Camp Freightliner gives current and hopeful motorhome owners a chance to explore and learn about their vehicles
"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 Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation.
This 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. 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 sessions are offered Feb. – Nov. 2010. See http://bit.ly/7MDzKj for specific information.
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.
