I wave at everyone, I don't always pay attention if they wave back, nor do I note the frequency of someone returning the wave.

My mom taught me to be civil to everyone, not only to those who return the civility. I've learned to do so is just easier than worrying about it.

Generally, I wave if able to (road and traffic conditions permitting). Also, sometimes notice others wave but not the time or conditions to respond. I'm also a biker and will signal a "HI" as well. Seems the time of the year also effects the response. Early spring and late fall, almost everyone responds back. Sturgis Rally time, almost never. lol Go figure. "Hi All"

I'm an avid motorcyclist, put about 20,000 miles a a summer on our Harleys, I wave at everyone on 2 wheels, scooter, dirtbike, honda, I don't care as long as it has 2 wheels your cool with me. I waved at quite a few RVers but seldom get a wave back, not sure of they are afraid to let go of the wheel with one hand, too cool, or just didn't see me, oh well motorcyclists and jeep people understand.
SDCOToyhaul if you wave at everybody at Sturgis you would be riding with only one hand on the handlebars the entire week.

I think a solution to this waving is to wave like the moter cyclist do. Hang your arm out the window, hang it low, straight down with palm facing foreword. Everyone can see the wave this way. We could even show a upside down peace sign, this would be specific only to rvers. The only problem I can see is maybe getting tire burn if you are in a class A. Lol

I keep my coach blacked out inside (shades pulled in back) and sometimes lower the front shade pretty low in the sun. I wave, but often it's too dark for people to see me or for me to see them. I wave when another coach passes mine and I always give them the lights.

We like to camp in National and State and local parks. We've had a DP for over ten years and are often looked at like were from outer space in small parks. Usually not a lot of DP's where we go, I make it a habit to say hi to the neighbors. I find other RVers interesting and I like to yack.

Im a waver to. I might be stating the obvious but to those who dont get return waves did it occur that the rvers eyes might be focused elsewhere? I wave but I often miss some and sometimes I clue in at the last second and wave to late.
