Do you wave?

Just seems natural to wave when passing another Sprinter RV on the road. Not many wave back. Do you wave when you pass another Sprinter RV? Just Interstates? All Class B's? Never?

I give all Airstreams a happy to see you wave. I have never had an Interstate/Sprinter/B return my courtesy wave.

IMHO WBCCI members and Vintage Airsteam Owners are much more likely to wave. I also think Sprinters don't fit the Airstream iconic archetype and are likely to be not recognized as such. Does anybody remember the Airstream purist debate about if Argosy Owners should be allowed to join WBCCI?

I wave at everyone, even the occasional silver milk tanker that I sometimes mistake for a vintage polished Airstream at a distance.

I wave at the few I see but most of time there's a wide median strip that precludes being able to see if the other driver sees me and/or waves back.
Glass half full or half empty to an engineer is simply a glass that was over designed.

I wave, but it seems that the only time they see me waving or I see them waving back is when one of us is passing the other, and we see each other through the side windows.

I always wave. I missed a silver Interstate in Harrison AR. yesterday, My wife couldn't believe I didn't wave. I said I totally missed that one!

I find myself waving at Cox Communications Sprinter Vans, so if your Airstream is white, I may not wave at you

Typically flash my lights at all B Vans and Airstream trailers. I will wave if I can really see them and they can see me.
