It may be legal in some states, but still can't understand why anyone would do it.

If truckers can stay in their trucks overnight in a rest area, why can't we stay in our 5'r in a rest stop? We've done it in Iowa on our way to Branson many times with no problems....

Just ride in a trailer/5w around a parking lot with speed bumps. That should be your answer. In regards to stoping in a rest area,if I am tired I am going to stop! Youroo!!

When Amy is tired of driving she just pulls over to.
Sometimes she wakes me sometimes she don't.

I couldn't imagine putting my family back there. But I've considered sleeping back on the bed (over the kingpin) when we're headed down the highway.

Not sure I'd ever do it- the few pictures of crashes I've seen look pretty brutal.

That said- how is it much/any different than being up and moving around in a motorhome? Or does everyone strictly stay buckled up in them?

I'd put an ex wife and MIL back there but not my kids.

It's hard to believe that it is still allowed anywhere.

Rod, the subject is about traveling in a trailer while moving. Nothing wrong with staying in it once you've parked it somewhere.

I'd have to imagine that a motorhome's suspension is a lot more substantial - and comfortable - than a travel trailer's, and a motorhome is designed to carry passengers at speed. I'm not sure a travel trailer is designed to meet those highway passenger standards. Just my speculation.
