Same here. They were cheap and it's true, always on, two way communication just like on the cell phone only without the delay.

We have a set of Motorolas (GMRS/FRS), which are very clear and convenient to use. They replaced a set of Radio Shack radios I bought back in the 80's. I bought a set of Midland's and they run down a set of batteries in about a month, whether used or stored in the glovebox. Those are designated for a yard sale.
Another use is, flea markets and yard sales, the Motorola's have a 15 mile range and work anywhere (unlike cell phones).

Just FYI: to get that range, you'll end up using features of that radio that will require a GMRS license...

An old RV walkie talkie story; DW directing DH backing onto lot gets him within inches of tree and just as she was going to say stop another woman across the campground keyed her mike and said to her DH "come on back".

As newbies we got a pair but very quickly found that hand signals were better for us. The mic in our rear camera in our DP is useless for this purpose since voices can't be heard over that roaring diesel.

We also tried cell phones for a while but got comfortable with hand signals and don't feel a need for voice coms now.

Good luck...

I rate backing in a "10" as a favorite campground show. Hooking up
the utilities rates a 9 although I have witnessed a "10" on occasion especially when the laws of nature are being tested, as in violating one of the two rules of plumbing, the one about something flowing uphill. Trailers, wether bumper pull or 5th wheel provide the longest amount of entertaiment. The various hand signals and profane language is just about on a par with the boat launch ramp ballet.
Understand that I am in no means passing judgement, for I once backed my flailing wife into a bayou. That little escapade rated a -10. Not good

We use them. Wife drives and I direct -- only time she actually listens to my directions...

Bought the little Motorola 2 radio set at CW when it was on sale. We tried it, but never use them for backing in. We use the mic in the rear view camera, and the DW performs an intricate ballet of seemingly unrehearsed, arm-flailing, hair-pulling, expletive-laden moves that eventually gets us close enough to shut down and hook up.

We DO use them at music festivals, flea markets, etc so we can split up and cover more ground.

Weve been using the cobra micro talk radios for several years, originaly for on the water when kayaking. After seeing a number of folks backing into trees or other non-movable objects and and the potential domestics " NO NO I MEAN MY OTHER RIGHT", we always use our radios. Small investment VS the negatives.
