For many new to RVing, driving that “big old box” can be rather intimidating. Making the switch from driving something the size of, say, an SUV to something that seems as huge as a house can give you more than a little pause.
With that new size comes a new need: planning ahead with an exit strategy. We don’t mean getting out of the RV lifestyle, but rather, planning ahead to get your RV out of places you might otherwise get stuck in. Here’s a common scenario: Your tow vehicle is low on fuel. Pulling into any old gas station can get real complicated if you find you don’t have room to turn and pull out from the islands. Another scenario? Driving down a back-country road and it just keeps getting narrower and narrower. We’ve been RVing for decades, but sure enough, just last summer this little problem happened to us.
