Towing Training or assistance in Atlanta

Just purchased our 31ft 1986 AS Soveriegn and love it. Will be towing with a 2011 Tahoe. Would like to have a company or person with experience take a look at both vehicles, and offer some training so I can get comfortable taking it on the road. Live in Atlanta - any help would be appreciated!!

Hope someone nearby can give you a hand! Perhaps one of the local AS inspectors could review for you?
Peace and Blessings..

If you're looking for driving instructions, try a nearby CDL training center (surely there must be one in Atlanta). My and and I did a 2-day weekend class at a local CDL training center and I'm REALLY glad we did!

Good luck!!

Hey, I live in Roswell, GA. Full timed for about a year. More than happy to swing by and show you the basics, cuz basically that's all I know (hitching,maneuvering,enjoying). Maybe we can go camping together somewhere local to get you in the swing of things. Shoot me a direct message and I'll get you my contact info if you'd like.
No matter where you go, there you are.

If all else fails, do what we did -- collect up a bunch of cardboard boxes, find a big empty parking lot (Sunday mornings work well) and make yourselves a maneuvering course.

Hard on the boxes at first but you will be amazed at how fast you pick it up.

Enjoy !
