RV Driving Tips for the Highway

shutterstock_27695722As summer approaches, it’s time to embark on your summer excursions. While taking your RV out with your family can make for a great trip, there are some safety considerations to think about. Keep in mind that driving an RV is different than driving a car or truck.  Heed the following advice to ensure a safe, disaster-free trip. In addition, ensure you have a customized Dayville RV Insurance policy in place.

Stay in the right lane.

Especially for slower vehicles, the right lane is your best option. Unless you need to pass a slower moving trailer, you should always remain in the right lane and let faster traffic move passed you in the left lane. Furthermore, if you have an emergency and need to pull over, it will be much easier from the right lane.

Anticipate traffic around you.

Since RV’s take more time to speed up and slow down, leave a large gap in between you and the car you are following. Beware of cars trying to exit the freeway, merging into your lane, or for cars that might dart out in front of you, as well.

Be cautious in your maneuvers.

According to Love Your RV, while driving an RV on the Interstate highways, make movements – like lane changes in a slow deliberate manner- have your signal light on well in advance and move over slowly. This gives the other drivers a chance to correct themselves if they are darting out from behind you or coming up upon you at a high rate of speed.

Mind the truckers.                               

Truckers are often the most experienced drivers out there. Fall in line with the lanes they choose and how they travel on interstates, especially if you’re traveling a long distance. If you have a CB radio, tune in and get information on construction zones and traffic from local truckers, as well.
