So funny, to follow this thread!
As i now can see, the "german" reactions of people while they see our "rivet-queen" Bangles are approx. the same, than in Amerika!!!!
We also get dozens of "thumbs-up" while travelling, often folks double us on the freeway VERY slow and take a video clip with theis smartphones.
Once parked, people came along and asked, if we are now planing to install a movie set-up wuth this "beast"...!
The reactions of "normal- people, just passi g by, are mostly friendly and fun y as well, exspecially the kids are very amazed!
Not so kind people are the "typical" german RV'ers, mainly regired people with their "odd looking" 3.5 ton 18ft class C...! They OFTEN (!!!) are unfriendly, because, we "block" two spots with Bangles, THEY complain about the gas we "burn" to move just 2 persons, the "waist" of place in our Baby, because of the "clumsy" US floorplan. (Have you ever seen these "tiny homes" like ERIBA CAR, or BURSTNER...?!)
That's a german thing, i guess. German's often have "the better opinion", very few can just say "Congrates, well done".
We began to "filter" all these "inputs" and forgot about the jalous fellows!
Next week, we will leave with the family to our anual holyday, this year it will be a "bicicle tour" thru the Mosel- and Rhinevalley! Either Anja or me will drive "Bangles" to a nice spot beside the river and install the "base-camp". Once the "sports team" arrives, the barbecue is lighted...! We will spend nice evenings outside under the awning and make "family events" (hopefully stressless with two Puber boys...😬
Same procedure in the morning, the "butler" will take care of breakfast and cleaning, the "sports team" leave for their daily 25 to 30 miles by bicicle!
Sounds great to me, i will for sure meet many RVers and have for sure funny conversations...!
I will share my expiriences here and post pictures on the thread Peter started: "The adventures of Bangles in Europe"!
