WOW, can I relate to this. We've argued about it a million times. I brake when I see the vehicle slowing, not necessarily when his brake lights come on.
My speed, which is somewhere around the speed limit isn't the issue. It's the idiots taking crazy chances to pass us. If I drive slower, then they're worse. If I can keep my speed up, maybe fewer of them will try to pass.
We've talked more about the camper/trailer yesterday. My concern is that we really won't be going anywhere more than once a month, maybe twice on a rare occasion. Leaving property unattended repeatedly for that length of time is a non-starter. She agrees and we're looking at our rental options.
Both dogs have never been camping, so there's the concern about how they may behave. This may sway the decision.
Thanks again for the info.
