Driving should and can be fun. When you learned to drive you were probably taught how, but not why you needed to do things. I started Drive Smart publications to help people learn the whys. To help you do that I have written two books, “Drive Your Motorhome Like a Pro” and “Tow Your Fifth Wheel Trailer like a Pro”.

My question to you is, “How much does an Oops cost?” $500?, $1000? $2000? If one of my books can save you just one Oops, it would probably be the best return on an investment you ever made. My books are available in hard copy, down load, and DVD.

If you would like to learn about RVing in Alaska and The Yukon Territory my wife has compiled her experiences as a tour guide and RV travels in the great land in a book called “Rambling By RV Through Alaska and The Yukon Territory”, available in hard copy or down load.

Drive Your Motorhome Like a Pro is a complete guide to professional driving techniques for beginners to experienced drivers. It takes commercial driving training techniques and converts them to layman’s terms. It explains basic rules so you can apply them to anything that you might drive.

Mini public service announcement:

If the weather is bad enough to where you have little to no visibility on the road, then take the time to drive safely and put your phone away for just a little while. You will be just fine. I almost died yesterday on the freeway because it was more important that the individual in front of me maintain his current speed of 70 mph and continue texting. Needless to say he hit a water pocket and hydroplaned directly into the left highway wall only to spiral out and hydroplane across three lanes in the opposite direction. Yes we all have places to be, but come on now. I value my life and I’m sure you valued your vehicle before all that happened. Please be safe this weekend.
