You are almost surely from Texas, but driving out of state or (as another suggested) on a really narrow road.

Stay freindly anyway.

I finally had to respond to this after reading this posting a few days ago. I all in favor of waving at the occassional RVer I encounter going down the road, much as I do the occassional biker when out on our motorcycle. But sometimes it's just not practicle or safe such as when at a rally where you may encounter hundreds or even thousands of fellow enthusiasts or be negotiating a turn or heavy traffic. I still shake my head in wonder and amuzement over the person I encountered in 1997 at the Sturgis motorcycle rally while out in the mountains on the very busy needles highway which if you haven't been on is full of curves and switchbacks and narrow one lane sections. There was estimated over 800,000 motorcyclists in the Sturgis and surrounding area that week and when going around a sharp switchback a rider from the opposite direction was waving at everyone and trying to negotiate the turn at the same time! There are times it's just not safe to be friendly! I know you aren't talking about this type of situation but I wanted to share this with you.

Some are probably driving "white knuckled" with their big rigs and don't dare take a hand off the steering wheel to offer a wave.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming

People who own VW vanagons and buses are great about waving and acknowledging other VWs as they pass. However, VW Eurovan owners are not. I've found it pretty rare to get a wave or acknowledgement from them.

I haven't had the motorhome long enough to see how people respond to it/me while driving.
I only bought mine 4 weeks ago so I'm still scoping out every RV I pass and wondering about their floor plans.

Where I grew up, most everyone simply lifted a finger (NO...not that one! ) when meeting an oncoming car. I do now occasionally but try and keep my hands on the wheel. I guess many drivers could wave with their cell phone clutched in their hand.
