Turn wide, take your time. Don,t do anything in a hurry. Signal and take a minute to know you are clear when changing lanes. Be careful when in campgrounds. Get the copilot out on walkie talkies or cell phone on speaker. Don’t worry about age. You will be one of many. I assume you have a long bed truck. If not get a slider hitch. RVers are great people. If you need help just ask. And often you will get it wherther you ask or not. Happy trails.

Watch your clearance. Know how tall your trailer is.
Stick to truck routes wherever possible.
Never ever trust your GPS.
