RVers must compensate for the extra weight, height and length of their vehicles when cornering. Practice S.A.F.E. cornering:
- Slowly approach the turn. It’s much easier to speed up in the corner than have to brake.
- Arc the turn, careful to not arc the first swing in the opposite direction, confusing drivers behind as to where you really intend to go.
- Finish the turn completely. Drivers make a common mistake when they straighten before the back end of the vehicle has cleared the pivot point.
- Experience is key. The best way to become a good RV driver is practice, practice, practice.
