    We recently downsized from coachbuilts, which we have owned for some years, to a new Autosleeper van conversion.

    We still wave at other motorhomes as frantically as ever!

    But it does appear that quite a lot fewer wave back than did when we drove coachbuilts.

    Perhaps we look too much like a van from the front????

    It's very simple for us A class. Another A class, hand off the wheel and wave, C Class lift all fingers off the wheel to acknowledge their presence, conversion is just the index finger :Rofl1:

    I wish they would stop building horse boxes that look like coachbuilts. I never ever get a wave back.:Rofl1:

    Wave

    And with coffee in one hand and a sandwich in the other, it would be difficult. Funniest one we have seen, a few years back, was an A class which we waved to, and as we did, a very large rabbit which they had on the top of the dash, raised both it's ears in reply. Made us smile. Wonder where they got it? It might even have been a Funster I suppose.:BigGrin:

    I think you need to change your MHF name immediately - you are now a campervan and that's why no-one waves to you :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I'm frequently reminded by the OH of the time I waved to a bus (well it looked like a MH at a distance):Doh:
