I drive posted speed limit or a little less if under 60 MPH. If on interstate then my screen name tells it all.

I bought my motorhome to slow my life down. I'm not in a hurry to get anywhere.

Mostly the right lane, sometimes the center, the left for passing, unless someone is in the left lane impeding traffic, then I'll pass carefully on the right. About the pace of traffic, depending on density. I use my rear view camera as well as side mirrors to see what/who's around me, or if I might be the one impeding traffic flow. I'm a big believer in Smith System driving and the 5 keys associated with it. 1-Aim high in steering, 2-Get the big picture, 3-keep your eyes moving, 4-leave yourself an out, 5-make sure they see you. My company adopted the Smith Sytem several years ago and it's been a godsend for thousands of our folks in both the driving they do for the company and personal driving. Made me a much better motorcycle rider. Cruise control on flat land or very slight hills that require only a single gear downshift to maintain speed on the incline. If the incline is steeper, as many of them are here in Northern Nevada, I'll climb the hill with mostly the tachometer, keeping the rpm's around 4000-4200 on a 8.1 liter Vortec engine. I sometimes downshift manually prior to getting on the hill to keep the engine in the power band instead of letting it slow down, then downshift.

62 and try to stay in the right lane. Going through cities it's the middle lane.

I stick mostly with interstates, because of time constraints. When on secondary roads I do pull over to let faster traffic by.

How do you get it level in that campsite? They'll have to let all the air out on the backend and that may still not be enough!

Page 1, Post #9, Francesca wrote: "WHAT, exactly, is a "trailer bus", as defined by California????"

In the military "trailer buses" were called "cattle cars." They resembled a tractor-trailer, with the trailer converted by adding bus doors to the right side, sealing the back doors and adding bench seating. It was pulled by a truck utilizing a fifth-wheel and was employed at Marine Corps Recruit Depots Parris Island SC & San Diego CA, and Marine Corps Base Quantico VA (for officer candidates) until as late as the 1980s. The benches ran parallel to the long axis of the trailer. Passengers rode facing sideways. When the driver accelerates or brakes it's like watching dominoes. When I was at Quantico we'd joke at how they were designed for 60 candidates after lunch, 80 candidates after a run, or 115 Koreans anytime. No air ride on those bad boys, just leaf springs. Thank God they never went over 50 MPH.

I remember the "Trailer Bus" well. Rode them numerous times from the MCRD (Marine Corps Recruit Depot) in San Diego to Camp Mathews up the coast to the rifle range and to Camp Pendleton for Advanced combat training and Crew served Weapons Training. This was in 1957-1958.
