Mega generator rear rack - on rig in campground

It was at the last campground and I saw it as we were leaving, so I won't get to talk to the owner.

This thing was mammoth. I posted it to Facebook and someone pointed out that it even has an extra axle added back there.

I'm a little surprised that this didn't solicit any comments given the discussion of bumper mounted things (and especially generators).

Well, it's in the General Community Discussion section of the forum... I'll bet if you posted this in the mods area the naysayers would be all over it. Personally, I'm jealous!

The extra axle way back there has to make for an interesting tow.

somebody really went to a LOT of trouble, time, and cost to 'build' such a beast, including the 'extra' axle underneath... crazy, for such a low cost travel trailer, but, every situation is different, and maybe that was the 'best' option for the time : )

Talking

I also noticed the 'matching' paint work - they really wanted to go 'all the way' with that one!

That was my first thought, wondering how it would turn corners without dragging it down to the sidewalls...

They did a nice job. I bet that both side doors are for dedicated propane. Pretty cool if ot was done right.

I would think it is for powering some kind of life sustaining equipt.

No idea. Completely best guess.

What do you think it might be?

You know, I have no idea. It must be heavy with those extra dolly wheels. I donít see an exhaust. You would think a generator that size would have a large exhaust. There looks to be some small intake vents along the top of one side.

Iím clueless as to what it is. Even if it was for life sustaining system, why would you need a generator that big in such a small trailer?

I thought if it was a generator, maybe the owner is a first responder to natural disasters....
