I think that the difference between toll roads North America and some other parts of the world is that here they are not common, they are mostly in urban areas, and drivers are usually not required to use them to find a reasonable route. In some countries, it seems that the only good routes are toll roads.
Ciao Brian,
La tua osservazione è molto buona,
se una persona vuole arrivare in una città velocemente... in Italia deve pagare
In Italia ci sono strade alternative ma sono molto lente
Questa è la mappa delle autostrade a pagamento in Italia
Esse sono tante...

Your observation is much good
if a person wants arrive in one city fastly ... in Italy she must pay
In Italy there are alternative's roads but they are much slow
This is the map of the payment's freeways in Italy.
they are many...

It is possible travel in this way in USA/Canada?
Becaus in Italy it would be prohibited!
E' possibile viaggiare in questo modo?
Perché in Italia sarebbe proibito.

Thank's Cindy

Rob

The trunk (We call it a cooler.) covers a window air conditioner. When we camp, we take the trunk off, so the air conditioner can run. The cooler is actually cut into two parts, so it does not extend out much further than the spare tire does. I uploaded pictures of my husband putting it together. We painted the red cooler blue. The spare tire is not attached in the picture, so I added a picture of the camper in front of a mountain carving of Crazy Horse. In this picture, you can see both the cooler and the spare tire on the camper.

That's interesting that this would be illegal in Italy. If you look at the pictures of people's campers on this forum, there are a lot of campers with things that extend off the rear of the camper.

While most Canadian provinces and U.S. states have laws regarding bumpers, and what can protrude past them, I don't think they are really applied to trailers.
Mentre i maggior parte delle le province canadesi e dei Stati Uniti dichiara avere leggi per quanto riguarda i respingenti e che cosa può sporgere oltre loro, non penso che realmente si applichino ai carvan.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I understand, Brian

for example... If I would attached a spare tire in the exterior rear of the caravan I risk 250/300 Euro infraction....
...and than the my spare tire is in the caravan under the posterior dinette

Per esempio... se io volessi attaccare una ruota di scorta nella parte esterna posteriore della caravan io rischio 250/300 euro di multa.
...e allora la mia ruota di scorta è nella mia caravan sotto al tavolo posteriore.

Well, I guess I will not ship my camper over to Europe when we make the trip we are talking of making. I did look into the cost, but I am not sure we saved the piece of fiberglass we cut from our Burro for the air conditioner.

Great-looking steaks! I am just going to have to find my Italian textbooks and dictionary. I took 3 weeks in college but only remember two words that I will not write here. I can follow much of your forum, as I was a French major in college.

Looks like a great time!

Cindy

Grazie Rob,

I'll have to try Limoncello.

I was afraid it was like Grappa which I tried once. I still have not recovered.

Ciao, Morgan

I'd be cautious about Limoncello, too. It has that smooth and sneaky character that can lead to excessive consumption, a bit like those tropical fruit and rum drinks. I have only had it in an Italian restaurant in Vancouver, where the owner delivered a complimentary round with a mischievous grin.
Sarei prudente considerazione Limoncello, anche. Ha che carattere regolare e "sneaky" che può condurre a consumo eccessivo, ad una punta come i quei alle bevande del frutta tropicale ed rum. Lo ho avuto soltanto in un ristorante italiano a Vancouver, in cui il proprietario ha trasportato un tondo gratuito con un grin maligno.

On a 23 hour flight from Johannesburg to Houston, the flight attendant kept plying me with Bailey's Irish Cream. I thought, "hey, this is pretty good milk."

I missed my connecting flight in Houston.
