Greeting Rver's on the Road

Hi Everyone!
Dear hubby and I were just wondering, what type of shout out do you give to other RVs on the road. Do you wave, toot your horn, flick your lights?.. Hum...just wondering .. .Safe travels....

On the freeway we give a wave when being passed and wife waves when we pass another (almost never pass) On 2 laner in the boonies we wave at oncoming. Not many wave back anymore.

Wife and I always wave at oncoming but I bet we are not always visible because of windshield glare. Doesn't matter. We still wave.
The odd time we see another Triple E Signature there are usually big waves and smiles from both sides.

We are wavers, too. Prolly get it timed right about half the time (judging by the wave-backs). Class A's are the easiest to see, though others may be waving, too. \ken

Don't wave on the highway but do on the slower secondary roads.

I wave but sometimes I get distracted and don't.
I will always wave if I'm passing another RVer.

We wave 90% of the time, we have never had anyone wave back, we especially wave at folks driving Sigs, but they must be to cool to wave back.. no offence to other sig owners. Just our perception.

We wave on 2-lane roads, but don't think most folks see it, especially if it's another Class A. I think they're too busy keeping as much separation between us as possible!

Wink A friendly wave is nice

I typically give a friendly wave to oncoming Class C's as that is what I'm driving. We don't do much passing and if I do both hands are on the wheel.

Whatever you wave at just remember to use all of your fingers.
