We have three neck pillows in the MH so she can always find one - it relives the stiff neck. If she wants to go to bed and sleep I'll stop the coach and let her go to the back (she's not to stable on her feet anymore). If I'm driving by myself I don't drive too far because their are so many things to stop and see. Heck, if she's sitting up in the front I still don't drive too far, for the same reason.

For all of the safety nuts it's our coach so our rules. We strap in, in heavy traffic and large cities. We tend to stay off freeways and meander the back roads.

Haven't seen this response but my wife does move around and has even gotten good at taking a shower as we travel. I tell her when we are an hour from our destination and she has time for her beautification before we arrive at the destination. She takes a two way radio back with her so I can communicate any situations happening up front. We get to the destination and she is ready for the day.

On a trip recently, I was up front driving all alone. It was so peaceful; I noticed that the normally high pitched whiney noise usually present was gone and all I could hear was the 350 Cat purring 40' behind me. The dog was asleep and and the radio was off -- it was so nice. I turned my head looking for DW and I saw the midship pocket door was closed. I looked again and saw fingers under the door wiggling around. WTH!! I pulled over and walked back and the pocket door would not move, it had delaminated and the door skin was holding it closed. Since DW is sooo sexy and a wonderful cook (dog and I would have TOTALLY starved to death) I pulled the pocket door open with all my might. Have since relaminated the door.

Well I wasn't gonna start that one but yes my wife and kids have all rode, played, ate, and slept in the TT. The girls are now all grown but somehow they survived and frequently ride their motorcycles out to our campsites to visit.

What's all grown up got to do with it?

Anyway, my wife usually sleeps in the co-pilots seat. She will sit at the dinette and sew while underway. She'll move about, cooking, making coffee, etc, while I'm driving.
She's driven some, & I've gone to the back of the coach mostly "checking on things". Honestly, though, I don't see how anyone could sleep back there anyway with all the road noise.

My son-in-law said it ought to be an Olympic sport to "cook a meal in the RV while in motion".

Love that one! when you finally freed her you gained your cook back, but you probably also got that "high pitched whiney noise" back also!

They have their own homes and don't travel on our schedule so they no longer have the opportunity to ride in the TT. Also it shows that for all the dumb... stuff we've done our kids somehow survived.

We are not in that much of a rush that we can't stop and relax while making a sandwich or needing a potty break.You never know when someone may decide he should be in front of you.At home we both sleep sitting in our chairs in front of the TV so the windshield becomes our realtime tv screen.I have enough problems running my own life so if you want to walk around or sleep go for it.

My DW has got up and done almost everything except get me a beer. In 15 years of MH everytime she has gotten up while I am driving I have asked her to bring me a beer. You would think that once in 15 years she would bring one. ( and no I don't drink and drive)

All you did was ask her to bring you one. You didn't say you were going to drink it.

After all this time if she did bring me a beer I might be so shocked that I might just stop and drink it.

As far as I'm concerned, if DW wants to get up and do stuff, go nap, etc., that's her decision. She's old enough to make her own decisions and face her own consequences. If she needs to use the washroom, I ask if she wants me to stop or not.

My daughter, on the other hand, as the driver, is my responsibility and she'll be buckled up. She needs to use the washroom, we'll stop.

Everyone -- DW and grandkids -- stay buckled in when the wheels are turning. Pit stops and meal breaks are done while pulled over and stopped somewhere. Actually, I'm amazed at the number of responses saying people are up and moving around. To each his own I suppose, but do y'all actually think the laws of physics don't apply inside an RV?
