Glad to see SOME that consider it not the end of the world ....

How am I not surprised that the "stupid' word would be used and
the "I know better than you, so we will make you conform" birds fly out in a thread like this

I bet some will sing a different tune when ISIS starts making the rules

If it's your RV, it's your rules........ Always try not to put my spoon in someone else's soup.

DW was asleep in back of the DP, a very large heron committed suicide against my side of the windshield. (which did not break) Cruise was set at 68. Could have been an interesting ride for DW. Sleeping while underway still an option.
(Not so much for the driver)

Wow... all I can say is Wow... Do even leave your house, 'cause there's so many of us stupid/crazy people driving around ?

Guys.. I'm assuming the majority of us are; right minded individuals, capable of analyzing the situation and making the best decision for YOU and your family..

Can something happen.. sure... what's the likelihood of something happening, probably "slim to none".. but as they say, even the lock on your front door isn't a sure thing...

For those of you fearful of tearing off the tags on your mattresses... well, carry on...

The whole reason we have a Class A over a TT is so we could utilize the amenities while we travel. Right now the only limit on how long we can drive is my bladder, and even then it's just a matter of pulling off long enough to walk to the bathroom and back. If my kids need the bathroom they can get up and go. Lunch time? My wife can go to the galley and make sandwiches for everyone. We choose to assess the situation and determine the level of risk we'll bear ourselves, thank you very much.

School buses rarely get over 40 mph and yet every year we still have kids killed in school bus accidents. How fast are you risking your kids and wife lives at?

I bet my DH wishes I would go to the back to sleep. I'm with your DW, convinced we are taking out every mailbox and bridge. We are newbie MH drivers so I'm a bit over reactive lol!!!!

This is how we do it. I am usually doing the napping.

Gotta love this woman! She isn't a taxi cab driver by any chance is she? I had our then 9 year old granddaughter in a NY Taxi once. I tried to cover her ears! She said Pop Pop they say much badder things in school than that!

I only wish my DW would go back and take a nap ... I bet that would reduce the screaming by at least 75%! I do my best work when I'm "unsupervised" !!!!! ;-)
