I feel real bad, I haven't seen anyone to criticize, am I supposed to look for things that might not look right? I just tend to mind my own business and have a good time camping.

I think the point is that many of these situations have significant potential to impact the safety of other people.

Sometimes the show is just fun to watch............

This last week we met a lot of nice people including the guy in his 70s that I was talking to, he said his just came to set the trailer up so the women could have their week camping & he could go home & have some peace.

I could hear one say darn (the other word) men don't do nothing so ya got to learn how to do things yourself. ..........It was very entertaining

But if that was the case, we would be seeing the results in the media constantly, but, we see the odd one here as soon as it happens so statistically it just does not add up.

So true! Same with refrigerators blowing up gas stations and truck frames breaking.

Maybe farm subsidies not as rich up your way but DW works with farmers...LA, MS, GA, FL...I always hear the stories how times are tough but DW sees the wife in the caddy or BMW and husband in the latest diesel rig parked at their lavish homestead...probably a regional advantage...either way, you can't take it with you so live large!

[QUOTE=acadianbob;696701]1) A Ford Escape pulling a 5,500 lb Airstream! Just about double the tow vehicle's maximum rating. Being pulled from Toronto to Winnepeg. 3,000 RPM on the flats; 4,500 RPM on a hill; according to the owner.


I bet i know the dealer that set him up with that rig! I have seen a Honda Odessy towing a triple axle presidential Airstream that weights 9200 lbs!

Saw an El Camino pulling an old school 5'ver. Scariest thing I've ever seen. Should have snapped a picture.
