Ciao Fabio!

(Isn't the internet wonderful?)

You have a very nice trailer. I notice the "70" and "80" stickers on the back. Are you limited to these speeds when towing?

For our latest outing goto post #33 on

Thank's Roger and Norm,

@Roger, yes, the italian tow limits for caravans are 43,5 mph on common roads and 49.7 on highways. Every european country has own limits. The French and Belgian are the fastest 130/120 Km/h, I think with special permission. Read "Gespanne" on this german link http://www.autokiste.de/verkehrsrecht/tempolimits.htm And what are the limits for towing in the US/Canada?

Cheers

Thanks for the interesting link. Do I understand correctly that the autobahn now has speed limits?

I well remember traveling at 240kph in a Mercedes driven by a friend from Bad Segeburg. One really covered ground at those speeds.

I remember doing about 200 kph on the autobahn and we were passed by something that went by us so fast I though it was a plane. it was gone before I could finish gasping.

One thing about autobahn drivers is they stay to the right, move over for faster traffic always and respond to the flash of a light from behind.

AFAIK there are well speed limits, it depends on the qualities of the germ autobahn, but when there's the "no limit" sign 130 Km/h is the "reccommended speed"

Take care, Fabio.

Hi: Rolf Dobelli...We have limits in Canada...but they are more about endurance than speed. The sign may say 100KPH but how long can you stand to be passed by everything and everybody?
The Police only get interested if you're over 120KPH. 80KPH and 90KPH on secondary Highways and people pass with frightening speed.
I thought that with gas priced at $1.30 CDN. per Liter motorists would slow down...but I was wrong!!!
You must know that it takes aprox. 7hrs. to cross Ontario from side to side and that's only one Province of the country!!!

Fabio..... nice looking trailer. Several years ago, we were in your area. We circled from Milan, Cinque Terra,Venice, Dolomites, Lake Como and back to Milan in rented car. If there was a way to bring the trailer, it would be very nice. Beautiful, gorgeous country!!! Guess were pretty close to you in Padova. Hope to come back someday.

Buonasera,

@ Alf: gas (benzina) is priced about 2 canadian dollars or 2.10 USD per liter here and in germany too, hope i'm right with convertion, but the people don't care. Adrenalin addiction? E.g. youtube "autobahn"...... The truckers here use to drive 80+5+10=95 kph (allowed speed+tolerance+minimum fine), but there are some "Truck-Schumachers" too, so i mostly stay away from highways like Milan-Venice, it's too dangerous.

@ Chris: Great tour, Cinque Terre is a green jewel, Dolomites and Venice are beautiful too. Yes, You travelled close to Padova, let me now next time. I never was in America, except a tour in Southamerica, Brazil, 20 years ago. Muito Lindo.

Ciao a tutti

Somehow, that one looks like a cartoon tugboat I remember if it was painted blue!

Red face Simply beautiful

Hi Rolf, I love your little RV it is very charming. It sort of has the same square egg look as my Aer-Flo. I hope you enjoy many years of great memories exploring the great outdoors. You certainly have a beautiful country to visit.

Thank's Alison for your wishes, I need they......with two kids at school there's never time for travelling . Fortunately it's soon finished. Your square egg Aer-Flo is very nice.

Kind regards
