We purchased our first Class A in 2004, a 40 ft diesel pusher. Since neither of us had driven a vehicle this large, we practiced on country roads on weekends and occasionally took it out on the interstate. We now own a 43' Class A diesel. My husband enjoys driving it on our trips so he does most of the driving, but I could if necessary. My contribution on trips is backing the bus into spaces. I have a knack for doing this and my husband doesn't, so our skills compliment. I would recommend a driving school if that is an option. It wasn't for us, but if it ever is, I would jump at the chance to enhance my skills.
