I used to wave at all other RV`s when we first started out, but have become jaded enough to only wave back when waved to. Same as greeting people at RV parks. I really do believe there is a class issue for owners of motorhomes or perhaps people are really just frightened to get out and make new friends

I always wave....something my dad taught me, I've met a lot of new freinds that way. You never know who you might meet, And being in the family RV is what I look forward to!: wavey:

I wave but when two vehicles this size and weight pass within a few feet of each other the wave is secondary to safety.

Yep I am a waver, I really like to believe that if I don't get a wave back the other driver is either busy or did not see me......

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........
I would think that if you are on an Interstate, they probably don't even see you wave. If you are on a two lane road, they are probably closely watching the right edge of the road to keep their distance from you on the left side to avoid sideswiping you.

I just think it is too difficult to see if someone is waving, with the windshield glare and all. On my bike it was easy.

I try to always wave unless I'm fighting the coach or the missus. (not necessarily in that order) I've always wondered though, why others don't wave back.

It surprises me that others are too nervous (or their co-pilot is too nervous) to take one hand off the wheel for a few seconds to wave.

Figured they were just unfriendly, didn't realize it was driving issue for some folks.

Live and learn. I wave, but then I'm one of those low-class vintage (read: cheap 'n old) MH drivers.

Let me relate this to the semi driver who every little kid he passes wants him to blow the horn. Gets old after a while. Bikers are waving at bikers, boaters are waving at boaters, and now RV have to wave at other RV. Where does it end? I have a Toyota Corolla, am I to wave at every passing Corolla? RV people are snotty by and large. Class A better than Class C, Class C bigger than Class B, my motor home better than yours, only luxury Class A aloud in this park and so on and so forth...... Most RV parks segregate you to Class A park here, Class C park there etc. Older RV people are not that friendly to younger RV people (especially if they have kids). That just the way it is in this world, very sad. So if another RVer waves back at you, consider yourself lucky, just like that one in a dozen semi driver who blow his horn and make the kids smile.
