Actually, no Bob - this is the brand new super secret Berkshire, Submarine edition, that will be released at the Hershey show this year - you are gonna get in trouble for posting that photo from the Forest River secret test area!

Yeah but it's a redneck thing - folks north of the Mason-Dixon line wouldn't understand Bama Rambler

(and yep, we see tents with window A/Cs propped up on coolers all the time )

Spotted last weekend...



Yes, those are German plates. MIL talked to the same folks at a campground the week before and they are part of a group - they had their campers shipped to Argentina and have been working their way north. This summer they will end up in Vancouver where they'll all be shipped home.

I could definitely use this setup. Probably packs down into a nice package. I like it.
And what's wrong with tents having a/c

Boy Scout summer camp two years in a row, I used a 5000 BTU air conditioner. Makes it nice for sleeping in the humid Louisiana summer.

I'm glad you cleared that up for me, Bob. I actually thought it was the final inspection station at FR where they check for water leaks.

Here's something I saw in a campground a couple of years ago. He was living in a burrow not more than five feet from the rear of our trailer. My apologies to any arachnid lovers on our forum, but I couldn't sleep at night knowing he was out there so I was the instrument of his demise.

This is also a good reason to quit tent camping and buy a FR trailer.

You should have just thrown a saddle on it and road it out of town....

The DW would have made me move the unit even after I killed it. I can hear the screams now about that thing hitchhiking it's way to our house and having babies.

Some things I just don't show her.

That would be me screaming from the other side of the campground while my wife is laughing her but off. I also would have either pulled the shotgun out or torched the place.
Did I mention I hate Spiders and the picture about made me drop my phone
