That thing is obviously a Dodge. Look at all the smoke behind it. Probably loud too. Lol

I stopped to talk to the lady there, and she told me it has TWO bathrooms, and a house-style fridge among its various amenities. She said they are LIVING in it for the next 2 years while stationed at the base.
wow, is that SRW truck towing that thing.....

Saw one just like it parked next door at a campground in upper Michigan. I think everybody in the campground came around to look at it. Owned by a young couple, as compared to the wife and I. Got talking with the owner, He pulled it with a 3/4 ton pick up. I opened my yap and mentioned that the truck would be a lot over the GVWR. They had sold their house and were having a building renoed in the small town they lived in and were living in the trailer until the reno was done. He mentioned they were going to Sturgis pulling the 5er with the 3/4 ton. By the time we had left he came over and mentioned that he was going to buy a 1 ton dually he was looking at before going to Sturgis. He said he felt better and so did I. The 1 ton would barely be big enough for that 5er. An HDT would be great for it and I did mention that also. I forgot to mention that his was a toyhauler also.

No worries of theft or bumped heads.

Probably already happened before picture was taken

Seems like a good idea, but is that removable pin heavy and require two people to unhitch? I doubt if my DW will even want to help me take it off, she might end up dropping it on my foot because it was too heavy for her

Ditched the Jeep in favor of a mountain bike, TH is getting a custom 8 bike rack!
Self explanatory

LOL I've graduated from my old redneck special. It sure attracted a lot of attention wrapped in rope lights though!



Fridge and heat are really nice!
