    I know I may be a little old fashioned or something like that. But enjoying travelling in my Accent I thought it would be nice to wave to those in their motorhomes on the road as we pass one another by...sadly :worried:very few want to wave back.
    Maybe some are concerned that I am the loon :nerd:who mum warned them about, maybe they are sleepdriving :snooze: or maybe they are not enjoying the freedom that motorhomes give to them ? But if you do feel the urge smile and :hi:wave to one another :hi:

    I always wave..... not only at other motorhomes but also small buses, delivery vans and the smaller horse boxes. Sometimes I forget and wave when I am driving the car, on my bike or even walking!!!!! :)

    EDIT: And I especially wave at other ducks. ::bigsmile:

    We don't wave at VW camper vans though - gave that up a long time ago as they never wave back. (Cue anti Hymer owner thread deviation...........)

    I always smile and wave. I look for funster stickers too but not seen any yet. I agree though, some people do look miserable and look at me like i'm bonkers!

    I have MHF stickers on windscreen and rear window of the motorhome. I also have an MHF card in the silly clipboard that Fiat have on the dashboard. Can't think of another use for said clipboard to be honest :) as it is fixed in plae.

    After reading a few things about waving, we tried it on our trip last week to test new van, and I have to be completely honest, unless it was an older style Mh or car I couldn't really even make out the driver or passenger clearly never mind tell if they were waving at us :(
    Might have been the sun or something but most windscreens seemed to be dark and couldn't see in. Nige said the same couldn't see through the windscreen glass.
    We did manage a couple of waves when going very slow such as junctions and got some back, but travelling along roads couldn't see inside.

    I get arm ache coming away from Home in Dover as there are TO MANY of the buggers going off to enjoy themselves abroad.
    Can I buy a waving hand to put into the screen?

    My wife is a waver.

    I do sometimes but always give the single finger salute to the miserable sods who don't return my wife's waves.(y)

    If I spot a Motorhome I usually weave I would say 70% wave back. :)

    We waved and got waved at most of the time in our last Motorhome. It had a Luton cab. Bed above the driving bit .
    Since we've had one similar to yours @sylvester1954 @Milliemobile a Peugeot xlwb panel van conversion. We don't get waved at unless it's a PVC. :(
    Oh well . We'll live....
