RVSEF Training Session now Available Online
Walter Cannon, executive director of the Recreation Vehicle Safety & Education Foundation (RVSEF), today (July 23) announced the release of the organization’s first online training program: “Properly Matching Trucks/Trailers,” in partnership with the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA).
According to a press release, the program provides consumers with important information they need to know when purchasing a new RV travel trailer, fifth-wheel trailer or the truck that will be used to tow them. The “Properly Matching Trucks/Trailer” online training program is available at www.rvsafety.com.
Cannon has been conducting live presentations of the RVSEF “Properly Matching Trucks/Trailers” seminar throughout the country at shows and rallies since 2005.
“Even in 2005, we knew that many people did not fully understand the details of towing capacities and ratings associated with towing,” he said. “With the surge in sales of towable RV units in recent years, along with proposed upcoming changes in how manufacturers report truck towing capacities, this topic has become the most sought-after seminar we present at shows. Consequently, RVSEF, with support from RVIA, decided to create an on-line version to reach more consumers with this valuable information.”
Cannon further noted that this presentation is not only valuable for consumers but is also appropriate for technicians, salespeople and others working in the RV industry.
RVSEF is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization based in Merritt Island, Fla.
