For Class 3 lessons we use a Mack Vision day can equipped with a 13 speed Eaton Fuller manual transmission. We will be offered Class 1 instruction when we find a suitable trailer. We hope this will happen in the near future. The Cowichan Valley and Nanaimo truck dealers are looking for a suitable trailer for us.
