Notice the big difference here?

This is a picture from a 1960's Ford Wagontrain Rally. I don't know what campground it is, but if you look closely the striking difference is the lack of pickups! Most of the campers were predominantly pulled by big, full frame, V8 wagons and sedans. For what it is, I love this picture! Enjoy!!!

Which is why I don't give much credence to the new weight police.

Honestly OC, besides the general body style the two are strikingly similar underneath!

Generally speaking, the engines, brakes, etc are much better today than in the 50's, 60's & 70's.

That goes without saying. I will admit to generalizing.

If you ask 10 people if they have common sense, I'm willing to bet all 10 say they do. Whether they actually do or not... I'm willing to bet one of them was the clown I saw in the newspaper last month jackknifed and flipped over on the highway towing a 30' rig with a Nissan SUV with no WDH. "Naw honey, it pulls fine, we'll be OK."
