Lane Keep assist and adaptive cruise control.......I guess I can say "motorhome you got this" and then I can get up use the restroom and make a sandwich all the moving down the road?

Yes I am very familiar with these features. I like them on a car and truck, just not sure about a motorhome.......


Right, why buy a motorhome if you have to pull over to use the toilet?

I've never driven a vehicle with this feature. It sounds terrible. If I'm set at 70 and I come up on a vehicle doing 67 then I slow to 67? If he slows to 65 now I'm doing 65? That sounds terrible. Why wouldn't I pass the slower vehicle and be on my way? Is that not how it works? What do you like about this feature?

You should drive one and give it a try, I LOVE it. You can't always just move over and the system will automaticly slow down and then speed up again when the road is clear.

In my opinion, it is one of the BEST features on new vehicles. It was a requirement for the last two vehicles I bought, and is one of the features that would make me consider upgrading my truck.

It might not be as useful on the open road, but if you drive in traffic it is a great feature. Set cruise at whatever speed, and it maintains a steady distance from the vehicle ahead of you. From a dead stop all the way up to the speed you set.
