We need to know about official motorhome waving etiquette.

Our moho is a Hymercar PVC with Motorhomefun stickers on front and rear.

Should we wave at all motor caravans including coach built, A Class and PVC or are we only allowed to wave at PVC or should we only wave at all Hymer motorhomes.

Sometimes it can be be difficult to spot an actual PVC motorhome from a distance and have enough time to wave.

Other times we can feel a bit self-conscious being in a PVC and waving forlonely at a massive liner passing by.

Advice please.

Sedge used to wave at Mohos when driving her car too, and yes people probably thought she was a mad woman - so you're by no means alone in doing that, don't worry about it.

When in our Moho - we get far more waves in France than we ever do in Britain, but there again, the state of the traffic these days here, it's debatable whether waving is a good thing or not .….. We have this ongoing conversation along the lines of 'OK you miserable git!' - so the next Moho you don't bother waving and they do, you can't win! - so - just please yourselves!

When I was into to classic cars I’d wave at others as seeing each other on the road was quite unusual, but waving at hundreds of motorhomes......no, I don’t think so. That said, I’d probably wave at another Weinsberg PVC as we’re few and far between.

Having said that, some only wave to Ocado or Waitrose vans, as they are Mercs with double wheel rear axles.

Cover your rear end and wave to all vans, just in case eh?:LOL:

People stopped waving back to us so I don't bother now, in fact I don't even look to see if they wave anymore. It's a bit silly anyway 😏

Had a French van coming towards me both driver and passenger raised both hands and waved like loonies. Bet they wouldn't speak to me if they were next to me on an Aire.

It's called the "brexit" wave:LOL:

35 years ago (I just done the math) when travelling in Europe you waved as Brit registrations were not every other vehicle. Then a few years ago when travelling for some time with a coach driver who was driving for a very large intercity express service (you know the one red white and blue) he was like one of those Chinese cats at every vehicle in the same livery.
Wave or not to wave buy a cat shove it on the front and wave to everyone. 1583667477662.png

I have to admit, I'm too busy to wave and like someone has already mentioned, you could wave back at someone and then park next to them and they probably wouldn't even say hello? It's what makes you happy I suppose.
I dont wave at all black cars when I'm not in the van so why should I wave at all mohos.
"I didn't see the cars had stopped in front officer, I was waving at the Autotrail going the other way" hope the judge understands?
