    Electric brakes are junk , maybe the marshalls could descend on Elkhart to fix these death traps , long overdue.

    I have no idea why anyone who pulls a camper, or drives a motorhome isn’t required to have a special endorsement on their license. You need one for a motorcycle, bus, tractor trailer, etc., but not one of those. People park their Prius on Friday and jump on a 45’ motorhome and drive it the same way.
    They must have a strong lobbying group in DC, or something.

    Yup.

    And when you see one of these, take wide berth, these jockeys don't even need to start with a Prius, just ride the randem ergo health yuppie bike to the rental center and drive away!

    why not a special license or endorsement..??

    a very POWERFUL RV lobby, that's why.

    the RV world is a multi-million (if not billion) dollar industry, compared to the people that need a CDL for thier job.

    the CDL licensing has no such powerful lobby "for" but "against" it.

    way too many rules, and regulations, over a lax RV industry of rules and regulations, that has more power in thier itty-bitty finger, than the whole CDL lobby has in 10 bodies worth.

    it don't matter the billions of dollars trucking companies earn in a years time, what matters is that they keep that money for themselves, rather than to lobby for changes as the RV industry does.

    I re-read the Reddit comments. It is vague, but I think the tandems of the 5th Wheel RV were torn out from underneath. Given their very poor cheap construction they would give it up long before the tandems on a semi trailer.
