I've got over 2,000,000 safe miles behind the wheel of an 18 wheeler. My CB stays turned off except when absolutely needed. There is way too much hostility on the road these days. All I need is to listen to everyone blasting everyone else or me. If you buy one you will find out for yourself what I mean. That being said, there are times when they are indispensable. I use Google traffic maps for real time traffic on my smartphone as the traffic on the GPS is almost useless. I like the idea of RVers using a separate channel like 13. You can buy a cheap CB at most truck stops and that is all I would recommend. Back in the day people actually use to use CB radios to help each other... not anymore.

We used a couple of small hand held radios on our trip to Az this fall. The reason we brought them is because we took two vehicles this year. They are aaa powered and we just turn them on and leave them on while traveling. We use them because the cell phones don't always have a connection. We don't use a busy channel.
2011 Eagle 330RLTS with just about every option.
2017 Silverado 1500 4x4 5.3 with tow package.

I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left.

Keep a portable cB handy when we run into road or weather issues. Helps to give you a heads up on jams or accidents and when to exit the interstate ahead of the problem before you get trapped. Generally its off unless conditions or traffic dictates some extra travel help.
