Today I was heading home from work when I came across an older couple who pull off I49 onto the shoulder. He was pulling a tow behind camper and I normally do not stop for people, because you never know what may happen. Today I saw what I call a fellow camper in need and stopped to see if I could help. Thankfully there was no mechanic failure and he was only stopping to check his trailer because it was swaying more than normal.
Pulling off the shoulders of an interstate is not always a good idea due to high traffic and speeders as most of you know already, but mechanical problems can dictate otherwise. Its always best to pull off at the next exit to at least give a safety zone to check out our campers. If you see someone in need, it is each persons choice to stop and help. Safety of yourself comes first and always pull your vehicle in front of theirs giving you quick access out if needed and observer the situation before offering help from your vehicle.
For most, helping fellow campers is helping family. We meet the best people at campgrounds.
