When your on the road and you pass a fellow RV'er. it seems like there would be so much more comeradity than there is. Your out on the open road, your partaking in the American dream, your living life on the edge and experiencing life to it fullest potential.( at least that's how I feel when I'm behind the wheel, even if it's only for the weekend) but seldom ever get a wave back from fellow RV'ers. whats the deal? I'm talking even on 2 lane roads, at slower speeds....... Are RV'ers all just a little snooty and maintain a "I've arrived" mentallity? If you give a wave to a fellow RV'er in passing, let me know with an (I do) just so I know that I'm not in the "snooty club of Americas" favorite pastime........
It's probably because a lot of those people are from big cities where they don't even wave at there neighbors (who they have lived next to for 30 yrs and don't even know there first names, it's a trust issue). so waving at a complete stranger is even more scarey. My friend i'm the same way I wave at every one, maybe some day they will come around.

Waving is a trust issue... thats a new one on me. I honestly find that people that have issues with other people not waving are maybe a bit insecure.

I dunno... I wave when in the motorhome and just assume they wave back & I wave in my buggy to make sure that other people are ok (where waving actually serves a purpose).

What scares me the most is the ones that talk on the phone, text or read their nook book things.. you can always tell if they are texting, because you have to honk at them to go on through the green light. Please drive safe and keep your mind on the road. but a little wave or nod would not hurt either..

I find it difficult to wave when I am trying to keep the rig on the road. A Mountinaire waved at me near Custer SD and I was so impressed with the sound of their motor as we were struggling to climb the hill I forgot to wave. I wave on my bike but the MH needs to much attention. I think I need a bigger motor.

Why can't other motorhomes you pass wave?

Cause they are motorhomes you silly buggers!

It's the people in them who need to wave!

Lots of wavers today and yesterday, travelling 2 lanes in southern Utah and Colorado. Much easier to see them when they are passing a foot from my mirror, too!

He was busy texting the Safety Office to explain why he was not wearing gloves as required while riding a motorcycle.

I get waved at all the time in traffic, but it seems like it's always the middle finger. I call it bird watching.

The only thing worse than that is someone with something bigger that can severely harm you texting!

Safety Offices are trying to determine what unit he belongs to- not going to be a good day if they figure it out. I heard they got his plate number as well as the picture. ( I didn't take the pic)
