library129The adventure of camping has always been an irresistible draw to RV owners. Now, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (FCCC) is giving enthusiasts a chance to explore their own recreational vehicles at two-day Camp Freightliner sessions this year.

Camp Freightliner is an opportunity for RV owners to spend two intensive, fun-filled days learning some of the ins and outs of what makes their vehicles tick, according to a news release. Campers will hear from Freightliner experts who will lead workshops covering RV ownership from A to Z, including:

  • Understanding and maintaining air brake and electrical systems.
  • Overall tips and guidelines for maximum performance.
  • Suggested maintenance intervals.
  • The importance of weight distribution.
  • Proper vehicle storage.

In addition, pilots and co-pilots have the opportunity to learn firsthand the intricacies of a Freightliner chassis by examining a bare chassis to highlight and review its features and components.

FCCC officials have designed the Camp sessions for any new, existing or hopeful Class A motorhome owner who wants to learn more about diesel-powered RVs and how to care for them.

Nearly 30 individual Camp Freightliner sessions are offered February through November. See for specific information.

For a limited time, interested pilots and co-pilots can participate in the February Camp Freightliner classes (Feb. 15-16 or Feb. 18-19) for a discounted rate of just $100 for both attendees, a 33% savings. Regular pricing for Camp sessions are $150 for pilot and co-pilot registration.library130

Camp Freightliner accommodations include full hook-ups, and discounted camping rates are also available at the local Spartanburg KOA campground. Camp Freightliner will host a cookout dinner for participants the first evening of each session.

“We recently opened Camp Freightliner to anyone who might be interested in moving from a towable or fifth-wheel to a Class A motorhome, or for people who just want to learn more about owning a motorhome, so we could educate them about chassis maintenance and give them an understanding what goes into owning and operating a Class A RV,” said Dave Hoover, customer support manager at FCCC.

FCCC manufactures premium chassis for the motorhome, delivery walk-in van, and school bus and shuttle bus markets. FCCC is a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America LLC, a Daimler AG company.
