Me too! Not any of those index finger jobs for me. People frequently stare at our rig anyway and when I think they can see me, I throw up my hand and give them a "Hi y'all, I'm glad you're out here enjoying life like me, hope you have FUN today" wave! Doesn't matter whether they wave back or not. What they do is none of my business.

I like the flashing headlights once idea.......think we'll do that
It takes thousands of nuts to hold a truck together and only one to scatter it all over the highway.

Hi Ho: We returned from the city of Jena in east Germany about 3 weeks ago. As you know, this part of Germany was communistic until about 19 years ago. It is sad how closed the older people are. No one waves or says "hello", so we decided to say "hi" to everyone as we were walking in the park. Some finally said "Hi" back. America is a great place. People are naturally friendly. I am thankful after 1 1/2 years to be back among them. We really appreciate friendly people and will wave when we can.

I wave to everyone while walking down my street and say hello and good morning, every morning.

I have waved to passing RV'ers on many occasions a lot of the times no response. Some times the other drivers beat me to the punch and I wave back.

For 12 years I had a 1993 Corvette Torch Red with White convertible top and always waved at the other passing Corvettes while driving most always received a wave back. A two finger wave forming a "V" like in vette. Thought about using it for my toad however that would have required an enclosed trailer.
So I sold it and bought the Sunfire. Not as much fun but easier.

We Wave! Never quite sure if folks see us but we wave anyway. DH tried a red glove on a flyswatter but that took too long.

We also have a goofy looking longnecked rubber bird I wave at truckers as we pass them. I've seen many of them break up laughing and then give us a friendly wave as we go beyond them.

Most of the time we see people pointing to Clancy who often navigates from her seat on the dash.

When we had our Jeep Rubicon...nobody waved...

I have vw's (bug & bus)...nobody waves...actually people who don't have them wave or chat with me at the gas station ect...

As for the RV....still nobody waves...

Yeah, I remember the good 'ol days.

By the way, I did get a wave from a motorcycle. When I passed a car in our TC and got back over to the right, not holding up the cyclist coming up my back side, he gave a "thank you" wave. Plus got the thumbs up wave, another cyclist when in my '58 vw bus...
