NJ had them and it was a mess they eventually modified them to increase the flow of traffic. As for right and left side drive in St John U.S.V.I. you have left side drive cars but you drive on the left side of the road. Real fun for the passenger car coming at you and no control my right arm from my wife will never be the same.

Brings up a question in my mind. Apologies in advance if it is off topic.

Has anyone on this site ever seen a right drive motor home? Or for that matter, ever driven on the left side of the road?

I have seen videos from England, but never personally experienced it.

This is a right-side drive motorhome. I spotted it last year in Tokyo. You can barely see the steering wheel.

Not a motorhome, but I rented a Nissan Sunny in the Bahamas.

I was sitting in the car and the wife walked up and said " I'm not driving on the wrong side of the road !!" She didn't see the wheel in front of me.

Right hand drive and the left side of the road. Divided highway turns and traffic circles took a lot of concentration.

There are some American units modified for "wrong side drive" before shipped down under.

I know on American 5ers, before they can be used down under they need the doors on the opposite side (along with other things like air brakes, etc). Is the door swap or floorplan reverse true for MHs?

Have driven in Europe and U.S.V.I. and saw some RV's or as they called them Caravan's when we were over there.

Today's pet peeve. Actually, this is a frequent irritation for me. If you are going to bag it, take it away and throw it out. Otherwise, you are just littering in an even worse way then throwing out an empty plastic bag.

Believe it or not, saw a fiver go by in the left lane at about 75 MPH, when the max speed limit for towed vehicles was 60 MPH (South Carolina). It seems like there are some who would prefer to die or kill to arrive 10 minutes earlier.

He was about a hundred yards past us when the rearmost of his 3 right side wheels came off and went along the shoulder then down into the trees. We got past him Okay as he fishtailed to a stop in a cloud of smoke.

What could possibly be worth it to do 75 pulling a fiver?

Out here in the west, that is pretty normal, especially on highways with a speed limit of 80. Just need to make sure the trailer tires are rated for 75. Not sure what impact speed would have in the wheel actually coming off. He must have lost a spindle.

Agree - wonder why anyone would want to tow a big square box weighing more than the tow vehicle at those kind of speeds.

Returning from snow birding we had the same truck and trailer pass us on 4 separate occasions. Each time the lifted truck would wobble and the trailer would fish tail as the black smoke was pouring out. Probably got to his destination less than half an hour before we passed him again.

I do subscribe to the motto "live life each day like it is your last, one day it will be". I guess some may be trying to get there early.
