Great news for RVers and wannabe RVers who wanted to attend Life on Wheels!

Walter Cannon, Executive Director of the Recreational Vehicle Safety Education Foundation (RVSEF) announced yesterday that RVSEF is holding an RV Lifestyle, Safety and Education Clinic September 13 – 16, 2009 at the Wildwood Conference Center at Harrisburg Area Community College in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

In the last few weeks, Walter has discussed the new program with me a couple of times, and we have been exchanging e-mails. I am really excited about it. Walter and RVSEF are proven entities in the RV industry, and if anyone has the business acumen and the industry contacts to create a successful RV education program, Walter is the man.

Walter tells me that he will be bringing in many of the former Life on Wheels instructors, and from our conversations, I know that the program will be long on education without the “fluff” classes that had crept into the Life on Wheels schedule in its last year or two. 

Attendees at the new program will learn about the different types of RVs available and how they will fit an individual’s needs, how to properly and safely operate their RVs, and come away with the knowledge and confidence to enjoy all that the RV lifestyle has to offer.

Special focus will be given to understanding how an RV’s different systems work, and how to maintain and operate them; warranties, insurance and roadside assistance programs available for RVers; and the RV lifestyle and how to get the most out of it. RV driver training will also be available, and attendees can arrange to have their rigs inspected for safety, and weighed by a RVSEF certified weighing crew.

For more information call RVSEF at 321-453-7673 or e-mail them at staff@rvsafety.com. You can visit the RVSEF website at www.rvsafety.com.

Terry and I will be leaving Mission, Texas today headed toward Arizona. We have a couple of stops to make along the way, and I don’t now how cell phone reception will be along our intended route. So if you log on tomorrow and don’t see a blog, don’t get excited. We haven’t been beamed up by aliens or sold into servitude. We’re just exploring America’s Outback.

Thought For The Day – Don’t let adverse facts stand in the way of a good decision.

  1. Wow, this is exciting to hear that a similar program to LOW will be happening. Lenny & I were only able to attend one LOW a few years ago. We’ve always wanted to go back but couldn’t get the vacation time together. We’re not full-timing yet, but those classes taught us so much. This is wonderful news that there will be another program we can attend so we can educate ourselves even more before going full-time. Thanks for the info Nick.

  2. Sounds interesting! Will you guys be taking part in that clinic?

  3. If this new offering is half what Life on Wheels was I would recommend it to all. We attended the first LOW held in Tucson on our maiden voyage into fulltiming after quitting our jobs and selling our house in 2006. We learned a great deal and the classes gave us a sense of comfort and knowledge. We got into workamping to save $$$ and love the life. If only more people knew how great it is, well, maybe there’s some good in that.

  4. This is such good news! We loved LOW when we attended in 2004, and we’d love to present our computer seminars to such an audience. Thanks for the link, I will contact them.
