I wish I had a picture but then again I am telling on myself. Many years ago, my wife and I purchased a used 30' bumper pull. It appeared to be in good shape but found later that there was a lot of hidden damage, the biggest being a water leak. Well we took it on its maiden voyage to a campground about 2 hours away. Halfway during our week long stay, the a/c quit. Turned out the fan blade was brittle and came apart. No local shop could get one for several days. Determined not to end our stay early- this was June and in the mid 90's, I went to Walmart and purchased a window a/c unit. The camper had 2 entry doors so I used cardboard and filled in the door and made a cut out for the window unit. The window unit was then supported with 2x8's that I had cut up for leveling boards that I didn't need. We finished camping the rest of the week. I am sure everyone around just laughed at the Clampetts that were camping. I ended up fixing the a/c and repairing the water leak. A friend then purchased the camper to take to his hunting land.

Seeing a regular house window AC unit in a trailer is almost a common occurrence for me anymore. I don't even look twice when I see it.

We see window unit A/C's in tents all the time around here during the summer. And we also see a lot of tents in full hookup sites, so they can run those A/C's.

Some tents have a flap for it. Go figure.

Saw this today in a parking lot for the Washington Island Ferry. Instead of taking the ferry trip I'd have spent my time getting a new tire!! This one "may" have "issues." Not a real good photo, but you get the idea.

Agree that he needs a usable spare, but maybe he's trying to show the world how sorry the state of trailer tires has become...in many cases.

Just don't know what to say! Guess you could sleep on the back when the weather gets to rough?
