CB is required for caravanning with other RVs. Other than that, I find it useless.

A CB radio is a tool. There are some apps for smartphones that can give you current traffic conditions. However they don't give you what the cause of the jam is or how long it might take to clear up. Truckers do have a great sense of what's happening and when there is a situation they start right up and tell everyone what's happening. CB radios provide excellent short distance communications, and if you find the right people great conversation.

Thanks everyone. I didn't mean to start a debate on the pros and cons of CB' s. When we get home going to look closer at some of the suggested options.

A few days ago a trucker came up next to us on the interstate , beeped his horn and motioned to the back. I could see my toad( a pickup truck with a motorcycle in it) was OK thru the rear camera, so I thought maybe he liked the bike ??? I pulled over at a safe spot a few miles down the road and found that one of loose ends of my ratchet strap had come unraveled and was dragging on the ground.
Not a big deal, but if I had a radio, I'm sure he would have told me exactly what was going on.
I had one in the old coach, and only used it to check on traffic conditions, but it did come in handy
