According to my friend Steve-O whom I've known for years and is a long-distance truck driver, two major things make him and many other professional drivers nervous about following an RV.

1) RV drivers not securing their dinghy properly.

2) Driving too fast in gusty wind conditions, especially 5th wheels, and especially out west here.

There was a accident in CT a couple of weeks ago involving a TT & TV losing controll and flipping over on the interstate highway just a few miles from my house. The part of the highway where the accident was had very steep hills and that day it was also very windy. Luckly I believe no one was seriously hurt.


Generally I go 62 to about 67 mph and rarely do I pass any Rvers....and the highways here on the east coast are NOT straight and long.... dry.gif
