WASHINGTON — Hello campers! Winter continues to bring us opportunities for extended ski resort fun, a promise of precious water feeding our lakes and streams, along with wildlife and wildflowers as happy as can be this spring. We would like to touch on a couple of concerns some folks have about RV’s, as well as some RV safety/equipment issues that may be of interest.
Russ and Lori were asked if there are any Class A recreational vehicles that may have the new drive-assist options. This would include braking and lane correction. To be honest, Russ and Lori have an opinion about that, so here we go! We feel that an operator of any RV should have full attention at all times when driving. There are far too many variables that require a human fully operating the RV. Road conditions, wind, traffic, preparing for cross traffic that the driver needs to watch, and weather, require instant decisions and predictions that only a driver can correct with precision. Folks have been driving RV’s in their own lane for nearly 100 years now without drive-assist. For now, we feel that humans do the best job in an RV.
