wheel trailer, and everything consumers need to know about safely towing a vehicle behind a motorized RV.

“Weight and towing issues are probably the least understood topics among the RV consumer," Polk explained. "Towing a trailer, or a vehicle behind a motorhome, can be an enjoyable experience if you have a proper match between the tow vehicle and trailer, the proper hitch work and you’re educated about weight ratings and how to tow.

"The great thing about DVD training is that RV consumers can review the training videos as many times as needed," said Polk. "Education is the single most important thing you can do for yourself."
