Relax in the comfort of your own home or RV and we will walk you step-by-step through all of the systems of your RV. Buying an RV is exciting and when you pick it up the only thing on your mind is getting it home and planning that first trip. Yes, the dealer gave you a walk-through of the unit, but there was so much information and excitement that it was overwhelming.

Now it’s parked in your driveway and you can’t remember what was covered during the walk-through. Don’t worry, we put all of the information into an easy to understand program that you can read and view as many times as you like, or need, until you are comfortable using your new travel trailer or 5th wheel trailer.

What does RV orientation® mean?

RV orientation® is a term I use for an RV dealer’s class given to the consumer after an RV is sold. My term RV orientation® can be used interchangeably with the term RV walk-through.
