This is an RV 101 online e-book training course that can be viewed from computers, tablets, and smartphones. When you enroll in our training course you have the option to simply download the e-book and read it at your leisure, and/or you can participate in the online training course. I wanted to add more than just an e-book, so the course material includes the written text, short video segments, related articles written by your instructor, helpful tips & tricks, fun RV University play & learn crossword puzzles and quizzes to help you retain the information.
Just the thought of towing a thirty-foot long, 3 ½ ton trailer down the Interstate can be somewhat intimidating, not to mention dangerous if it’s not done properly. Trailer towing is a confusing topic with all the weight terminology, hitch-work and the wide variety of travel trailers and tow vehicles to choose from.
So, whether you have already purchased a travel trailer, or you are just thinking about it, this e-book course will teach you every thing you need to know before you tow.
It walks you through how to safely and properly match the tow vehicle to the trailer, the proper hitch-work to safely tow a trailer and numerous trailer towing techniques. After you understand the trailer towing basics the course provides you with all the tools you need to become proficient at towing and backing a travel trailer.
My goal with this e-book course is to clear up some of the confusion and make your trailer towing experiences as stress free as possible. After completing the course you will have more confidence and knowledge of what is required to safely and properly tow your travel trailer.
The following chapters are included in this course:
Chapter 1 - Tow Vehicle Capacities
Chapter 2 - Matching a Tow Vehicle & Trailer
Chapter 3 - Proper Hitch-Work
