ClassGraphic Have you dreamed of hitting the road but don’t know where to start? If you're considering buying a recreation vehicle, whether for short or long-term adventuring, this class will walk you through all of the basics you need to pick the right vehicle for you, and hit the road with confidence. Join Kimberley as she guides you through different kinds of rigs and what will work best for your lifestyle. You’ll learn how to choose the right rig, whether heading out for a long weekend or full time. This class will cover: 
  • Buying the right rig for you
  • Getting your rig set for the road
  • Staying connected: Internet and phone
  • Water management
  • Tank management
  • Power management
  • Toolbox, towing, and when things go wrong

At the end of class you will have a completed worksheet to take home with planning information, and Kimberley will give you a tour of her Class C motorhome and review how it's prepared and set up.
