One problem many new RV drivers have is making right-hand turns without hitting the curb. There are a couple of real easy tricks professional drivers use to make sure they DO NOT hit a corner.

One is to make sure the vehicle is close to the lane line on the left side of your vehicle when setting up for the turn, which should leave your RV about 3.5 feet from the curb on your right. The other is to keep your vehicle moving straight until your shoulder is just beyond the curb, at which time you will start your turn.

In addition to making sure you are at the correct starting position for your turn, any safe driver is going to be checking their convex mirror in the direction they are turning to make sure they are clear of the curb or any other possible objects in their turning path.

This past week one of my students, Sue P. found out how easy it is to make perfect right-hand turns and I was fortunate enough to have my camera rolling when the “light-bulb” came on. Great job Sue, I couldn’t have done better!
