    We'd wave at you movan.
    I know what you mean though.
    We all wave , at all the MH's old ,new ,massive , tiny and everything in between , even the odd hire van:Laughing:
    We just say miserable old gits , if they dont wave back !! Makes us feel better.
    We are surprised at how many dont wave , and we do look like a MH from the front as the luton has windows all round.

    I recently went from Plymouth to Bath and waved at over 20 motorhomes. Not one waved back. :Sad: The wife said its because we are on a dual carraigeway or motorway. We went to Taunton and Tiverton over the weekend, again no one waved back. :Sad: The wife says that I am waving wrong. On the way back to Plymouth we came via Torrington and I waved a girlie type wave. Again, no one waving back. The wife says we look too much like a white van but I say that if I can tell an ordinary white van from a van conversion then why can't anyone else? :Angry: I am now looking at having more transfers on the front of the van to de-white van man the van.:thumb: If this fails I shall just give up and be a miserable old G*t.:moon:

    we are new MH's and have loads of fun waving to others - always makes us laugh when we get a wave back especially if its a double (husband and wife!!!). Keep waving we'll get them in the end!!!!:BigGrin:

We shall have flags flying, baloons trailing behind us, lights flashing and fire belching from the grill on the front. There will also be a troop of dancing girls on the roof doing the can can. :Rofl1: Wave you b#*t@rds, wave:swear::BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:

    We just got back from 10 days in Cornwall, Ayrs campsite overlooking St Ives, stunning views and a fantastic site.

    http://www.ayrholidaypark.co.uk/holiday-park-tariff.php

    Well recommended, have to say most of the motorhomes we passed joined in with waving, and we saw loads.
    Not sure about the Topless Co Driver, we tried it but don`t think others liked my Hairy Chest... :Rofl1:

    Bloody hell £42 a night, we only paid £16 a night in Cornwall.
    We would want our motorhome washed and serviced for that.
    Hell same treatment for both be and the wife also...we wish :Rofl1:

    Who and where is this amazing campsite, just so we don`t waste our time looking at it.
