I cannot drive the RV with shoes on, just can't get a positive feel for the pedals unless I'm in my stocking feet. Anyone else?

I can drive it either way, but when our first rental asked us not to wear shoes in the coach, I quickly got used to driving with just my socks. While I don't have any difficulty driving with shoes on, I definitely found it more comfortable to drive without. I found it more relaxing on the longer drives, for some reason.

At the same time, I couldn't help but feel like I was breaking some law or something, or that maybe it wasn't as safe. I'm not sure if that's the case on either of those.


So far, just renting, but hope to purchase our first MH (Class A) before the end of 2011, and then planning to fulltime at some point after that.

They do make driving moccasins, which are about the closest thing to being barefoot. The kind with just a leather sole, with maybe rubber inserts are the best.

Always drive our DP barefoot....don't know why but I am much more comfortable that I will always be able to differentiate between the throttle and the brake pedal (one is rubber, the other metal) as they are the same size and shape.

You sure you guys haven't been talking to my DW...no shoes allowed except for house slippers...and the dogs have 2 paw wipers...one outside and one inside...When I drive, I will drive barefoot or in socks and I actually feel I have more control that way...but only when driving the coach...

Driving without shoes is legal, although there are a few states where you might be ticketed for reckless driving. There are a few states where motorcycle riding without shoes is illegal.

And there has to be a law? I guess you can't force "common sense" on anyone. We've come a long way [emoticon]

I always take my shoes off when I enter the RV. Therefore I drive in my stocking feet as well. It never has bothered me.

I always wear shoes no matter what I'm driving.

"ticketed for reckless driving" I think not! That's ridiculous!
