passengers

I'm new to camping and just bought a used slide in camper for my truck. Was wondering about passengers in camper while driving. Are there laws against it and or is it just not a good idea. I see people riding in the back of pickups quite a bit so i was just wondering. Thx.

It varies by State, call your State Police station and ask them. Don't be surprised if you get different answers, some of them are fuzzy on Campers on Pickups verses towables. A good indication is if there are no seatbelts in the seating areas of the camper

I would not let anyone I loved ride in the camper while moving. I've yet to see campers with seatbelts...can you imagine what would happen to those people in the back if you should be involved in an accident?

As I remember, a few years ago here in Wa. it was legal if there was comunication between cab & camper (windows open between cab & camper, 2 way radio, etc). As for safety, your decision may be something you have to live with.

My sister and I rode in our parent's camper in the mid sixties, no extended cab in those days. Looking back on it that was bloody dangerous. We spent most of the time in the upper bed enjoying the scenery but would have been missiles in the event of a sudden stop or collision. Mom insisted the tail gate be closed in case the door swung open and we fell out, she was likely more worried about us scrapping and throwing each other onto the highway LOL.We would have been trapped in the event of a pile up or fire. Yes, people do it all the time. Is it safe? NO.
