they must of had a bunch of stuff in the rear of the TV to sag that much, unless they had a lot of heavy stuff in the front storage area.

but i guessing that they had both for that much sag.

and that's probably a front wheel drive car!

Ya it is over loaded, but is the trailer to heavy for the rig or is the to much stuff in the TV.

Anyway I'd bet 5 bucks the dealer told them the rig would pull the trailer just fine.

Saw a lot of this during the weekend but mostly trucks with travel trailers...don't see how they feel comfortable driving a setup like this!

Even if they are occasional or once a season campers I just don't get how they don't know this is not normal. There are about 160 at this camp ground. What? They don't notice that no one else has this kind of setup? ASK SOMEONE!! You are looking to the sky from your drivers seat, but hey, that's cool! Amazing to me!

And I will bet $100 they don't care what the folks on FRF think.

p.s. I also bet they had just as much fun camping as all the "Safe" campers.

As long as I'm not following them or meeting them on a 2 lane road, they don't bother me. But I do keep an eye out for folks like that and try to steer clear of them.
