An RV Safe Driving Course is being introduced during the Good Sam VIP Safety Rally in Palm
Springs, California, January 28 and 29, 2002. A joint project of the Good Sam Club, Good
Sam VIP, General Motors and GMAC Insurance, the course includes a behind-the-wheel segment
with Class A motorhomes, fifth-wheels and travel trailers supplied by National RV Inc. The
Perris, California-based manufacturer’s brands include Tradewinds, Sea Breeze, Marlin,
Island, Dolphin and Sea View motorhomes, plus a wide range of fifth-wheel and travel
trailer models. The two-day rally features a variety of interactive exercises designed to
help drivers build RV and automobile driving skills. GM instructors will work with
participants to practice proper skid-recovery procedures, off-road recovery techniques,
braking and accident-avoidance procedures, while driving the latest GM vehicles. Among the
RV exercises are 90-degree right and left turns, parallel parking and backing up. Classroom
instruction will address weight distribution, fire, tire safety and more. An RV simulator
will take participants on a “trip” through more than 215 obstacles. Food and entertainment
will be included. For more about the January safety rally, call (800) 765-1912, ext. 166.
