I was thinking of painting this on the cover for our spare tire... anyone think this is a bad idea??
I thought of this the last time we were towing our trailer, and people kept riding up on us, trying to bully us down the road. I know there isn't a whole lot you can do about rude drivers, but I thought maybe this would be a kinder way of getting their attention.
Please don't take offense to what I am about to say. I just wish you and others on this board would just think about it. As an owner of travel trailers all my adult life, I can see both sides of this issue. I am not accusing anyone of being inconsiderate. This post just came a the right time to let me vent after being # 32 behind a Scamp
to day for a frustrating 20 miles.
I live in a high desert community near a very popular lake and summer vacation destination.
The largest city with a Costco is 40 miles away.
The last 30 miles to the lake is through a very narrow, twisty and beautiful canyon. Myself and other local residents have been driving this canyon for years. I have driven in the Canyon with my Scamp
and EVERY TIME I had someone behind me I pulled over and let them pass. I have pulled my Scamp
through the Rockies and still I managed to pull over when I had someone behind me.
Returning home today I was the 32nd vehicle in line behind what appeared to be a 13' Scamp towed by a van. I was forced to drive the entire canyon at about 20 to 25 miles at hour. Normal speed most to the way is about 40 to 50 miles an hour.
I realize that the canyon is a beautiful drive especially to someone that has never driven it before. I also appreciate that there is a certain amount of hesitation when an inexperienced mountain driver tackles a road such as this for the first time.
I have driven this road for the last five years and have found that there are 2 types of RVers. There are the polite and considerate individuals who enjoy the beautiful scenery but do not take it upon themselves to tell others how fast they can drive and use the pull outs when ever possible. Thankfully most RV owners fall
into this category.
Then there is the minority that are arrogant, inconsiderate, non thinking twits that don't care about anyone but themselves and bully other people into going slower than they could safely be going.
Thanks for letting me vent. Please, think about what I said and put yourself in the place of the person without the trailer.
