Texas RV Accident Lawyer
Recreation Vehicles, also called RVs or Motorhomes, are commonly seen on the nation's highways as people hit the road driving increasingly bigger and more luxurious vehicles. Retirees, vacationers, and road-trippers enjoy the freedom these vehicles offer to travel across the country in comfort and style. However, the size and weight of large RVs and motorhomes have no specific driver's licensing requirements to get behind the wheel. The combination of size and inexperience of its drivers that can make these vehicles a menace for others sharing the roads.
Texas Recreational Vehicle Types
- Mini RVs- Most mini RVs are built on a cutaway van chassis. These are often called “mini” motor-homes and are easier to drive than the larger varieties. The front end looks and operates more like a truck or van.
- Camper RVs- these motor-homes are crafted like van campers and are also usually constructed on a van wheelbase like the mini RVs.
- Large Full-Sized RVs- For most people, an RV is the most commonly recognized recreational vehicle. These units are the most comfortable and luxurious but also the most dangerous on the road. Some these recreational vehicles are crafted up to 45 feet long and 8.5 feet wide and built on a bus chassis.
Dangers RV’s Pose To Motorists On The Road
- Rollover tendency. Like any tall, narrow vehicle, RVs are much more likely to roll or tip over. RVs are especially susceptible to rollover due to their wheelbase when negotiating a curve or swerving to avoid an object on the road.
- Stopping distance. RVs can range up to 30,000 pounds, putting them in a “large truck” classification by transportation standards. This weight increases their stopping distance and force of impact.
- Visibility. Just like tractor-trailers and buses, RVs drivers have limited visibility and numerous blind spots that hide other vehicles and pedestrians sharing the road.
