Can I really drive this.......?
Yes you can...................!
|It looks big.......... Doesn't.?
|No Problem, You can do it!
As youngsters we played with trucks in one form or another, trucks impress
us, Trucks makes us feel big, most every man and even some woman dream of driving a "BIG RIG" !,...... "eighteen
wheeler"....... songs are written, movies are made, the modern knight in shining armor who will stop and rescue the stranded
motorist along a highway all remind us of the desire to at least once live our dream!, Indeed the class 8 truck looks
mighty and impressive, not for the faint of heart, let me tell you as a former professional driver it will not take more than
a day of driving an HDT to not even think about the size any-longer!, pulling a big trailer, well don't worry what's behind
you, it'll always follow where ever you go, just make sure you take the turns a little bigger and never be in a hurry
as you would in a pickup truck! When driving a Class 8, never be in a rush, always leave enough room to make an emergency
stop and most of all, try not to speed!
For that you
will be the safest driver on the road, driving a vehicle that is made to pull the heaviest loads and is able to stop
your RV better than any 1 ton you meet on our highways. Go up a hill as though there is nothing behind you, come down a hill
without having to touch the service breaks in most cases with the engine brake engaged, A view forward
that allows you to determine what might be coming your way and take actions before hand, not to mention the shear pride of
driving something that is not exactly all to common and see people admiring your truck at the campgrounds and truck stops!
Still in doubt? you can always have a driving school get you used to the truck, or maybe you may know someone who can give
you some pointers? Moral of this story is that you will be a much safer combo than most one ton trucks pulling
+38 foot trailers, I always kind of wonder if some of those smaller trucks ever lost control while coming towards me what
would happen? Believe me when I tell you I have read some horror stories of overloaded pickup trucks getting into trouble
with disastrous results (see the link at the bottom of the page!) It could ruin a person or family for the rest of their life!
When you drive your conversion .... YOU .... are in control, and that is nice to know!
|Looks big and impressive
|Don't worry about driving one of these...!, it's like heaven
