Linda will drive the F-350, but no way will she drive when the TT is attached. She can't believe the combo truck and TT is 60 feet long. Were longer then Semi rolling down the road.

I drive 95% of the time. Don can pull the tt, just prefers to chill as a passenger.

My wife and I share the driving except where I think their might be serious problems. I have seen too many times where the spouse has been hurt and the other had to drive the rig for the first time. Most recently at a fly fishing outing one of our members hurt his hand and could not drive ( lots of pain pills sling etc) wife had to take the "crash" course to get home. He had the benifit of pills she did not. Besides it nice to be able to relax on a long trip and look at the world and realy pay attention to how the rig is doing. Funny we have some rigs that oly the women drive so it works both ways..

DW inflicted dammage on previous truck twice. She can barely drive her Corolla. No way would I turn her loose in new truck, much less attached to the trailer. (Good thing she doesn't read these boards )

My wife loves to drive the F250 but prefers I do the towing. She will tow in a pinch but only if she has to. She pulled our pup once or twice, but the only pulling she has done with the 30U is to pull it up onto blocks so I could change a blowout.

I do all the driving, but SO has driven with trailer in tow, just in case the need ever presents itself, which we both hope never happens!

I really should have my wife take the wheel sometime. If i should start feelng under the weather it would be nice to know she would be able to step in a take the wheel.

We have been fulltiming since July 1, 1999- Over the years, I have taught my DW how to tow our rv- She does great on the open road but will not try to back the fiver into a campsite- But that is a story for another day- I know she could do it if she tried- She has a tendancy to tow a little faster than I feel comfortable with but I need for her to spell me when we are traveling- I am not too uncomfortable that I can't catch a few winks while she's tooling down the road though- She is a bit wary in construction areas and this is good- JMHO- DD

My wife has no problem driving the truck by itself but is very nervous about towing. She will do it eventually but i am waiting for her to get a little more confidence first.
