Another Good Sam VIP Safety Rally to enhance RV owners’ driving skills, is scheduled for mid-May near South Bend, Ind.
The safety rally, named for Good Sam VIP auto and RV insurance, is scheduled for May 15-17 at the Bosch Automotive Providing Grounds in New Carlisle, Ind., which is west of South Bend.
Although a special license is not needed to drive or tow the vast majority of RVs, the Good Sam safety rally program has been well received for its total approach to RVing and overall attention to the issues involved in driving a vehicle with the kind of length, height and weight of an RV.
The first two days of the course will consist of four four-hour class sessions, including a classroom segment, safety review of each participants’ rig, hands-on RV driving section and hands-on auto driving section using General Motors cars.
The third day will include safety-related seminars and optional private hands-on RV driving time.
In addition to Good Sam VIP Insurance, the safety rally is sponsored by the Good Sam Club, General Motors, the Recreation Vehicle Safety Education Foundation and Hart City RV, a dealership in nearby Elkhart, Ind.
Good Sam Club is a membership organization providing a variety of services to RV owners. Good Sam Club and Good Sam VIP Insurance are units of Affinity Group Inc., as is TL Enterprises Inc., publisher of RV Business and RVBUSINESS.com.
