Some highways in Europe trucks are only allowed to use the right lane, period and some don't allow trucks on weekends unless time-sensitive like fresh or frozen food, etc. Interesting how some places deal with commercial trucking and limited highway tarmac.

Wife and I pulled into our first truck stop Monday and had to park among the trucks (no seperate RV parking). She was nervous that one of them would run over our little trailer. I mentioned which would she rather trust, a parking lot of profesionals or a campground full of drivers of unknown capability and training.

Glad someone brought up this subject. We just returned from a 3200 mile round trip vacation to South Dakota, via Branson. I run between 60 and 65 usually on cruise at 62. I was totally amazed at how many RV'ers blew past us. This was campers, 5vers, class c and class a. Some had to be doing 75 or 80, no joking. Truckers for the most part were not a problem, and there were lots of them. They were courteous and passed and followed with plenty of room to spare. They were far more safe than the majority of RV'ers that we encountered on the roads.

back in my driving days, I actually had somebody in an rv knock on my door in the wee hours at a rest area asking if I would turn my refrigeration unit off so he and his wife could get some sleep. I told him it would get quiet in about 2 more hours when I woke up and got moving again, but if it was that important, he could write me a fat check to cover the cost of the meat, my transportation home and to tide me over until I found a new job.

they were gone when I woke up a couple hrs later

Sometimes you have to wonder how some people manage to feed and dress themselves. To be so completely clueless is beyond comprehension, but I have seen evidence of it every day.
