RV New to This?
As air travel slowed during the pandemic and hotels became potential sources of increased virus risk, Americans turned to RVs.

Big manufacturers and dealers reported huge backlogs amounting to billions of dollars (yes, that's billions with a "b") with drivers taking them off lots as soon as they arrive. Translation: There are a lot of inexperienced RV drivers on the roads. We reached out to experts, who offered a wealth of advice for these novices.
