Driving an RV in Switzerland

Jump to last reply

We are renting a small 2 person RV in Munich and will dr driving through Switzerland and Northern Italy back to Munich for 5weeks in September 2015.
Most people seem to think we are mad and should be using the trains. We hate staying in hotels and love the freedom of the RV.
We would love to hear from others who have done this so that we know we really aren't mad and that it is possible.
I won't be driving but my husband was a professional driver before he retired. Drove petrol tankers in Australia. He also drove from London to Australia 40 years ago, not all the way obviously, but did go through Afganistan and Himalayas in an old London ambulance. Point being, he is not a novice.
We would love any tips on campsites, parking in around towns, passes in the Alps, especially Furka and St. Gothard.
What not to miss that is not on the usual tourist list.
Hope there are some other RVers out there who can help us.
Cheers
