Saw this in Texas, Coleman trailer being pulled with a 3500 2X Dodge dually with the Cummins.

The A/C unit had bowed the roof.

This is also a good reason to quit tent camping and buy a FR trailer.
Oh what the frig? What state was that in?

I wonder if the roof was bowed because of the weight of the A/C or if the roof had been weakened because of water damage?

I took the picture of that Wolf Spider at Hawn State Park (site #16) in Missouri. It was the biggest one Iíve ever seen.

So, I had a brainy idea, I got up on the roof (almost got blown off the roof) and took my belt off my pants and bound the awning against the RV.

As I was coming back off the roof down the ladder, my pants fell down.

Got 3 horn honks before I reached the bottom rung! LOL

Hope you had on that clean pair of underwear momma always told you to keep in the glove compartment!

Oh another thing it doesn't have a/c, it has only 10amps but it will go anywhere. Him and his wife are planning a Alaska trip this year, said he was driving the Dalton Highway.
