Buying used from Germany

It's the second time I've been told this and I am on my second fairly major replacement of a rusted out part. That is that the Germans use salt on their roads and that causes a lot of rust. In fact on dealer told me that the Germans won't buy their used campers and so they bring them into Italy to sell.

If you have questions about touring, living, driving, etc in Italy message me.

And the point is?

What countries don't use salt on the roads?

That's a good question. I think that Italy uses very little salt or salt and a mixture of gravel or just gravel. But I can't find the actual facts. Salting roads is somewhat controversial; it has an environmental impact and it causes lots of corrosion from cars to bridges and such.

If you have questions about touring, living, driving, etc in Italy message me.
