    Only been a motorhomer for a few weeks and to be honest hadn't really been looking at other drivers. Then today I caught the eye of someone else in a motorhome and he waved at me.

    I thought, "Do I know him?", then it happened twice this afternoon. Is this a coincidence or is this a motorhome thing, in which case should I be waving at every motorhome I see in case they think I'm rude :Sad:.

    Brian.

    Not everyone does but it makes moterhomers feel beter so why not.

    It shows your happy with your lot. IMO

    Enjoy it

    If you feel as if you want to, a lot do and some don't, having a motorhome does kind of make you a member of a huge community, just wait until you are on a camp site and lift the bonnet and pretty quick you will have various men joining you.

    If they wave and it's better than ours, we ignore them as they are only trying to show off.
    If they wave and it's older than ours, we still ignore them as we are better than them.
    If they come a' knocking we set the dog on them.
    If they don't, we call them stuck up.

    But once on the meet at Waldegraves, hey, it's party time and we are equal amongst equals.

    Feeling bad

    I feel bad now, for the last few weeks I haven't been waving. (I didn't know the rules). But maybe it doesn't count if they know you haven't seen them.

    I probably should be watching the road, but from now on I will wave like a nutter at absolutely everyone. If I am watching the road then I will get the other half to wave on my behalf.

    If they don't wave back I will hunt them down and tell them that you lot said they should have waved. :Blush:

    I notice that bus drivers and train drivers always wave. I wonder what other form of transport waves.

    I have been a car driver, motorcyclist and cyclist and have never been waved at, so I kinda feel special now in my motorhome.

    Do you have to do extra waves if you spot they have a motorhomefun sticker in their window?

    I was waved at by Triumph Spitfires when I had one, and also by MGBs when I had one. Since I started campering I have had 2 Autosleepers, which were easily identifiable, and was always waved at. The current van is a blue WildAx and looks like any builder's Citroen Relay, so no one waves, and I really miss it! :cry: :cry:
