The proliferation of recreational vehicles (RV’s), such as campers and motor homes, has become incredibly popular as more and more people seek to enjoy the ‘freedom of the road’ and cost-saving alternatives to extended hotel stays. While RV’s have become increasingly popular, local and national regulations applicable to the operation of these vehicles has not kept pace with their proliferation. In most states, such as Illinois, drivers of campers and other recreational vehicles do not require any specialized training or licensing to operate their vehicle.
