However, I've heard there are issues with safety, we've driven these routes before in a car and pulled up for a few hours sleep. Is there really a significant risk stopping in a motorhome for a few hours as compared to a regular overnight parking spot?
There is an increased risk I suppose of you encountering problems and its well documented but as Jan says they never had any in 18+ years so its a case of you pay your money you take your chance. Are you in a rush? Some great places to see on the way to Austria, why not find a few nice Stellplatz using Camper Contact or the Bord Atlas and see a bit of Germany? You may also find that there is a perfectly good Stellplatz just off your route as well.

that.

we've stopped at Stellplatz just off the autobahns when driving through Germany - in fact there's a very good one just before Munich at one of Germany's largest caravan/motorhome dealer centre (see and be amazed!) - http://www.derfreistaat.de/en/home/ - at Sulzemoos. it's about a 2min drive off the autobahn and has a free stellplatz area with EHU if needed (small charge). https://www.campercontact.com/en/ger...aspx?fromsso=1
