Hmmm well just days ago an acquaintance was telling me how her elderly parents had run off the road and been killed while towing their caravan. Makes you think. And unfortunately Suzi IME all too often caravanners and camper vans do not pull over to let others pass.
When you've driven several million miles on country roads as I have you do get pretty fed up.
Nossie there are plenty of selfish road users and not all are those with caravans!

I would agree not all caravan towers and motor home punters are selfish. Those that aren't simply don't have the skill sets to competently drive an articulated vehicle or the road sense to understand what a mobile chicane is.

I have to admit that the only "hitch" driving wise in Tassie I had was an older couple in a mobile home who travelled at 40kmh in a 100km zone. Not only did they not pull over at any opportunity but when the road widened and was straight they moved out over the centre line.
For the most part mobile home drivers did move over, but strangely enough they were all young people….
Thnakfully OP has chosen not to drive during a school holiday period and I am sure the 3 in convoy will be very considerate to the other drivers on the road, who may well have a deadline and allowed plenty of time to get where they are going but not for being held up for 40km in one go .. :)
