Life on Wheels, an RV consumer education program aimed at all levels of RVing experience, has set its schedule for 2005 while adding a new program to the format.
The Life on Wheels program, now entering its 11th year, was founded and is directed by Gaylord Maxwell, veteran RVer, columnist for MotorHome magazine, book author, and lecturer.
Maxwell said a special feature of the 2005 Life on Wheels offering is a pre-conference session called “Just for Newbies.” This two-day event precedes main conferences, and is designed specifically for new RV owners or RVers looking to become more comfortable with their rigs.
According to Maxwell, every attendee will receive personal, hands-on instruction from a Master Certified RV Technician.
The 2005 schedule is as follows:
* Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, May 13-16
* University of Idaho, Moscow, June 26-July 1
* Northampton Community College, Bethlehem, Pa., August 5-8
* Des Moines Area Community College, Ankeny, Iowa, Aug. 26-29.
Classes are offered in three categories: Lifestyle, covering topics like full-timing and choosing an RV; Technical, which teaches RVers how to maintain equipment and systems; and Lifestyle Enhancement, offering a broad range of subjects, including cooking tips and the psychological aspects of traveling long-term by RV.
“The idea is to have something for everyone, from newbies to your highly experienced RVers,” Maxwell said, noting the tuition fee for each conference is $199 per person and the “Newbies” program is an additional $99 per coach.
