I'm the first one for less regulation but it makes sense there should be something beyond a license to drive a VW needed to safely drive them.

Huh? You are all for less regulation and even though you havenít bought or driven a bus yet, you are for more regulation in this case? Sounds a bit contradicting to me.

IMO, I prefer less regulation in almost every case. Government action generally does very little to improve anything.

Don & Ken -

Our busnut friends who live in British Columbia must take a class in order to drive a vehicle equipped with air brakes.  So even the stick 'n staple Class A diesel pusher crowd up there have to get that endorsement.  (Not sure if this is true in other Canadian Provinces. . .)

I agree with Don in that there are a lot of folk out there on the highway with a motorhome that should take some kind of training because they have no clue what they're doing.

But I don't agree that the government should get involved, there's too much bureaucratic BS out there as it is.

The scariest ten words in the English language are: "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help you!"

FWIW & HTH. . .

Every province in Canada requires an air brakes endorsement to drive anything with air brakes. You can take the course on Friday night, Sat and Sun and then take the test. A great education for anybody that is going to operate an air brakes vehicle. This is the kind of thing a government should do. And I don't see that it has hurt the sales of RVs up here.
